No surprise there, particularly about the fearful part considering she
has to live with you...

When a cat is fearful, the whiskers are pulled back.

When a cat wants more sensory input about the environment, the whiskers
are forward.

This isn't rocket science and I am very surprised, well not really, that
after years of being owned by a cat you don't already know this.
