My cat Hiei sniffed a candle as a kitten and burned the whiskers off half of his face. He never did that again.

4/4 I love my kitties! My boyfriend accidently cut my cat's whiskers with his beard trimmer and she was all clumsy for 6 months!

2/4 but it should have been 3/4 but my #2 answer didn't take for some reason...

whiskers help your cat balance himself, you don't want to trim them.

Too funny I picked up Ursula and counted her whiskers and my little freak has only 16 whiskers on each side! Defective but cute. And OMG my youngest nephew once called himself taking care of his when he was 6 and he cut all of her whiskers off. He shaved her with his dad's electric shaver and the dopey cat sat their and let him. She was seriously messed up after that until they grew back. The cat would fall over.

My dog Jeffrey for whatever reason has the shortest stubbiest whiskers ever. They are probably only 3/4 of an inch long. I dont get it
