Hi there, I’m Binny! I’ve been told by my foster mom and everyone at my vet visits that I’m just about the sweetest kitten ever! Unfortunately this amazing personality was born into a not so perfect body – I was born with Manx syndrome. This means, in addition to having the trademark stubby little tail, I have (and will most likely continue to have) health problems, mainly to do with my gastrointestinal tract. I’ve had two surgeries so far to fix my prolapsed rectum, the last one was only this week so keep your fingers crossed for me that it worked and all my parts stay tucked inside where they should be! Despite some health issues I am such a happy girl, I run and jump and wrestle with all the foster kitten siblings who come through and most of all I love to cuddle with my foster mom!
We’ve had a good talk and decided its best that I remain in the care of SCARS because of my unpredictable health issues that will likely continue to arise due to this syndrome I was born with but that’s just fine with me, foster mom and I get along great and I’m an awesome foster sister to all the other SCARS cats who comes through our house. Right now I’m even helping to teach my very nervous foster sister Colleen that foster mom isn’t so bad – she had a rough start in life with very little human contact so she needs help to trust but lucky for her I’m here to help (and I’m also irresistibly fun so she can’t help but join me when I play with foster mom)!
I’m not sure why people continue to breed Manx cats. While some are healthy, a lot of us end up with serious health issues. Foster mom and I don’t think its worth that risk!
I’m a Sanctuary Animal
What’s a sanctuary animal? Sanctuary animals are permanent wards of SCARS due to medical conditions or behavioural issues and we are not likely to ever find an adoptive family.
SCARS is committed to giving these animals a home and the love, care and attention they deserve! We house them at our two main intake facilities.
We look to businesses to sponsor Sactuary Animals to help us offset the cost of housing them.
