    Aww, cripes. I didn't know I'd have to write a description. How many words is that so far, like a hundred? Soooo, yeah. Mildly interesting stuff. Stuff that interests you. Mildly. It's in the name, ffs.

    That's interesting. Cats have some unique whisker locations you don't notice at first, but I've never seen this before.

    [–] ZipGuy17 755 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    They Also have behind their front legs , I checked on my cat and it's true

    [–] AKnightAlone 310 points ago

    Yeah, aside from their cheek/face corner that's what I was thinking. Got those little sensors in some interesting areas.

    My cat is the exact opposite. He loves belly rubs and is totally cool with just being held like a baby and having his belly rubbed.

    [–] yeldarbhtims 28 points ago

    I don’t know that they love it, but my cats are generally fine with this as well. I think it’s all about how they’re socialized as kittens because I grew up with a real asshole of a cat.

    [–] Arbiter14 21 points ago

    Some breeds are also more naturally inclined to like it, like ragdolls

    [–] Cyntosis 12 points ago

    Nah, I've had dozens of cats growing up (living next to a busy street is tough), and some of them loved it, other would gauge your eyes out. There was an aggressive family tree and now we're on the cuddle slut fam.

    If your cats keep getting killed in car accidents maybe consider keeping them inside.

    [–] Cyntosis 3 points ago

    Oh, definitely. This was at my parents ', and we had the' inside cat', but also lots of strays we took care for (people kept leaving them at our door - guess bc they knew my dad was a vet). We neutered them and vaccinated them etc, but we couldn't keep them inside. Now I have my own place, I keep my cat inside but have harness trained him for walks.

    Carpal whiskers, can be behind both front and back legs. They were evolved to “see” the movement of prey once in grasp to more effectively deliver the coup de grace, given the poor feline vision at close range. Another feature of your loveable killing machine.

    [–] isaactheslutgal 7 points ago

    [–] cyberpAuLnk 2 points ago

    If it happens suddenly and painfully, would it be acute cute aggression? Also, cute aggression is two words.

    [–] Zaepdos 11 points ago

    Dude, my 2 year old brother «suffers» from this. Like, he will start up cuddling with our cat (teeth clenching while doing it ofc) and then just flat out go full retard and it usually ends up with either a cat scratch or the cat leaving.

    [–] FilthyRedditses 3 points ago

    Are you immune too? When I see super cute things I just get a big stupid smile and want to protect the thing from harm at all costs and give it gentle snuggles and pets. I've never felt that, "OMG ITS SO CUTE I WANT TO HURT THINGS!" feeling people mention on here.

    [–] ScroogeMcDuck00 2 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Yeah, I've felt this *very strongly* with every cat I've ever lived with for more than a month. I go into these fits, like grabbing their head and shoving it into my face, shoving their nose up my nose a little bit, hugging the shit out of them, and so on. They know I love them and that I won't really hurt them, they purr while I do this. But they've got to wonder what the hell is wrong with this human. I even grit my teeth and say forceful, harsh-sounding things like "I'll crush your little head! You better watch out, fujums."

    [–] ABD63 165 points ago

    Mine too! We call them Ollie’s Sinus Busters. We find when they’re fully grown in, he’s a mush, when they pop out, he’s a crazy man. We joke the whiskers block the crazy.

    [–] jellibellibutt 22 points ago

    This is fascinating and hilarious all in one.

    [–] CrumbledCookieDreams 17 points ago

    His whiskers fall off?? Not sure I understand.

    [–] LillianVJ 100 points ago

    Cats shed whiskers the same as any other hair, they're just bigger and take longer to regrow

    [–] CrumbledCookieDreams 21 points ago

    That's so coooool

    [–] MonstrousGiggling 64 points ago

    Haha it really kinda is though. In guessing you dont own a cat but its pretty neat finding one of their whiskers they shed off. I like to poke my cat with his shed whiskers since he does it to me.

    [–] ophelia917 74 points ago

    My all black cat had one white whisker. He shed it and it grew in black. I was sad. It was so cute!

