Jaska on his 9th Birthday - Dec. 30, 2009

When I created this website over 3 years ago, I seemed to get more responses from people outside the United States than I did within the United States.

That’s what made me realize how big the International Ragdoll Cat lover community actually is.

Then Facebook came about and an even larger community appeared.

I LOVE IT.

Being able to have contact with people all over the world and knowing how they care for their Ragdolls – including what they feed their cats, what vaccines they give, what litter they like, etc. has been an incredible opportunity for us all.

Featured in this post is Jaska, a 10-year old Ragdoll cat  who lives in Finland.  He’s owned by Leena Virtanen, who I met through a Yahoo! Ragdoll cat group.  I am completely obsessed with Jaska – he reminds me of my love, Caymus.  I affectionally call him, “Jaska the Great!”  What a beauty he is.

My relationship with Leena is a perfect example of how the Internet, Facebook and the like have helped connect us all and I hope we continue to take advantage of it.

    Can you send me blog updates via email? Fun to read. I am currently living in Sicily with my husband and I have been looking all over for a Ragdoll close to here. I would ideally like a kitten, but would also consider adopting one. 🙂 I really like the seal mitted darker face, and the chocolate coloring of the cat above, so cute!

    Hi Jenny, we are happy you found such a super sized community of Ragdolls. I love your site so much because I am always reminded of my cat Burt, who may not even have been a Ragdoll mix, but he sure had a lot of the characteristics.

    Olivia is like older than that cat in Finland, she is 18 years old and she had a kitten like attitude. I will be lost without her snuggling my chest in the night during the morning hours. She will be around til I am still alive. Look at my long tailed gold fish named Honey Dew. It lasted 23 years. I put my aquarium away so I won’t want a new fish. Olivia is my guardian pet. She is sleeping on her window cat bed that I have stuck to the window. She eat my ice cream cones when I gave it to her. I am dumb to eat my ice cream cone with my Ragdoll, isn’t that right Jenny?
