Hundred eighty-seventh post


Never noticed the long hairs from his elbows before.


  1. Weird. I'm going to go home and check Miko for "elbow feelers".

  2. Tell me if she has them. (^_^)

    The other day my mom discovered Chicago's got a feeler coming out of his right shoulder-ish area. Only the right shoulder.

  3. Ok I checked... she does have them! WEIRD.It's fun to still discover things about our babies even after soo many years.

    I've also tried to google what they do but I'm probably searching under the wrong thing—apparently "cat arm whisker" doesn't cut it lol.

  4. Ooh! Maybe it's a Maine Coon thing? Hmm... Will have to look into it. (^_^)

  5. According to you can find whiskers or Vibrassae on each upper lip, each side of the nose, each cheek, tufts over the eyes, bristles on the chin, the cat's inner wrists, and the back of the legs.

    As previously thought, they help aid in navigation and sensation by detecting touch and vibrations in the air!

  6. Wikipedia also said they are all over kitty's body.

    On closer inspection, Chicago's got thick white hairs sprinkled around his shoulders.(^_^)
