Very! Not every cat is silly enough to play with their own tail, but for those that can ignore the sensations coming from their tail as they pounce on it it's a very fun game. It's more common in kittens but some cats go their whole lives convinced a devious furry snake is following them. As long as they don't bite their tail hard it's not a problem. Keep an eye out for injuries on his tail- if you see swelling or he ever can't hold it up he should see a vet as he may have given himself an abscess. More likely though, he'll just keep having good harmless fun!
