where the wiskers grow out of? The puffy things over it's mouth? My husband was describing a black and white cats markings to me the other day and we just got to talking about it. Is it the upper lip? Muzzle? Puffy part? Smile Does it even have a name? We don't know, help us out! Smile Thanx

well... I would say that it is called the upper lip... because the muzzle would be the whole mouth top and bottom. That is my guess Cool

Hi. The 'puffy area' where the whiskers are located on the upper lip is called the whisker pad(s). I think 'puffy area' is a way better name though. Mr. Green

wow! Hey, thanks, you learn something new every day.

I think this is a cute area, and if I give my cat rubbies on it she lifts the corner of her mouth on the area of the rubbies, and she looks kind of like Elvis.
Thank you, thank you very much. uh--huh--huh

Sad ...well...little maxie's puffy area hardly has any whiskers left...it seems either he plays really hard and breaks them off, or in the early days when he wasnt growing (when he had the giardia...they dont absorb nutrients because of the parasite) he didnt get enough nutrition, which caused them to break more easily. nevertheless....he only has one whisker on one side and a few on the other. all the other ones are little stumps of whiskers...like baby whiskers...just like him!
