Stumpy's crazy whisker - still there

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I can't believe this whisker is still growing... it's now twice as long as her other whiskers!



It's a bit hard to see, but it actually goes past the edge of the left side of the photo

WOW that's amazing - I've never seen one so long! I hope it keeps growing!

How odd! She sure is a pretty girl, long whisker or not!

Wow, that's interesting ! I also like how half of it is pigmented but it's so long that the pigmented part is as long as an entire normal whisker.

Maybe she's trying to make up for her lack of tail?

Aww Bless her and that crazy whisker

WOW! I was just wondering about her last week and if her crazy wisker was still there. I'd be looking at Guines records.

Yeah does she still have it? I think she's preparing to get extremely fat.

Oh that's hysterical! I missed this thread when you first posted it - but I have to ask now too! Does she still have the crazy whisker?

Yep it's still there!!!!! That reminds me - I should go measure it again

Edit: She wasn't too keen on letting me measure it - she kept trying to sniff my hand and lick my finger... I think it's about 5 inches though

Ha, it's the whisker that kept on growing--against all odds. That's ok, Stumpy; it just gives you more style.

That's just too funny and too precious.

Maybe you can get Stumpy's whisker into the Guinness Book of Records.

... to do that Stumpy would have to keep going on strong- the current record is at 19 cm (7.5 inches), set by Missi, a Maine Coon living with Kaija Kyllonen in Finland (2005).

Not sure what you've been feeding- but keep up the good work.

That is very impressive! Coolest whisker ever.

Roxy's (Maine Coon) longest whiskers are about 5" long...

Ducky is not a maine coon but his are at least that long, too.

I have some sad news - her whisker fell out

I've searched the house on my hands and knees around all her favourite spots but haven't found it yet

I'll keep looking though

Stumpy is only a little thing though! She only weighs around 7lbs

Aw, I was looking forward to watching it grow bigger than her body. I hope you find it.
post #23 of 27
Aww... I'm a little surprised it lasted as long as it did. I hope you can find it.

That should have read 8lbs, not 7lbs.

I just weighed her and she now weighs 8lb 12oz! It must be her winter coat...

Did you find the whisker yet? I'm so sorry that it fell out.

Nope it's gone. I need to vacuum tonight, so it's probably gone forever! Maybe it will grow back long again?
post #27 of 27
Maybe? Obviously the follicle is game for great lengths!

Now I'm wondering how long Disa's whiskers are...
