Alright so I recently got a Manx, and he has absolutely no tail, like the tiniest little nub and that's it. I come to /an/ with a question because Google is no help. Even though they're born without tails and 'used to it', can it affect their balance? He' about 16-20 weeks old and gallops when he runs (every time he runs) and seems to not be nearly as graceful as cats with tails. And I don't just mean for a kitten, I've had many kittens before and none have ever had balance issues like he does nor did they gallop to run.
So basically, is this normal for a Manx? His name is Ripley by the way.
