Cat thinks tail is a stalker

My cat has suddenly decided that his tail is not a part of him. He catches sight of it, goes completely still and watches it for a second, then runs off and hides. After doing this several times he starts attacking it while hissing, biting and growling - it’s actually terrifying. Has anyone else ever had this problem? If so, what was it? Got him a vet appointment but it’s not until after new year. Google searching led me to fleas - but he’s sitting watching it and trying to run off before attaching so not sure that’s it!

Thought it was fairly normal. Particularly in cats not over endowed with brain cells!

Leroy regularly gets shocked by his tail, normally when he curls up and his tail slowly settles on his nose in a waft of fluff.

He's also frequently surprised that it doesn't fit in the cardboard box with him.

Can you have a look at your cat's tail to see if there's any sign of injury or fleas?
