How kittens learn


Kitten chases tail. So far, so good.

Kitten catches tail. So far, so good.

Kitten holds captured tail in mouth. So far, so good.


Kitten attempts to carry tail away, in mouth, to convenient corner for torment and execution. Kitten reaps harvest of confusion and indignity.


And yes, the title would be more appropriate if this weren't the second time she'd done it.

Your cats do provide endless entertainment, don't they?

I think my favourite was still the cat's mother when Kat got her so dizzy chasing that shoelace that she fell over after a brief moment of confusion.

Perhpas rather than learning not to do it your kitten is learning how to carry her tail. This would take some time but should eventually mean she has no need for a catch and release programme to ensure warm hunting in winter months. O lucky lucky you.

My cat has never learnt how to carry his tail, alas. http://susan.sean.geek.nz/2006/04/moabs-catch-and-release-programme.html

Hi, Lea! Errr, Ivan.

This is Sarah Kahn, from the old rec.games.frp.advocacy newsgroup. I've just joined an on-line freeform RP with the temporary working title of "Minions," and so, quite naturally, I found myself thinking of you. I'm glad to see you're doing well. And the revelation of pseudonym? Totally cracked my shit up. Well played!

Nothin' much to see here, really. Just wanted to say 'hi.'
