Manx Cat Picture 5

This as you are probably aware is not a professional photograph. It is of a Manx cat of the “stumpy” type (short tail). She was an old cat now sadly passed on. This is a nice photograph showing the tail well. As this girl cat was ill at this time her owner the photographer ensured that she got out into the sun to lift her spirits as she was ill and staying indoors.

There are other countries where they have naturally occuring tailless cats. The mutation that causes the taillessness has occured all over world as expected (why should it be confined to one small island?). An example of a current tailless breed other than the Max is the Japanese Bob Cat. There is also the short tailed American Bobtail.
