Wis forWhiskers

Whiskers are hairs that grow around the nose and mouth of most animals. On people, whiskers are usually called a beard or moustache. Animals use their whiskers to tell when they are near something, as the whisker hairs hit things before the animal's face does. Cats have the most well-known whiskers. The cat in the picture is yawning, and you can clearly see its whiskers.
