A Persian long hair in Seattle named Colonel Meow set the record. His hair stretches 9 inches. It's not that crazy for that breed of cat. His owners swear that Colonel is not using any product.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene, feeling like we've heard nothing about cat videos or cats on the air recently. So I bring you this: A Persian Longhair in Seattle who has set the Guinness Record for long hair. Colonel Meow is his name. His hair stretches nine inches - not that crazy for cats of his breed. On the football field, though, the Colonel could make Pittsburgh Steelers' Troy Polamalu's do look like a buzz cut. But his owners swear the Colonel is not using any product at all.
