Customer Question

my cat suffers from Crystals, she is on a special diet. She has been OK for a good 8months.
These past few days she has kept out of the way in one of the bedrooms. I noticed this morning her tail quivering (like spasms) would this be an indication of pain

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Tail quivering can indicate alertness and interest when the tail is held down and being happy to see you when the tail is held up. It's not an indicaton of pain.
