Tuesday Tale about cat tails

My Tail 
from
I Could Pee on This by Francesco Marciuliano

If my tail is curved then I'm at ease
If it is tucked then do what you please

If it twitches then get out of my sight
(I'm watching a squirrel on my deck)
If it is to one side then I'm free for the night
(if you can wake me up)
If it is fluffed then I simply can't deal

If it swishes (and my fangs are showing) then it is about to get real
If it is erect then for you I give thanks

It there is no tail then I'm a Manx


BREAKING NEWS I
My vet told mom to check in with him yesterday to let him know how my my subqs and how my appetite was over the weekend.  She told him Miss Piggy I was eating like there was no tomorrow.  WooHoo for the next two weeks 
Pokemo(m)n only has to do Subqs every other day.  Needless to say
everyone is thrilled.  I go back to the vet in 2 weeks to have my blood stolen to check my kidney levels.  

BREAKING NEWS 2
Yesterday my good budz the Doodz left this comment
Madi, tell your mom that she is as tall as measuring from the tip to tip of her middle fingers when arms are outstretched.

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Dearest Doodz, mom ran lickety split out to get Stanley, the tape measure.  Dad measured Mom's outstretched arms from tip of middle finger to tip of middle finger. It is 5'1". 'Course Dad knew she had short arms 'cause she can't reach anything. Then Dad measured mom's height....lucky she has not shrunk she is still 5' 3 1/2"

Breaking New 3

Yesterday Bently and Pierre left this comment
Are most cat's legs and tails the same length? I know humans are built weird like that. Our foot is the same length as our elbow to wrist. MOL!

Dearest Bently and Pierre
We are not sure if most cat's legs and tails are the same length.  Summer said her tail was longer...
But good news moms feets are the same length, 9", as the distance between her elbow and wrist..WooHoo

  1. MOL, now you have my human pulling out the ruler and looking for a tape measure! Her arm from elbow to wrist is 10", longer than her foot by maybe half an inch or so. But she is also taller, about 5'6".

  8. Those tail positions are very important. Glad to get a review on them. And Madi, we are so glad that you are doing better. Keep up the good work. Have a wonderful day.

  9. YAY MADI! That's great news - you have been the purrrfect patient with the subqs and eating well. I hope your bloods show that when you visit Mr. Stabby again. As for tails, mine has a mind of its' own which is good because I have enough trouble controlling all my other parts so my tail can take care of itself!

    Love and Teddy Bear Hugs,
    Teddy

  10. I like the My Tail info Madi. Great news about the vet. I hope in 2 weeks when they steal your blood again, that it is not as bad as when the Vampire at my doctor's tries to steal mine. I have even told that person if she sticks me more than 3 or 4 times again, she would be sporting bruises.

    Have a wonderful day.

  12. That's good news about your subq treatments. Our mom uses her arms to measure things all the time. She is about 5'1" so her wing span is about 5'. It comes in handy if you don't have a measuring tape with you. BOL!

  20. Great tail signals--a bit like symaphore!

    Years ago, was shopping with a younger sister when she kept putting shoes on her arm, asked what she was doing and she said, 'seeing if the shoe will fit me.' Then explained that the foot is the size of the forearm. I tried it, and it worked.

    Good work about the eating...and only being tortured every other day now, Madi.

  21. Beautiful poem Madi! So your mom did not measure up, eh? OK, try this. Add your mom's year of birth to her age and the answer should be 2017.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
