Django – Ragdoll of the Week

Django - a Blue Lynx Mitted Ragdoll Kitten

I first began researching Ragdolls over a year ago and really thought I had found the breed for me and my family.  I wanted to meet one in person however to make sure and went to a cat show last year and fell in love with them!  I knew that our next family member would be a Ragdoll and that in a couple of years, when my twin daughters were older, we would adopt one.  Then this past spring we lost our 13 year old greyhound and I realized after she was gone how sad it was not to have a pet in our home.  We never had a cat with her because she was not a “cat safe” greyhound and my husband is not a “cat person” – however since our adoption of Django, he is definitely becoming more open minded!



So I began my search for a Ragdoll.  At first I loved the blue bi-color pattern and wanted a female but when I contacted a breeder she said she had a blue lynx mitted male available. I quickly looked up all the pictures I could find on the Internet of blue lynx mitted Ragdoll cats and kittens and decided that this was the color pattern I loved!  Of course when I went to meet him for the first time at seven weeks old there was no way he wasn’t coming back home with me in a few weeks!  Django’s breeder is Barbara McKee of Hemlock Trails in CT.



Django, who is named after Django Reinhardt (a jazz guitarist from the 1920’s) is almost four months old now. He has been a wonderful addition to our family.  Some of Django’s favorite activities are sleeping with our shoes on the mat near the front door, playing with his Cat Dancer toy and being carried around the house cradled in our arms like a baby.  He also loves to eat and has nearly tripled in size since we brought him home 6 weeks ago. He is so cuddly and playful and always right there in the room with us – all of the characteristics that I wanted in a cat.  He has adjusted to life with toddlers amazingly well and I think that it is awesome that my girls get to grow up with such a beautiful animal and friend.

    I am a fan of the blue lynx mitted pattern in Ragdolls as well! Sounds like both your family and Django found the perfect match ^^

    Congratulations on the addition of a Ragdoll to your family. I’m sure Django will further endear your husband to the feline kind as well as warm everyone’s hearts for years to come!

    Django is so cute! I’ll bet your husband will absolutely love him in no time. My boyfriend was also not a ‘cat person’. He said that he’d never ever live with a cat no matter what. Now he adores my cat and cuddles with him every chance he gets. They’re really the sweetest animals ever. I wish you a long, happy relationship with your adorable little guy.

    I too just got a kitten from Barbara Mcgee at Hemlock Trail’s in Old Lyme,Ct.
    We also purchased a male mitted blue lynx kitty just like yours and we have named him Casey, we have had him since the end of May, we also had two other cat’s a Himalayan named Chloe, a mixed Maine Coone named snoop, well to make a long story short because we are still upset shortly after that we got Casey, Chloe got sick and we had to put her to sleep she was almost 11 years old and we were devistated and the first person I called was Barbara, she is a wonderful person and I am not only so happy that we got our precious Casey from her she has turned into a friend to me, her cats have such wonderful dispositions, I have found that the ragdolls are so affectionate and they look at you as though they know what you are saying to them, I would recommend Mckee’s Cattery to anyone who would like to purchase a ragdoll and Barbara is wonderful and she stands behind her cats, as a matter of fact I am going to purchase another one, my other cat snoop who is 8 yrs. old I was a bit nervous that he would not accept him, but no Casey has even won his heart and lets him hang around his neck as he walks, I am trying to get a video of this before he gets to big because he is growing so fast he is 3 months old and he is going to be neutured this month.
    good luck with Django as much as Casey has helped us heal over Chloe, I would love to post a picture of Casey but I don’t know how too.

    I’m so glad I came upon this site. I spoke with Barbara yesterday. I am planning on getting a ragdoll in the next few months. I feel so much better having read what all of you wrote. I can’t wait to get my very own ragdoll!
