Hello...I know as kittens age they change, like there coat might get fluffy or shorter, and their color could change. But at around what age can you be sure your kitten will stay the way he is...I have a kitten about 7 months old...give or take...and just when I thought he was getting shorter hair, it now seems fluffier.(also his tail hair is a lot longer and fluffier then his body hair...will the body hair eventually catch up or vice versa?) how long will he go through changes? I've never owned cats before the two i have now, so i was just curious...thanks!

Hi Winnie. It really depends on the kind of cat you have. Some cats will grow into their final stage at about a year. While others may take two years. Cats will however gain more fur during the colder months and shed fur during the warmer months. Meaning they will be fluffier at times and less fluffy at other times. Also good health and nutrition play a vital role in the condition of their fur. So, if they are sick or eat poor quality food their fur may change for the worse. The opposite would be true for good health and nutrition. I'm sure your kitty will be beautiful/handsome in all the stages of his development.
