Cat with the Longest Fur : Colonel Meow - Guinness World Record holder cat

Colonel Meow -  Guinness World Record holder cat

Colonel Meow, a Himalayan-Persian cross-breed holds the world record for longest fur on a cat.

The two-year old has fur that reaches 22.87cm (9in).

The incredible feline from Seattle, Washington, USA was named ‘Colonel Meow’ by his owners, Anne Marie Avey and Eric Rosario, because of his “epic frown and fur”.

Anne Marie 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.”

However, there is a considerable downside to her record-breaking cat:  “Literally everything in the house has hair on it, including us!  I feel like I’m always vacuuming!”

Colonel Meow, who was adopted as a rescue cat from the Himalayan & Persian Society, needs his fur brushed 2–3 times a week, and it takes both Anne and Eric to complete the job.

The couple say that they never use products on Colonel Meow’s fur, applying only water and brushes if he gets dirty.
