The adorably strange obsession of a young teenager preserved in the pages of a scrapbook from the early 1940s recently discovered in the Collingwood Archive of the Cardiff University Special Collections.

To wit: the scrapbook of Janet Gnosspelius (1926-2010), containing every whisker shed by her cats between 1940 and 1942, complete with the time and location of discovery.

Janet would go on to create other cat-related chronicles later in life, as you’d expect.

    Cat-a-logue!, I almost missed that! This Janet is the sort of person we need watching the euros and cents in the NCH project, or in the HSE making sure there are enough beds in the annual flu rush, or in the Dail counting TD’s attendance and voting. Kudos Janet.
