Depending upon your point of view, the Lord or evolution put those hairs there for a reason. I agree with those who say don't trim them.

I analyzed the situation thoroughly this evening and discovered that pretty much all her top "eyebrow" hairs have already been puled out by eye boogers but there were two left on one of her eyes that I trimmed.
Then, I realized that her lower ones weren't interfering with her eyes, or the flymask, so I left them. Yay for not needing to trim them all off after all!
