Tocktober and tails


I have always wanted to celebrate Tocktober, but The Crew has never made it easy for me.  They will stick their tocks in my face, but if I want to try to get a picture of it they get all suspicious and wonder what on earth I am up to.  But this year I had extra motivation..

Seriously mom.. QUIT IT!!

But see.. I had to.. There was a challenge laid down by Waffles and picked up by Rene to see who has the length of the tail of the internet kitties..  Well I was mighty curious.  I know who I think has the longest tail, but I don't think I can prove it since he doesn't live with me any more..

Pumpkin's could wrap his tail around his body
 and cover all of his front toes with it
But sadly I don't think bringing a ringer into this counts..

So with out further ado:


  • Fleurp 10 inches of tail, 2 inches of additional fur for a total of 12 inches - those long haired kitties make it interesting don't they?
  • Kit, same as Fleurp
  • Twee - 11 inches
  • Jack 11 inches plus an additional half inch of fur
  • Eli 12 inches
  • Skippy 12.5 inches
  • Muffin 12.5 inches of tail with an additional 2.5 inches of fur for a total of 15 inches (although I have no idea if this counts as a tie, since Waffles is a short haired kitty - I'm guessing not) 
DH said Muffin should win for WIDEST tail. I didn't think that was very kind of him ;)

  1. My human needs to get out the ruler and start measuring! Although I am not so sure about the tock shots here.

  3. Maybe the annual measuring of the tails will become part of tocktober! Pumpkin certainly did have a long tail. Maybe it's an orange cat thing?

  7. Widest tail, LOL! Impressive tail lengths. I never thought to consider extra fur length, though we don't have any poofy tails here.

  16. You got some exceptional tock shots. Mom was going to measure our tails and still plans to do so, but she hasn't gotten to it yet! She is such a procrastinator. Pumpkin's tail looks way longer than 15 inches. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
