My cat is always waging her tail. She is a Maine Coon and is always waging her tail. I had a Male Coon at one time, and he barely waged his tail. I thought this was a dog thing?
Ally's tail seems to never stop wagging. You might say it is more of a constant twitching but it drives Persi crazy. I had always read cats were irritated when they wagged their tail, unlike dogs. But I do not think Alley is constantly irritated. Maybe she just loves annoying Persi!
George (part Maine Coon) LOVES his tail - and he takes every opportunity to show it off (he's very proud of it). I've learned to tell the difference between the "get away from me" and the "I'm enjoying what's happening" tail swish.
We have a big gray tabby named Spock and he's got a short stubby tail, about 2 1/2 inches long. It looks just like a dog's tail so when he's swishing it, he's actually WAGGING it. It's hilarious! It's normal though, don't worry.
both my cats wag their tails..especially when i'm playing with them...
they love chasing the laser beam on the wall, floor etc..and they wag their tails...
of course I know when they are annoyed cause they thump the tails..lol
