Cat Breed of the Day: The Cymric

cymric_cat_3

From Vetstreet: The friendly, affectionate Cymric (pronounced kim-rick) is the longhaired variety of the tailless Manx cat. Other than coat length, the two breeds are identical, with a solid body, round head, widely spaced ears and large, round eyes. The thick coat comes in many colors and patterns, including tabby, tortoiseshell and calico. The Cymric is gentle and playful. It’s not unusual to find that he enjoys playing fetch or carrying his toys around. He’s also smart and dexterous, capable of using his paws to get into cabinets or to open doors. Fond of human company, he will carry on a conversation in a sweet trilling voice. Some Cymrics give all their love to a single person while others are affectionate toward the entire family, including children.

If any of you are lucky enough to own a Cymric cat then please send in your pictures to us.  Also, we’d love to hear any great stories you might have.   But for good measure we decided to get some great pictures of Cymric cats for all of you.  Who doesn’t love a good feline gallery here and then right?  Be sure to click “next” beneath each picture to view them all.
