I just accidentally pulled out, while playing, my cat's whisker entirely, follicle and all. I feel terribly as I know she is a kitten and whiskers are rooted deep in a place rich in nerves. I'm wondering if the whisker will grow back and if it will cause a lot of pain as it does regrow.

If you're concerned about the pain aspect, approach your vet, as I'm sure they would be able to tell you how to treat it. –  jonsca Dec 2 '12 at 2:52
