Default Bent tail?

Yesterday hubby noticed a bump on Gemmas tail. It seems as though it was broken and healed. It's not something you can see so a pic wont help, not visible. She is not in any kind of pain and it's probably something that happened a when she was younger. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this... Couldn't get much info online, going to ask the vet if there is maybe a procedure that could get done while she is being spayed or something or if she needs to see a specialist. Not too worried because it doesn't seem to bother her..

One of my cats was a feral who had had her tail broken in two places when she was a kitten but it was healed when I got her and other then her tail being really short and bent it has never bothered her.

May have broken in birth, or in utero? I wouldn't worry as long as it doesn't bother her.

Thanks yes I wonder when it happened. I saw some online that were horrible, seemed like an L shape on the tail.

Odie has a kink in the end of her tail. My friend's chi is from the same breeder and has one as well. He broke his leg and had to get an x-ray and the image showed that his tail was never broken, it just grew that way.

Addy Has a kink in her tail too. My vet told me it was a dislocated segment that happened in utero. Usually when they are born into large liters. Addy was one of five pups.

Yep...it can often happen in utero esp with big litters because they are so crammed in there. I had a pup last summer with a kink in her tail...she came from a litter of 6. It wasn't too bad...I'd actually planned on keeping her for show but she ended up being little dot of a thing. Right Kristy/2Cheese??
