When you call a dog, it comes running to with its wagging tail. When you call a cat, they just stare at you.
Today I'll go through a cat's body language and how a cat's tail can tell you a lot about your cat's mood.
So, don't worry!
You won't be caught off your guard when the cat attacks you next!
Let's talk about each of these, shall we?
Tail raised back at an angle: You'll probably see this when your kitty is unsure about something---be it a new baby, puppy, or another human! Don't worry! You cat is just unsure...
Tail raised up, swishing: This is a sign that your cat is seriously pissed with you and wants you to leave him alone!
Tail straight up, quivering: Well, this means that your cat is REALLY happy to see you and loves you!
Tail raised up, hooked at the tip: That looks like a question mark, right? That's because the kitty is confused about something!
Tail held horizontally behind the cat: This one can mean a few different things---your kitty may be confident, alert, amicable or relaxed
Hook in the base of tail: Run away from the cat because this one shows defensive aggression! You'll probably get clawed if you do something!
Thrashing tail: This could mean a few things, so this sign can be a little confusing. Let's take a look:
Bristled tail: This means that your kitty is aggressive and feels threatened by someone or something!
Tail held low and straight: Did you do something to piss your cat off? Because this means that the furry little this is pissed yet again...
Tail held between the legs: This shows that your cat is submissive and probably wants to be left alone
Twitching tail tip: This happens when the kitty is interested in something---be it a toy or a 'prey'
Tail-twine: This means that your cat is marking you as its own! Feel happy, human!
