Tale of a Tail

On a par with cardboard boxes and paper bags when it comes to entertainment value, cats would surely list tails–their own or someone else’s. Even a dog’s tail will do.

This harks back to prehistoric times when cats used to hunt their tails as prey.

    The cat on the chair, just before the 4 minute mark, was amazing. That could be a stage show, of its own accord. 🙂

    I’ve seen cats attack their tails with ferocity that surprised me. Were their tails guilty of evil intent? I doubt I’ll ever know, but if you were to account the amount of entertainment one gets for a few cents worth of cat food every day, it would be impossible to argue that cats were anything less that the best entertainment for the buck, possible.
