    Hi Jenny,
    I purchased your Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide several months ago. It’s a wonderful guide for anyone new to Ragdolls. It might be good if you could include some info on the best/worst food ingredients, etc., and recommend foods that won’t upset a kitten’s stomach. With all the information about cat foods I find it very confusing. Everyone has a different opinion. Then put kitten food into the mix and it really gets crazy. I’m sure your new revised edition of the guide will be a big hit. I certainly loved the first guide.
    Take Care,
    Carol Hobbs

      HI Carol,

      I know what you mean about food – I struggle with it too. The best I can do is say that it’s a personal decision, but I do hope to include a link to Liz Eastwood’s Natural Cat Care Blog where she talks about the best canned cat foods.

    Chapters look very comprehensive. These ideas come to mind:
    Choosing a breeder
    The importance of play, suggested toys
    Choosing a veterinarian
    Dangers of overvaccination
    Naming your kitten
    Communicating with your kitten
    Nutritional values growing kittens need vs. adult cats. More protein/ fat, etc.?
    Is an ‘all life stages’ food equivalent to a ‘kitten’ food? How much is marketing?
    Sources of trustworthy information about your Ragdoll
    Floppycats testimonials ; )
