A Tale of Two Tails: Toby 1Fang & Leia, Princess of All She Surveys
Those tails are tempting, aren't they?
Oh, what nice tail you have...
My human would do that - but she'd let you know she was going to do it so you wouldn't be startled. And she'd grasp it more than tug it. She's weird anyhow.
My mum would be the same as Sparkle's human. She would say, "What's this thing hanging down?" then grab hold of it and probably kiss it. Yuk! That's as bad as being bothered by the flashy box.
Our mom would have played with that tail without a doubt, but she wouldn't have pulled on it. Kitties can be sensitive about that. Our Angel Leia would have considered it a scratching offensive.
That's offense, not offensive - no tuna treats for the typist today!
Maybe she could gently kiss it. Not that we're offering your mom suggestions or anything. The mere thought of anyone kissing our tails gives us the heebie-jeebies! Purrs...
We sure are glad your mom didn't give in to temptation! :)
