A Tail Tale

A Tail Tale

My friend Olivia sent me these photos of her cat. One day the cat came in looking like she had just missed being coyote food. Strangely, she didn’t act like anything was wrong. My friends resisted the urge to just nip off what was left of the end of her tail and brought her to the vet who tended to her and also shed some light on the mystery. She explained that they often see this type of injury this time of year. The reason is that when it starts to get cold, cats will sometime look for a warm place. That warm place may be under the hood of a car. If the car gets started while the cat is under the hood and the cat doesn’t get out in time injuries can happen.
