NAME ORIGIN
    A whisker is a long, stiff, bristly hair that grows from the mouth of several animals, including cats. The word comes from the Middle English verb wisken meaning "to whisk". Besides the obvious connection of being a whisker from the face of a feline, there is also a tool used in radio and electronics called the cat's whisker that is a small, thin wire used to make contact with a semi-conductor. As for any type of folklore or mythology associated with an actual cat's whisker, please email the Webmaster with any information.
