"Coupla' Kneazle whiskers oughta' get me a few Knuts, at least. Enough to buy me something from Honeydukes."
Unidentified Slytherin bully[src]

Kneazle whiskers were the whiskers belonging to the Kneazle, a magical beast related to a cat. It is unknown what they were used for by humans, but they could be sold for several Knuts on the market.[1] In some instances, they were used as wand cores by sentimental wizards who wished to honour their favourite Kneazles.[3]

History[]

In the 1890–1891 school year, a Slytherin student and his Ravenclaw friend attempted to steal one of Persephone's whiskers, but they were stopped by Poppy Sweeting and Bai Howin.[1]

In 1995, Crookshanks nearly singed her whiskers when Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, and Hermione Granger communicated with Sirius Black via the Floo Network in the Gryffindor common room.[4]
