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.
