It had been 4 months since I lost my pussy cat that I had for 15 years – Bellamy. My home was empty without feline companionship, I missed my little man. I knew I would have to have a very special pussy cat come in to my life. Which was why I choose the breed Ragdoll. My search began. I googled Ragdolls Sunshine Coast QLD Australia and came up with Cherishme Ragdolls. I then sent Sharon Bailey an email telling her how beautiful her cats are and that one day I hope to own one. I particularly liked ‘Arrow’ a very handsome Blue Bicolor and I wanted one of his kittens. His first litter was all girls, I wanted a boy. Three months later Bombie was born 26th March 2012. He was the only boy in a litter of 5. I had to wait a week to see what colour he was going to be. If he was a blue bicolor he was going to a breeder. Lucky for both of us he turned out to be a cream bicolor. Arrow’s registered name is Cherishme Up and Atom. I always wanted to call my kitten ‘Bomb’. So to get his name I added Atom from Arrow and came up with Atom Bomb.
Two weeks before I was to bring him home my sister in law died unexpectantly. I had to go home and spend time with my family. When I finally got to pick him up I can remember feeling so guilty that I was taking him away from his family. When I got him home he went ‘mmmmm’ then went to sleep. When he woke he started playing and almost 12 months later he is still playing. He loves plastic spoons – carrying them around in his mouth, gets so excited when he finds one. My home is littered with cat toys. It was so hard to get a photo of him when he was little because he never stopped.
Bombie has the most delightful nature. He is such a gentle boy. He has done everything I have asked of him and more. He had even mastered using the human toilet.
I highly recommend Cherishme Ragdolls. Sharon raises the most beautiful kittens. Bombie was so well socialised when I bought him home. I am so lucky to have this lovely little boy in my life. He is cherished.
