A De-tailed Account of Manx Cats @ CraftyCat.im



The Isle of Man’s tailless cats are world famous, but the reason why they differ in this respect from almost
all other cats is still subject to misunderstanding, comment and speculation.
Did a TT motorcyclist run over a cat’s tail during the famous race? Did Mannanan, the island’s traditional
protector create cats without tails? Or, more prosaically, is taillessness the result of their heredity?
Divided into three sections the book covers the history of Manx cats, the animal today, and folklore
concerning why the cat has no tail.
With colour illustrations on every page, the book outlines the origins and mystery surrounding these intelligent
and friendly animals.
