my 6 monts siamese males coat looks a little not normal too me ,his coat looks like he is a hedgehog, the hairs are not all smooth and together, the coat is like separated in small amount of hair(coat) and it stays kind of lifted, like a hedgehog, not smooth and all together,what is this,what can cause this,it could be from food, he likes wet food a lot,in the last time i changed dry food a lot,trying to find a perfect food, and he does not eat too much dry,does not drink too much water,before he was drinking very much water and was peeing a lot, now not too much, a realy hope to get some answers for my questions,thank you

binussha- there is a possibility, from your description, that your cat is dehydrated- with the decrease in urination and what sounds like a dry, brittle coat. Some of what you are seeing may also be normal, with his adult coat coming in over the kitten coat. I would strongly recommend getting him to the vet as soon as possible to make sure he is healthy. Good luck!
