Cymric Picture

All red, white and black and no tail! This is another interesting cat photograph of the long haired Manx by professional photographer, Helmi Flick. This is a very cobby looking cat. "Cobby" means stocky and thick set in cat fancy language. Notice too how this cat leans forward. The hind legs are longer than the forelegs, which is not unusual in cats but seems to have a disproportionate effect on the stance of this purebred cat. This is a show cat and it has no tail. Sometimes cats of this breed have short tails of varying length. Dependent on the type of tail or no tail, the cat can be a show cat or a pet quality cat. Its name indicates that it comes from Wales, UK, but it was created in North America. Manx cat litters occasionally produced long haired kittens and the development started from that point. A wide range of colors and patterns are allowed under the breed standard. Read and see more if you wish...
