Heide Perry has 522 cat whiskers in her collection.
I'm at five now but ripping them off the cats is really hard. Any suggestions how to be more efficient?
You have quite a collection >^.^
I'm at 397 whiskers as of today
How do you get these? Do you get them off of dead cats or are there live cats that like a good whisker tugging/cutting?
No, no, no, I find them . . . I would never hurt a cat
Where do you look for them? Does your cat lose its whiskers easily?
I have the hots for this stuff ... Like its kinda sexy how fuzzy they are
Does your significant other support this hobbie?
well, that's a nice cat name: Booger.
it is fairly frequent and if collected over a long enough period of time you can accumulate many without harming any cats
I have a collection of iver 650 whiskers
The cats were: Booger, Pusskin, Rang, Seti, Leo, and Sam. They most often lived in pairs as each got older (for companionship) over the last 30 years, and that is the time line for the collection, as well (30 years). They were, and are, all faithful companions and family.
Whiskers fall off occasionally (it's normal). How many cats provided whiskers for his collection? How long is the longest one? Shortest one? How long did he take to collect all of them? start/finish? Why collect whiskers? Baby kitty teeth are the hardest to collect as people rarely ever see those. I don't collect either.
creepy, but cool, at least it took the previous record holder 8 years to accumulate....., unique collectors lol
are cats being harmed!? how often do cat whiskers fall off?
I'm so glad to see this!! I have only a small collection of cat whiskers, 15 or so. But my family thinks its really weird.... I feel vindicated. Kudos to you both, Heide and Heather!!
This makes me queasy.
That's just creepy.
