I am a big animal person but never thought I would fall so in love. About a year in and half ago I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. When I was out a Sloan Kettering one of my nurses was talking about how she bought a Ragdoll for her daughter. Much to my surprise it was a cat not a doll. At that time I was looking for a Siamese but my search switched gears quickly. Our first Ragdoll, Nikko came home with us on January 30, 2011.  After a month I realized that Nikko needed a friend, so I started the hunt again.

This time I wanted to do even more research on the breed. I was looking at Google images to see the different markings

and colors of the breed and came across a pic of a kitten I fell in love with. I was even more excited that when I went to the website that this kitten was available and it was from an incredible breeder in Massachusetts, Blue Gem Ragdolls.  On my birthday in May 2011, my kids and my husband all chipped so this new munchkin could be mine. So on June 6, 2011 after a ferry ride and a long drive Enzo was home. After a few hours of being in his new home, he was best friends with his new brother. I call them the Dynamic Duo.

Picking a name is always a family collaboration, but this time I left the name picking to my husband. He is not a big animal person and has allergies to the animals but knows how much I love them and always puts that first. He is a wonderful and amazing man. He is however a big car person and named him “Enzo” our Ferrari of Ragdolls. We laugh because when Enzo runs through the house he drifts around the corners like a race car.

Enzo fits all those text book descriptions of a Ragdoll. He is such a mellow boy. He loves to lay right with you or is at your feet meowing wanting to be picked up and held. He definitely is the baby, a very big baby. Weighing in at 16lbs at 1 year old. He does love to get a bit crazy with his brother causing all sorts of trouble. I love my 2 boys and now understand why every person that had a Ragdoll said, “Once you have a Ragdoll you can’t just stop at one”. For me they are the gift that keeps on giving and they bring me so much joy!

    Hi,
    Enzo and Nikko are absolutely gorgeous! They both have such beautiful and magnificent coats. Know what you mean about them finding trouble – today my Grace (see Ragdoll Kitten of the Month), almost disappeared in the AC duct system!!! Caught her just in time. Thank you for sharing your story and hope you are feeling much better. Know that they must be making you smile a lot and that is very good healing.
