Manx cat #1: Bonnag
Bonnag’s owner is Zoe Grundey, a GCCF registered Manx cat breeder who lives in Douglas (Isle of Man), and Bonnag is registered with the GCCF as an active dam. This aspect was attractive from a scientific point of view as it means we will be able to follow her kittens in the future. Zoe’s cattery can be found on Facebook as Triskele Manx Cats, along with many more pictures of Bonnag and her other Manx kitties.
Manx cat #2: ???
To find mutations that are associated just with Manx cats, we need to sequence at least two cats. We haven’t quite reached our fundraising goal for cat #2 yet so please consider donating.
