All cats, domestic and wild, have sets of whiskers that protrude from the left and right side of the face; right behind the nose. These whiskers serve numerous functions but an important one is to help maintain balance. Cats love to walk on tops of doors and other trapeze type actions. They consider this fun. If the whiskers are cut, the animal will have balance problems which can get it into trouble. So do not cut your cat's whiskers. If you did, they will grow back!
