Can I cut my cat's whiskers?

Absolutely not! A cat's whiskers should be left entirely alone. They are a sophisticated piece of cat anatomy that are connected directly to the nervous system.

They are extremely sensitive, so much so that they can detect air currents that flow around objects in the dark to help guide a cat.

They can "feel" for the correct vertebra in the prey's neck to guide the canine teeth to bite in the correct place to kill the prey by severing the spinal cord. They occasionally shed like ordinary fur. That is normal.
