Manx Cats - TemperamentManx Cats were originally bred to be working cats and these traits can still be seen in this breed. It is still a fierce and dedicated rodent hunter, especially when it lives outdoors. Manx Cats get along well with dogs and other cats, even with home birds. Sometimes they can be aggressive, if they are too jealous to the master. Frankly speaking, Manx Cats don't miss the companionship of other animals since they are people-oriented. Strange dogs are usual targets of attack. Manx Cats enjoy the attention they receive at shows and like meeting new cats and people.
People call the Manx cat the "dog-cat" because of its strong desire to communicate with people, objects retrieving, and burying the toys. They are the cats for dog lovers. They are easily trained to come by name or with a whistle and learn the "no" command. Manx are intelligent enough to outwit the master. Manx Cats love to curl up in their owner's lap, although they can be very protective of their home or territory. If they are highly protective and if they hear an unusual noise or disturbance, they will often growl and even attack.

The Manx has a calm, friendly and affectionate temperament and makes an excellent pet for children and a companion for the whole family. They are very playful. Its voice is very quiet for its size and it pronounces distinct "trills." Manx Cats have extremely strong hindquarters that enable acceleration and quick turns
