QUESTION: Phyllis you have been raising & showing Manx for how long?
ANSWER: Longer than I care to think about,
but it has been so much fun.
 
QUESTION: I know you live in the North West in Washington State.
Did you get started with the Manx there?
ANSWER: We started small, with Cleomar EmAlia of Faerietail.
 
QUESTION: I see where you were going to school at the same time.
ANSWER: I started the Veterinary Technology Program at Pierce College at the same time.
 
QUESTION: Do you remember your first litter?
ANSWER: Emma gave us a litter of four kittens in my first year of school, and during my second year, went to Georgia for a breeding.
We still have Piper and Hip Hop from that breeding.
 
QUESTION: Did you have time to go to school and show your Manx?
ANSWER: Emma went on to Supreme after being spayed, as did Hip Hop.  Piper is a Quadruple Grand and is now living the life of a retiree.
 
QUESTION: Your facilities are wonderful.
ANSWER: Once I graduated (with honors,)
MMQ: Congratulations, lots of hard work paid off.
PHYLLIS: Yes,  Then I began planning my barn/cattery.
I'm sure the scope of the plan scared the husband!
The cats have a four-room apartment out there,              
with heat, water, small kitchenette and isolation ward.
 
QUESTION:  Your Manx are beautiful, do you have a favorite color?
ANSWER:  I love all the colors, my main goal is to have happy healthy Manx that are great representitives of the Manx Standard.
 
QUESTION:  I see that you have some Silver Tabbies, did you start with them?
ANSWER: We have grown, adding some outcrosses and deciding to focus on a certain color.
Now I have my silver classic tabby male, as well as two black smoke boys to work with toward the silver classic tabbies.
 
QUESTION:  I was so proud of your accomplishments last show season.  Top three Manx in your Region 2.
PHYLLIS:  Thank you, it has been several good years of showing for Faerietail Manx.
