bite on tail

by Dawn Peterson
(CF IA USA)

is it normal for a female cat to hide or stay under the bed all day from a 3 day old bite to her tail? which she did well she was chasing her tail yes it bleeded a little but not alot i have been putting neosprin on it but today she wont come out even with food

RESPONSE:

Cats hide when they are afraid or have physical problems so that is normal, however, such a lengthy stay suggests a second problem.

My cats occasionally catch a glimpse of their tail in sunlight etc. that makes them playful and they chase it for a few minutes. What I find unusual is that your cat actually bit itself and caused injury.

I would take your cat to the vet and have it checked for a problem with the tail that is so irritating it got bitten. Check for fleas or other skin irritations such as a skin rash that prompted this action.
