What does it mean when cats wag their tails?

Like dogs, cats say things with their tails. What they’re saying depends on the particular tail motion.

If the cat’s tail is doing a thrashing motion, the cat is angry. If your cat is near you doing a quivering motion with her tail, it’s an expression of affection.

When your cat is simply relaxing and the tail is doing a leisurely swishing motion, that signals contentment. I liken it to a relaxed person swinging his foot back and forth, the way we humans do sometimes.
