Stubby cat

Stubby cat

When you travel to Asia you, as a big cat fanatic, will notice a few things about the cats as soon as you leave the airport. The cats are rather small compared to your own cat or the cats from Europe in general. Next to that their tails are short, kinked or not present at all. How is this possible?

As always there are many stories and theories about this. But keep on searching long enough or ask around at the locals and you will notice the same thing will be repeated over and over again. All those fairy tales about cut off tails or accidents can be put aside. Of course there are cats among them that are injured because of the crazy traffic around there, but believe it or not the stubbed tail cat is an actual breed! The cats are born this way and it is quite a common breed in countries of South East Asia such as Malaysia and Indonesia.

So worry no longer, there’s no need!
