Sweet as Pie, Loves Hugs, Might be a Bunny!

If you are sitting down, Manx for the Memories is in your lap! We need to invent a new word for just how sweet Manx is, because he takes "sweet" to a whole new level. He is a super sweet sweetie pie who literally loves everyone he meets! Are you a human? Then Manx adores you, and will climb into your lap the moment he meets you, if not sooner.

Are you a cat? Then Manx loves you, too! He instantly made best buddies with the adult resident cat in his foster home, as well as any co fosters his mama brings home. They play and have the best time together!

Are you a toy? Or a comfy bed? Yep, Manx has all the love for toys and a comfy place to nap. He particularly loves to play with rainbow balls and spring toys. And then it's time for that comfy bed - or your lap!

And Manx can take all the love he dishes out! He is actually a Manx cat, a tail-free orange tabby boy who is extra cute and fuzzy. Along with being a Manx he was born with Manx Syndrome, which means his spine and spinal nerves didn't develop normally; he needs his human to press gently on his bladder twice a day to "express" it and help him go pee. It is super easy once you get the hang of it, and APA! will show you how!

Manx walks a little bit crooked and hops like a bunny, which doesn't bother him a bit, and takes his Cuteness Level to an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10!

While Manx requires bladder expressions and the occasional bath, he is all-in for the hugs that follow! He may need some extra medical care, which may include a regulated diet; for more information on how to care for Manx, please contact APA!

Caring for an incontinent cat is easier than you may think. Want proof? Check out this video: bit.ly/CatExpressionDemo

Manx doesn't know that he's different than any other cat, and he loves his way through life, leading with his big ol' fuzzy heart. We think that being loved by Manx and bonding with him will create some of the sweetest, most cherished memories of a lifetime!
