tail quivering by Sheryl Barber
My cat has an interesting tail quiver. It is not the usual twitch or tail slap on the floor. She actually makes it quiver very rapidly while it is raised straight in the air. I have never noticed any of my other cats exhibiting this behavior. Anyone familiar with this behavior and what it means?

Just switched from Papurr to Swheat Scoop Litter by [email protected]
I've got a bag of WBCL to get rid of too. I switched because of the dust tracking all over the house too. I have 12 litterboxes with WBCL and have had none of these problems. I wash and change the litter in the boxes completely every 2-3 weeks. It has worked much better for me than the clay...
