Miss Newton Says No.

Monday morning and it’s time we check Miss Newton’s tail. She’s a late sleeper so we know exactly where she’s at: In the same place she is every morning, in the same spot in the Cat Den, laying in the same position, giving us the same look, day in and day out. We bet you thought she was all niceness, pink posies and glitter, huh? Well, she’s got spunk, that Miss Newton does.

“Good morning, Miss Newton. We know your tail is feeling better after Ruby bit it last week. We’d like to see it for ourselves.”


“Oh, c’mon.”



If you know it’s feeling better, leave it at that. You don’t need to see it.

“We just want to check it.”

Check it for what? It’s still there. It feels better. Do you have my missing fur?

“Uh, no. We’re sorry about that. If you recall, you didn’t seem to mind having it removed at the time.”

I recall nothing of the sort. Besides, you have that flashy box thing and I won’t have my naked tail splayed all over the Internets for all to see and mock.

*mumbling* “A little late for that…”

A little later: Miss Newton’s tail is healing just fine. She’s off her medication for the injury. Now comes the waiting part. If only we had a rapid fur growth potion!

  4. We hope your tail furs will grow back quickly – have you bitten the biter yet?

  5. Miss Newton….we think you look gorgeous! You now have a very distinctive, one-of-a-kind tail and you should be proud. You can be the new fashion MUST! Just stay away from fights so it keeps healing. We love you!

  6. I think that Miss Newton is a STUNNER. Her facial expression is priceless. Glad her tail is healing well!

  7. Poor Miss Newton…a nice big bow could camouflage the missing fur and eliminate some of the mocking as well as give you something to do. You can spend the day trying to remove it. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  8. Mommy calls that look the “Frying Pan Tail”. She is a rude, rude woman.

  9. Me is sure the hairs will be back before yous knows it! At least it went for a good cause.

  10. The indignities just never cease. Our sympathies Miss Newton.

  11. Miss Newton, you need to concoct some revenge on your human for showing you tail on the internet while it is missing fur!

  12. We are glad your tail is healing so nicely, Miss Newton. We have our paws crossed that your furs grow back FAST! 🙂

  13. Sorry Miss Newton but I’m laughing my fully furred tail off over that snapshot.

  14. Miss Newton
    we are glad your tail is healing so well, and we think you could be starting a trend there with a area shaved on the tail.

  15. Miss Newton would never make fun of your ass, do not worry.
    We are glad that you are recovering.

  16. Miss Newton… tail? What tail? We can’t stop looking deep into your beautiful eyes…. swoon (x3)

  17. Miss Newton, we know your fur will grow back soon. In the meantime, we agree, avoiding flashy boxes is a good policy, because that kind of photo will haunt you forever.

  18. Ouch! That tail needs checking, darling….

  22. Allie: Oh Miss Newton, do you think you might sue for libel? Or something? I mean, it’s scandalous that they’d show off your (naked) tail like that. Simply scandalous!!
