Hi all--my husband and I, finding ourselves with much more space after a recent move and with both Marple (~5 yo female shorthaired torby) and Radish (1.5 yo male medium haired brown tabby) settled in, have decided to add a third cat to the mix. We found a sweet but shy 7 month old orange boy at a Humane Society-partnered cat cafe this past weekend, and I will be picking him up after work today! We've got the guest bathroom set up for him and refreshed our memories on what to expect with bringing a new cat home, as well as introducing a cat to an established cat household. What I haven't found much information on is his tail--or rather, his lack thereof. Marple and Radish both have their full tails, but he's just got a fist-sized stub that kind of curls into a knob at the end. He eliminates fine (he happened to decide he needed to do both 1 and 2 right in front of us while we were visiting) and he doesn't seem to have any balance issues, although he wasn't really doing anything more acrobatic than relieving himself when we met him. The Humane Society also didn't have any information on his tail, so we're not sure if it's congenital or circumstantial. He was brought in alone but trapped in an urban area with known feral colonies, and he likely had some amount of human socialization growing up. Anyway, does anyone with experience with stub-tailed cats have a (tail)tip or two on anything to look out for? I like stories too btw, so please feel free to share any tales about tails!
