Shorty has recently developed a mohawk that seems to be perment I don't know if it will ever go away I have heard it may make him more adoptable but Shorty has had it for awhile now his fur from the top of his neck and all the way down his back is a mohawk and I was wondering what could be causing this and if it is a bad thing or if it is just nothing to worry about What Do you think? Also The weather around here is not dry at all right now it has been raining every single day very hard and alot So saying that what could it be?

I think it's a fairly common issue with DSHs. The guard hairs become a little longer than the undercoat and give the cat's fur a spiky look. The head and back seem to be where it most commonly occurs. It becomes even more obvious when the air is very dry, like in winter when the house is closed up and heated.
