Hi Tracy,

yes, most of our savannahs and cats do this...can you please add an avatar or choose a gender so we do not have to look at a question mark? Thanks

Yes, it's very common, they will also poof up their tail if they are scared or feeling threatened.

Zeddie puffy tails when she is scared, smells another cat outside, or plays hide and seek. Its so cute when she is playing hide and seek...we are constantly trying to outsmart each other. I bet you can guess who wins...

I've seen them do it when they are startled, angry, or threatened, but not happy. The first time he did it I just about died laughing. The DSH likes to play fetch when the others let him.

Mine are puffy tail fanatics! They poof their tails when happy (like when you come home....from a 5 minute trip to the mailbox and they were sure they would never see you again), when playing and they did something bad, or when something scares them (the funniest is when one scares the other by jumping on them while sleeping and the sleeping kitty flies 8 feet in the air, coming down looking like a puffer fish). Here is a picture of a Nyah poofy tail: image.jpg

The hubby gave him beef jerky, his tail puffed so much you couldn't hardly see the stripes. Hubby never had cats before and didn't know that if you feed them on you they are pests, now they won't leave him alone when he's eating. There are a lot of good looking cat pic.
