The peculiarities which distinguish the breeds of cat, such as blue eyes, chocolate masks, long hair and taillessness, are merely variations which isolation, sometimes combined with climatic conditions, has fixed as types.

Cross a Manx cat with a common cat and you get common kittens, with tails of sorts. Once in a while there’s a tailless throwback to keep the rabbit-cat stories alive.
