A cat can use its tail as a signalling mechanism. A high tail often suggests confidence or happiness and can be used as a friendly greeting. A half-raised tail can indicate less pleasure, while a low hung tail can show unhappiness.

A cat's tail can also swing from side to side. Slow and gentle swinging often suggests a cat is relaxed and monitoring its surroundings.

A twitched tail tip can suggest the cat is hunting or may be irritated, while lots of twitching can indicate displeasure. If a cat is becoming irritated and on the verge of biting and scratching, the tail is typically very low to the ground and moving quickly from side to side.

A surprised or scared cat may puff its tail. And an excited and extremely happy cat, for example during play, may hold its tail completely straight up.
