    interesting!

    Second row and third column. Is that what Sam is telling me when he does that? I thought he was a unsuccessful sprayer since othin ever emerged?

    Sure this is not a humorous interpretation?

    Tinky does the "I'm crazy about you" to me every time she comes in the room, and especially when she visits me in the bathroom. She always comes up to me and sticks her rear end towards me. I am so glad that means she is crazy about me because I just am totally in love with her!

    My foster female Marney shakes her tail at me and meows, then flops over to get a belly scritch!

    I see lots of "Let's be friends" which at my house also means "I'm glad you are here -- please feed me!" I will have to watch for "I'm crazy about you"

    Thank you, Carole for this!

    I have also seen a cominbation of the scared/made graphics together. Back when Casey was still with me she went to the vet for an overnight procedure. Of course when she came back she did not smell the same and the cats did not recognize her. Tink's tail poofed out about 5 times it's regular size along with the hair in the middle of her back. It was actually kind of funny. Would love to get a pic of that some time.

    Myrtle's tail is always in the "Let's be friends" or "I love you" position.

    I'm glad to know that Fister loves me. His tail is mostly in the positions 2, 4 and 5.

    No i am pretty sure it is not mean't to be funny, it is genuine, comes from a cat site, but i cannot be 100 per cent sure, but i sure can relate to all of those tail expressions, Lexie's tail quivers when i pat her, like she is spraying, but i knew she wasn't,but often wondered why she does that, she is the only cat that does, now i know, we live and learn, nice to know a few more things about our kitties.
    When Nikki hears another cat outside, she runs upstairs, hoping to get out, NOT HAPPENING, and her tail can get bushy, but is in the downward pose, i have seen it straight up, when approaching another kitty on our property, so i would say these are genuine.

    I found it very interesting and had to share.
    Have fun at the Rainbow Bridge,Zara,Rusty, Juliette ,Romeo,sweet Tessa,wee stray and Harvey you all will never be forgotten.

    Hi, Freckles! You are beautiful! I'm happy to see you too

    Hate to say it but I know the "I'm getting upset" tail... usually when she is fed up with me giving her too many hugs and snuggles! "Enough, human!"

    Very interesting! I think they're pretty accurate. My Mr. Luke does "I'm Happy to see you" and "I'm getting Upset" . He probably does the others also but mainly those two I mentioned. Thanks.

    Oh I definitely get a row #1 column #3 from one of my son's cats all the time. Sometimes I think she doesn't even like herself!
