What Is Manx Cats?

A Manx cat is a tailless cat from the Isle of Man, giving this breed its name. This tailless breed is the result of genetic mutation. They are bred from one tailless parent and one tailed parent. From a health perspective, cat owners should become aware of the potential of unique health problems related to the spine, spinal cord, and tail along with any special cat care and handling.

Did you know that a cat’s tail is critical for balance? So how can a Manx cat balance itself to walk effectively?

Researchers believe that they have especially sensitive vestibular apparatus inside their ears to overcome this genetic trait. The vestibular is the sensory system that provides a sense of balance and spatial orientation to move effectively.
