Facts about Cole

  • Breed: Manx
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Medium
Cole is a very smart little boy. He likes other cats and loves to be held and get lots of attention. Cole was dumped on the edge of a major road in the wee hours of the morning. Luckily a homeowner was still awake, saw the car stop and watched Cole, his siblings and mother all thrown from the car. We are guessing that they were dumped because the kittens were all MANX kittens! They must not have ever seen newborn Manx kittens before and thought something was wrong with the kittens and just tossed them away.

We estimate Cole to have been born about April 20, 2016. He has the cutest little Manx style puff ball instead of a tail, just like a bunny rabbit! We didn't offer Cole at a younger age because of his 'Manx syndrome', which just means that he has problems controlling his butt muscles and is unable to poop normally. The vet assessed his syndrome and listed him as having 'no rectal tone'. Some days he needs a bit more help than others and when he gets clogged he will need to be bathed. If you are an experienced Manx owner and can deal with the Manx syndrome issue, then Cole is ready for a loving home of his own!

Cole is scheduled to begin acupuncture soon to try and encourage his rectal muscles to strengthen so that he will hopefully outgrow the Manx syndrome. Anyone interested in adopting Cole will be required to continue his treatments as long as medically needed.

Cole has tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, has been dewormed, and is up to date with all his shots. He requires a home where he will never be declawed, or allowed to go outside.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a “store front” as all fostering is done in a home environment. To schedule an appointment to visit the cats or kittens, please give us a call at (571) 408-9626.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees vary based on the veterinary care the cat has received prior to adoption. We will do a vet check to make sure the pet(s) you have currently or previously in your home have received adequate and yearly veterinary visits. A lifetime care contract and home visit are part of the adoption process.
