the tiger tail/fox tail combo is called a tail-y, and tail-y fetishists are called tailsies, not tail-ys

tailsies only talk about the idea of a tail-y as an artistic form, while tailsie-ists actually go to the length of making or buying a tail-y for home use

of course tailsie-ist tail-ies are made from stuffed animal tails, not real tails. even grafting two taxidermied animal tails together doesn’t approach the platonic ideal tail-y, which for some reason is alive, moves like a caterpillar and has extremely sexual thoughts at all times
