If you’ve been a part of this website for any length of time, chances are you know who Rags is.  If not, then you can learn more about Rags on his page.  Rags is the seal mitted Ragdoll that I grew up with.

Ironically, 8 is my favorite number.  Today, the day one of the great loves of my life and one of my true soulmates was born, is the number 8 twice – 8/8.  It is a special day and a special day for this website – Rags is THE REASON this website exists.

Rags passed in March 2009 – but he is always with me, wherever I go, wherever I am.  He is part of my heart and will never leave it.  I still long for his companionship and believe his soul is present when I most need it – he was/is my bandaid man and had an uncanny ability to heal my heart.

Through a few animal communicators, I have been told that Rags plans to come back to me in his next life (which will be during my current life) and I will cherish the day that happens.

So today is about celebrating my Rags’ inspiration for this website.

Bless you all for being here – much gratitude and love from both Rags and me.

    HAPPY 25th BIRTHDAY RAGS!!!!!!!
    To the most special “floppycat” ever. We all love you because your sweet and giving Mom, Jenny, keeps your memory and spirit very much alive through this website every single day.
    Know you watch your Mom every day and proudly give an approving tap of your sweet paw, every time she talks about how much she loves you. She even took the time to let us know about you on your own special page so we appreciate just how extra special you are too. Especially love that video she shared with us of you swimming in the pool. It takes an extra special kitty to do that and to have so much trust and love between the two of you.
    Thank you for giving your Mom the idea to do this website and the blessings it has given to all of us who enjoy and look forward to seeing it every single day. It is the only web place we go to the first thing every day in our household because we know it will always be something positive and enriching. Something so unique and wonderful!
    Rags, we are so grateful to you for this special happy place for kitties and for sharing your special Mom and your sweet brothers, Charlie and Trigg, with us. They devote so much of their lives tirelessly helping others enrich their kitties’ lives every day. What a true blessing all of you are and it all began with you, dear Rags.

    Happy 25th birthday!
    Love,
    Illaria Rose (Illaria), Olivia Grace (Gracie), and Mariposa (Mari)

    Big hugs to you, Jenny, on this very special day!

    Happy Birthday Dear Rags, your memory is well preserved with love, hugs and daily thoughts about what an awesome companion you were while on this earth! I hope you are playing with my many furry babies (Rocky, Sheba, Sparky, Megan & Sweet Sora) in what I like to think is Heaven-like place for all of us! 🙂 <3

    Big hugs and lots of love!

    Patti & Pink Sugar 🙂 <3

      Won’t that be a wonderful day when we get to see them again happy and healthy and waiting to jump into our arms? Yes, that will be Heaven.

      • Patti Johnson says:

        Yes, it will be so wonderful! Animals truly do enrich our lives! I have had so many wonderful dogs and cats in my lifetime but the two best cats I’ve ever had were my Sweet Sora (American Bobtail – Desert Lynx breed) and Miss Pink Sugarbelle! Ragdolls truly are the best breed for me and my sweet hubby. So glad I found out about them and continue to learn so much from Jenny and Floppycat readers! 🙂 <3

    Happy Birthday, Rags – and many more!
    When Fisher left, I was devastated. Then Wart was gone. They were both such a huge part of my life for over 18 years. We had Scooter, our 5 year old, who was adopted to keep Wart company. I wanted her to have a buddy. We agreed to get an all black cat this time, and off we went to the shelter. I was taken by the first kitty I saw, a tuxedo, but I had agreed to get a black cat, so I made myself move on. I was close to a commitment when I realized I was being watched the whole time. I went back to that first little kitten who never took her eyes off me. Our little Alice had a powerful intention. I could not deny her. After we brought her home, I realized she is a combination of Fisher and Wart. If she could yield a bat, she would have bopped me over the head with it. I had no choice.
    So Rags, I am sure you will be back and we will be here to say, “Welcome Home.” Love and hugs from all of us.
