A tale of, um, tails

A post by Waffles and his impressive 15"-long tail made me curious. How long were our cat's tails? I got out the tape measure to find out.

First, I give Glogirly kudos. None of the cats wanted anything to do with this. This is the only photo I could even get.

The results:
Tucker was 11.5"
Sadie was 10" (impressive since she is half the size and weight of Tucker)
Benny's length is not accurate. He got upset when I tried to measure it, so I had to estimate. It was approximately 11"

We want to start a trend! Measure your cat's tail and tell us what length it is. Is Waffles' tail the longest in the Cat Blogosphere?

Unrelated to the tail length: Connie at tails of the foster kittens posted some neat videos today. Check them out!

I think we should measure it as a percentage of each cat's overall length... because worked out that way, I am pretty sure I would win! At 12", my tail may not be as long as Waffles', but it is a larger percent of my overall length, I bet! I am a small cat.

Tiny's tail was a short 9" to match his small size. Maybe he has the shortest tail. :-)

Ooh, I'll have to try this!

Benny's still got it going on

This is Benny. I'm an old kitty and can't always jump up on high things anymore. My mom was very happy to see that I had gotten on ...
