How Many Whiskers Do Cats Have?

Though it may be hard to tell with some cats, whiskers are very regularly spaced and grow in very specific locations. The most prominent whiskers, those on the upper lip, are in ordered rows of 4-5 with the shorter whiskers in front and longer whiskers in back.

Most cats have around 12 whiskers on each upper lip, 3 over each eye, and a few shorter ones on their chin. If you look carefully, you will notice that most cats also have a few whiskers on the back of their wrists!

It’s not just kittens that spend a lot of time sleeping, but senior cats snooze a lot too – usually up to 20 hours a day. This increased amount of sleep is because just like with humans, when cats get older, they tire more quickly. However, if this change has come on suddenly, it’s best to seek advice from your vet.
