Have you ever been woken up at 4 am in the morning by a pair of whiskers tickling your face? Though your cat may be the cutest thing on earth, nobody likes those early morning calls! Those whiskers aren't just an alarm for you to wake up. Neither are they a fashion accessory which helps beautify your baby's sweet little face.
These whiskers, or the vibrissae, are more like sensory receptors. What's so amazing about these are that they aren't just present on your kitty's face but they are also found on their legs and the lower jaw line. And those things which you think look like eyebrows are actually your cat's whiskers as well.
