Knot a Pom-Pom Tail

Tanya's tail is short and having semi-long fur, it looks  like a pom-pom.

Touching her tail, which Tanya hates, it feels like the tail is a hook almost like Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK. It was what EJ thought till Tanya's x-rays showed that it curls more to resemble a paper clip almost to a knot. (The x-ray was for her broken leg many, many years ago.)

Just by looking at her tail at times brings back memories that made EJ smile.

It happened when EJ was much younger and squatting at mom's house occupying the smallest room on the top most floor of a double-storey split-level. From the road, it looks like a normal double storey, once inside it is four-level with lots of stairs.

Mom was watching TV on a lower floor when suddenly from the corner of her eye, she saw something huge and white closely following a black furry ball whizzed past her. Realising that black furry ball was Tanya, she screamed for EJ who came running down the stairs.

Tanya's tail got hooked on to EJ's white duffel bag. It was a big ruckus and sight with EJ chasing the white duffel bag chasing black furry Tanya up and down the stairs both screaming on top of their lungs.

When EJ managed to corner Tanya, the nylon strings of the duffel bag simply could not come off her tail. 

With that, EJ decided to take a breather and then brought out the scissors before continuing the marathon chase up and down the stairs.

Mom was no help. With head thrown back, she just sat on her chair, body limped with laughter all the while.

And EJ had more than enough exercise for a week!

Oh noes. We bet that wasn't funny for Tanya...at all.
Ling tail is all knotted up too but she LOVES having it tugged at. Some time back, while playing with Da Bird, the string did get caught in her knotty tail and poor Ling tried to get it off by running but that only made it worst as the rod went along and scared her so much. Poor girl.

Poor Tanya. That had to have been scarry to her, especially if she doesn't like her tail being pulled.

Annie Bear said...

Awww...Tanya and her paperclip tail. What funny story although I'm sure not funny to Tanya at the time, poor girl. Tanya, I love your cute pom-pom tail. :)

Oh no, poor Tanya. Being chased by that big duffel bag must have been scary for her. Then having EJ join the chase....too funny.

You have a very special and unique tail Tanya, just be a bit careful what you hook with it.

Oh poor Tanya! We think you sacrificed your bag in good honour :-)

Sharon Wagner said...

Cats sure can get themselves into some hilarious situations. Oh my, with claws in the front and a hook in the back I can only imagine.

meowmeowmans said...

What a unique and beautiful tail Tanya has. How scary that must have been for Tanya, but the sight of it all must have been something to behold!

Gattina said...
