Cat w/ dislocated tail
I've been feeding a stray kitten that is now 9 mos old. It showed up a week & half ago with what appears to be a dislocated tail. (Large tender bump at the base of the tail and two wounds.) From research I have done, there is no real fix for the tail and it would heal on its own. As long as he could pee, he would be okay. So we have been treating the wound w/ peroxide. After about 3 days he was feeling better and wanted to go back outside. Since then he has been coming and going as cats do. He seems healthy in all respects now, except that his tail hangs. I know he has feeling in it because when I touch the tip he looks at me to see what I am up to. The vet said that there could be nerve damage.
Has anyone experienced this? Will he eventually be able to move his tail again? I know nerve damage can take a very long time to heal.
