The history of the Isle of Man's tailless cat
Back to the top The origin of the Isle of Man's tailless cat is believed to be from the British Isles hundreds of years ago.
Since there were many merchant ships moored on the Isle of Man and all the merchant ships were keeping cats, it was very difficult to know who the true ancestors of the Isle of Man, but the long-haired and short-haired Man Island tailless cats had their original the symbol of mutation.
In the Isle of Man record, there is a description of the Isle of Man tailless cat that was produced by a mutation in the domestic cat on the Isle of Man.
The Isle of Man's tailless cat has been confirmed for many years in the US CFA. The oldest Stud Book, vol #19 is also listed as one of the CFA's confirmed varieties in the 1920s.
Since the "tailless" gene of the Isle of Man's tailless cat is dominant, the kitten in the same litter may have a complete tail, a short tail, a little tail (rumpy riser) or no tail (rumpies).
The Champion of the CFA Cat Show only accepts a little rumpy riser or a madame tailless cat with no rumpies, while a Hayman cat with other tail lengths can participate in AOV (Any Other Variety) group.
Today, there are many female cats that are used for reproduction, but they are long tails, and how many super champion cats are produced by the tailed Hayman Island cats (both male and female).
Therefore, the tailed Hayman Island cat provides a role in consolidating its lineage during reproduction.
