Pandora is a pure-bred, seal-mitted Ragdoll, born February 18, 2003, at a New York breeder. Today she is seven years old. Her story might not be what you expect – but it has a wonderful ending. I promise!
I always wanted a Ragdoll, from the first time I read about them in Cat Fancy magazine over twenty years ago.
This used to be Beret…but not anymore. You see, I’ve just realized she hates that name.
Walter Allen, aka Wally came in to my life around the middle to end of March 2010.
We all know that Ragdolls don’t get their full color until they are 2 or 3 years old. Eve Kupiers, an avid Floppycats.com reader, has shared Snuggler as Ragdoll of the Week (Snuggler will be featured on November 15, 2010).
I first fell in love with the Ragdoll breed in 1998, when I saw a litter of kittens on my boss’s Christmas card from her nephew and niece.
From a very young age, I have simply adored cats… I have so many cherished moments of my Domestic Shorthair Annie, staring up at me with her beautiful eyes, with her loud motor going. And of course those freakishly cold winter nights, when she would curl up in bed and smooch for hours on end.
This is a story about Sneakers, our seal bi-colored Ragdoll kitty with face markings like the mask in Phantom of the Opera.
I first began researching Ragdolls over a year ago and really thought I had found the breed for me and my family.
Sonora was a blue-mitted Ragdoll; that is, until she left to join me later, someday on Rainbow Bridge.
