When I first got Luna and Miel at 8 weeks they were fluffy, especially Luna. Now, I wonder since it's more like just more hair on the back, and their haunches. Are they true long hairs, medium hairs or will just lose that hair?
Thanks!
(Sorry I didn't have a good picture but I hope this helps)

Looks like medium haired to me.

That being said, technically there's no such thing as 'medium' haired, since it's just a variant of the way the long haired gene expresses. So, while they may appear 'medium haired' they are genetically long haired.

Also, with any cat that has a longer coat it can/usually does take 3 years for the coat to fully develop. Torri looked truly silly until she was about a year old, and she has a lovely medium coat now. Her mane fully filled in just before she hit 3 years,

I would definitely say long-haired! In my experience, it takes long-haired animals almost a year to develop their full coat, and in some dog breeds (like Pomeranians) their coats are still developing until and sometimes beyond 2 years of age, so I'm sure it is possible in some cats as well.

My Ellie is a long-haired Persian and she was just sort of poofy as a kitten, but now at 11 months her coat nearly touches the ground.

Your kitties are absolutely adorable, by the way! :D

I think she'll turn out to have long hair.

When I brought Charlee home, she was a spikey little thing



Who would have thought she'd turn out so fluffy!

Oh wow, I'm actually surprised to hear that it can take quite some time to grow out the fur. Thanks for the responses! I can definitely see how your Charlee has changed, what a beautiful coat.

And Mandy and Ellie, your Ellie is just adorbs :) I'm really excited to see how these two will change. 9 months to go haha.
