Unhappy Cat's whiskers are falling out

I have an 8 year old male tabby cat. In the last year his whiskers have been falling out. Why?

Cat whiskers do fall out from tome to time as a function of normal whisker/hair growth.

As long as the ones that fall out are being replaced by new ones, AND they are all not all falling out at once,

then this all seems normal.

Thank you very much for your response. My daughter was very concerned as well as myself.
