Question
my daughter wants to know how many hairs does a cat have?

Answer
Hi Lauren,
Cats actually don't have 'hair', they have 'fur'.  Very dense, each pore can contain anywhere from 7 to 22 'hairs'.  I think it's pretty much  impossible to calculate exact numbers, just suffice to say quite ALOT!
Hope this will be helpful.
Thanks again for your question.
