Waffles Wednesday: Fifteen Inches

Um, hi everybuddy. Waffles here.

Did you hear about my fifteen inches??? Everybuddy's talking about it on Facebook. Glogirly says all the girlcats will be beating down my door. The Boss says I'm a freak of nature.

Why all the fuss? I've got an honest-to-goodness, genuine, 15 inch TAIL! Glogirly measured it and everything.

It's almost TWICE as long as the Boss' tail. And I'm pretty sure for every stripe I get extra cool points.



So we googled "significance of a cat's tail length" and look what came up first on the list! It's a Catster Article written by our friend JaneA from Paws and Effect!  She's really smart when it comes to cat stuff.

She wrote that the average tail length for a male cat is 11 inches and for a female it's 9.9 inches. So I'm WAY above average. Four whole inches above average. And like a million inches above the Boss. All this and I'm barely a year old.

Hey! I'm barely a year old? Does that mean I'm having a birthday soon???

  1. Of course, what if you are a tall cat? Does that mean you need a longer tail? You know to stay balanced and all?

  6. Rags' tail is 16" :-O but he is 3½ and also pretty tall.
    I was always told longer tails are a sign of greater intelligence and shorter tails are signs of greater compassion. Hmmm....

  7. Waffles, you are quite the over-achiever. We now all want our tails measured. And at one-year-old, we bet your tail will grow even longer Time to check out the Guinness Book of World Records and see if you can get listed. Best of Luck. We know Katie is jealous.

  8. Wow, Waffles, you are one large kitty! Although I just want to mention, I am a very SMALL kitty, and and girl, and I have a 12-inch tail! So when you look at it from a percentage perspective, I bet mine is longer than yours!

  16. With all that exta tail, maybe you could teach it to be prehensile or something, Waffles. Then you could tease Katie with it. You know, on second thought, maybe that's a bad idea.

  22. Glogirly, look what you started... My question is, where did you measure from? The tail is a little longer starting from the intrusive side. Mickey Mouser 11.5 (from the top).

  25. WOW! That's SOME tail you've got there. Wonder how long my tail is. Hmmm... I'll have to get the peep to check that out for me. Don't think it's fifteen inches, though. What's fifteen inches in metric? Any idea?

  28. Wow! You certainly are well endowed, Waffles. Don't let it go to your head, though. Those girls who only love your for your tail will miss out on your real genius... wait... never mind. Go with the tail thing. ;)

  30. we wonder what will happen if you keep growing? mom now wishes she had a tape measure handy the other day when Junior was knocked out - you orange boys could compare :)

  32. That's one whopper of a tail, Waffles! Maybe you have superhero powers in it!

  33. So I just had to check Alice's tail. She is just turning to six months old. Her tail "bloomed" so much it looks almost like a burden to haul around. It is 10 inches not counting the extra one inch of thick fur tapering off at the end of it. She went from a normal nice sized tail to a thick plume of a tail, seemingly over night. Between that and her feet, if she ever grown into it all she is going to be a very big girl!

  35. Lol @ Maggie "intrusive side"...! I thought about that when I went to measure (of course I did, had to!). I measured from the side as close as I could. Graham: One Full Foot, Spencer: Avg. Tail
