    Ok. I bought these spider-shaped cookies for my cat and since the first time I fed him with those his tail has been pointing skyward. I don't know what the fuck is going on.

    Even when he's asleep his tail is as stiff as a rod and it makes me and my child shit our pants. It never gives up. It stands there, pointing at the sky like silicon boobs.


    Any suggestion?

    Ó mar salgado, quanto do teu sal
    São lágrimas de Portugal!
    Por te cruzarmos, quantas mães choraram,
    Quantos filhos em vão rezaram!
    Quantas noivas ficaram por casar
    Para que fosses nosso, ó mar!

    :D

    Sounds like some bizarre kitty-viagra. Does it look like it's causing him pain? How long has it been like that?

    The cat doesn't seem to mind it at all. It lives it's regular life, just like before.

    If it hurts I'm sure Eureka wouldn't be so comfortable playing with it's toys like it does.

    Try blowing forcibly on the cats anus.
  • Deleted user 12 September 2012 23:23:49
    Maybe so but it's not normal for a cats tail to be erect all the time.

    Perhaps you could try eating a few of those cookies before walking your son to school, tomorrow morning?

    If you get home without getting arrested then you'll know that it's definitely a problem with the cat and NOT the cookies.

    Still no answer how long this has been going on for. If it's just a few hours it's probably premature to get alarmed. If it's been a few days then yeah it's a bit weird.

    What were these biscuits? Got a link?

    Maybe you should try to confuse him?

    Oh. I fed him with those when I got home to lunch yesterday noon but up until 1:30 pm his tail was okay. My wife got home at 5:00 and then she noticed it.

    I put away the package, so I'm not really sure what was the brand. Tomorrow I'll check it at the supermarket.

    Cats don't really have active control over their tails. If he's in no discomfort see if it sorts itself over the next few days.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Really? That's quite a relief, actually. It must be some sort of chemical fuck up in his tail caused by the cookies.

    Hmmm, not so sure about that. Cats use their tails to indicate their mood along with their ears to communicate with other cats (though I accept that it may be down to instinct more than conscious control).

    But I agree with him about just giving the cat some time to see if it rectifies itself. Cats are pretty good and making a point of telling you if they're in pain, so if he's not complaining and there are no obvious signs of pain, discomfort or changes in mood then I wouldn't be too alarmed after just 24 hours.

    Give it til the weekend then if it still hasn't sorted itself, take him for a quick checkup just in case.

    After googling the stiff tail thing, the only thing I could find was a Daily Mail article making out as if there is some sort of mystery pandemic and all cats are at risk of being put down.

    Obviously I wouldn't put much stock in that, given the source.

    To be honest, you should be more concerned if the tail is limp.

    Disappointed with the lack of at least one photo In this thread. Sounds pretty mental though, I'd go to the vet.

    Limp tail is almost always due to it getting trapped in a door. Feeling tends to come back in a week.

    And while the tail as an indicator of mood is right, it is involuntary. There's no active control there, they don't reach out with it for example, or swing through trees with it etc. It's a counterbalance to improve agility, that's all.

    My cat's tail does the same whenever he's excited. Maybe he just loves dem treats?
