Practical uses for a tail

If you've ever wondered why cats have tails, well, here's one reason. If you're trying to take a nap during the day, you can use your tail as a sort of sleep mask.

Or if someone with a camera catches you in an embarrassing moment, you can use your tail to disguise your identity, like they do in those old black-and-white photos where they put a black bar across people's eyes so you supposedly can't tell who they are.

These practical uses of the tail are demonstrated by Beaucat, our 14-year-old tomcat.
