Toying Tails? The Long and Short of it!
It is good that One-Eyed (psst, please do not let him know that we call him that behind him) is so named Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK as he is handsome and has that air of sauveness just like that human in the movie.
EJ is glad he was not named after the notorious Captain Hook though his short tail is like a hook!
He has a fascination for tails and since his is short, he plays with his buddies' usually Kenggy's.
Luckily Kenggy has a long tail. With her two shortened front limbs and without paws, Kenggy uses her long tail as a stabilizing anchor to stand upright exactly like a kangaroo. And she could stand up like that for a considerable long time.
So here below, EJ managed to capture those precious playing moments of toying tails between Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK and Kenggy. The best part was Kenggy obliged and kept swishing her long tail for Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK to paw. And you can see that complete tolerance in Kenggy's eyes.
The long and short of it is the cats in EJ's home accept each other, share even their food bowls and live together in spite of their many differences.
