Typically, for cat breeds, there are many different traditions that sometimes contradict each other. The Isle of Man is no exception – there are a lot of legends about it. Still, the emergence of safe cats immediately ignites the imagination and curiosity of people who are accustomed to the long soft tail constantly hanging around their feet. And when it is missing?

Such breeds are found in several places around the world. Some researchers believe that the animals mentioned below have been rescued from the sinking galleon of the Spanish armada, which, in a storm, crashed on the Isle of Man. Other connoisseurs are of the opinion that English sailors have transported them directly to the island from Japan, where a local species of short-haired cat lives. “Japanese” is a “beobtail” type – as in dogs, this term means that it is not quite queer.

An ancient legend tells that when the legendary Noah built the ship at the beginning of the Great Death on the planet, these cats ignored his invitation to join the other animals. But when the Noah’s Ark was about to sail. The cats thought about it, then quickly fell through the closing doors and their tails were hurt, so the breed that remained forever was safe.

These are the stories. But the really strange cat is a symbol of the island, which is located on the banks of the UK. It is widespread in all types of shades and designs and is a charming pet! Today, these animals are often found on the Isle of Man. Sneaky (or, more precisely, short-lived) cats have apparently emerged as a result of a recessive gene that sometimes occurs in abnormal spine development (the natural extension of which is the tail) and in many cases it is deadly for the animals. The breed was formed by those specimens that accidentally avoided the curse of genetics.

In practice, the man’s cat very often has some tail left (different in length), but in any case shorter than the “normal” queue. Here are the different types:
1. Type rum (code 51) – there are no tail vertebrae and there is a complete lack of tail;  having a recess in place of the missing tail, which is found by placing the thumb;
2. Type rumpy-riser (code 52) – with a few tail vertebrae, which are usually attached immobile – is a short, straight upright;
3.Type stumpy (code 53) – residual short tail with deformations (bold);
4.Type longy (code 54) – the tail is close to the normal length but is noticeably shorter.
Only the first three types of queues are allowed to be placed on feinological exhibitions.


Sick cats on the Man island sometimes have “small” tails but always have a large body that is rounded and covered with a thick double coat with a different color. The hindquarters of the animals are longer than the forelimbs, and this gives them the characteristic bouncy gait that resembles the rabbit. Her chest is wide and the back line is tilted – so the cat’s back is raised. The head is round but longer than wide.

The muzzle is protruding, with marked cheeks. In the profile, the nose looks a light chip and the color of the nasal sponge is in harmony with the overall coloration of the hair cover. The eyes are very round and wide, with a slight inclination to the nose. Wide ears are medium sized, broad at the base and gradually thinner and rounded at the end. The typical breed of this breed is that no two absolutely safe cats should be collected. Always one should have a whole or a partial queue. When collecting a manx with a single-length long-haired cat, long-haired mango kittens are born, though rarely. A kitten of this breed is taken over 4 months of age.
