Arrival Story:
We saw Maynrys at the shelter when we adopted Kepler. It was her first day in the communal cat room, and she was hissing at everyone. She was so little but had a big enough personality to warn the other kitties away. That day we left with Kepler, but we could not forget Maynrys (then Mabel). The little Manx kept coming back into conversation, and independently various members of our household would check Petfinder to determine if she had been adopted yet. One day, we found Maynrys had been moved to a pet store that works with local shelters, and we visited her there. She was as cute as ever. Finally, her soon-to-be mommy became worried that no one would adopt this wonderful kitty. She called the shelter and discovered that Maynrys had been moved back to the communal cat room. The poor kitty had become stressed at the pet shop and began to pick her fur off her abdomen. After over two months of being adoptable, Maynrys was adopted that very afternoon. She had gone too long with no family - we had to make room for this little girl.

The shelter told us that Maynrys had been brought in as a stray. However, one of the volunteers we spoke with overheard a little girl on a school trip to the shelter say that Maynrys had been her cat but her mother gave the cat away. Being that the records show that Maynrys was brought to the shelter without parasites, clean, and healthy, we wonder if her previous owner dropped her off claiming she was a stray. If she were a stray, we think she wasn't one the streets very long (thank goodness). Maynrys is too new to our household to know everything about her yet. She is very sweet with a live-and-let-live disposition towards our other cats. She loves to follow her daddy around and enjoys rubdowns from him. We think Maynrys is picking him as her person. We hope she will be happy in her new home, so much so we that named her Maynrys, the Manx word for happiness.

My Little Bunny Hop

Mom read today that the bunny hop run that some of us Manx cats do is considered a deficit trait by some cat fanciers in North America. Mom politely says they may have good reasoning for their opinions, but I say have they actually seen me running. My bunny hop run, the movement that may have led to the "cabbit" idea of the centuries gone by, is too darn cute to be considered undesirable. After my tailless state, my hippity-hoppity gait is the next thing people notice about me.


Happy Birthday to Me!

No one knows my real birthday, so my mommy chose this one to celebrate me! I'm about four now and still cute as they come.


Almost A Year

It has been almost a year since my parents adopted me. I have proven not only to be a cute little, round kitty, but also a nice girl. I was marked as a stray at the shelter I lived in the months before my family adopted me. Daddy thought I was the coolest looking cat - small, no tail, tough. I acted very stoic toward the humans who came to look around in the communal cat room, perhaps that's why I waited so long to be adopted. Luckily, my Daddy knew I was the girl for him and I got a new home. It has taken me awhile to make myself comfortable and show my personality. Mom and Dad think I may have been abused and made mistrustful. But Mom and Dad take loving care of me. They take me to the vet for my allergies and give me supplements for my feline herpes. With their love over the past year, I have been able to come out of my stoic shell and I have proven that my cuteness isn't skin deep. :)
