I just googled “menopause whis” and didn’t have to type in the rest: up came Menopause whiskers on chin, for which there are over 22,000 search results. So it’s not just me then…..
A few alterations to the family bathroom have meant the addition of a fancy magnifying shaving mirror. On testing it out (it swivels and expands out into the room) I noticed I have slowly been turning into a hillbilly – grey hair abounds, and (as the youth of today might say), WTF!!! a very black thick hair, at least an inch long, on my chin. I suppose I should be grateful it was just the one.
A friend of mine of a similar age recently reported she found an eyebrow hair which had grown overnight in the middle of her forehead. Another couple of friends (a bit younger, but there is seemingly no escape) regularly groom each other, checking for stray nose and chin hairs. This seems like an increasingly good plan. Please send your CV.
The menopause is truly the gift that keeps on giving. I must say, hormones are vastly over-rated.
On a more jolly note our kittens have arrived at Bee HQ. We are all in love!

One thought on “Whiskers: mine and the cats’”
At 55 and ageing swiftly – maybe it’s time I buy a mirror. A timely warning for which I am grateful. I am sure cats don’t suffer from this problem!
