This is Merlin one of the mancats of The Fluffy Tribe, feeling a little blue and boxed in. The photo was edited in Photosuite, and the frame was from that collection as well.

Whisker Smarts: There are roughly 12 mystacials (upper lip whiskers) on each side of your muzzle, mostly for navigation.

Superciliary (above the eyes) and genal (cheek) whiskers trigger protective eye blinks and warn of danger.

Carpal (wrist) whiskers help capture prey and aid in climbing.

Whisker Follicles embed three times deeper beneath the skin than normal hairs.

Churchill's Mombean had asked about bathing him, so starting on Monday, we will begin a five part series on the correct way to take a B-A-T-H when it involves the wet water stuff.

Maggy & Zoey said...

Can you email the text from your various posts on whiskers please. That may be part of the issue between Maggy & Zoey's bad relationship; we noticed that they must have "accidentally" clipped ALL the whiskers on one side of her face when they did the grooming/shave... and I'd like to know more. Maybe Zoey is not at all feeling herself due to this loss... do you have any idea from your research on how long it may take for them to fully grow back?
Thanks for any help you can give us on this; or if easier, send any links you found this information at...
