Crimped fur

Hiya.

What does it mean when a kitten/cats fur is crinkled.
It looks like he has just had crimpers put through it!

It is like that all of the time!
I was just wondering if it meant anything. Like long hair maybe? He doesnt look long haired mind. :confused:

Kittens just have crimp-y fur, lol. It's their undercoat/baby coat and it will grow out.

Some adult cats do have a larger, less obvious, wave...but IME it usually grows out.

Winston had what I called "crunchy fur" it was kind of rough and I guess what you describe as crimpy. Once he got older it changed to silky smooth.

Dexter used to have that but over the last few weeks he's been growing out of it. His coat is really smooth now.

Lacey's fur is straight on top and sides, but her bum is crimped! It really is so cute looking. Nothing like a girl with a cute bottom!! =0
