Seal Mitted Ragdolls are my favorite coloring of Ragdolls. This is probably because this is the coloring that I grew up with and the color of the Ragdoll cat that I knew and loved, Halston:
Then, of course, I got Skittles, a seal mitted Ragdoll that died at two years of age because of FIP.
After Skittles died (I need to get a photo uploaded of Skittles on here), my mom got Rags and Cosby for us. Rags and Cosby shared the same father, but had different mothers.
Cosby died at 10 months of age because of FIP and Rags, as you know, if you read this blog, lived to be 19.5 years old.
When Rags was 15, I talked my mom into getting two kittens – the sole purpose of this was so that I could steal Rags and take him to my house to have him to myself.
It worked and Caymus and Murphy entered our lives.
When Rags died in March 2009, I began to look for Ragdolls – I wanted one related to Rags and I didn’t care about the coloring or pattern, I just wanted a male related to Rags. That’s how I got Trigg. I am a fan of his coloring, but not like I am of the seal mitted color pattern. It was Charlie that met exactly what I was looking for – seal mitted with an hourglass blaze.
