Do you collect your cat's whiskers?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I came across this web site and wondered if anyone else collects their cat's whiskers. I have 53 whiskers in a little box and always think of them as little gifts left by my furrbabies.

I collect Sash's whiskers. I have them in my jewlery box, I haven't counted them in a while though. I was told once they bring good luck.

Would you believe I have never found one of Dori's whiskers If I found them I would save them though.

I've never found any either, but if I did I'd save them too.

same here - I have never found one either - I think I would more than likely keep them if I found them.

Now I am going to be searching the floor constantly!!

Uh, well, um...I find Ivo's whiskers somewhat regularly, but I don't save them. When I find them, I usually use them to tickle her nose, but after that they go in the trash. Maybe I should start saving them...

I've never found one. Frankly, I'd never even thought about a cat losing them. But with all the cat hair around here daily, no, I wouldn't bother to save them if I found any.

Nope don't save them, never have found any either. They probably get vacuumed up.

I've only ever found one, Trent's. I wanted to save it, but I didn't put it anyplace special and I'm sure it just got swept off the counter and now it's gone.

Hmmmm not aware if I have every found one of the boys whiskers anywhere. I know that if I did find one and save it Ken would call me more of a nut than he already does

I haven't found any ANgus Whiskers in years, but I do have a few of him from when he was a kitten and his baby teeth in a little treasure box. Haven't found any Ripper whiskers yet.

Cats loose their wiskers? I didn't even know this! Obviously I've never found any of my cats wiskers, but I too think I would keep them if I ever did.

The only one i kept was the first one Rosie lost, and thats taped to one of her kitten pics along with her first shedded claw i found.

Christy, I do the exact same thing with them. And Spike seems to love having his nose tickled by them, oddly enough.

Nope dont save them. Why? Is it like babies first tooth? Maybe save a baby one for sentimental reasons but definately not all of them

LOL I thought I was the only one! I have a bunch of whiskers from my boys. When I helped Shalimar over the bridge, I put her whiskers in with her ashes in a wooden box with her picture on top.

I save my kitties whiskers all the time. I have some taped to pics of them, and some on little note cards of which cat it was from and what day and year I found it so I can remember it! Strange I know, but I never found a claw, so I keep the whiskers. and BTW: they all like their noses tickled with them too!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I thought I was maybe a little nutty for saving them. I was surprised to find a few web sites about it though.

I didn't know cats lost their whiskers until Sam did, in fact I posted on here to find out if it was a normal occurance. It totally gave me the willies. Ive not found anymore since.
post #24 of 32
I've never found any to keep... there's enough cat fur around the place anyway and enough shredded claws round the scratching poles.
post #25 of 32
I didn't know they shed their whiskers, so if I have ever found any I have probably thought it was fur. I am going to look out for them now.

I found one of angel cats to day.
post #27 of 32
If I find one, I save it. I think that I only have 2 of them. I manged to find one of my Razpy's baby teeth and was quite excited about that.
My first ever!

I've never found one.

The first time I saw one of Kitty's "shed" (or whatever) whiskers, I had no idea what to make of it. I didn't know much about cats at the time :P

Now we see whiskers and claw bits, and sometimes we save them for a while, but they usually get lost lol.

I don't collect them but I do find Kuce's whisker's. I haven't found any of Sphinx's yet...
