Manx

The origins if the tailless Manx are uncertain, but they have long been associated with the Isle of Man. The Manx is the shorthaired version of the Cymric but has a double coat. The body has a short back and deep flank, with the hindquarters rounded and high which produces the rabbity hopping gait. The show cat must be completely tailless, (known as a Rumpy), with a hollow where the tail would normally begin Variations to this exist in the breed namely, a Rumpy-riser has a small tail knob, a Stubby or Stumpy has a very short tail and a Longy has a shortened tail. They are calm and gentle in nature being affectionate to their owners and tend to follow them everywhere. They may be suspicious of strangers.
