Check out the enormous whiskers on this rather cute kitty!

Believed to be the longest in the UK, they stretch a whopping 12 inches in length and unsurprisingly, the pretty puss is very aptly named Whiskers.

The two-year-old moggy is currently being cared for at Cat Protection's Glastonbury & Wells branch. She arrived at the charity along with her three kittens – Chloe, Daisy and Twinkle – as their owner could no longer care for them.

Two of her young have found new homes but this adorable kitty is still on the look out for a new owner.

Missi, a Mainecoon cat, currently holds the title for the longest whiskers in the world – the Finland based feline boasts a staggering 19cm long whiskers.

But this black and white cat looks set to claim the UK crown at the very least.
