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.

Remember! All breed profiles are general and every cat is an individual.
