  A Manx…

The Manx is a huggable, lovable imp with a silken purr, an almost inaudible meow and a naughty twinkle in its eye. It spends every waking moment investigating its world.

A Manx will gravitate to the center of your home and insist upon being one of the family. It possesses an uncanny ability to adapt itself to the psychological needs of its people. In a home with children who have been taught gentle animal care, the Manx is often found in the children’s playroom, actively supervising the movement of dump trucks and doll carriages.

Characteristics…

This breed is definitely not for anyone who wants a beautiful, feline house ornament. While a Manx can fulfill the beauty requirement, it will never be content to serve as a doorstop or window decoration.

Characteristics of the foundation animals seen in the Manx breed today include a plush double coat; ears that are medium to medium-small in size and are set far to the sides of the head (viewed from behind, the ears resemble the rocker on a cradle); and a roundish head slightly longer than it is wide, with a strong muzzle and chin, a sound, normal bite and prominent cheekbones.

All of these characteristics, combined with large eyes set so the outer corners are higher than the inner corners, give the Manx a look of gentle, serene intelligence. That look, however, disguises the cat’s true mischief-making half. Manx are active, fun-loving cats that are playful well into their later years.”
