Post 1569: Yet another cat tour, by popular demand!

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare to be amazed! Yes, it moves! I know most of you don’t believe the Dougy exhibit moves, but here is rare footage proving it so!

What? You think this is a spurious wagging tail, maybe off the Andy exhibit? I offer up definitive proof this is Dougy’s tail: The “exhibit” is stretched out on the ottoman that Dougy won’t let Andy or Doug (the human) approach! Of course that’s Dougy’s tail!

For guests at the exhibit, you are being unusually, um, obstreperous today. Is it a Dougy thing??

    • The kitty boys are going through a race against floofiness. Their groomer keeps scheduling them on dialysis days, which means I can”t take them in because health trumps cat hairdos. It looks like they will go at least six-seven months before they get their next haircut. I am not happy about that and may have to talk brusquely with their groomer to bring them back to reality. Or I may have to learn how to deal with unwanted floof! (Thanks for bringing us on to the blog list.)

    • And how! They pretty much rule one home at minimum, and some go out on missions to prosyletize non-cat people. The missionaries typically are dog-like tabby cats that win over those who think cats are fickle. You can’t win!!

His comment was so ignorant, however, I couldn’t let it go without “tossing pearls before swine” so to speak. We all have friends like that, and American politics these days have brought them out in the open where we can see them in their true light for the first time!

    • I wrote the first word that came to mind. I thought maybe I should come up with a more reader-friendly word, then I decided there is no shame in looking up a word if you don’t have it banging around in your vocabulary. Most people who write blogs are more glib, too, than the average bear, so can use new words, aren’t embarrassed if they don’t know a word.

      I have had so many comments about “obstreperous”, however, that I decided to up date the post by adding a link from the word to the definition of the word. You came here for light kitty humor, not an English vocabulary quiz after all!

    • Actually, I think you are correct about cats using their tails as sensory tentacles. When Dougy, for example, is facing away from me on his ottoman, his tail touches on one side of my leg, then the next. It makes little tapping motions up and down my leg before going to the other side. It’s like his tail is being used to tell Dougy how big the object behind him is and where it is. When Andy is above my head on the recliner back, his tail does a similar exploration of my head.

    • It’s uncanny. I suppose I noticed it because Dougy was upset with me for putting my feet on his ottoman. After he scratched it to let me know it was his. his, his, he sprawled, looking away from me, and his tail brushed back and forth and up and down on my legs. That’s probably the first time I thought of a tail as a part of their sensory equipment.
