We just got our Black Cat, Salem, and were so excited until his whiskers fell out the very next day! I was able to reattach them, and I realized that the whiskers on all of the cats are not very securely attached, so cat owners, be careful! The whiskers are just four long strands of thick thread, tied in a knot in the middle. That knot is located under the cat's chin, on the outside of the plushie. If you have a cat, take a look under its chin. See the knotted thread? Don't pull on it, or your cat will lose its whiskers, too!
Here's how I reattached little Salem's whiskers:
1. Thread one individual whisker through a sewing needle. It should be a needle with a small eye, so the whisker fits tightly inside it.
2. Put the tip of the needle up through the center of the chin and up through the muzzle. Have the tip of the needle exit halfway between the cat's eye and nose, about where the whiskers were originally. I had to use a small pair of pliers to pull the needle and whisker back out through the side of the muzzle.
3. Repeat step 2 with each of the remaining whiskers, four for each side. Make sure you have each whisker come through the side of the muzzle in a slightly different spot, as they originally were.
4. Thread your needle with sewing thread in the same color as the whiskers. Make a couple of stitches under your cat's chin to secure the whisker knot to the chin itself. This will ensure that your cat won't lose it's whiskers again!
Boy, I sure wish you'd been around a few months ago when my raccoon's whiskers fell out. My daughter asked, "Mommy, is her face going bald?" Oh well, those whiskers went into the garbage, but we still love our little bald-faced raccoon anyway!
