Contrary to popular belief, our feline friends did not lose their tails to a slamming door, or a grabby toddler, or even a boating accident. They are naturally tail-less! They are a breed of cat called Manx which originated on the Isle of Man. The lack of tail or nubby tail is the result of a genetic mutation. They are also known for having personalities that are more like dogs, thus making them the perfect match for our wild little bookstore!
