The beautiful, but somewhat odd-looking, Cymric is more or less a longhaired Manx, with the characteristic Manx trait of having either no tail at all (a “rumpy”), a very short tail (a “stumpy”) or a halftail (a “longy”).

The breed was the result of a genetic mutation, and by the 1980s they were being exhibited in shows. Like their shorthaired Manx ancestors, the Cymrics are affectionate and active cats, with front legs shorter than back legs, giving them a curious “bunny-hop” walk.
