Is there any link between the cat-o’-nine tail, used for flogging, and the cattail plant found in wetlands? They both reference a cat’s tail. Except for the spike on top of the cattail, the plant doesn’t look like it could inflict much pain on a person’s back. But cats are soft and fluffy too, so who knows?
I’m guessing there is no connection, but haven’t had time to research it. What do you think?
