Having spent the day looking at a frozen picture on PuddingCam, I wondered what I would be faced with on my return home. What I found was Cagney doing an impression of a lovebird – he has lost his second tail!
This evening he has been extra dominant & I suspect it is because he is trying to make up for his lack of tail. I have named this Short Tail Syndrome (STS). When not feeding Atilla, he has wanted to eat whatever anyone else is eating & wanted to sit wherever anyone else is sitting. “Anyone else” was mostly Bezukhov.
I guess the only cure for STS is to wait for the tail to grow back. It may take up to 6 weeks for Cagney’s tail to grow back. Will we have to put up with his brazen behaviour for that long?!
