Tag Archives: whiskers

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.
