A cat with 9-inch long hair? Yes, its fur real. 

The Himalayan-Persian mix known as Colonel Meow has found a place inside 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.
