I first fell in love with the Ragdoll breed in 1998, when I saw a litter of kittens on my boss’s Christmas card from her nephew and niece. I learned that they were breeders of Ragdoll’s and I was smitten. My first Ragdoll was a flamepoint male, who I named, Crimson. Crimson was a gorgeous cat, so loving and could he ever play fetch. He developed a heart condition and I lost him when he was only five years old.
Fast forward to June 2008. We live in the central valley of California, in a rural community of about 21,000. I was familiar with a no kill shelter, The Cat House on the Kings, located in Parlier, CA so I searched on line, curious to see if I would find a kitty to rescue. I was surprised to see this gorgeous, blue eyed female and she was available! It was love at first sight!! How blessed I feel to have her in my life.
My granddaughter named her Rosie, but I have called her Kitty Kitty, Baby Baby from the start and she comes to that name when I call. She knows she was rescued. We believe she is about 4 years old. She is such a social kitty, runs to greet everyone at the door, jumping into their laps for some love, especially scratching her around her neck and ears.
Her favorite toy is a little soft, sponge ball with soccer markings…. an inexpensive toy at Pets Mart. Her favorite place to sleep is in the bathroom sink. Her favorite place to get a drink is also the bathroom sink faucet, crazy and fun.
Lately, she owns any different box that she finds, immediately, that’s her new favorite place to be. She loves to become part of our décor, anywhere she pleases.
I’m so happy to have found you Jennifer, thanks for the opportunity to share.
