Manx - Update

Well, here are some pictures of the little Manxie. She is TINY. Unfortunately she also looks pregnant!

She likes following the BMTs (Bubbles, Madness & Trouble) around. They hiss at her when she comes too close, but generally they don't care very much.

She seems curious about me, but stays out of reach. She really wants to be around the cats, but is pretty suspicious of me.

In this picture you can see how tiny she is (compared to Bubbles's butt).

I have contacted my local no-kill shelter and they said they have a 2 month waiting list. I put my name on the list in any case, but I doubt that she is tame enough for them to take her in. And then there is my suspicion that she is pregnant, so I don't really think that is an option.
At the moment I'm feeding her and planning to make a shelter outdoors, because at the moment she is sleeping under a shrub next to the front steps and it was below freezing last night.
So no long-term solution yet.

she is a cutie. i wonder where she came from? there is lots of info on how to build a secure and warm shelter for outdoor cats. one of the bloggers had it on their blog. wish i could remember where. it involved 2 rubbermaid type containers (1 smaller than the other)and cutting a hole in the short side and adding stuff between the two containers as insulation and using pine straw for bedding.

Thank you so much for making her a shelter. My gosh, what a sad situation. I don't even want to get into how I feel about people who don't spay or neuter or care for their animals. My laptop would EXPLODE!

That is wonderful for her to have a shelter. It is a good thing she has you to make some sort of little shelter for her.
