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.

Kenggy sure is very patient. What a great cat. It is so great to see cats get along so well especially if they have some little stuff wrong with them. That is wonderful that Kenggy gets along so well without paws.
Have a great day.

What a warm and lovely post. It speaks volumes of just how wonderful cats are and the lessons that we humans could learn from them.

It shows me that we could learn a lot from the tolerance of cats...

This is just so sweet. I love the pictures. Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK obviously loves Kenggy's tail and Kenggy really does look tolerant. What great kitties!

If only we humans were more like our pets/animals...

Interesting post.

Ginger said...

Mine all get along, too. They have their moments, but if they wanted to really hurt each other,, they could.
