Miniature Manx Cats

The Manx Cat originated on the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea between Scotland and Ireland. They are an old breed with many fables about their origins dating back two to three hundred years ago. The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) has recognized this breed since the 1920’s.

Learn About Miniature Manx Cats

The Manx breed is known for its taillessness. The Manx gene actually restricts the length of the spinal column, the tail representing one third the length of the spine. They can be born with a stub anywhere from one to two joints on up to half a tail with some even boasting a full length tail. When viewed from any angle, the Manx should appear round. The body will be high in the hindquarters with the back legs much longer than the forelegs, causing the rump to be higher than the front shoulders. The back will form a natural arch when standing. They come in a variety of colors and short and long hair variations. Long hair is called Cymric (Kim-Rick) and is the rarer version.

Manx females make wonderful mothers. Gestation is approximately 63 days. They usually have one to six kittens in a litter. Kittens are weaned between six to eight weeks. Manx live up to 15 years. Here at Tanglewood Farm, we raise a family pet type Miniature Manx Cat. They stand under 10 inches tall and weigh 10 pounds or less.

Manx are extremely intelligent and affectionate. Their personality has often been compared to that of a dog. They like to retrieve, play in water and carry things around in their mouth. They are generally not loud cats. They love giving gentle head bumps and quiet purrs as their preferred methods of communication.

After 20 years of breeding, we have decided to retire our Miniature Manx Cats. 

We no longer raise or sell kittens.
