Description of Manx

The Breed History

It is reported by some that Manx cats were originally brought from Japan to North America by traders. The tailless trait is autosomal dominant in this breed and recessive in the Japanese Bobtail thus refuting the theory that these tail mutants share a common origin. Another theory places breed origins on the Isle of Man. The original cats were both long and shorthaired. Records on the Isle of Man document their origin from domestic cats by a process of spontaneous mutation. CFA recognized the bred in the 1920s; longhairs in 1990. In some registries, longhaired Manx are termed Cymric. The CCA recognized the Cymric ("kim-rick") in 1976. In 1994, longhairs became a division within Manx in the CFA. In some registries they are still separate breeds. No outcrosses allowed.

Physical Characteristics

Points of Conformation: The Manx is of medium size and cobby (stocky) conformation; features tend to roundness. A large, rounded head, with full cheeks is the standard. Ears are small-medium, round tipped, and angled outward (so-called "cradle" set). The nose is broad, medium length, and straight in profile. Neck is short. They possess round feet.
