Manx cats are tailless cats by birth and yes as I've posted before originate from the Isle of Man. The cat in the photo is the same one I have posted previously, but you couldn't really see he had no tail in that one. As you can see here, no swishing tail, not even a stump. In the Manx language they are called a "Stubbin" and other nicknames include, stubbie, rumpy, bobtail manxie and dogcat. Sure I will find more nicknames after this post.
I never here anyone refer to Manx cats in these terms though as types. You mainly see the Rumpy the completely tailless one very muscular and tabby in colouring. This is the only tortoise shell rumpy I have ever seen in Ramsey. In fact there aren't many Manx cats around my part of Ramsey. I had hoped to show you another one at some time but they all seem to have got passports and gone travelling.
Have you ever seen a Manx cat, or even owned one, and did you know they originated from the Isle Of Man?
