On a good day, your cat’s one and only outfit will have a subtle, smooth shine.
Cats that put tongue to fur for regular grooming sessions will have skin that is supple and clear, rather than greasy or flaky.
Cats can totally have bad hair days, but an increase in shedding or hair loss is a cause for concern.
— Angela Hughes, Science Advocacy Senior Manager at Mars Petcare
Coats vary greatly based on a cat’s breed and other factors. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Long haired breeds like Persians and Maine Coons may need a little assistance keeping their luxurious coats tangle-free, even when healthy.
For short haired cats, hair that is coarse, brittle or dull may be an indicator of more serious changes in your cat’s health.
If your cat has little to no hair, watch for changes in skin color. Some change is normal; however, spots or rapid pigment changes are worth looking into.
