Hi, I'm Dr. Jenna Olsen, and this is, what are the moods of cats through their tails? So cat's tails can tell us a lot about how they're feeling at any given moment. It's definitely not fool proof, so, but hopefully you'll gain a little insight through this. So when a cat is walking, and their tail is held high, that generally means they're feeling pretty friendly, pretty relaxed. The higher it goes, the more confident they're feeling. They're waving their flag high. As their tail goes lower, they're generally a little more unsure. They may be fearful. The other thing it could signify is that they're in pain. If you see a cat with its tail held low, and it seems unable to move in either direction, that could signify a tail injury, and you definitely want to see your veterinarian about that. So when the tail is low to the ground, and moving back and forth just like Phineas's tail is right now, they're generally pretty annoyed. So you'd like to avoid them at all costs. The other time you're gonna avoid your cat is when they're standing up, the tail is erect, the hair is poofed, that generally means they're feeling rather aggressive, or a little alarmed. So it would probably be best not to handle them at that time. So I'm Dr. Jenna Olsen, and this is how to tell a cat's mood through its tail. Thanks for watching.
