Sunday Selfies: Whisker Wonders

For today's Sunday Selfie blog hop, hosted by our good furiends over at The Cat on My Head, my furbabies decided to let their whiskers have the driving seat.





Have any of our furiends ever taken a picture of their whiskers? Do your whiskers ever hijack your selfies?

We hope everybuddy is having a wonderful weekend! Happy Sunday!

Our Tip of the Day:
I've mentioned before the importance of cat whiskers. Keep in mind, though, that our pups also have whiskers. Although perhaps not as many as cats, and perhaps not used as heavily as those of cats, dog whiskers nonetheless serve the same sort of sensory purpose as those of kitties. Whiskers help both cats and dogs understand and navigate their surroundings. These whiskers are, understandably, very sensitive features, and for this reason try to always remember to be gentle with them and to not comb or in other ways bother the whiskers, as this can be uncomfortable for our furbabies. Never pull your furbabies' whiskers, and teach children to treat them with the same consideration. And, of course, never cut your cat or dog's whiskers. This is not only uncomfortable and painful for the furbaby, but also takes away some of their navigational abilities. Treat those wonderful whiskers well!

Now those are some mighty good whiskers. Nice and long and probably very useful. You all have a great day.

Great whisker selfies! And a great tip about whiskers. The last time I took Snowball to the groomers, they ended up cutting some of hers, I felt so bad. I will not bring her back to that groomer again. Have a great day!

Please forgive us for being absent so much lately. Now that the wedding is over, we hope to get back to normal. These are terrific Whisker selfies. We love Evan's curly ones. Thanks for being or friends and hopping. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

A finer set of whisker selfies I haven't seen! And great advice to anyone tempted to snip a bit here and there. Basically if it grows on me it's mine and I need it, well most things at least. purrs ERin

Fabulous whiskers on everyone! We find whiskers very interesting as we don't have any, yet we get along just fine without them, despite people claiming they are essential for cats.
