After all of this time I had not considered Annabelle to be a what is thought of as a Cymric Manx.
I knew her fur was different.
But when researching Cymrics I actually saw several calico's who were so similar to her that I was astonished to realize that she would fall into that same category. All the more why it's so hard for me to understand how anyone could owner surrender. Unless of course it was because she does have the usual Manx related problem when you have to do occasional tushie baths. Probably more than you would for a normal kitty. I suppose and I'm sure my friends who are in feline Rescue would say one of the main reasons for owner surrender is bathroom issues. I am just glad I could give her a home, she is far too amazing to think otherwise.
