Thus, in winter, the cat will wear a fur denser and therefore warmer, while in summer, his fur will be lighter, more airy.

It is also interesting to know that house cats are less affected by moulting than cats can freely go outdoors, the former being less concerned by the changes in temperature than the latter.

Physiologically, like breeding periods, moulting periods are influenced by daylight. The shorter the days, the more the cat will put on his winter coat, and conversely, the longer the days go by, the lighter his coat will be for the summer.

However, be careful not to confuse moulting period and skin disease. The loss of hair during a period of moulting is done in a uniform manner. The cat should not have holes in his coat, or even scabs or pimples. If this is the case, it is obviously necessary to consult a veterinarian.
