Manx Cat Facts in Plain Language — 2 Comments

  1. Great article. I recall my Aunt Betty’s clowder of manx cats. They were all grey and most were rumpies. They were all very large cats, the 15-18 lbs area. The males were nasty-mean cats. However, I always thought it was the environment they were in as opposed to the breed. My Aunt had a raccoon that often attacked the kittens. My mom got one of those kittens and Fluffy was one mean cat. She scared off these huge dogs that roamed my hometown. She was just plain bad to the bone! She hated us all. Still, I would love to have a Manx cat. They seem to latch to one family member and as long as it was me, I’d be happy. 🙂

    With all that said, I see how they could of come via Vikings to the Isle of Man. Look at their head shapes. Reminds me of a Siberian/Maine Coon. I had never heard that they might of arrived there from the Vikings, but it would make a lot of sense.

    • Thanks Dan. I like this cat breed too as it is one of the original breeds. Any breed that started in the late 1800s in England is at the forefront of the cat fancy. The cat fancy started about then.

      I think Flufy had a tough kittenhood and became defensively aggressive but that’s is just a guess.
