Lulver TAILLESS MANXES DOZE, AND PRY, AND GLARE LIKE ANY OTHER CAT Named for the Isle of Man, its place of origin, this cat shares taillessness with Russian breeds. "Captain Kidd" comes face toface with himself in the mirror, while Champion "Snow Maiden" nods drowsily, and "Bobbie" (right) seems to be watching for amouse. Mrs. P.M. Bailey, of Washington, D. C., owns all three. Absolute taillessness, without even a stub, is the criterion of the perfect MANX.
