Inquisitive, intelligent, and affectionate.
The most unmistakable trait of the Manx is the fact that it doesn't have a tail. This is a result of a dominant mutant gene that appeared in the breed due to it's isolation on the Isle of Man.
The degree of taillessness varies and they have been divided into four groups: Rumpies (no tail), Rumpy-riser (a small knob of a tail), Stumpy (a short, moveable tail stump) and Longy (having a tail which is slightly shorter than other cat breeds). Manxs also have longer hind legs than the average cat and they run more like a rabbit. This breed is notoriously difficult to breed because of the Manx gene and their physical difficulties yet they have won a loyal following due to their inquisitive and affectionate personalities.
The Manx has a thick double coat that needs to be brushed regularly as the undercoat will build up over time if neglected.
Manx cats are playful and fun-loving companions that make ideal family pets. Although they love to run and play, they also develop strong bonds with their owners and adore being around humans.

hello,We have a 5 yr old female mini dachshund who in the first 6 mths of having her, cost us $2000 in vet bills as she developed what the vets said was an intolerance to protein. 4 years on, she has had several minor fits, stiffening and glassed eyes and only once had a drooling session. These can vary from 2 weeks apart to 8-9 months apart and we can tell if one is looming as she becomes very clingy in the days leading up to is. She has also developed a 'habit' of licking her front elbows to the point where she has licked all the hair off her legs and chest. She has also regularly got red ears and now a dry spot on her head. we have been to the local vet several times, who diagnosed her with dermatitis, however, between steroids and the other expensive medication she's been on, it has not solved ANY issue at all. We are thinking its more of an anxious trait she has developed and its now habitual as well. we are at a loss as to what direction to take now, without it costing us a bomb, but wanting to solve the issue to create a better lifestyle for her, and for us as her owners. She is predominately an indoors dog, with time spent outside on nice sunny days. very much a snuggle dog and prefers to be hot in temp. I look forward to any suggestion/direction that you may provide to help us solve this issue. Please ask further questions if required. Thank you for your time. Jacqui
