When you pat your pet dog, he wags (摆来摆去)his tail . That is his way of saying that he lovesyou . And, if you pay attention, you will see that he uses his tail to say so many things . Every move-ment of the tail means a different thing . If the dog is wagging its tail, it is a sign of friendliness ; if histail is straight, it means he is getting ready for a fight; and if his tail is tucked (塞)behind his legs, itmeans he is giving up the fight .
Unlike dogs, cats' tail language is not so expressive . When a cat feels threatened, he puffs him-self up to appear big and his tail shakes with tension . And when he is displeased with something, helashes out(甩动)his tail .
The tail language of dogs and cats has a little story behind it . Earlier, when dogs and cats hadnot become friends with human beings, they were predators . They used to hunt other animals for theirfood . When dogs went out hunting with their friends, tail language came handy .
