    My cat has grown fur on its tail ???

    Hello dear owners of these amazing creatures. I have a 3 month old sphynx male kitten. When we got him he had no fur except a little around his nose. In the last 2-3 days, I notice that white and stiff hairs have sprouted on the tail, short but thick. I am asking for ideas or advice what could...

    Tail Bumps

    Good morning all. Wondering if you ever saw this before on your babies tail? I'm unsure what's causing it.

    Sphynx kitten blackheads on tail?

    Hi friends! So, when I picked Amara up she had these marks on her tail. I just assumed it was her skin pattern. She’s traditionally all white With 3 diluted patches. So I just assumed it was her tail patterning. Now I’m starting to think it could be blackheads? I tried to pop one, I think one...

    I got my sphynx kitten a month ago. He’s four months old. He got ring worm the second week of having him so I had to quarantine him in my bathroom. He got stressed out from that and starting biting the crap out of his tail and it ended up getting infected and needing to get partly amputated but...

    I’m beside myself I’ve just been cleaning my church and lifted his tail and it’s red raw! I’m so upset as I’m going away on Wednesday and he’ll be having someone pop round a few times a day! I’m going to call the vets in the morning! I feel like crying as I feel so bad for him he must be In a...

    Broken Tail

    Our little Queen, Daenerys injured her tail last month. It’s unknown how as she just waltz in to our sons room when we were all playing sporting a new crooked tail... but all my research says that tail injuries are mostly from falls. This would make sense because she is by far the clumsiest cat...

    Tail chewing

    Hi. I’m not on that often, so please forgive me if this has been asked before. I didn’t find a thread. My Cyrus is about 4. In the last couple of months he’s been chewing the end of his tail. I’ve put sour apple on it, but that hasnt stopped him. Luckily, he’s not drawn blood, but I’m still...

    Kinked/Compressed Tail

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to give you all an update of Merlin and Tansy. Both kittens have been doing great, except that on Sunday we noticed Merlin had a sizable lump on his tail. Feeling it, it was hard and I guessed some sort of fracture or maybe a hard abscess. Hubby took him to the vet...

    Chewed bleeding tail?

    Gabbi on and off has chewed her tail and screamed after. We tell her off and she knows when she does it that she'll hear us shouting a little. Sometimes she'll leave it alone for months and months, however the last week or two she's constantly been attacking her tail. It was bleeding again...

    Cat pooping on tail

    does anyone else have the problem of your cat pooping on its tail or stepping in its own poop, I'm not sure how to stop this but he runs around the house with poop on his tail if I don't notice it right away and I'm worried it's going to get onto the furniture

    Tail tip issue?

    Hey all, just another question from this new sphynx momma. Virokketh has this weird bump on the end of his tail. When we first got him it looked like either a pimple or that the end of the last tail bone was poking through the skin (not bloody, just very pale in color). It's been a few weeks...

    Tail help

I was born in August 2013 - In the beginning of february 2014 mom&dad decided to take me home - I lived with about 8 other sphynx cats at a place of a russian woman, who did't care very well for us.. She smoked in...

    Bent/Broken Tail??

    Worried Mom here! Our Midi always curls her tail into a circle when she sits down. Always. Well, today, she jumped up onto my lap and I was petting her and felt a hard lump on her tail. I tried to straighten her tail out, to see if it was a cyst or acne, like our older girl sometimes gets. No...

    Questions about Buster's Tail

    Hello. It's unfortunately been quite a while since I've been on. This weekend I came home from school to visit my family and of coarse, Buster! Well I just noticed something odd about his tail. Buster usually has a good amount of fuzz on his tail with a white tip. While petting him I realized...

    Kitten biting on tail

    My 5 month old sphynx is biting her tail to the point of leaving marks and scratches on it. She did have a skin problem a month back that has now cleared up... But her tail is red in spots. Not sure if because she's biting it or bumps are causing her to bite at it. On another topic, anyone know...

    OMG I think her tail is broken!

    I'm not sure when or how but I noticed tonight that Izzy's tail had a "kink" in it and it swollen. She can still move her tail but she doesn't want me to touch it. We are going to the vet first thing in the morning. I'm crying I'm so upset. She fell off her cat tree two days ago, and I think it...
