Hi there,

The tail does look to be bruised and kinked from it. She could have broken it when the lamp fell on her.

How long have you had her? It's good that it doesn't seem to be causing any issues for her. It might just heal that way. I'm not sure exactly what a vet would do in this case.

Ok thanks she has been ok and has never shown any kind of discomfort would the bruise go away over time? Or will it be like that for her whole life?

The bruise should go away but the kink might not. I would just keep an eye on the tail and make sure it heals up ok.

I agree it doesn't look bad at all at this point. Just keep an eye on it to watch for obvious worsening condition but so far so good.
