Meet Rehomed Ragdoll Cats Ash and Addie – My Sister’s New Ragdoll Cats

My sister is doing a full write-up about them (how they came to be hers, etc), but I shot this video yesterday, so wanted to share them with you.  We have posted a lot about them on Facebook, but I realized yesterday that many readers do not check in on Facebook, so I need to post something on the site!

They are both just over 1 year old.  Ash is a male and is a blue mitted Ragdoll cat, whereas Addie is a female seal bicolor Ragdoll cat.

    Both adorable but I am in love with Addie’s face! What a lovely way to bring them into her life with the time and deep contact with their first home and how lovely that they came together.

    I’m adding this for anyone who finds this in the future (that sounds very time capsule-y doesn’t it?!) and dealing with a bit of a different situation – rescues. I’ve fostered 16 dogs & 2 cats and my current pets were both adult rescues. My biggest advice is to let them lead the way.

    Temper your desire to get all up in their space with cuddles and exclamations of love & adoration. It’s hard but back off and let them get comfortable, acclimate and initiate contact. Most importantly give them the space to become themselves.

    It took Yoda (dog) & Prossimo (cat) each a year to truly settle in and bloom into their confidence. Yoda’s been here 6.5 years and Prossimo nearly 3 but I still see them changing and becoming more and more comfortable with themselves and their space which manifests in different ways. With Yoda it’s how she is with other people and seeking their attention vs hiding from it. With Prossimo it’s his asking to be paid attention to and his willingness to let others initiate it.

    Welcome Addie and Ash to the family! It sounds like a perfect match. Kind of funny about girl cats – before I got Dusty & Stormy (and later Denali) girl cats were all I ever had. But I never knew how wonderful boy cats could be, and though I was looking for a girl when I got Denali, it was ultimately personality that won me over.

    OMG, how gorgeous are Ash and Addie and so wonderful that your sister was able to adopt them — I am so envious! I loved watching the video and look forward to seeing more of Ash and Addie in future YouTube videos, along, of course, with Charlie, Trigg and your Mom’s cats. Interesting that males are supposed to be more affectionate than females. I did not know that was said, but have found it to be true myself, both for my two Ragdolls (Chelsea and Derby, brother and sister) and the many non-Ragdoll cats I have had in my life prior to my raggies. Almost always I have found the males to be much more affectionate and the females rather more reserved. Thanks for the video and that interesting fact. Yay, Ash and Addie — can’t wait to see you again on Floppycats!

    Wonderful video and introduction, Jenny! Such a happy story and a very smooth transition for these two re-homed darlings! I am also in love with sweet Addie’s STUNNING face!! Can’t wait to learn of her many adventures that are sure to delight everyone here at Floppycats. Ash is also a GORGEOUS boy! I think getting to know him will be so much fun and I know that he will soon be another Floppycats Star along with his sister!!! Bless your sister Amy for taking these two wonderful Ragdoll babies and bringing them into her home. And bless the reader who reached out to you for help!

    Big hugs!

    What a beautiful pair of Ragdolls! Wonderful that your sister, Amy, took both of them and is giving them such a great home. They are very blessed kitties to come into your family who has loved Ragdolls for so long.

    I totally agree that male kitties are definitely more cuddly and loveable, BUT the ones I had in the past ALL decided at one time or the other to mark their territory, one of which was my husband’s guitar amplifier. He plugged it in and it blew up! When he took the cover off to see what the problem was, there was cat urine in it! Uh-oh!(He, he, he!) So, HE said no more boy kitties in the house. Had two feral male manx’s and they were the sweetest kitties I have ever known. Once they gave their heart over, there was no turning back. They were such bad-a..s’s outside in the yard, but as soon as I picked them up, they just melted and were so squishable and purry. Maybe SOME day, I can have some sweet boys again!♥♥♥

    Thanks for sharing Amy’s Ash and Addie with us Jenny. Can’t wait to hear their story when Amy gets a chance. ♥♥♥

      Hi Teresa. I understand completely! Male kitties were always my favorites, too. When we lost our last little fellow to liver cancer, my husband proclaimed “No more spraying tomcats!” (Our male cats were all neutered at different ages, but only two of many – Prince Charles who’s here now and Samson who died nine years ago – didn’t spray.) I get oodles of love from our girl kitties aged not quite 2 to almost 18, but I miss my handsome toms. Charles divides his time between our next-door neighbor’s house and ours; he’s actually her cat and just visits us. I hope another Ragdoll boy will waltz into my life someday!
