As I recall, whiskers serve to help an animal determine when the body behind it can fit through a space that stands before it. For cats anyway. I'd say this guy's whiskers are telling him he can eat a whole lot more cheese. Lucky fellow. So long as the cheese isn't connected to something wire and/or spring-loaded. In which case, his luck's run out.
Your feelings on rodents aside, you can't tell me this creature isn't cute. Can you??
sorry, can't remember where this came from. it was recent, which tells you something about my recent memory.
