whiskers?

i just noticed my kitten has 4 long whiskers on one side and only one on the other, does it make any difference? i don't know what happened to them, and will they grow again?

Whiskers fall out and grow back just like hair.

A former step-niece got a hold of a pair of scissors when she was 4 and cut her cats whiskers off. Her Mom caught her just as she clipped the other side. The cat didn't act any differently and they grew back! Thankfully! Poor kitty!

Souvenirs?

Maybe he's thinking one day they'll come out with a way to reattach the whiskers? With all the technology we have, anything's possible!

Yeah, one time I accidently cut one side of Baby's whiskers off, but it seems like they grew back. I have a couple of her whiskers in a scrapbook.
