I like to send you a picture of "Mutzi" (her "real"name was Rosie). She was my neighbour's Manx. We loved her very much and she was the reason we wanted a Manx. This picture was taken shortly before her death when she was 25!!!
Our neighbours allowed us to give her a final resting place in our backyard.
She was the queen of our street! She lived mostly outside and walked through deep snow. Her "owners" never gave her cat food but rather scraps from the table.
No one could imagine that she lived to such an old age! In this picture she is already very thin and frail but the love in still in her eyes.
