We all know that cats use their whiskers not only to balance, but to also navigate their way through tight spaces. But there's so much more to what these twitchy little cat adornments can do. In fact, they have little muscles that control them at the base which can point them forward to detect their prey! BBC Earth took a look at how cats use their whiskers in slow motion, and the results were purrfect! Watch and see for yourself.
