Do cat’s whiskers fall out? — 3 Comments

  1. I’m curious to know why my little, ginger female hasvery long, mainly white whiskers, but always has a couple of random black ones.

    Can anyone explain the genetics for that to me please?

    • Michelle, if I can figure out an answer to your question I will respond to your comment properly. In all my travels through all the books that I have read about the domestic cat and cat anatomy I do not recall reading about the lack of pigmentation in cat’s whiskers. I will try and research this matter today and may do an article on it. Thanks for asking.

  2. oh yes they do!! I have quite a collection of them in a cat ladder that was to be used as an earring tree/pin cushion. I occasionally use them to tickle the *kids* noses! The black ones I find are, by far, the hardest to see, but I have gotten some. I even found the baby teeth of one of my *kids* and kept them as well. . .that is a rare find as they usually swallow them. . . ♥♥♥
