The vet didn't notice my cat's coat

I wonder if my cat has a normal coat. It looks weird. And the vet said that he isn't too thin. She think he's normal. She didn't notice his coat, but I think it looks weird. Do you think his coat is normal? I ask you because the vet thinks he's healthy. And I don't have money for another vet.

Looks normal to me. Give him a good brush. If the vet says he is healthy then he will be.

@dya80dya Cats really dont like being put in a bath. Be careful. He could rip you to bits.

I think your cat's fur is fine. It's still a kitten, right?

@cacay1 I lost my cat Shadow when we moved to a new house. I'm planning to have another one if things are all fine.
It is really against all odds to let my son Shadow to take a bath. He was really an explorer lately. He managed to show his hunting skills at the brookside of...

@caopaopao He has renal problems. The vets don't know what is wrong with him, but the result of the test was really bad. He will have other tests done.

Yes, he's my cat. I am glad that you think his coat is strong. Maybe he is healthy, but stressed out.

I'm sure if there was something wrong with his coat, the vet would have said something. All cat breeds have different types of coats. I'm sure your cat is fine if the vet didn't say anything.

@just4him, you might be right. There's no comment from the vet so kitty has no problem then.

@cacay1 Don't worry about it. If her hair wasn't healthy, your vet would have noticed.

all I see is a clean cat. I don't know what you see there. I would not get another vet unless you saw something different.

I am seeing a messy coat. He usually doesn't have this coat. This is something new for him. I took the cat to another vet. And the cat is sick.

@sharon6345 On Monday he will have other tests. Now the vet doesn't know what he has. I will be ok if I will have some good news about my cat.

Has it always been like this or is this something fairly recent @dya80dya ? Can you tell if there is any white flaking in the coat? It could be indicating dry skin.

@Moon24 Yes. I found another one, but it is so expensive. The cat had some tests, but the results were bad. On Monday I will go to the vet again. My cat has problems, but I don't know how serious they are.
