Cats are very interesting creatures. Spokane cat owners have observed some fascinating behavior in cats, but don’t quite know why they behave that way.. They have commented on the language of their feline’s tail and wondered what their cat is trying to tell them.
One of the behavior patterns s of cats is a quivering tail. When a cat's tail is quivering, it can denote a mild annoyance. If the feline’s tail develops into an erect position and the entire length seems to be quaking with excitement, it means precisely that - excitement. You can be sure which emotion she/he is exhibiting based on the activity she/he is currently caught up in. If you are petting her/him and the tail starts to tremor, be aware she/he has had enough and this is the feline’s way of letting you know you need to cease touching his/her coat...
A feline swishes his/her tail is to get his sense of balance before leaping. The cat also does this to spellbind the prey she/he is surveying... Cats can't see prey if the prey becomes still so she/he moves his/her tail to initiate the slightest movement in the desired target, which then can be easily spotted.
When a cat slowly moves his/her tail from side to side this shows contentment. If he/she is sitting in silence with his/her tail softly wagging back and forth, the feline is concentrating attentively on something. Dynamic lashing back and forth is a definite sign of antagonism; pointing at infuriation and a true sign that the cat is very upset.
When the tail is tilted forward over the head, it show the cat is feeling like king/queen cat and in a happy-go-lucky mood. When the tail is waved quietly side to side like a fancy fan, the cat is at ease. Numerous quick flicks towards heaven are a friendly greeting to both humans and other cats.
Cats truly do communicate with their tail and it is up to us to observe and understand the tale they tell.
