    Strange. Nobody knows what a comma splice is.

    A comma splice is when you have two complete sentences joined by a comma instead of separated by a period. In B you have:

    The kitten climbed the drapes.

    It couldn't figure out how to get down.

    Two complete sentences joined by a comma. That is a comma splice.
