Are cats supposed to lose whiskers?

The answer is an emphatic - YES. Cats occasionally lose a whisker or two here and there. If you live with a cat you will see them on the bed or on the floor from time to time. This must be part of normal shedding, I would have thought.

Whiskers are extremely sensitive. They are connected to the nervous system. They are very useful to a cat and an essential piece of anatomy. They should not be interfered with in anyway - i.e. clipped or trimmed. Read more about a cat's whiskers on this page.
