Hi ! Today I’d like to talk about my tail. Funny subject matter you say? Well, maybe, but I happen to like my tail a lot. Whenever I’m giving myself a good grooming I never miss making sure it’s all nice and neat too. I roll onto my side and hold my tail with my front paws and smooth it down and make sure it’s clean like the rest of me. Mom likes when I do that – she said none of her other cats ever held onto their tails like I do but then I’m the first kitty she’s ever had that has extra toes!!!! Makes holding stuff super easy.
Anyway, Mom says when I’m asleep – SOUND asleep – my tail will raise up in the air and sway slowly back and forth…..or up and down…..that’s because I’m dreaming that I’m an orchestra conductor. She also has told me that sometimes my tail will just slowly lift and stay there in the air for a few minutes then slowly go back down. I’m not sure what I’m dreaming when THAT happens but sometimes – honestly – I think my tail has a mind of its own!
One of the cats that lives in the house next door has a very short tail…..Mom says some kinds of cats have short tails or even no tails but I think something GOT hold of that cat because I remember it used to have a LONG tail! The people next door leave their cats outside almost all the time and I just bet that gray cat with the short tail had a bit of a disagreement with a fox. EEEK!
So what’s YOUR tail tale?
