This another amateur photograph. I chose it because it showed off the lack of tail really well. The Manx has a nice character. As for a number of other cats (Bengal, American Bobtail and more) this breed has dog like behavior on occasions. They are good jumpers and like to jump up and rest on objects such as the back of a chair. Apparently black Manx Cats are rather rare.
The Manx has a quiet voice and they “trill” (like the Maine Coon). In line with “dog-like” behavior they will guard their home and growl when something potentially “hostile” approaches or is in the area.
