Cat hair length

Hello all, I had a question. A while ago, I showed a friend a picture of my cats Luna and miel , and she noted how fluffy they were, but also mentioned it might be because of winter...I was curious...these are 8 month kittens...do you think this is normal hair growth, and not just seasonal?

I am no expert but I would say this is normal but maybe a bit thicker due to season but not much.... your cats BTW are gorgeous

Looks like normal hair growth for medium haired cats to me. With med/long haired cats it can take until they're 3 to get their full coat in. Torri definitely gets a fuller coat during the winter too.

Oooh, Jadis! I just had to say your kitties do indeed look fabulous! Love their fluffy coats and coloration on both!

Seems you've been doing a wonderful job in caring for these two!

That's so sad. Do you miss your wife much?

Just remember when you get a new wife, she'll have to be slowly introduced to the cats. So, keep her in one room until she acclimates and then introduce her slowly to the rest of the house.

See if you can get her to bat paws through the door with the cats... that might help with positive reinforcement.. also try feeding her right by the door with them eating on the other side.

Both beautiful medium longhaired cats showing normal hair growth. Love your brown torbie girl's colouring, and very nice colouring on your red tabby boy I presume? They both may have longer coats as they mature into their second year, especially for winter season. Are they from the same litter?
