This is my cat Puca. He started out with a normal tail but for some reason it now curls up towards his back. He is just over 1 yr old and it curled like that maybe 3 months ago. He is strictly an indoor cat and gets along great with the other cats. He shows no sign of pain and when he is sitting or laying down it is sometimes straight and sometimes kinda curled. But 100% of the time if he is walking or standing with his tail up it is curled. Anyone else have a cat like this ? The vet didn’t seem concerned but I’m worried it’s a sign of a nerve or neurological problem. In the picture it’s only at half mast but you get the idea.

It just seems strange that one day he has a straight tail and then his tail is curled towards his head and the tip touches his back. At least it makes it easier to tell him part from his brother. :p

It could be something inherited. If he doesn't seem in pain i wouldn't worry about it. Check into Google and see what it could be.
