In the past year or so, we've been introduced to Grumpy Cat, Lil Bub, and now it's Colonel Meow.   The 2-year-old Himalayan-Persian has just been awarded the Guinness Book of World Record's "Longest Fur" honor.   The feline's fur measures a full 9 inches.

The "Longest Fur on a Cat" is a new category that appears for the first time in the 2014 edition of the famous book.
