Hi there. My name is***** to hear that about Storm's incident. I will do my best to help with your question. First I have a few questions to help me better understand your situation.

1) How long ago has it been since the incident?

2) Where on the tail is the injury (is it close to the body or closer to the tip)?

3) Did you manage to see how the injury occurred (was it bent too far, stepped on, or was he accidentally dropped)?
