Janfur and Junfur

Janfur and junfur (Catfinition):  Refers to a cat’s seasonal coats. Originating in Australia, junfur refers to a cat’s thickest coat, grown to keep it warm in winter, and janfur is the coat’s lighter, summer coat. In regions north of the equator, the situation is reversed, and the janfur is grown in winter to keep the coat warm, while the junfur comes in during the summer month’s.

In Use: “Quinn’s thick, luxurious janfur, grown to cope with Oregon’s cold winters, had given way to a thinner, lighter, and shorter junfur. He appeared to lose ten pounds after his janfur was gone.”
