I recently published a request on our Facebook page, asking if anyone had a Ragdoll cat-focused YouTube channel to please reach out to me. I want to start featuring different YouTube channels that have Ragdoll cats - so readers can learn about them.
Here is our first submission - thanks to Stacey for sending it in! I asked Stacey to send in a 500-word story along with her channel page and her three favorite videos to feature in this post.
I currently have two Ragdolls. One is a Seal Point retired 4 yr old Queen called Rochelle. My other Ragdoll is a 17 month old Seal bi-color Soulmate male called Charlie. I started my channel because of something life changing. My Husband of close to 30 yrs passed away just after our wedding anniversary. A few weeks later I received a call from a breeder asking for Paul (my husband), to let him know his cat was ready to be picked up. I was shocked. He had prearranged this wonderful gift just before he passed, so in a way, I received Rochelle as his final gift to me. She has helped me through the darkest point in my life. She is always there for me and I wanted to share her love with the World.
Shortly after, I thought about getting her a friend, hence Charlie. But it is interesting as it was because of your cats Charlie and Trigg, that I pursued Soulmates. I did a ton of research about her and her cattery, and I knew it was the right thing to do. I initially contacted her expecting to be put on a wait list. She then told me she had a bi color male ready called Charlie. I knew at that moment he was meant to be. He had Paul's nick name, (Good Time Charlie). A few weeks later and he was home.
Paul had wanted for a few years to make YouTube Movies and to find others with the same interest, with the hopes of filming a full length movie. To honour his wishes of making YouTube movies, I started making Adventure videos about Rochelle and Charlie and sharing them online. A year later, I wanted to place my name on Lora's breeding list for a bi-color female. She told me I would have a very long wait. I did not mind, as I wanted another Soulmate kitten. Within a month of me placing a deposit, Lora contacted me regarding 3 kittens she had. The first was little Rosey. I fell in love, and we are now awaiting out 2nd Soulmate kitten. She is a Blue-Bi color. We hope to have her home in July. I had a choice of kittens but I chose her as her name was also personally special. Paul's Mom's Name is Rose, so I knew in my heart, she was also meant to be part of our family. We create fun videos for pure enjoyment and entertainment. If we can help anyone learn a few things, that is also great (Wisteria video). We did not monetize our channel as I wanted to keep it fun and ad free. I can only thank Paul for bringing these wonderful Angels into my life. I hope through our videos we can bring a little smile to our viewers faces.
