When I prepare the site for another year, I try to see what posts have been the most popular. Below is a list that made the top 10.

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!
Curt Gehm is a regular commenter in Yahoo! Groups that I follow – after reading some of his comments, I realized that he had some background with the Ragdoll Cat breed and also with Ann Baker, so I asked him for an interview. Instead of my usual send all the questions and get all the answers type of interview – we emailed back and forth over the course of a week. It was a lot of fun – enjoy!
The posting described the cat as a “special needs” cat. I exchanged contact info with the lady and she called me. She advised the cat was a very nervous cat and not very social, and, additionally, was a hermaphrodite.

Abby’s String Theory – Mmmm, string is good. Abby is such a character. She’s the smallest of our three ragdolls, but she has the biggest attitude.
