Bombie – Ragdoll of the Week

120526 Atom smlCherishme Atom Bomb – ‘Bombie’

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.

Bombie 022Two 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.

He is not much of a lap cat, he is far too busy. He loves going Bomb april 2013 013for walks on his leash in the garden and he even climbs trees.

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.

Hi, I’m Jenny Dean, creator of Floppycats! Ever since my Aunt got the first Ragdoll cat in our family, I have loved the breed. Inspired by my childhood Ragdoll cat, Rags, I created Floppycats to connect, share and inspire other Ragdoll cat lovers around the world,

  1. Love your story. There is nothing like Ragdolls! You have a very beautiful little man. He sounds much like my Amos. He loves outside and does quite well on his leash. They are a very special breed and I am so glad we both found our little boys. I would have a house full if I could! They bond like no other.

    Thanks for sharing your baby with us.

    Hi Teresa
    Thanks for your comments. He started showing interest in going outside, so we sat down and had a talk. If you want to go outside, these are the conditions. I put the harness on and now twice a day I have to take him for a walk. I enjoy it too, it’s nice to get outside.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing your sweet story. Very sorry for your loss of Bellamy and know that it is so hard to have to pick up the pieces of your heart in order to search for another sweet angel. That’s what they are – angels. Bombie is adorable and can tell you love him so much. Love that he gets to go outside on his leash that keeps him safe at the same time. You both sound like you were made for each other and am so glad for you that he became yours.

  4. Hi, I just wanted to say that when you said you were both lucky, you were so right. You sound so happy with this little guy, and he looks at you for a picture with love. He was a little doll when he was a baby, but now he looks like a big beautiful cat. Hope you have many long years with Bombie(such a cute name). I just picked up my bicolor little girl 9 days ago, and I still feel like she misses her family. The breeder had 2 cats that were due around the same time and sure enough, there were 5 born on 3/28 and 6 born on 3/30, so Junipurr,(my kitten) had 10 brothers and sisters to play with. She has settled in pretty good, but she is also going thru her first cold so she has to take 2 antibiotics and ointment for her eyes. She has been a real trooper taking the meds tho.

      Hi Debbi
      Great name Junipurr. I had the same thing with Bombie not long after I bought him home, ? cold. I believed he was just reacting to a different environment where there was different ‘bugs’ (bacteria) and dust. He sneezed a lot. I still gave him the antibiotics but I knew he was going to be fine.
      Enjoy your new baby.

  5. Your Bombie is so cute and “cherishable”!!! In some of the pictures his eyes are blue – in others they look gold. Were the blue eyes his kitten color or did the pictures come out with a different shade?

    My Ragdoll boys were both seal point mitted. Baby Mew, my teenaged girl, is a golden-eyed, long-haired, orange-striped rescue kitty. The texture of her fur and her temperament are very Ragdoll, though, so I believe she had a Raggie mom or dad. She’s small (7 pounds) and a perfect little doll!

    Thanks for telling us Bombie’s story and sharing his pictures 🙂

      Hello Beth
      I think it must be just reflection in the camera. His eyes have been blue since he was born.

      1. I thought it was just a trick of the light – like the “red eye” effect with blue-eyed humans and kitties. Thanks for your reply, Jan-Maree 🙂

  6. What a beautiful name!

    Bombie is so GORGEOUS! I have a special affinity for the Ragdoll Flames (as I absolutely adore the orange & white tabby cats). If we ever get a second Ragdoll, I’d love to get a Flame. (We currently have a wonderful Raggie kitten who is a blue lynx bi-color named Pink Sugar.)

    Sounds like Bombie has it made in your loving home!

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful kitty with us!

      Thank you Patti for your kind words. He is a beautiful colour, unfortunately it does not show in the photos yet. He is desperate for me to play hide and seek with him, it’s good exercise.