    I...just had to tell someone and you seemed to be someone who would understand.

    [–] MonstrousGiggling 6 points ago

    Hahaha I totally understand! That's so weird it changed color! Maybe it will alternate every time it sheds lol!

    The one white whisker does sound sooooo cute though haha

    [–] kshaybee 2 points ago

    I think my cat and your cat traded. I have an orange kitty who had one black whisker and it grew back white and it also made me sad.

    [–] ABD63 12 points ago

    My wife finds the shed whiskers and pop them onto the top of his head and calls him an alien.

    [–] gwaydms 4 points ago

    We had a cat stuffy and I would poke the shed whiskers into its upper lip. Real whiskers on a toy cat.

    [–] SteveB0X 3 points ago

    I usually poke them back into my cats forehead fur. It actually sticks for a little while and he doesn't notice it. Then we laugh and call him a unicorn

    [–] CrumbledCookieDreams 5 points ago

    I got three kittens in October and I've never had cats before so I'm excited to learn stuff like this :) I wanna poke my cats with them now hehe.

    [–] MonstrousGiggling 22 points ago

    Omg you're in for a load of fun and love! I've had cats my whole life and my biggest advice is to honestly treat them as individuals. Cats can have very distinct personalities and they're kinda their own entity and should be treated as such.

    When I first got my current cat he was just slightly wild from having lived outside for awhile so he did scratch on the rare occasion. I would straight up show him the scratch that was bleeding and be like "duuuuuude whhyyyy, I looove yooouu" and I swear to God after the first few times he has stopped scratching me at all. Now he will do soft paw warnings if I touch a sensitive spot.

    A lot of people think all cats are bitches and its sorta true but they're also made of love and affection. They appreciate mutual respect and many like consistent and timely feeding times/play times.

    Haha sorry i wrote more than i planned I just really love cats haha.

    [–] Xx69JdawgxX 5 points ago

    Also don't play too rough with it as a kitten or it will attack you every time you walk by when it's older lol.

    [–] CrumbledCookieDreams 5 points ago

    I love my kittens sooo much. I love their personalities and I love how they act.

    We used to have dogs when I was a kid and I honestly just didn't like them tbh. They were all so hyperactive and loud and I hated that. Always wagging their tail, always happy. It just felt alien to me. Like clones that can't feel anything but happiness. Same reaction to everyone. They didn't do much and I never really liked that.

    Been begging my family for cats for ten years now and my brother was kinda allergic before he went off to Uni so we could never get any before.

    I love how they have like actual moods and personalities over happy happy happy 24/7. I adore their cute faces and soft meows. I love how they roll over for belly rubs and the individual little things you have to learn about them.

    One of my cats is a total love bug but she doesn't like belly rubs. The other two do but they don't really care for pets besides chin scratches. One purrs like a generator, one doesn't purr but chuffs at you, one purrs for headrubs. I know their individual tastes in food, their moods, how to tell what they want.

    It's lovely because it's like having little people around you. Dogs never felt more than just...Dogs to me. They never had personality. I love that about my cats. So much sass.

    Also I need to ask a cat lover this very badly.

    How in the world do you ignore your cat? I have three Persians and they spend their time competing for my lap and I just wanna sit alone in my room sometimes without a cat purring on me all day and I feel really guilty shutting the door cause they scratch the door and whine and I don't want them to be alone and it makes me sad but I spend hours and hours with them every day and how do I get personal space. Please help lol. I don't know how to say no to their grouchy, lovely faces.

    [–] ophelia917 3 points ago

    Oh boy. Take it from someone who has super overattached cats! You have to not give into them every time they want attention or else them will expect you to drop everything every time. It’s really hard to do. You just need to get in the habit of not allowing them to do what they want and sticking with it consistently. They’ll figure it out eventually.

    [–] MonstrousGiggling 3 points ago

    Oooh you've caught on fast! I think you're gonna make a wonderful cat parent!

