A Cats Touch – Touchy-Feely

Cats rely on their whiskers and paws to scout out their surroundings. Cats don’t only have whiskers on there face, but happen to have them on the backs of their front legs.They use whiskers as an antennae, touching objects around them and determining if they can squeeze through tight openings. Sensory whiskers called “vibrissae” help cats to stalk prey in dim light and to navigate.

Blind kitties obviously use the sense of touch to get them around. This and their good memories after they have worked out their surroundings. Even if you happen to change the furniture around, you would notice that most blind kitties would not actually run into stuff but stop just shy of it.
