My Ragdoll Cats – Charlie, Rags and Trigg

| February 12, 2011 | 15 Comments

Often because I talk about so many Ragdoll cats on my blog (especially my mom’s cats, Caymus and Murphy), people are confused what cats are actually mine.  Truth be told, my very first Ragdoll was MINE – his name was Skittles, I got him when I was 8 years old as a gift for my birthday from my grandparents.  Unfortunately, Skittles died at 2 years of age from FIP.  My mom then got two kittens to “replace” Skittles and those cats were our family cats – Rags and Cosby.  Cosby died at 10 months old of FIP as well.  Rags lived to tell the tale.

Rags, was my family’s cat, who I got when I was 10 years old.  He lived until he was 19.5, so until I was 29 years old (I am now 31).  Since I had Rags for so long and because I was the most into him, I ended up claiming him as mine – although he was my family’s cat.  After he died, about 6 months later, I got Charlie and a month later, Trigg in 2009.

Trigg wanted to go on the mantel today – so I cleared it off and when Charlie saw that Trigg was on the mantel, he wanted to be on there too – so it gave me an idea for a post and a photo.

    What a beautiful picture! Your cats are so cooperative.

      Thanks, Dawn. I got pretty excited about it when they cooperated! It’s not always, but usually they do. Charlie definitely understands his purpose as far as Floppycats.com is concerned. I checked out your blog and love the title of it!

    Oh, so beautiful. Rags looks so precious there in the middle.

    What a great picture of your babies. I just love the large picture of Rags between the other two. It must look magnificent up close. That was a great opportunity for a family photo. 🙂

      Lisa, it was too cool how that photo of Rags worked out. My sister gave me a professional photo shoot with Raggies when he was 16 – this was right after he had gone through chemo…his whiskers were extra curly. Glad you like the Valentine’s giveaway – Ducky World who makes Yeowww! is my favorite catnip toy company.

    This is perfect (purrfect?). I have one of my Maisy doing the same with a portrait of Bonnie, her Persian predecessor.

  5. This is a beautiful picture! and lucky you to have been surrounded by so many ragdoll cats your whole life! I am 23 and I am having the first ragdolls of my life (and first cats, as well).

    • Thanks – I love this photo although Charlie and Trigg are very overweight – this is before we got off dry food! Glad your first Ragdolls are also your first cats!