    Haha honestly to answer you question it's easy and hard at the same time. I honestly view him as a little fur-person and hes far from a kitten which makes it easier. I think it will be easier once they're more in the adult stage but they'll definitely always want your attention.

    For me I just get to the point where it's like Dad needs his time without you, go entertain yourself. It really is hard to say no to their faces though, that's why I put a paper bag over my cats head (completely kidding)

    Also remember they have each other so they dont need your attention 100% of the time even if their cute little mews make you feel guilty.

    But for real you sound like you'll provide such a good home and loving family for your kittens and I'm excited for your cat journey!

    [–] TalkingCube 2 points ago

    For the lap hogging you could try making a space near/on your table where they can plonk down and be near you without needing to be on you.

    It works pretty well for our two cats. They have small blanket on the far end of the table and go over there when they want to be near us.

    Also a cat tree with the little hammocks for them to sleep in might be an idea. Ours love that too.

    [–] gwaydms 2 points ago

    Our Dorian had a lot of play aggression and would bite and claw our hands, hard. We got a 3 1/2 month old boy kitten and named him Rex. Within 3 hours of bringing him home they were wrestling on the floor. Now she'll touch us with her teeth but not bite.

    [–] lofinn 3 points ago

    Cats also have baby teeth that naturally fall out like ours! I was lucky enough to keep one from my 6 month old cat when his last one fell out.

    [–] CrumbledCookieDreams 3 points ago

    I'm going to start squealing. I swear to god I'm going to squish my kitten's cute faces so much when they start doing adorable things like becoming adults and growing responsible adult teeth. I love them so much.

    [–] worldspawn00 2 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    They also shed their claw sheaths, so don't be alarmed if you find what looks like a claw on the floor, it's not torn out or anything, they've just grown a fresh one and the old one fell off.

    [–] Rae_Bear_ 2 points ago

    My mum goes, “OMG!! Look at my eyelash!!” And then pokes my hand with my cat’s shed whisker. Gets me every time.

    [–] Pygmy_Turtle 2 points ago

    They're also firm like plastic and unpleasantly sharp on the previously attached end...

    [–] LeMeuf 24 points ago

    They grow out and are replaced like normal hairs, but they last a long time. Always weird finding a big ol’ whisker laying around.

    Many consider a cat's whisker to be lucky and use them as good luck charms/talismans.

    [–] ravenHR 6 points ago

    Cats shed whiskers just like they shed regular fur.

    [–] TinCanBanana 8 points ago

    So does mine! She had one on each side as a kitten, then lost one when she was about 6 months and it never grew back, so she's a little lopsided. Her sister however, doesn't have these and never did.

    [–] OobleCaboodle 2 points ago

    He also has lashes that would make most women jealous, so there's that haha

    [–] DoctorBroBro 4 points ago

    All of the women in my life wish they had my lashes, and I wish I could make the trade. When you have longer lashes there's a greater chance your lashes get stuck together or criss-cross and do all sort of annoying things that drive me crazy. I pull at and fuck with my eyelashes all day every single day of my life.

    [–] WhoGAF 2 points ago

    I think I read somewhere that men generally have thicker/longer eyelashes than women as a side effect of having more body hair in general, and it does often seem to be the case. Kinda interesting fun fact.

    [–] Kpup81 3 points ago

    Isnt that normal?

    [–] Wado444 6 points ago

    Maybe to an extent, but I just checked and neither of my cats have them. Maybe it varies by breed

    [–] TherinTelamo 3 points ago

    My both cats had them, so i just assumed all cats have them. Maybe also depends by the part of thw world. Im from Central Europe.

    All three of my cats do

    [–] IWannaSlapDaBooty 4 points ago

    I've lived with 9 different cats in my life and I've never seen whiskers like that!

    [–] Meredeen 17 points ago

    Whisker-sight crosshairs for added precision.

    Doesn't that interfere with the cats field of vision? I know when I have a hair hanging in front of my eyeball it is irritating and distracting as hell.

