Made it by a whisker!


Do you love cats?

I love cats.

But I don’t have cats as pets.

Cat owners have seen their cat purr when they are content and happy. I understand it’s a positive interaction with you.

Food for thought

How many whiskers do cats have?

What a silly question!

Who has got time to think or count physically?

It’s OK. Relax!

Cats are born with 24 whiskers (two sets of 12 whiskers arranged in four lines on either side of their on their face.

If you have a cat as a pet try to count and tell me whether this source is correct or not.

Never try to pull the whisker, it’s very painful to the cat.

What do cat whiskers do?

My friend, they are everything to your cat.

And you are nothing to your cat.

“As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.” Elen Perry Berkeley

  • Whispers are their sensory equipment (radar sensors) helping the cat through daily functions.
  • They can provide outlines of the prey.
  • These whiskers help regarding sense of touch    in a better position to evaluate their environment) and also orientation (Body balancers)
  • It is said that these whiskers help cats 🙀to judge whether they can fit through small spaces.
  • Whiskers communicate emotions (a happy cat elevates the whiskers above the eyes, when aggressive they are forward pointing and tense)

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. Cats are born with 24 whiskers (two sets of 12 whiskers arranged in four lines on either side of their on their face.

    I can confirm (having just counted them) that vIghro’wIj (my cat) has twelve whiskers on each side of his mouth. I would describe them as being arranged in three (vertical) lines of four.

    He also has four whiskers above each of his eyes – so that makes 32 in all, not 24.

    I suppose it depends (as with so many things) how you look at it.

    And you are nothing to your cat.

    I honestly believe that vIghro’wIj would disagree with that.

    1. Haha😀😀
      Thank you for taking the trouble to count the number and also the arrangement of the whiskers of vIghro’wIj
      I appreciate both of you for your patience.
      I know that vIghro’wIj will disagree with my statement and is angry. It’s perfectly OK.
      Tell her I agree with her.
      True, what you said. Things depend on how we look at it.
