Dear Friends,

As I am sure you are familiar, we feisty felines have a tell-tale sign that can end an argument in a second…or at least warn our adversary that a storm is brewing! It’s called, conveniently, the TAIL.

With that furry little bit of heaven starts twitching, time to close up shop. Sometimes the impetus may be as arbitrary as a light touch or not light enough noise…and sometimes it’s because your toddler nephew is using our fluffy appendages as a chew toy. There really isn’t any rhyme or reason…but respect the tail. Every single time.

I heard a story once about a young guy who thought this habit was “funny”…so he would agitate his Siamese until it did something rash. Folks…that is what I would like to call entrapment. Cats can be framed, too!

Word to the wise…do not participate in this nonsense. Your corneas will appreciate the care and concern.

Hasta la vista,
Maximus
