Briggs – Ragdoll of the Week

Growing up, I’ve always had cats with pointed coloring.  My first purebred cat was Sadie, a tortie point Himalayan, who was my soul mate.  Unfortunately, she passed away at only 2 ½ years old from complications of a colon resection surgery necessary from swallowing a foreign body.  The loss of Sadie was absolutely devastating.  But, I knew I wanted to have another cat and that two would probably be best for them.

My search for a cat began.  I remembered looking at Ragdoll catsover 10 years ago.  After reading a little about them, I decided that was the breed I wanted.  I found a breeder relatively close to me.  As luck would have it, she anticipated having kittens at the first of the year.  I specifically asked for a

seal mitted kitten and another kitten.  I just wasn’t sure what other pattern, etc.  Briggs was born on January 4, 2011.  He and his brother, Mitt, were adopted on March 5, 2011, and have been a joy each and every day.

While on my search for breeders, I found the name Briggs on a different breeder’s website who had adopted her male stud from the same cattery I got my boys from.  Briggs is one of the sweetest natured cats I’ve ever known.  He is playful, cuddly, funny, and outgoing.  There isn’t an adult he doesn’t want to come out to greet and “check out”.

Briggs enjoys playing with all kinds of things that are not necessarily “cat toys”.  He loves playing with Q-Tips (which he sneaks to get as often as he can).  He also enjoys playing with wadded aluminum foil balls, drinking straws, and chasing Mitt through the house.

Briggs also loves to eat.  He LOVES canned cat food that he has two times a day.

Briggs and Mitt are the best of friends.  They are often found close to each other, whether they are looking out of the window, sleeping, or bathing each other.  I couldn’t imagine a day without my sweet Briggs.  I know that he and I were meant to be together.  He is an angel!

  1. Hahahaha! Your Briggs is JUST like my Mooshu! From the straws & aluminum foil right down to the stealing of my Q-tips! I save a fortune on “cat toys”! He & Mitt are both gorgeous! Thank you for sharing him (them) with us! Meooooow!

  2. Both of your boys are so beautiful and know they bring you such joy! Thanks so much for sharing your story about Sadie. Very sorry she is gone, but she is looking down at you and smiling now since you are happy once again.

  3. Beautiful boys I love the photo of Briggs with the foil ball over the water bowl – ready to add a second one. 🙂 It’s so nice when they love each other…and you. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy!
