Cymric picture



The anurous, long-haired domesticated cat Cymric (pronounced ‘kim-rik’) has been considered by many cat fanciers and cat clubs as nothing but a variation of the Manx cat. In fact, its taillessness is something that the cat fanciers admire about. Although, some registries believe that this feline is simply a semi-long-haired variation of the ‘Manx’ breed. With little or no difference from the Manx except for the length of the hair, the most remarkable thing is that, the kittens of both the types can appear in one and the same litter. These tailless cats have a heavy, muscular structure with a round head studded with almond-like eyes. They are covered with a dense, velvety coat all over and are found in varying colors and combinations.

Cymrics - or long-haired Manx - are intelligent, affectionate, fun-loving cats that typically get along very well with other animals, including dogs. Like their short-haired counterparts, the long-haired Manx are extremely loyal to their humans and enjoy spending as much quality time with them as possible, every hour of every day. They are wonderfully playful cats. Many Cymrics can easily be taught tricks, which constantly amuse and delight friends and family members, and also household visitors. Despite their outgoing temperaments, these cats are uniformly gentle and non-aggressive and are not known to be pushy, forward or overly demanding of attention.

Grooming Requirements

Moderate Maintenance: Regular grooming is advised to keep its coat in good shape. It stimulates circulation, massages the skin, and removes debris and loose hair. Frequency should be twice a week.



Moderate Vocalization: Its vocal behavior can be tolerable. Eliminating stimuli that cause the vocalization or modifying the cat's behavior, such as keeping it occupied and content, can reduce vocalization.
