Twizzle, our cat, loves nothing more than getting most-lovely attention at the dinner table. His tail is a problem though. As he visits the lap of each diner, it thrashes around leaving hairs in a Zorro-like gash in the butter.

I propose a remote control unit that overrides pussy-control of the tail (yes; he agreed to the surgery; I have his pawprint). Press "Red" to render it floppy. No danger of dander now...

Of course, after five minutes, there will be a timeout in case drunken diners forget to re-enable the tail.

       I'm thinking it's not just the tail that sheds.

       It's a case of prioritization. The tail's the worst. The coat is priority two.   

       And anyway, imagine if we rendered the whole cat limp at the press of a button. It would fall down on the floor and I would get beaten up.

       Nah, you'd be fine - just press your *other* red button to make their arms go floppy.

       Ditto borg bait

       Is not a simpler solution to just coat the offending tail with silicone sealant? Maintains flexibility whilst preventing shedding.
