Manx Cat Personality

The Manx is "mellow and even tempered"2. Manx cat personality also covers the Cymric, the long haired Manx. This a playful cat. The Manx likes high vantage points and can get to them with its powerful hindquarters. This is a cat that tends to be loyal to one person and possible a little aloof to others. The Manx, therefore makes an excellent companion to a single person3.

The Manx is intelligent and trainable, they say. They are not particularly vocal and tend to prefer a relationship with one person, confirming the above. Manx cats will have varying tail lengths and the the tail lengths that are described as "stumpies" and "longies" are claimed to make the best companions.1
