Originating from the Isle of Man, the Manx cat is famous for its short or non-existent tail, a naturally occuring mutation. They are becoming increasingly rare. These shorthaired cats are famed as a tail-less breed, although they can sport anything from a slight dip where a tail would be to a full tail that’s often longer that a standard tail.
Exhibited in cat shows since the 1800s, Manx come in all colours and patterns, with longhaired variants known as Cymric.
