More details about the Manx

Manx: Origins and history

The Isle of Man is a small island located between Ireland and England. The first cats arrived there by boat very early on in the island’s history. 200 or 300 years ago, a mutation occurred in the genome of a Manx cat. Given the isolation of the island and the dominant nature of the gene, the mutation quickly spread from generation to generation without human intervention. Manx are therefore a purely natural breed.
When breeders wanted to control the breed and its characteristics, it was mainly to preserve this unique cat, but also to limit the collateral consequences of the mutation. Despised by some, adored by others, this breed is rare in Europe today.

Manx: Purchase price

Depending on their gender, lineage, type, age, etc., it can cost approximately £100 to buy a Manx. A budget of about £25 / month is needed to provide necessary care for this cat.
