One of our cat trees, filled with ripening kittens!
Currtail's Mary's Joy, an excellent example of a
Manx. She has the rounded body, depth of flank,
and rocker ear set seen in a show quality Manx.
BabyJoy is retired from showing and spends her
spare time in my lap!
Currtail was established in 2002 by me, Roslyn Curry, and my son, Elliott. My goal is to produce
healthy Manx cats that would make their ancestors from the Isle of Mann proud!

Our kittens are born under our close supervision and are handled from day one. This ensures a well
socialized cat. They receive regular veterinary check-ups and have completed all of their "kitten shots"
before they are ready to leave our home.  We do not believe in caging our kittens. They need to
explore their world and learn limits. Cat trees, scratching posts, and cat beds are part of our home's
decor!
What is a Manx??
While it's true that a Manx is a tailless cat, not all tailless cats are Manx. The Manx
breed is one of the oldest breeds recognized by the CFA. The breed originated
hundreds of years ago on the Isle of Mann in the Irish Sea. Manx are known for their
round appearance, often called "a bowling ball with legs". The head, cheeks, and body
are rounded, with the rear legs longer than the front. The chest is broad. The eyes are
round and the ear set resembles the rocker on a baby's cradle. The tailless gene is
dominant, so kittens can be born with a full tail, shortened tail, rise (called a "rumpy
riser"), or no tail ("rumpy"). The rumpy and rumpy riser are eligible for competition at
CFA shows. Other tail lengths are used in breeding programs to ensure sturdiness of
the offspring. Manx can be either shorthaired or longhaired (also known as Cymric) and
both coat lengths can be born in the same litter. Manx come in a wide variety of colors
including smoke, tabby, solid, calico, and bi-color. Manx are very intelligent and playful
and can be taught to "fetch" and play other games. They are a loving, quiet breed with
a sweet expression. They make a wonderful addition to the family!
