When you cat is sitting where does he keep his tail. My Himalayan keeps it straight out so it gets stepped on often. My Savannah keeps his tail wrapped around his body with the tip wrapped around his front paw.
Alkee often keeps it out straight, especially in the kitchen when she sits right behind me while I'm busy at the counter....she often gets it stepped on. I apologize and she comes right back to behind my feet again. Zuba has a half tail that his momacat mistook as an umbilical cord while birthing. He always keeps his tail tucked tightly by a hind foot when sitting, but wags it a lot if looking at birds or squirrels.
Ginfis is 50% to 50% ..when she sits on something high, sofa or chair, she lets her tail straight or just hanging from the chair.
But when she sitts on the floor, she wraps it around her legs...like she is scarred that someone will step on it
