Casper – Ragdoll of the Week
My name is Casper, I’m a 4 year old Ragdoll and live in Durham City in the United Kingdom. I live with my owners and my two brothers Cosmo and Milo who are also Ragdolls. Milo was Ragdoll of the week a few weeks ago. I’m a seal bi colour tabby. My favorite pastime is eating! I would eat all day if I could. I’ve even been to the vets to have this checked out but they say I’ve just got a big appetite. I will eat almost anything, so my owners have to make sure they don’t leave anything out in the kitchen or I will eat it. I even try to steal Cosmo’s food if I get the opportunity, but I would never try to steal Milo’s as he’s almost as bad as me. My owners got me as a little kitten when I was 12 weeks old from a Ragdoll breeder in the North East of England. I’m extremely friendly and have a very loud purr. I’m also constantly on the go much to everyone’s annoying sometimes, which is why I think Cosmo didn’t like me when I first moved in. I think he was use to having the house to himself and didn’t want me constantly in his face wanting to play. We are now good friends though. All 3 of us enjoy playing chasing each other around the house and garden which means John is constantly have to pick up our fur, which he moans about sometimes. I also love to play fetch chasing and returning balls of paper. I especially love it when they throw the ball of paper up the stairs for me to chase, although I do think they do this to tire me out sometimes so I go to sleep. Cosmo and Milo always look at me like I’m crazy when I’m playing fetch.
I also love to stalk the birds and frogs in our garden. I was really proud of myself recently when I managed to capture a pigeon, plucking it out of the air as it was taking off. Unfortunately John was watching from the kitchen window and rushed out in to the garden to rescue it from my paws. I wasn’t very happy as it flew off safely.
I have a beautiful thick coat in the winter months, the only problem is in the Spring/Summer when I suffer from extreme shedding. Even though my owners comb regularly during this period my fur does become matted in places so the matts have to be cut out.
Unfortunately this does mean I do look a bit of a mess until my fur regrows. My brothers don’t suffer so badly with this but the vet says it’s nothing to worry about. Me and Milo love to groom each other but Cosmo prefers to look after himself!|
