I have 3 Ragdolls & it started with Gracie who just turned 2 Dec 19 of this year. She is a Seal/Flame Tortie bicolor & is absolutely the sweetest girl! Her eye color is almost purple, they just glow. She was more of a lap kitty when she was younger but she sleeps with us every night. Sometimes I wake & she’s laying on my shoulder, or my chest, or tucked into my side. She greets me at the door everyday. I bought her from a breeder in VA called Heartnsoulragdolls & yes I would recommend them, very helpful, knowledge, they breed the sweetest Ragdolls & I still email her today sharing stories & pictures.
When Gracie was 6 months old I knew she needed a friend so I contacted Heartnsoulragdolls to find a sister for Gracie. Well when she showed me pictures of the kittens she had I couldn’t decide which one to choose! I was going back & forth between a Blue bicolor who looked like a show kitty & a Seal bicolor that I was sure had attitude & boy was I right! So which did I choose?? BOTH! I brought Gracie home 2 sisters who actually happened to be her cousins. The little Seal bicolor I named Josie & the Blue bicolor I named Annie. Josie was the smallest of all 3, but has grown into the largest at a little over 13.5 lbs. Carolyn my
breeder is amazed at how tiny this girl was to be the biggest now! Josie & Annie are 1 1/2 years old.
Josie follows me from room to room & when she wakes from her nap regardless of where she falls asleep she comes walking out crying & crying just like a baby till she comes to me or flops down close on her back to get her belly rubbed. Josie, I would say is the most attached out of the 3 or maybe just the neediest. Annie my beautiful show kitty is the kitty who is into everything & will knock something over just to watch it drop. She’s actually better now about knocking things off but she will take things & carry them in her mouth, like straws, ink pens, pencils, paper, hair ties. She also has a great personality & so athletic! She can
jump in the air & completely turn around in mid air when she’s playing with her wand toys. Her favorite toy is Da Bird & a toy called GoCat Cat Catcher Teaser Wand with a mouse on the end. When they hear that toy hit the floor they all come running. Play time!!
Josie & Annie are completely bonded. You never see one without the other. They are always together & yes they get a little huffy with each other sometimes.
The 3 of them will race through the house across the coffee table, next to the back of the sofa and can land on the kitchen table. They are so active & so much fun to watch. We have an open concept house we built. The kitchen, dinning & living room are all one room & they make great use of the space!! They also love looking outside. I put their Cat Power Tower in front of a large window & they all spend a lot time lounging on it & sitting on top the spinning thing. It’s amazing how they balance on top of it!
I have lots of kitty hair floating around, sort of like tumble weed I’d say, but I love having them in my life. Regardless of all the work they bring me a lot of joy!!
I became interested in Ragdolls because my Daughter bought one & I fell for the breed. My daughter has a Blue Mitted ragdoll she named Apple who is now 3 yrs old. Gracie, Josie & Annie are my first inside kitty’s I’ve ever had & I’m so glad I do! 🙂
Thank you for letting me share the story of my Ragdolls with you.
