Enough of Mancat Monday! While I love my brother and will let him post once in awhile whenever I feel like letting him, it is my blog after all. You know, he could get his own blog.
Anyway, from now on Mondays will be called "Manx Monday" because that's what I am. I am a Manx. O.K. officially I am a "Stumpy Manx". Nevertheless, I am a proud Manx kitty.
My mom keeps a really cool book about cats on the little round table between the two couches. You've probably seen the book cuz my brother, Tommy, likes to lie on it and I think there is a picture of him laying on it somewhere on my blog.
The book is called The Legacy of the Cat and it was written by Gloria Stevens who has degrees in biology and psychology and she loves cats (which is probably worth more than 10 degrees). So, in the book she has a section about Manx kitties and she talks about the Manx Temperament which I'll share in a minute. But first my favorite picture of me.
I am Shilgiah the Huntress!
O.K. so Gloria Stevens said in The Legacy of the Cat ..."Once the kittens are past the endangered stage of development, they grow to be strong, healthy adults. The Manx make excellent pets. They do tend to be loyal to only one person and aloof but not unkind to others. They are excellent hunters and enjoy tree climbing. They are quiet, rather reserved cats and are excellent, faithful companions..."
Wow! That's a perfect description on me!
