Cattails 'bloom' in mid- to late summer. into a brown, velvety cigar shape, creating the "cattail" of the plant. These will go to seed in the fall, and as they do, will become white and fuzzy and eventually die until next season.
Kitty Speak - this is interesting. some people believe that because cats have different "tail" language than dogs this is the reason for their feuding. But when a dog is raised as a young pup with cats, he learns cat "tail language".
pussy willows ~ when I was in grade I had a light blue over sized sweatshirt with this design on it. I loved it and wore it a LOT. but I had to throw it out because my cat decided to birth her kittens in my sweater box.
