Cat cries when i touch her tail

My cat recently started acting funny. Her tail is usually up in the air but is now tucked down. I tried to check out her backside but she cried when i held her tail up. She hesitates to sit down properly. Please help!!!

It sounds to me like she may have damaged her tail or the bottom of her spine. The other possibility is that she has a bad parasite problem which is causing her discomfort in that area.

In either case you definitely need to take her to the vet, at the very least for some pain relief. It must be very difficult for her to sit down etc.

best wishes Kate

My kitten is always whining ... She tried climbing our kitchen table and she fell.. After that everytime I touch her tail very softly she whines a lot. Could it be broken?
