Question
my cat seems healthy but over the last few weeks hes been losing his whiskers, Im worried that he could get caught somewhere's. He lost of his large one in one week, should I be scared, please help  

Answer
Hi

I wouldn't worry. Cat whiskers are really only the same as cat hair but much thicker. And like cat hair they can shed them from time to time. It may just be that a couple have come out at the same time. They will grow back over time.

best wishes Kate
