    Default My cats tail fell off, no shit

    One of my out door cats tail fell off.
    About a month ago I noticed the end of my cats tail was bent and
    crooked. I figured it busted it somehow. It didn't seem in pain in anyway.
    Yesterday, while petting her I felt dried stuff at the tip of her tail.
    I thought she might have dipped it in her food, or something.
    As I was walking to the garage I saw what looked like a furball.
    I thought" Humm, that's a weird looking furball'
    I bent down to pick it up and it hit me "hey, thats part of a cat tail.
    Sure enough, I check on the cat with the broken tail and the end was gone.
    She seems fine, there was no bleeding.
    Can a cat loose the tip of a tail and be fine?
    She looks and acts fine?

    Might want to take her to the vet for a checkup just in case. She might be just fine, but she could also have an infection and that could be a threat to her health.

    HOLY SHIT!!!!! I just had that same thing happen to my indoor cat!!! I noticed that same thing on the ground in my house at the edge of the door near my computer room. Two hours later my 4 year old says "Dada.....cuddles (thats what she named him) tail is not soft anymore its all sticky!!! So I go find the cat and 2" of his tailbone is sticking out and dripping blood. Take him to the Vet and they had to cut 3" of his tail off....Still have no idea how it happened....maybe got slammed in a door but dunno....400.00 bucks later...here is the end result

    Whoo, what is going on?
    Poor kitty.
    Did you save the stub? It could replace the age old Rabbits foot
    lucky charm. :ROTF:

    Not sure Finn but it looked just like your pic...the wife tossed it before we even knew what was going on. Figured it maybe got slammed in a door or caught in the recliner when one of us was closing it...never heard a peep from him though...

    That looks like what happened to my Mom's cat years ago.. caught the tail in the door (lots of blood though). Had to be amputated (it was much closer to the base, where the tail was thicker though)
    She lived til a ripe old age...
    I'd have the vet check to rule out infection in the bone...

    My friend's dog chewed its own tail off once. It was pretty nasty looking. The stupid thing was running around and its tail looked like it was hanging at a strange angle. When we had a closer look, we could see it was chewed to the bone, and hanging on by a thread so to speak. The dog didn't seem to care at all. We were going to take him to the vets, but before we could get ahold of him, it just fell off.

    A friend of mine had a cat with an infected tail. It was an outdoor cat. This crazy motherfucker cut it off with a pair of big ass garden shears and then cauterized the wound. No shit. This guy also built his own house, including the majority of the fixtures, build his own tools, special machines...and is a well known artist in S. Louisiana who specializes in metal work. He is a real "do it yourselfer".

    I was checking cattle one day and found an entire cows tail laying on the ground. later found the cow it belonged to. its fairly common, a cow steps on the tail of one whos laying down, causing it to jump up to its feet and thus popping its tail off, can't really see it too well but I'll post a pic
