hurt cat tail

by Cindy
(Schdy, NY)

my Kadie got her tail shut in the door and lost a piece of skin..she had a meltdown when it happened and went after the other 2 cats in the house (like they did it ) after she settled down and I checked her it's not broken that I can tell, she ate and social with the other 2 cats (her mother and father) now 6 hours later she is under our bed and won't let the other 2 in the room, hissing and growning under the bed..this is not her nature she has never hissed in her life ? I am concerned

cats will often act like this when they are in pain or afraid. It is likely that she may be in some pain from the injury and so i would recommned a trip to the vets for some pain relief.

My cat recently got his tail hurt and he was very down and reclusive. However after a pain relief injection he was much happier.

It is always best to have the injury checked anyway in case there is any damage, sometimes it can be difficult to see.

Hope he is better soon

best wishes Kate
