    Does your cat get his / her winter coat ?

    I swear right about now, every year, my white cat's coat looks fuller and courser.  Maybe white cats originally lived in frigid climates, and that's why she gets a heavier coat than my other cats. And maybe they're from environments where there was a LOT of white, deep snow for months .........therefore, their color of white camouflaged them in the snow.

    Peanut is a year-round thick-furred, fluffy cat, spewing hairballs and shedding all year long.  Her fur never gets coarser or thicker, but our temperatures are not as extreme as yours. 

    James and I were just talking about this last night. Both of our cats have thicker, fuller coats all of the sudden. Maybe Texas is going to have a winter after all!

    We can only hope. Nice and cool past two mornings and days. 5 inches of rain too.

    Yep, I’m bringing all my coats (rarely worn) out of storage. And hasn’t it been beautiful outside?

    Jh, To your 1st answer - - --Yup. It could mean that. Maybe our animals know more about the upcoming weather than we do. It's meaningful that you and James noticed the thicker, winter coat right about at the time that I did .

    so cute.

    My boy cats coat in coarser than my females coat, I think that's because he spends more time outside. Both of them have thicker coats the winter.
