I once read somewhere (real scientific, I know) that the tail in the air gesture is one that cats only do when around humans. It has no counterpart as cat language among cats.

and i saw on the TV that among Leopards it means: "belly's full, babies are safe, my territory secure"

not a communication as much as just an expression .. like a big ol' smile

and that fits better with my Cat's usage: ONLY time her tail is not up:
sleeping, scared (of visitors), & when she was sick.

... they absolutely 'bond' --but whether there's a feeling of affection, vs habit .... dunno