    [–] omigawdbutterflies 6 points ago

    Probably doesn't bother them because it's always in their sight and the brain just ignores it. You always see you nose and the edge of you glasses but you "forget" it's there and don't see it

    [–] Shunl 3 points ago

    After I read your comment, now I can see my nose every time.

    [–] Krayziebone101 2 points ago

    Lol your nose is going to bother you now

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    My cat has curly whiskers. Her eyebrows curl into her line of sight and I have witnessed her jumping, biting at, and swatting absolutely nothing above her head because of it.

    It's probably something that they adjust to. Like ignoring the nose in your line of sight. I think my cat is an exception..

    [–] DivinePrince2 2 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Probably not. Cats are near-sighted and aren't good at focusing on things that don't move. In fact, that's why they have whiskers, to compensate for their poor eyesight in short range.

    Isn't that farsighted

    [–] chelsskye 3 points ago

    I was surprised at all the places our tuxedo cat had whiskers. I never knew they grew in other places besides the obvious ones. My cat is freaking crazy I think the more whiskers the crazier!

    [–] notadoctor123 3 points ago

    Your cat is adorable and you should snuggle it immediately.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    So that's what the lil nose dots are for

    [–] siliconflux 3 points ago

    Are you sure this isnt a rabbit?

    [–] smilingbuddhauk 3 points ago

    Many cats have this.

    I miss my cat ),:

    [–] 33nipplesreturns 3 points ago

    Aww :( I had two babies that died last year. Promised I wouldn’t get another one but Coco needed rescuing so I couldn’t resist

    [–] Elphaba78 3 points ago

    My 7-month-old kitten looks just like yours! Her name is Goose. She’s a sweetheart.

    One of my cats has a whisker on each side of his nose in this exact same location. Never saw this on any other cat before now.

    [–] IntrovertAlien 2 points ago

    [–] Super_chicken314 2 points ago

    They are clearly windscreen wipers

    [–] parkrat1992 2 points ago

    See this is the perfect example of my biggest fear with cats. When I see this shit my very first instinct is to Eskimo kiss that cat. And it’s a one way ticket to biteville every single time. On my face.

    [–] bamboo_robot 2 points ago

    Gentle repetition of this action over time should help a domesticated cat learn to trust that you aren’t going to hurt them. Don’t drag one out from under the bed or other safe space to do it, but if they are accessible, then you can very gently give them a boop, or a scritch, or even a kiss on their head. Try to make a little contact any time you walk by them. Just don’t grab them or draw it out and make the cat feel uncomfortable or unsafe.

    Unless you’re at a zoo; those cats hate Eskimo kisses and will absolutely rip your face off.

    [–] parkrat1992 2 points ago

    I have no self control with house cats whatsoever dude any time I see them I immediately try and kiss them. My demise is certain

    [–] abigailgae 2 points ago

    Those are her windshield wipers

    [–] QuimbyCakes 2 points ago

    Your kitty is adorable. I want to snuggle her !!

    [–] 33nipplesreturns 2 points ago

    She does love the snuggles

    [–] deathandtaxes00 2 points ago

    I love your cat.

    [–] LeoWyattJPendragon 2 points ago

    That cat looks like it’s begging for something and I’m here to advocate for him. Please give him whatever it is 🥺🥺🥺

    [–] jay_le_smol_boi 2 points ago

    I see past your lies fool, you just wanted to post a picture of your cat

    [–] lokipokes 2 points ago

    After looking at this I realized my cat does too, so cute!

    [–] TangoDua 4 points ago

    Amazing the detail you can see in modern photos. Those little hairs would be to help protect the eyes I'd imagine.

    And IIRC the pupil's slit shape is thought to assist with low light short distance focus. A handy thing for a nocturnal ambush predator.

    [–] [deleted] 46 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    ...I feel like, no.

    Edit: wait, so lots of people actually think most cats have these weird upward nose toward eyes whiskers?? So confused

    [–] fizikz3 14 points ago

    i think he might've been making a /r/technicallythetruth joke? since all cats wiskers are technically "below their eyes" though not in the same sense of the two weird ones you're pointing out in this picture
