Loss of whiskers on one side
(Putnam Ill USA)
My black cat lost all his WHITE whiskers on one side and now has only one white whisker left on the other side...the first side seems to have some shorter black whiskers but not a whole lot of them....why ???
There can be several reasons for a cat losing whiskers and most times its normal and not harmful. Like any hair, they fall out and regrow. For a short time its not an issue but as the time lengthens it could be a sign that there is a problem with the skin or the coat. Even fleas, allergies and skin mites can be culprits in causing this to occur.
I would suggest that you watch closely for the next week or so, and if they aren't growing back and/or continuing to disappear, then take your cat to a vet to be evaluated professionally.
