If you look at a Manx cat too quickly, you just might think you saw a rabbit. The stub tail, rounded back and long, sturdy legs all contribute to the bunny-like appearance. In fact, the breed’s likeness to rabbits is so uncanny that some people insist the Manx is a result of breeding a cat with a rabbit. In reality, Manx cats look the way they do because of a genetic mutation.

Here are eight Manx cats posing as bouncy bunnies.

1. This one is dreaming of carrot-shaped catnip.

2. Is this a Manx backside or a bunny backside? This kitty is in full camouflage mode!

3. This Manx kitten is ready to hippity-hop over the pillow.

4. A mid-bound Manx with moxie makes us smile.

5. This Manx kitten literally hops up the steps.

6. Little Bunny Foo-Foo sitting on a little couch.

7. Shhh, you don’t want to startle a bunny cat in the wild.

8. That’s a big bunny hop!

  • my granddaughter lost a little white manx kitten, and is still mourning. Do you ever have any of those? If so, can you contact me and let me know how much and how to get them here in Illinois?

  • A white Manx is the rarest color of this breed, with black and black & white being the most common. You can get a fine Manx cat at your local shelter, but it’s doubtful it will be an all white one.
