    Leave me alone!!!! Update # 27

    New video and update post 27.


    I finally got this on video!!

    Caramella has been doing this for some time now... She acts suprised that her tail is there and flopping around and it annoys her terriably, so she attacks it. In this video you can hear her groweling at her tail and how she carries on.. I have had cats all my life and I have never seen a cat do this. It is like she is telling that tail "LEAVE ME ALONE!"...She is extreemly annoyed at that thing that keeps bothering her this day! Anyone ever see a cat do this?

    Oh, Laura - that reminded me - I never sent you the answers from the Ask a Vet show! Hang on, I'll email it to you in a minute!
    They did address this behavior!

    O how adorable! I especially love when the tail is draped down the hole in the perch and flicking away underneath!!!!

    I've seen this, in young ones, not much after age 5 or so. Hilarious, isn't it?!!! Like the tail has a life of its own.
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Oh my gosh! That's the first time I've seen something like that. That's too funny!
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    That is funny - but obviously not to Caramella. She doesn't seem to realize it's part of her. I've seen cats chase their tails, but never growl at them

    Beautiful cat! Tail biting and growling/aggression towards the tail could be due to impacted anal glands or fleas in tail area. I've read that it can sometimes be due to pain in the spine or pelvis. Or could be kitty version of OCD due to anxiety, stress or boredom. Our cat was doing this years ago and for her, it turned out to be impacted anal glands that the vet (and 2 techs!) emptied. She was not amused! Caramella could also just be having fun too and being silly but just wanted to throw those other ideas out there just in case.

    WOW!!! Caramela sure has grown! I've never seen anything like this, apparently she doesn't realize her tail goes along with the rest of her. Great video, I laughed several times while watching it. What a beautiful kitty girl!
