With five of us kitties now residing in My Indoor Kingdom, you can imagine that the Guardians find quite a few shed whiskers lying about. They also find so much shed fur that they could build one new cat per week out of it, but that is another story. Anyway, yesterday one of the Guardians discovered a shed whisker that is one for the record books. Brother Oliver took a photo of it next to a pen for comparison.
When Brother Henry saw the whisker he said, “I’m the biggest cat in the house, so that must be one of mine, right? This plastic cone I’ve been wearing must have knocked it loose…” Brother Oliver and I looked at each other and then back at Brother Henry. Brother Oliver said, “You may be the biggest kitty, Brother H, but I’m quite sure this whisker came from someone else.” When Brother Henry started to protest, Brother Oliver showed him a photo. Brother Henry looked at it and said, “Oh…. right…”
Yep, our very own knight is the one who dropped that record breaking whisker. Hopefully Thomas knows that shedding and regrowing whiskers is normal. I didn’t know that until a couple years ago, so I kind of freaked out when the Guardians found one of My dropped whiskers. OK, so Brother Henry didn’t help matters any, but still maybe I should tell the kid it’s normal, just in case. Come to think of it, I should probably tell him sooner rather than later, Brother Henry had a mischievous look in his eye after he realized the whisker was from Thomas. I don’t know why, but he loves that FPFB joke!
