Siamese Cat Kinked Tail — 6 Comments

  1. I am wondering if the Kinked or short tail affects the cat’s balance at speed and makes it less agile than a cat with a normal tail, without a fully functional tail to throw around and compensate for balance it must surely be less efficient as a hunter.

  2. Michael, most of the stray cats in Indonesia have kinked or truncated tails like the cat shown in the photo.So this observation was defined by Naturalist/scientist Charles.Darwin and hence seems to be a dominant inherent trait in cats from these Country’s. Stray cats in India have normal tails and kinked tails are a rarity.
