I saw a tv show about 20 years ago that featured a woman who saved her cat’s whiskers, and I thought “woah that’s odd!” However I started paying attention and keeping an eye out for my cat’s whiskers and I found myself doing the same thing. I’ve been on disability since I was 18 and being home all the time, I took notice of all the kittens and cats that were in need where I lived and began getting them spayed/neutered, chipped and vaccinated and taking in and treating ones that needed medical attention. The cats I have saved truly have saved me and I feel a connection to them through all their whiskers I’ve kept. You can imagine after 20 years how many I have! I keep them all in a keepsake box and they’re put in a special place with my kitties urns that are at rainbow bridge.
It seems you have no blog or email through which I can reply to you, so I hope you see this note ~ just a simple thank you for caring for and loving so many kitties over the years. Keep up the good work, applause ... appaws!
No whiskers here but mom does have furs that she's saved from Maggie, Mitch and me.
I have so many whiskers off of Precious it's not funny. And her with dark gray whiskers I don't know how I'm lucky enough to find them on the crazy Brown speckled carpet that we have. I always save them off of Seney and when I did a cross stitch of her from a photo I sewed the whiskers into the picture.
ooh we remember the car antenna at madi's home from a model car made with a whisker.....
No whiskers, but some furs.
Nope. We don't ever see them lying around. Most likely they are on the carpet or something.
I never saved any kitty whiskers back in the day. I did have an ample supply of cat hair all over the place though.Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
Yes, I do!Have a special ceramic box for them too.

That's a lot of whiskers you've lost, June. We hope they all grew back. None of our whiskers have been saved. They probably all ended up in the vacuum.
We save our kitty whiskers, too!
Our Mama still has kitty whiskers from her heart kitty, Angel Addie.
Yes I have whiskers, and fur and nail sheaths. I should have saved their baby teeth too as they kept falling out in and beside their toy box which they teethed on. I keep everything in a little wooden cat shaped box.
We've never saved whiskers, but have saved a little fur at times.
My goodness, that is quite the collection sweet June!
I sure do! Claws too :)
We have a few, but not that many.
The mom saves all of our whiskers when she finds them. She has a little container she keeps them in.
Are they good luck?

Nope. Mom does NOT save whiskers. She thought about it, bet she moved too much.

Yes, Claire does since she was a child ! She's got whiskers from every cat she ever had. Purrs
