Hi There,

Cats will sometimes have a reflex like this when they are itchy. I would first check for fleas, and if your cat has any, please get something safe and effective from the vet. If the area at the base of the tail is scaly or scabby, an allergy may be present (to fleas or something else) and I recommend a vet check.

If an allergy is present, a steroid injection may be required to give your cat some relief.

Regards,
PHKitkat
