picking cat up by tail?

by Rosalie
(Yuma AZ USA)

I know someone who picks up his cats & kittens by the tail and also be the head. I m sure that this is dangerous but he insists it's okay. could you direct me to some academic scientific resource that will settle this controversy? Thanks


If I knew this person I would report them to the SPCA or similar association.

The cats tail is attached to the cat spine and serious injuries can occur. I don't know of an academic scientific resource but you could contact your local university's veterinary training dept. for assistance.

However, here are the links to pages related to the cat spine that may help you understand:
