Unfortunately we lost our seven year old Ragdoll Louie in April 2010. He suffered from a kidney disorder and there was no hope for cure. We were, of course, very sad as he was the second we had had who didn’t grow old.

After a while we began searching for a new Ragdoll and we found LaGotto in Sweden. He was a blue lynx mitted with hourglass blaze and he was absolutely gorgeous.

Unfortunately he has a little white tail tip, so he’s not a show cat. But I was totally in love with the picture I saw from the breeder Unni Fyrpihl so I persuaded my husband to drive all the way from Denmark to Sweden to get this little floppy guy whose

So we bought LaGotto – or Smokie as we call him here – in May 2010 and he is the most wonderful kitty you can imagine. We just love him<3<3<3. I have had many cats during the years, mostly Maine Coons which I was breeding but also two other Ragdolls, but S*Fyrpihls LaGottò alias Smokie is the absolutely best. He’s purring as a machine and he is always ready for fun – he loves to apport things but only black things, for example small black balls with feathers or my daughters hair elastics.

He is now a young handsome guy, 10 month old and weighs almost 5,5 kg (5.5 kgs = 12.12 lbs.). He is awesome and the centre of the entire family. He follows us like a puppy from room to room. We have to be careful where we step, because he does not feel much, if any pain at all, so we have to be very observant. But he is definitely worth taking extra care of. I’m quite sure that our Smokie is the cutest floppycat in Denmark right now!

    Smokey is absolutely gorgeous. So he has a white tail tip. That’s OK. He probably doesn’t want to be a show cat, anyway. 🙂 He’s pretty, white tip tail and all.

    Thank you everybody for your sweet comments. He is actually an adorable cat with so much “ragdoll attitude”<3<3<3
    Once again thank you Unni for breeding this wonderful boy. He is all I wished for. I wish that I could find a lilac lynx mitted ragdoll as well and persuade my husbond to one more Ragdoll:-)
