The tail of your cat can indicate what is going on in her mind. Spend a few minutes to observe your cat’s behavior, then you can have a good command of the meanings.
If your cat holds her tail high in the air when she moves about her territory, she’s telling you about her confidence and satisfaction. A straight tail indicates her happiness and willingness to be friendly to others including both her owners and the fellow cats.
Some may like to take a break from daily business to play with their cat, but they find a curve in the tail of their cat. The curve tail often indicates a delightful mood and a cat’s willing to make fun with you.
Watch out the low position of the tail, which may indicate cat’s aggression and her serious bad mood. But things are different in certain breeds, such as Persians, tend to carry their tails low for some other reasons.
A tail curved beneath the body usually indicates the cat’s fear of submissions. Maybe something has made your cat feel nervous.
A tail looking like a pipe cleaner signals a severely irritated and frightened cat, which is trying to look bigger to avoid danger.
A tail that slaps back and forth fast demonstrates the cats’ fear and aggression. Be careful to stay away when you see such a signal.
A tail swaying slowly from side to side usually indicates that your cat is focusing on an object. You might see this tail position when your cat is looking at a toy or a kibble of cat food.
A tail wrapped around another cat is just like humans putting arm around another person. They just want to show their friendship to fellow friends.
