Ragdoll Cat Making Sounds Whilst Bringing Toys
Pat wrote in, “My 11 year old Ragdoll Zoe has started to bring me her toys and makes a horrible sound. I have praised her like she has brought me a mouse. Why do.you think she has started suddenly doing this ?” I responded telling her that my parents’ cat, Murphy does this. But I asked her if she wanted me to ask on Facebook. She was game.
6 yr old seems bored.
Vinnie wrote in, “We rescued her from my son. Only after his family realized that two of his three sons were allergic to the cat. We have had her for a few years now. She has always been an indoor cat we’d like to keep it that way. We just feel that she’s bored I recently bought her a few toys and she doesn’t seem interested at all and we would like your advice and perhaps some not terribly expensive toys that she actually might be interested in we’d appreciate any help you could give us thank you in advance for your help. Vinnie” I replied: Hi Vinnie, I have posted your inquiry on our Facebook page and there are so
more responses there. She has gone from 3 kids to no kids – so no wonder boredom would happen =). I am glad you guys could take her in, though. These are cat toys we love – that’s my website, so the videos and what not that we have done will be on the individual listings, so you can decipher which ones she might like. You will probably need to engage with her more too – with wand toys, etc. Please let me know if you need further help. Thanks,Jenny
Ragdoll cat ear hematoma
Nancy wrote in, “”I wanted to share with you an incident we had with Baxter. Five weeks ago I was doing his nightly brushing and felt a dime sized bubble in the pinna of his left ear. His vet was able to see him right away and said that it was an ear hematoma more common in dogs, caused by the shaking of their head from trauma, ear mites or infection (he had a mild infection) and thought we had caught it early enough to try letting his body absorb it rather than doing surgery. She advised us that his ear would not stand upright again with either option. He was put on an antibiotic and a low dose steroid. It took almost three weeks to begin to absorb and as it did slowly pulled his ear flap forward. He’s so very sweet natured and those big, round eyes and now wonky ear, make him even more precious to us. Could you ask your followers if anyone else has experienced en ear hematoma? In the picture attached, taken yesterday, you can see how his left ear folds forward.” I posted it on our Facebook page for Nancy:
