Looking for Manx or American Bobtail kitties

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Im not sure if Im posting in the right place or not but.....
Does anyone know where I might find these beautiful creatures?? Ive got a couple of cats (Pooter, Bimbo) and a sweetheart of a Sheltie (Sissy) and an English Budgie.
I used to have a Manx and he was awesome but I cant seem to find anything near the Dallas Fort Worth area at all. Are they getting rare or hard to find now?

Have you tried doing a web search for breeders? Or check CFA, ACFA, TICA websites for breeder info. There are also breed rescue groups too.

American Bobtails are rarer then Manx are.

Yes but they are all 4 hours or so away. Which I guess I will end up driving because I want another one so badly.

Oh and thanks for the reply Golden.

Check out this manx - he's neutered and might be what you'd be interested in:


She also has kittens too - and willing to ship. Click on the link to her website - she's got some gorgeous longhair manx!

Here's a bit of useful (? ) trivia for you...did you know that the american bobtail is registered under the Long Hair speciality breeds under CFA? All the other tailless cats (Manx and Japanese Bobtails) are recorded as a Short Hair breed!

Good luck in your search!

I think cause the American Bobtail was orginally a long hair cat when they accepted them.

The manx/JB's were shorthair originally and then the longhairs were added.

CFA did some goofy changes in LH/SH. They went by "type". The exotic shorthair cat was originally in the SH division; but the type was "persian", so it was sent over to compete with the longhairs, even tho it was shorthair.

Was very weird when you had an exotic shorthair in the finals of a LH specialty class and a longhair manx in a SH speciality class.

I have NO clue why they did what they did - to a novice its totally goofy

Agreed - it is strange to see a full coated Somali getting best SH Ch I understand where its all coming from though...

I would love to own an American Bobtail or a Cymric too!
