“Brush,” not “bush”

We often speak of a cat or dog as having a “bushy” tail, but among cat fanciers, it is proper to speak of the “brush” of a tail, as in “The Turkish Angora’s tail has a full brush.” Obviously every type of brush has its admirers, from the extremely full brush of Persians and Maine Coons to the practically brushless Siamese. Fans of longhaired cats cite the long, thick fur on the tails as one of the most appealing features.
