8. Epilepsy

CRAP !!
Approximately one-tenth of the 230-250 bones in a cat's skeleton are found
in the tail, with the exception of the anurous (tailless) Manx. These 23 or
so caudal vertebrae combined with tendons, ligaments and striated muscle,
give the cat excellent control over its tail for balance and communication.
Only the domestic cat holds its tail upright as it walks, while all wild
cats hold their tails either horizontally or tucked between their legs. No
cats have a clavicle, which is why they can fit into just about any space
that their head can.
