hi my peoples
i found another cat without a tail
look at that nifty collar!
these cat come from the isle of man
and are tailless because of a genetic mutation.
there is a story that they don’t have tails because
noah shut the ark door on the manx’ tail and it got cut off.
i don’t think anyone believes that.
they are really round heavy cats
and peoples think they sort of look like bowling balls.
with back legs that are longer than the front
it looks like their rump is up in the air.
better than having a nose outta joint!
they are smart and often play fetch like dogs
i do that
and sometimes bury their toys
i don’t do that.
mama gets all upset when i dig in the plant pots.
manx cats are even-tempered and affectionate and calm.
probably because they are afraid of losing another part if they misbehave.
