Huxley – Ragdoll of the Week
Meet Huxley! Huxley is our beautiful Blue Bicolor boy who celebrated his first birthday on January 2, 2012! My husband and I adopted him in November from LuvleeDolls, a small (and amazing!) Ragdoll cattery on Long Island. Huxley is our second Ragdoll from LuvleeDolls and we highly recommend them. They truly love the breed (and every single one of their cats) and they are committed to producing beautiful, healthy cats with the perfect Ragdoll temperament. Our Huxley is a perfect example of their wonderful breeding. He is the sweetest most loyal friend you could ask for. We call him our “Sweet Gentleman.” He is also a wonderful big brother. He is very patient and protective of his little half-brother, Gatsby. Huxley is a great companion. He follows me all over the house. He is curled up right next me as I write this. He loves being rubbed, but also enjoys just being near his brother and human “parents.” He is also a music lover and likes to listen to me sing around the house. Sometimes he even joins in! Huxley is practically perfect in every way and leaves all the hijinx and misbehaving to his baby brother. Huxley’s all time favorite things are:
- Prime Taste Freeze Dried Chicken Treats
- His ‘Great Balls of Fur’ Toy
- Cardboard Boxes
- The Love Glove Grooming Mitt
- Belly Rubs
- His Loyal Luxe Canadian Cabin For Fluffy Critters
- Playing With his Brother
- Cat Dancer Interactive Cat Toy
- Smart Cat Ultimate Scratching Post
- Giving his little brother a bath
- Getting his nails clipped
- Having his teeth brushed
- Loud Noises
Pleasure to meet Mr. Huxley! He is a very beautiful blue bicolor boy. Love to hear how he gives you hugs! Ragdolls are the most amazing cats. : )
What a beautiful tribute to a gorgeous creature! Well done!!
@Bill–loved your note and completely agree. Perhaps you should consider taking a cue from blues artists and adding an adjective to your name, e.g., Bodacious Bill, Dollar Bill, Boise Bill … 🙂
Gatsby’s a good name. I have a ferret name Maximus. And, a deceased ferret named : Little-man. Once you have a really good name for a pet, it’s really tempting to name another one by the same name because you just like the name so much on the animal you love. For instance, my name is Bill. Dry. Bland. Who cares about another “bill.” It’s the last thing anyone wants to see because they come in the mail and you don’t wanna see it.
Compare “Bill” to “James” or “Thomas” or anything with 2 ( two ) real syllables. I am embarrassed anywhere I go to have to say I have a bad first name that nobody wants. I am less attractive to people ( believe it or not ) I am considered less attractive to people because of that 1 syllable or cheap two syllable ( billy ) name.
Say were a woman. Let’s compare the names “Amy” to “Brett.” Who do you think is more attractive ? Brett sounds like a guys name, so what would a girl be doing with that name ? Obviously, you’d expect her to be extremely attractive, well mannered, and head strong.
I guess what I’m saying is people are discriminated against for having bad first names. Bad first names, can cost you a job. A really important job and prestige.
