Shes the weirdest cat u ever want to meet, even the vet said she has neurological/psychological disorder, my boyfriend said autism, the vet said yea i would guess that also lool. She also has a mood disorder where if u make a loud pitch noise or ring the door bell, or if the dogs get too riled up she attacks the dogs, people, the other cat its crazy, if u yell in the house she gets real upset and attacks the animals then goes after the person who is yelling. Anyways we measured her whiskers awhile ago, and just a few minutes ago my mother points out on how her whiskers are abnormally too long, so i measured them again with the help of my mother, and their 5inches long lol, is that even normal for a cat? lol She also has 3inche hairs coming out of her paws, and a tail as long as her body lool. Soo is any of this normal?

My old kitty has REALLY long whiskers, and they're so beautiful :D (I miss having her...) Everything else about her is like most tabby cats, but her whiskers are about 6 inches long :D

Probably some sort of mutation. Shellie's whiskers aren't very long at all.

I had an enormous gold and white longhair cat with whiskers that were that long, he was magnificent! He had a great big plume of a tail.

the whiskas are supposed to be on a cat for them to judge when a whole is too small,so it looks this kitty got the luxury edition whiskas.
boy cats especially for some reason,have massive whiskas,GFBs are huge.


and Biscuit sounds a lot like own kitty when it comes to the autism like stuff and sensory stuff,have always thought when they make it an official kitty label [which they probably will do as they did with OCD and depression] that Biscuit will get diagnosed.


the way she goes after others and attacks them might be what the kitty behavioral experts call 'misplaced aggression'.

I don't think I've ever seen a cat with abnormally long whiskers, but it would be better than being too short. I've heard that a cat without whiskers would walk into things but I doubt that. They have eyes you know. :?

Think your kitty is a cross breed maybe...

Ya cat whiskers can vary depending on the breed, cats with long whiskers are cuter

No, I don't know what he was. He was given to a neighbor of mine as a kitten and when she could no longer keep him I inherited him. I doubt he was a Ragdoll because they just aren't very common and tend to be very expensive, not the kind of cat you give away or let run loose. Just a big old lovable longhaired cat. He died of Feline AIDS.
