HuhOOOOOOOOOO Poor widdle puddy tat.....

I have several half wild cats around here, they show up for dinner, but don't try and touch them.  Biting or scratching will be the sign they want down. 
Today, while I was feeding them, I noticed one looked a bit strange, his tail was a bit short, like about 2 inches.  On closer inspection (from 6 or 8 ft away) I could see that the 'bone' was still there, about the size of a large needle, but the hair and skin was completely gone.  So, I have a Red Tabby Puddy Tat with a short tail, who won't let me get hold of him to doctor.  I am wondering what he got his tail caught in, but guess I'll never know.
I'll try and get a photo of it, soon, but not making any promises. Why do mom cats keep kittens away from us, until they are too old to tame?

Poor baby! It should heal ok on it's own. You would need full body gear and face mask to get ahold of him. You could get a trap from your local humane society and trap it, take it in and let them fix the tail and fix him/her and release her back at home when it's healed up. They have programs to cover the costs since they aren't your cats.
