Are Manx cats’ tails docked? — 1 Comment

  1. I have a neighbor who has a particular affinity for manx cats; loves the taillessness. I rescued a cat who seemed to have an injured tail and once I did it was determined that he indeed had two old injuries that caused two kinks. It was partially inoperative and he was in some discomfort but I was assured that he might suffer even more if his tail was docked. It’s a complex and risky operation that does cost quite a bit too, so I sadly could not help him. I think it’s adding insult to injury to take a mutation and further it, or especially to dock a healthy tail, which my neighbor would consider. Since I learned of all this I have since disabused her of the unnatural notion.
