Ive read and witnessed how a cat will walk with its tail down when it’s not well. I’m not sure about one of our “feral” cats. She’s fine all day but the last couple nights she will lay as shown in the picture. She hasn’t seemed sick prior to laying this way. I’m thinking maybe she’s afraid something might sneak up behind her so she sits with her tail under her? There two other cats in the colony and another one that has been around a long time trying to break into the group. Plus there are raccoons here daily. I was just wondering if you all have seen a cat do this out of fear. Thank you..
