Dear Fancy,

I’m intrigued by my cat Humphrey’s whiskers. They look so distinguished. I’m sure they have other uses besides being a kitty fashion accessory. I figured you’d be the one to ask about them.

Dear Mara,

We felines are quite fond of our whiskers. They serve us well. They’re an important component of our super sensory system, feeding us information about our environment at all times. We also point them forward or backward in certain situations, so they’re part of our body language. For a more in-depth look at these fascinating and functional feline appendages, please check out this article WHY CATS HAVE WHISKERS.
