cats, tail movement

Cats can communicate in a variety of different ways. For example, the sounds of meow and purr have different meanings and can communicate through body language as well. For example, the location of the ear is a good indicator to know how it feels. But one of the best ways to get insight into your cat is to look at its tail. it’s a bit more complicated. To understand the meaning of each tail movement of your cat and anticipate his reactions. but to make it easy for you this is What do the movements of the tails of cats indicate:

High tail: If your cat is walking with his tail high and straight, it is because he is rather happy or even confident. Often cats hold their tails in this position when they come to greet us when we return home and that indicates that your cat is happy at the moment to see you.

Shaking the tail: Unlike dogs, the shaking tail of a cat does not express that she is happy to see you but means that something or someone is bothering her. you should go away immediately and let it calm down.

Slow shaking: The tail moves slowly from side to side, often seen before the cat jumps, or when the cat is focused by looking at something specific as an insect or toy.

Low tail:  When a cat keeps his tail low on the ground, this means he is unsure of the situation or it is because he is afraid and he is about to escape at any moment.

 Puffy Tail: At this moment the cat feels scared and threatened, either being on the defensive or offensive. The more the tail is swollen down, the more aggressive, as the ears are back, with a hissing or purring sound. Usually, cats do it against another animal, it may be against another cat or dog. If the tail is swollen by your presence, it means that you have strained it. So get out of the place, and let her know you don’t pose a threat to her.

Tail wrapped around you or another animal: If your cat wraps its tail around you or another animal or cat, this is equivalent to putting his arm around a loved one, and refers to companionship or because he wants you to caress him.

Shaking tails when lying down: If your cat shakes his tail slightly when he is lying down, it is either because he wants you to stop petting him, or because he is sick or not feeling well.
