I really didn't think this fit in Health and Nutrition, but if I'm wrong, feel free to move it.
My questions is, do cats typically get longer fur in certain areas as they get older?
Jinx is just a regular short haired cat, he'll be 3 in few months. Anyway, he was always very sleek and shorthaired, but a few months ago, I noticed the fur on his belly started to grow longer (making him look bulkier around the tummy). Along with this, he's getting longer fur around his bottom, like on the backs of his legs. Then last night, I was playing with his paws, and realized he's starting to get fur tufts between the toes. I just trimmed his claws a couple weeks ago, and there weren't really any tufts then.
Is it just him, or is it common?
EDIT: I doubt it's anything to worry about, but correct me if I'm wrong. Healthwise everything seems absolutely normal, and his toileting, eating, and behavior are all the same as ever. (Except the longer breeches tend to trap a little more litterbox residue
