Weird Wednesday

I know we've talked before about Jimmy's unusual tail, how is curls and twists and he likes to wear it in a bun sometimes...it is more like a primate tail than a cat's tail.

Well, I present you with some further photographic evidence...


Here are Ben and Jimmy sitting on the back perch catching some good window wiffies...note Ben on the left and his normal tail position wrapped around his body.


Now look at Jimmy with his crazy prehensile lemur tail curled around the perch holding on!


Here is the super extreme close up...look away kitties if it's too much for you.  Are there any others out there with tail issues???

Jimmy, you have a wacky tail!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We think that Jimmy has a stupendous tail - we wish our tails did clever tricks too.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

Wow, we think Jimmy's tail is awesome too! Ours don't do anything that cool!

Katie Isabella said...

My tail just stays up like a flag with a curl on the end. Yours is amazing!

Marg said...

Jimmy, what do you do with your tail when you stand up?? You must think of your tail as an extra leg or appendage. Pretty interesting. Hope you have a great day.

Meg & Quill said...

We had a friend who had one like that and they called it the Popeil Clip-On Tail.

The Island Cats said...

No, we all have boring tails...though Zoey's sometimes is crazypants...won't stop moving!

Cara n Crew said...

hee hee! hmmm...our main tail issue is the Restless Tail Syndrome :D you know though, all of us except Minnie carry our tails straight up when we walk and our mom calls us kitty lemurs! :D

Madi and Mom said...

OMCs we never really noticed this before but what a cute trait....Jimmy! It does look like a lemur. I don't do anything too spectacular with my tail but Mom absolutely loves that every morning when I first see her my tail is flying high in a ? mark, which of course is a feline greeting but Mom says mine is special. MOL
Hugs Madi your BFFF

Maggie @ Shelter Cats said...

That is a very useful tail trick!
Jimmy is talented.

CCL Wendy said...

Very cool! I think this is actually a PAWSitive thing because Jimmy's tail must be very strong. He must have good butt muscles -- LOL!

Yes, my Domino has tail issues, but they are quite different. She has a spastic tail that jerks around on her uncontrollably at times -- it's usually worse in the winter. It happened because her first human used to pull her tail until it snapped -- he thought that was funny.

Jenny | Floppycats said...

Love it - how he hugs the window perch!

Rene said...

I like it! Our Sadie seems to sit on her tail regularly and not care.

Alex aus dem Gwundergarten said...

Smile, I haven't seen such a cat's tail :o). Noah's tail works like the one from Ben.
He told me to say "Hi" to all your lovely cat boys... he really would love to play with them.
Have a good time!

Cory said...

Wow, I think all of our tails are quite ordinary compared to that! Our tails range from floofy to sleek...but they are not talented.

meowmeowmans said...

Jimmy, we think your prehensile tail is VERY COOL! Sammy's bends all sorts of odd ways, and is wide, too (sort of like an otter's tail). :)

CCL Wendy said...

To answer your question, Dylan is lovesick for his girlfuriend Halle (of Jacqueline's House of Cats).

Angie said...

That is an amazing tail ...our Smudge has a strange one ...it naturally wants to lie upwards... along his back rather than down .... over his hind quarters.We think it was put on wrongly lol.

Brian said...

That is some impressive tail fur sure Jimmy!

ABBY said...

Jimmy
YOU have a marvelous tail!!!

The Purr Diaries said...

Our tail issues are longness and floofiness!!! Although I don't know if you can call that an issue ;o)

Happy 4th of July!!! xo

Cheri said...

That is one cool tail! Some of us are like meerkats - our tails sty up in the air with a curl on the end no matter what we are doing!

Kwee Cats and Life said...

Hi! Thank you for visiting us It sure is good to see you again, too! Yes, several of the Kwee Cats use their tail to hang on, also to whap with and push things around.
