There were a couple of inches of fluffy tail, then several further inches which had obviously been completely baldified in whatever incident caused the loss and were covered in soft, short new fur. Weirdest thing I've ever seen on a feline, especially when I was administering strokage and the thin fuzzy stump was wiggling about.

Still a cute puddy tat, though.
