Sometimes, just by looking at your cat’s attitude, you can tell what’s going on inside his head. The tail, for example, is one of the best indicators of your mood. Spend some time observing your cat’s behavior, and you will see how much information you can get from the movements of its tail.
If your cat moves calmly through its territory with its tail raised, it means that it feels confident and happy. An upright tail expresses happiness and a friendly demeanor. Notice the end of the tail when it is raised. If the tip is slightly bent, it means that you are intensely happy.

Your cat is asking if you want to take a break from your busy life to play with him. This position usually indicates a playful attitude and that your cat is looking forward to sharing a fun time with you.
Be careful. A stiff tail in a low position can be a sign of an aggressive attitude. If It has a low tail, it means that its mood is on the ground. However, be aware that certain breeds, such as Persians, tend to hold their tails low for no particular reason.

Position: Vigorous movement
A tail that flutters back and forth indicates a combination of fear and aggressiveness. You must interpret it as a warning to keep your distance.
A tail that sways slowly from side to side usually means that your cat is focused on one object. You will probably see it adopt this position just before jumping on a toy or catching a food kibble that has fallen out of the bowl.
Position: Curled around another cat
When your cat wraps its tail around another cat, it’s like when you put your arm behind someone’s back. It means friendship.
