Great information, thanks.

Great article as I’ve come to expect from Hackaday. From experience I can tell you that heated Inserts work great.

Very good set of articles. I am trying hard to track down the vertebrae-type thing in the first image of the article. My cat doesn’t have a tail and I’ve thought about giving him a prosthetic one so he can climb trees and keep his balance.

How do naturally tail-less cats keep their balance?


#6

Not as well as a tailed cat that can cork-screw it’s tail mid-air…

I wasn’t especially pleased about the test methodology but this guy experimented to find out how cats land right side up in a fall.

My cat has half a tail having lost the remainder in some early life trauma before he decided to adopt us.
I never thought of a prosthetic!
That could be hilarious if he is willing to wear it…

willing to wear it
Knowing it was attached, I would expect every effort to remove it.
Ever put booties on a cat? One of the funniest things I ever witnessed.

I grew up with a bunch of Manx barn cats whose tails ranged in size from 2" stumps to not-even-a-nubbin. They were fantastic little hunters, but didn’t do a lot of tree climbing.
