What It Really Means When Cats Wag Their Tails

What It Really Means When Cats Wag Their Tails

Most pet owners think of dogs when they think of wagging tails, but did you know that cats also use their tails to communicate how they are feeling? Your veterinarian can explain some of the subtle messages your cat is conveying with his or her tail. This video will also help clear things up.

When your cat’s tail is relaxed, so is your cat. A gentle wag usually means your cat is interested in something, such as a toy, the food you’re opening, or some movement in the room. Be wary when your cat’s tail is swishing back and forth quickly and forcefully. This movement means agitation and could indicate that something is upsetting your cat.
