Pernicious Tail

14 May

I was going to post pictures of the kittens fighting over strands of grass, which were pretty exciting, but Pernicious started demonstrating his method of chasing his tail so here’s a video.

They get neutered tomorrow, so they’ll probably not be nearly so happy.

news: Berkeley Humane says the face crud the kittens have is ringworm, so they’re not getting surgery today, not coming back here, and I probably won’t have kittens for 6 months or more.

    Kittens (and puppies) chasing their own tails always amazes me. I don’t remember any kittens chasing each others’ tails. And they must know it’s their own, if nothing else because they can feel when they catch it. Surely another kitten’s tail would be more fun, just from the unpredictability, yet they prefer their own. It seems so very strange. It must be some stage of growing up, since adults don’t do it nearly as much.

      They have chased and chomped each others’ tails, and feet, and other body parts. Pernicious just has a very odd way of curtailing his tail motion so he can catch it. Sometimes other litters have found being in a bowl or trashcan makes tailcatching easier.
