The Cymric is a solid, chunky and compact cat, medium to large sized, with a semi-long coat. The most notable feature of the Cymric is the lack of tail, - they share the same ancestry as the Manx, so as a result may be a ‘rumpy’ – no tail; ‘rumpy-riser’ – 1-3 tail vertebrae; stumpy – up to 1/3 of a tail and finally; longie – full tail.  

The coat is medium-long and dense, well-padded across the body, further adding to the rounded, chunky appearance of this breed.  

8 - 14 years
3.6 - 5.4kg
Comes in all colours and patterns accepted for the Manx type.

This breed has a higher risk of health issues

The lack of a tail is a severe genetic defect and the Manx cat's 'deformed' spine may damage the spinal cord and affect nerves to important organs as well as increasing the chance of arthritis developing from an early age. In some cats the anal passage may be narrowed and this can cause bowel blockages.


Sociable and playful, whilst the Cymric is a muscular and athletic cat, they are not overly energetic. Pleasantly chatty, with a sweet-sounding voice rather than a strident or demanding one, they enjoy the company of humans, but are able to amuse themselves while the family is at work or school.
