My cat's tail became entangled in the mechanical mechanism under my power head recliner. The chair's footrest was beginning to be raised while the cat was under the chair (I did not know she was under the chair at the time - the footrest was raised about 6 inches). My cat began to scream and I was not able to dislodge her. After several seconds she broke free from the chair. Upon inspection I was horrified to find that a 4 inch section of her tail had been torn off by the chair. This necessitated an emergency trip to an ER Vet (this occurred on a Saturday afternoon), amputation surgery and several follow up visits to our regular vet. Not only am I concerned about pets being hurt by this mechanism, but could envision a small child having a finger injured by this type of chair.
