Cat's tail has tale to tell


Watch the tail for your cat's mood swings. When your cat's tail is held right up, she's happy to see you and wants to be greeted. Cats raise their tails like flags when they feel confident and alert. As a cat's mood drops, so does the tail.

Consider your cat's tail as a barometer. When your cat explores, read a high tail as bravery and a low tail as uncertainty or fear. When your kitty arches her back with a skunklike tail, she is saying, "Please pet me, now. I'm in the mood for love." As her tail lowers with waving or twitching, back off. She's getting annoyed and is putting up the "no trespassing" sign. Leave her be!
