You might have read about the Ragdoll Congress – a HUGE cat show in York, Pa, Nov 2,3,4. Ragdolls from all over the world will gather for a 3 day show, information seminars, banquet and friendship.
This is The Dream Team Quilt made by Sharon Shulby of Magnadolz Ragdolls – it is up for auction on the 8th International Ragdoll Congress’ website.
Here’s what Sharon had to say…
“Every Ragdoll on it (72 photos) is a Champion, Double Grand Champion, Triple Grand Champion, Quadruple Grand Champion, Supreme Grand Champion, Regional winner, International winner, Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Outstanding Dam, and/or Outstanding Sire.
Front row center (rows 4,5,6) right in the middle, are the #1+#2 kittens, #1+#2 cats and #1+#2 alters for 2011. The cat on row 5, 4th from the left is Calirags Blue Jean of Cajun Ragdolls, the #1 Ragdoll in the WORLD!!! She is absolutely amazing. Beautiful, sweet and a new Mommy to 7 kittens (including a set of twins!)
The cat below her is Lovestory’s Living The Life of Reilly. The #1 alter in 2010. Unfortunately, Reilly went to Rainbow Bridge at about 2 yrs old.
While, the auction for the quilt for Ragdoll Congress is over, the quilt is being donated back and raffle tickets will be sold at Congress in Nov!
Thanks to all of the breeders/owners of these lovely cats!
The quilt is 8 across and 9 down for 72 Champions!
