Pookie the cat has a tail that is hanging down

Species: cat | Category: other | Submitted: 19 August 2007 12:33AM | viewed 50179 times
Q Alice asks:

Pookie is not raising his tail as he normally would. He is 13 years old. He's pretty spunky most of the time. I just never have seen his tail down before. I am concerned that it might be broken or one of my other cat's might have injured him. Help!

Q Our vet says: It does sound as if it needs attention. Often the tail hanging limp and not moving is a sign that it is broken, but there are other possible reasons (for example, an abscess or other type of lesion causing pain when the tail is raised) - so you should take him along to your local vet to find out what is wrong.
