Teddy came to be a part of my life after a long Ragdoll search that began in November 2009.
We got Lilly as a companion for our first Ragdoll, Tyler. Tyler began attacking my legs (in a playful but painful way) every time I went to bed, and then he would meow endlessly and very pitifully, so we decided he needed another companion.
A colleague of mine started a Ragdoll craze at work. I had never heard about the breed until she got her two kittens and started showing us photos and telling us about how special these cats are.

We have always known, since the day we brought her home from our vet’s, that Francie was a “special kind of cat”. She seems to have the disposition, demeanour, and physical charateristics of a Ragdoll, with the exception of her markings. She is mostly black with a white jabot, white mitten paws, and yellow-green eyes. So she’s definitely not a purebred Ragdoll but I’m sure when you see her, you’ll agree she’s a “Rag”.
I actually got my ragdoll from my next door neighbor. The cat was left in her basement by some people who lived there for a short time and just moved out one day. My neighbor didn’t like cats so she gave her to me.When I got her at age two, her name was FEEFEE and she was loaded with fleas. They were so bad you could asee them run across the top of her head! I immediately got her the groomer and we got rid of those nasty fleas.
I always liked cats and have had a yellow plain cat for years but she is not a lap cat. I’m getting older and wanted to have a large lap cat, so I bought a Maine Coon 8 month old female. She is a great cat nice but not a good lap cat. My wife decided for father’s day to get me a Ragdoll, I knew nothing about this until it happened. She found him in the newspaper. Along came little Wally an 8-week old ball of fur.
We decided it was time to add another pet to our family. After loads of research on the internet and in books, my daughter and I decided on the Ragdoll breed. We then had to research local breeders and convince my husband (not too hard when he saw the photo of our baby).
