cajun, why would you want to ? i have never heard of cats needing their whiskers for balance. i have seen cats that have had their whiskers singed off in fires and have not seen them have any trouble walking right with out them. i am not sure what purposes cat whiskers serve. whats is wrong with louie with his whiskers ?
I was just talking to my dad about this last night. I didn't think you could because it has to do with their depth and how far they'll go into a closed space. He told me NOT to cut them because they'll start to run into things.
okay so then when they lose weight do their whiskers shrink back to normal size or stay long ? i may just experiment with this on my cats. fox is already too big. i'll measure his whiskers now and then put him on a diet. i will have 1 unhappy cat for awhile.
