My kitten mews every time i touch her tail or butt.She is an indoor cat.I have 2 other cats, and one chases her around the house.i think she might have bitten her. but i am not sure.she was fine this morning,when i came home from school she was sitting on my sister.then when i finished my homework she wouldnt go near me.what happend to my sweet little kitty???

P.S. How can i stop my other cat from chasing her???we tried a water bottle but she doesnt listen.

You can't and shouldn't try to stop your cats chasing each other etc, this is normal cat behavior and is often only play and is important for there happiness.

Are both your cats spayed / neutered? If not then this would reduce any aggression they may have.

As for cats tail. If I were you I would not touch it for a few days and see if it gets any better. If more symptoms occur or if the tail is still painful after another day or so then I would recommend taking her to see a vet in case it has been badly bruised or fractured or if it is a bite it may become infected and would need antibiotics.

Hope fully it is just a mild pain that will heal in a few days.

best wishes Kate
