The Guinness World Records have publicized a sneak peak of their upcoming 2014 edition with the introduction of Colonel Meow, the cat with the longest fur. The Himalayan-Persian cross-breed has fur reaching an amazing length of 22.87 centimetres (9 inches).
He needs his fur brushing two to three times a week, however his owners say they never use any cleaning products on Colonel Meow’s fur, except water and brushes if he is dirty.
His owner Anne, said: “We already knew that he was the best cat in the world, but to be recognised in the Guinness World Records book takes it to the next level.”
Colonel Meow, who was given his interesting name because of his “epic frown and fur”, has already become an internet sensation this year with the launch of his own website, Facebook page and YouTube channel that has received over two million views. His appearance in the records book will just top off his amazing year, though his owners recognise a downside to the cause of his fame, commenting: “Literally everything in the house has hair on it, including us! I feel like I’m always vacuuming!”
