Default my cat has a HUGE tail

it's so long! big and fluffy. He's 6 months old and has a really big tail and big paws that don't seem to fit his body. Will he eventually "grow into" them?

We used to call Zoltan the "Lemur" because his tail was as long as the rest of his whole body. We thought he was going to be this huge cat because he had big paws and tail, but he ended up being a small cat. His tail is still a tad long for his size, but he pretty much grew into his tail and paws. I think extra long tails and extra big paws are adorable though.

He's a cutie. I'm sure he'll grow into them. Don't worry about it.

Awww, he's adorable. i agree, he will probably grow into it. Cats often look different from their kitten selves.

He is darling! I am sure he will grow into his tail. My cat looks all ears when she was a kitten. Everything tends to even out as they grow up.

I wouldn't worry about him. (He's precious, by the way.) My Dusty had a very long and floofy tail as a baby, and still does!

Now, that's a tail and a half. They're both beautiful cats.
