The Manx cat is best known for its absent tail. Many Manx have stubs but most are entirely tail-less. It is a naturally occurring spontaneous mutation. Manx are also known as rabbit-like. They have longer back legs so they tend to do the bunny hop, even when they’re just moseying along. Farmers love them because they are terrific mousers. White Manx are rare and sell at the higher end of the price spectrum.
Price Tag: $800–$4,000
Fun Fact: Manx are very dog-like in that they can be taught tricks. They’re bright, playful, and grow very attached to their humans, even following them around from room to room like a loyal pup.
