      Fur real: Colonel Meow's 9-inch hair sets record

      LOS ANGELES (AP) This is fur real. Colonel Meow has 9-inch hair.That's good enough to put the Himalayan-Persian mix into the 2014 edition of the Guinness World Records book, due out Sept. 12.Owners Anne Marie Avey and Eric Rosario, of Los Angeles, say the 2-year-old cat got its name because of his epic frown and fur. It takes both of them to brush the cat's fur three times a week.Three independent veterinarians verified the length of the colonel's hair and submitted their findings to Guinness before he won the title.Avey says the 10-pound cat has his own website, Facebook page and YouTube channel with more than 2 million views.Avey says there's one other thing Colonel Meow does quite well too: He sheds up a storm.___View more photos at Colonel Meow's Facebook page >>
