    Lol well i am proud to be owned by a grey and white Manx named Bob, he was named before he claimed me and he knows his name too well to try and change it. I got Bob when a friends Cat had kittens and he coned me into going and looking at them. Well little Bob was adventurous and kept climbing up my pant leg, the first 4 times i put him back with the other kittens and the 5th time i decided he's going home with me. Here's Bob's usual perch when he's not laying across my shoulders at the computer.

    I love Manx! I've had a couple, their personalities are more like dogs and watch out if you take a bath with them around.. mine always wanted to play in the water.

    Bob looks like a great purrsonality!

    I'm currently catless so thanks for the kitty fix!

    Oh you are gonna be one of the lucky ones!

    I say that cause I have a cat that chose me over 12 years ago. He kept climbing up my pant legs too! I finally chose him cause of his persistance, but I picked his sister too cause she was the loveliest calico you ever saw. Well, she had next to no personality, and sadly passed away at 4 years old, but Max Klinger is the talk of the town!

    Max Klinger (named for his careful way of climbing jeans) loads up into the truck every day (after the dogs are in) and rides around town. He is a focal point at our garden center, with his own fan club. He has more personality than any cat I have ever had the privelage to share my life with!

    Sounds like your Bob is in the Klinger 'cat-agory'! Congratulations!

    They are not common, but they are exceptional! Enjoy!
