What’s In A Cat’s Whiskers?

Haven’t you wondered why the whiskers of cats is extremely sensitive? Each whisker contain an ultrasensitive receptor that can relay messages to the brain and nervous system. Even the slightest change in the flow of the breeze can easily be detected by these receptors. With the help of their whiskers, cats are able to respond to airborne vibrations or find their way through a dark, strange place. They can walk around obstacles such as furniture that are in their path with the aid of their whiskers. The presence of objects can lead to a change in the air current that can be detected by the ultra-sensitive receptors of the the cat’s whiskers. Cats are naturally far-sighted, and their whiskers can help them “see” anything in detail. Also, whiskers enable a cat to determine whether he can fit through a hole or space. 

Your pet will benefit from being brought to a vet clinic Lafayette, LA for regular health checks. For more details contact your village veterinary center.
