Why breeding Manx?
Because it's therapy. Banz’aï (my French bulldog) and I suddenly found ourselves very alone after living for 7 years with a Belgian Malinois and 1 year with another Belgian Malinois once they were gone.
I felt he was feeling as depressed as I could be so I naturally thought about finding a new little companion for him, but not a dog… I didn't have the. necessary energy to take care of a second dog… But what then? A cat? But I don’t like cats… They are independent, only know you at mealtime and don’t like dogs in general… What to do?
So I started researching the internet about "sticky" or « dog-like » cats. I then came across the Manx and it was obvious! This is the cat for me! He had the behavior of a dog while having the advantages of a cat (no going out in the winter ;-))
While reading a little about him, I realized that the breed was rather rare because the births were complicated.
After taking the time to think about it, I said to myself that I was not only going to provide Banz'aï with a life companion but that at the same time I was going to try to help the breed, on my scale, by starting a small breeding.
At the same time, I hoped to provide people who do not or no longer dare to acquire a dog with a life companion who can provide them with all the love that every human being needs.

Why RoMan’s Cats & Co?

« Ro » stands for Roxane, « Man » stands for Manx (it is also his purebred cat’s code) and « & Co » is because of Banz’aï, my little french bulldog.
There is also a double pun as on one hand, they are my little buddies and on the other hand this breed gives so much love that we could perfectly talk about a romance…

My Manx

My female is « tailed", that is, she has a completely normal length of tail while the male is « rumpy", that is, totally tailless.
They are both purebred, this means they do not have British ancestors (Shorthair or Longhair) in their pedigree. Having both breeders purebred is extremely rare here in Europe...
The breeding of Manx, especially in Europe, is complicated because on one hand, this feline is rare and besides he, unfortunately, has his share of detractors who try to prevent by all means his development because, according to some, it is "an abomination"; a cat without a tail simply should not exist, while for others, his missing tail would cause him multiple suffering. Regarding this last allegation, it is important to point out that there are no studies that have been able to confirm these accusations.
What I can tell you, however, is that my Manx are in great shape!
