Our cats, by tradition, have the nine round braided falls. They administer a sting, creating the sensation of being whipped. The more tightly the falls are braided, the more intense they can be. Braiding the falls is very hard on the crafter’s hands. Holding the braids tightly causes calluses and soreness of the skin. This is reflected in the price of cats and the length of time some of you patiently wait for us to complete your order. Do remember that the cat is not a heavy whip in terms of weight. It usually weighs a little more than half a pound. But oh, what power those devilish round braids can deliver. It is a perfect example of mechanical advantage. Even the most petite mistress can get the undivided attention of her slave with this whip.
