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 Very Happy (I miss having her...) Everything else about her is like most tabby cats, but her whiskers are about 6 inches long Very Happy

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. Confused

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.
