According to Wiktionary vẹt can also mean ‘kite’ (as in the toy, not the bird). That sounds confusing...

con is used for living beings. cái used for inanimate or long straight objects. e.g. pen, scissiors, fan, tree (long straight object), spoon, knife etc..

Knife might be a bad example here since it is con dao. I can not explain why though. :D
