    "Douglas is the capital and largest town of the Isle of Man, with a population of 27,938. It is located at the mouth of the River Douglas, and on a sweeping bay of two miles. " Wikipedia

    The Borough of Douglas coat of arms were granted on March 2, 1896.

    In the dexter chief corner, an old Viking Ship is placed; in the adjoining quarter the Eagle and Child, representing the Arms of the Derby family. Immediately under the Viking Ship is placed a Lion Rampant, representing the Arms of the Athole family; and in the quarter adjoining, the Three Legs of Man ungartered, the whole being surmounted by the Monarchal Crown of Her Majesty the Queen, as Lord of Man.

    Underneath is a scroll containing the words in the Manx language : " Kiannoortys cheusthie jeh Kiannoortys" which, in English means 'Government within a Government' , the Latin being 'Imperium in Imperio'.

    Manx cats are without tails. Mostly. But I had no idea about the reasons why and the variations possible :

    * Rumpy (rumpie) or dimple rumpy – having no tail at all, though often a tuft of hair where the tail would have grown from the rump.

    * Riser or rumpy riser – having a bump of cartilage under the fur, most noticeable when the animal is happy and raising its tail end.

    * Stumpy (stumpie) – having a partial tail of vestigial, fused vertebrae, up to about 3 cm (1 in) long.

    * Stubby (stubbie), shorty, or short-tailed – having a short tail of non-fused bones, up to about half an average cat tail.

    * Longy (longie), tailed, or taily (tailie) – having a half- to normal-length tail.

    (Wikipedia)

    "The Manx taillessness is caused by a mutation that probably originated among the island’s native shorthair cat population and, because it is a dominat gene, spread to the other cats on the island. Although the original island cats were shorthairs, the longhair gene was undoubtedly introduced during the long rule of the Vikings, when the the longhaired beauties that are the ancestors of today’s Norwegian Forest Cats left the Viking ships and comingled with the native cats. The Manx cat is the working cat on the Isle of Man and, as such, has a strong constitution, great intelligence, and a personality that is active yet not hyperactive."

      I had a wonderful Manx kitty in my youth. His name was Sneakers, reason being he had 6 toes on every paw. His Mother has 6 in the front, 7 in the back. His “tail” was a bump and then it curled like a pig. Once he got it caught on a lamp wire and his behind just hung there until I rescued him. He had longer hind legs also. I lived at a popular beach town, and he would go over to the “Surf Side” Hotel, ( curious cat) and I was always going after him. One day I couldn’t find him, tourists had stolen him. Broke my heart.....

      What an awful thing to do. I’m sorry that it provoked these memories. Many thanks MSCRYSTALSHIP !.!!.!.!!.!

      No, you didn’t! Believe it or not, I think about my childhood growing up in Avila Beach California a lot. Wouldn’t trade it for anything. We had no money, any of us kids, but we had the beach, a tiny town where we could run amuck without worry. It was like being on vacation all year! Went to a two room school ( like Phil). It was wonderful! Absolutely wonderful!

      My first cat in the US was Keetah, beautiful big Manx. I was stationed at Fort Ord and my wife and I had been at an all night party and we were walking home about 5 am. Out from between two houses wobbled this thin little tailless kitten, dirty, fleas, ear mites, the works. I was about to ETS and no pets were allowed in our apartment so we had to hide him in our shower for a couple of weeks until I got out. Keetah is Thai for guitar. He grew up to be a massive, sweet, beautiful boy. I still miss and often think about him though he has been gone for almost 40 years.
