Talking Tails: What tales does your cat have to tell?

Pay absolutely no heed to the dog lovers who claim cats aren’t expressive and are impossible to gauge. 

How a cat is feeling and what they’re thinking are all expressed through their ears, eyes, body posture and, above all else, their tail. 

Perfect-Pet Books looks at the unique ways in which cats communicate with the world around them and asks the question: “What tales does your cat have to tell?”

It takes time to learn cat tail language, just like any other foreign language. Taking the right steps to ensure a cat has the perfect kitty paradise before they are brought into the home will help build a healthy, long-lasting relationship. Perfect-Pets Books have a collection of essential guides with useful information to help cat owners give the best care possible to their beloved pet.

The collection of cat essential guides includes: 
✔️ Cat Care the Essential Guide
✔️ First Aid for Cats
✔️ How to Kill Your Cat (free eBook available to download): covers the top issues that can endanger a cat’s life from a diverse range of hazards.
✔️ Which Cat? An Essential Guide to Britain’s 20 Most Popular Breeds. 

Cats are an enigma that have captured the hearts of people for thousands of years. Their mysterious personalities and adorable looks have made them an incredibly popular pet. 

In the UK, supposedly a nation of dog lovers, more households 25% own cats than dogs. In the US, that figure is nearly half, at a staggering 47%. 

In Australia, a nation of animal lovers, cat ownership is at 27%. It is certainly clear, that Western society is definitely ‘cat crazy’ but there are still uncertainties about the way in which cats communicate with us.

Cat tail language can seem a little complicated, but thankfully animal behaviourists have done exhaustive research to help pet owners understand it. Carlo Siracusa of the University of Pennsylvania - School of Veterinary Medicine gives a few words of wisdom. He says: “You have to take the whole body into account when reading tail signals.”

“The napping cat with the tapping tail, for example, is “relaxed overall but paying attention to something happening around him, a sound or movement.” Siracusa adds: “If he really is sleeping a moving tail could mean he’s dreaming.”

The way cats use their tails is extremely expressive. A cat that’s about to pounce on a toy or is otherwise focused on something may slowly wave their tail, while a lashing or flicking tail signals that the cat is agitated. 

If a cat bonds with another cat, the two cats may intertwine their tails. A cat may also curve their tail around its owner if they feel the bond is close enough. On a calm cat a straight-up tail with a hooked tip is a friendly greeting, while an aggressive cat may just have its tail straight up. 

A fearful cat will have an arched back and its tail up and puffed, like the infamous black cat depiction used at Halloween.

Understanding cats becomes much easier once we learn how they communicate, and it’s well worth taking the time to do that. 

From identifying an illness sooner to picking up on their mood and identifying situations that cause them distress or pleasure, owners can care for their cats much more effectively when body language is understood. A feline companion is sharing so many emotions and messages with their owners all the time and picking up on these signals is vital to the longevity of happiness in the home.
