CROSS-BREED

Colonel Meow Is Latest Record-Breaker

The Guinness World Records revealed its latest record-breaker: Colonel Meow, the cat with the longest fur. At 22.87 cm (9 inches), the Himalayan-Persian cross-breed with grey and white fur will celebrate in his owners' home in Los Angeles. "We already knew that he was the best cat in the world, but to be recognized in the Guinness World Records book takes it to the next level," one of his owners, Anne Marie Avey, said. But there is a downside: "Literally everything in the house has hair on it, including us! I feel like I’m always vacuuming!"
