tail shaking

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Does anyone's cat do this? Tripod gets so excited at meal time the tip of his tail shakes. (He's not spraying.) It cracks me up because he runs over, meows "neooow!" (NOW!) and just the tip of his tail vibrates.

DeeDee does that too when she wants a treat and she's a girl.

It has animated images to help explain the cat's mood. Most of the time those generalities are true for Nano.

I think because of his arthritis, Hans can't get just the tip of his tail to move anymore. His entire tail jerks around to follow the tip's movement. I always tell him, "Hansie, I don't understand semifore. What do you want?", and he usually starts shaking his tail even harder.

Yeah! So, does Tri-Bi stand for anything? What does she look like?

Thats cute! I'm glad you mentioned Hans. I haven't heard about him in awhile and was hoping he was ok.

Tri-Bi is a calico.. I'll attach a pic.... and yes, the name does stand for something. She is a stray, and when she first started coming around she was a little "flaky," (still is! LOL!) but she was so beautiful. So, we said, that's a TRIcolored, BIpolar cat! And it click! Tri-colored.... Bi-polar.... Tri-Bi. LOL! We have weird names for our animals! We have another stray named Topaz, because she is white, but mostly orange like a Topaz gem. And we have another stray named Bif. His name means BF (best friend) because I fed him, and pet him, just once, and he followed me around like a shadow, wanting affection, like a best friend.

Milly shakes her booty and her tail when she wants something, Daisy doesn't shake at all, she just meows very very loudly.

Villy does it when she's excited about her dinner and when she's using her litter tray! It's amazing the way they can show so many emotions with just their tail!

Aww. Meish does this too except her tail is standing straight up and the tip is downward and the base of her tail shakes. It is sooo funny. Its always when we're in the kitchen fixing dinner (and she smells meat) she just gets so excited and chats up a storm... rubs her face on EVERYTHING and shakes her tail.
