Whiskerless Wednesday

When Kip first came to us he had this one wacky white whisker.  The odd thing about this whisker other than being white...it was about three times longer than his black whiskers (which are tiny) and it stuck straight out!

weird whisker
Then the other day I noticed his white whisker was gone.  I asked him what happened to it, but he wasn't telling

I've got a secret

What a weird whisker! I bet Kip is glad it is gone. It was probably a little annoying, sticking out like that.

I've never seen a strange whisker like that. Are you glad to be rid of it?

That sure WAS a rogue whisker! Maybe Mom will find it lying around one day.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Hmm, a mystery!

Will it grow back the same way? How long does it take for whiskers to grow back anyway?

Our mom saves all the whiskers she finds..She found a plastic baggie on the weekend with quite a few and realized some of them would be Annie's. :-)

Oh noes...I think someone has been shaving w/o supervision!! I hope Kip didn't make Dad's razor dull!!

Kip, your secret is safe with us....

Now what did you do with that white whisker???

Random Felines said...

wow - a mystery...... You sure are a cutie Kip!!

There is black kitten at the shelter with 3 white whiskers that makes mom smile!!

Brian said...

That would have been a good unsolved mystery!!!

Marg said...

Maybe it was a baby whisker, kind of like baby teeth and he just lost it. That is too bad Kip, because it was a neat deal. Too bad it went away. Good to see you Kip. Take care.

Hi Kip...my brofur Sable, who is also a house panther, has been known to have a white whisker on occasion. It is quite odd, isn't it?

LP said...

Kip you are a kitten of great mystery! We have never seen a white whisker on a black cat-very cool! We bet you have a secret cache where you hide your most treasured treasures and the white whisker is hidden there.... :)

Just one! Wow! When Kozmo first came he had white eyebrow whiskers, but when they felled out they all grew back black.

That indeed is a mystery! Where did your wacky whisker go Kip? Tiri passes a hi to her Ginger Snap.

Kat and the Furrsonality gang said...

That is extremely intriguing! What a secret you are keeping, what a secret indeed. We have never heard or seen anything like that before ever

oliverandruby said...

Maybe someone started to pluck their grey hairs?

looloo said...

I think Kip gave it as a present to Casper, as white fits him better...

In fact, I don't know, I just know I am always afraid to cut a whisker when I am mincing meat for my beloved cats and they are eating out of the plate in which I am busy...

Eric and Flynn said...

That is an unusual whisker. We wonder where it went.

CCL Wendy said...

Cats whiskers fall out all the time and are replaced by new ones. This one may come back in black. It sure made an interesting contrast, though.
