Well here is the rest of the story
Every Wednesday my Dad and his train buddies meet over at
Mr. Jerry's house to 'run trains'. Mr. Jerry had a huge basement full of a gorgeous 0 scale model railroad fashioned after the Tehachapi Loop in California. It is a work in progress most times when the guyz gather it is a fun run. Every so often they actually work on scenery, update things and most importantly keep it in tip top shape. Mr. Jerry is a retired electrical engineer so he does a lot of complicated switch stuff. He is also an avid CB radio operator and he drives a black Suburban. He wanted to put a model of his car in the scenery; however, he could not decide what to use for his CB antenna. My dad said how about a cat whisker?!? Dad said Madi is always dropping a whisker here and there. Mr. Jerry said yes indeed that would work.
After a tough negotiation, Dad and I came to an agreement worth one of my whiskers.
A lifetime of tummy rubs, food, shelter and unconditional L O V E.

Whisker of Madi was featured in the January 19, 2015 issue (page 70-77) of Great Model Railroads in an article all about this fantastic Tehachapi Loop Model in O scale
