Hi. Welcome. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about Abbey's situation with her tail. How long has it been this limp? Have you seen her since it started urinate in a controlled manner?
I'm again sorry to hear this situation is going on. Honestly, at this point, just getting her to your regular vet is the very first thing that needs to be done for Abbey. With that tail hanging straight down, I'm worried that there is a fracture at the base of the tail. I see one of these every 6 months or so at my ER. She could have had it broke and this is causing it to hang limply. The most important thing when this happens, is to make sure that they can continue to urinate in a controlled manner. Some tail fractures can affect their ability to urinate. If it is broke, then most likely there isn't a whole lot that can be done but time. I'll be honest and a fair number of these cats need their tail amputated because of this as they start to get sores on the tail from not feeling it.
