    Whiskers

    I've been looking at older pictures of Remus and it seems as if his whiskers have grown a little bit, or at leas have changed shape...

    Am I crazy?

    When I first got him


    Today


    Notice the increased curve in his whiskers lol. Sigh its hard to believe Ive had him since July, thats four months now! He sure has grown a lot though in such a short time!

    They say that a cat's whiskers are supposed to be as wide as the cat is wide, they are supposed to help guide them and when they are out hunting, etc it lets them know holes and crevices they should be able to fit through. So technically, a really fat cat should have really long whiskers. I notice that my big Allen boy has l-o-n-g whishers, and the little Pouncer has been developing some loger ones lately too.

    LOL You should see Max's whiskers. They start on his chin and curl up so they almost poke him in the eye. Then again, he's a Persian and all his whiskers are curled up.

    Nosekissies to you Remus.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    I'm sorry to change the subject, but I just noticed Remus's little white toesies. They are so adorable. That is the first time I have seen a cat with just white toes. Well, that I can recall anyway.

    Remus DOES have super long and curved whiskers!! I know about the whisker/size thing but it doesn't realy seem to make sense in lots of cases. I mean - take Dylan. He is....uh...er....FLUFFY and geting fluffier all the time. But I don't see his whiskres expanding with his plushness. Then I am thinking about Pete (CCL) He has the longest whiskers I have ever seen and yet he is a rather sleek cat!
    Something to ponder
    or we can wait for RICHARD he is a great ponderer.
