Well, they tell me that I am a “special needs” cat, because I have mild cerebellar hypoplasia, which simply means I am a bit uncoordinated and sometimes my eyes don’t necessarily follow you when I want to see you. I also do better in a less stressful home. Otherwise, all that is nothing compared to my overall sweetness. So, the question is how did I end up at a shelter in Austin waiting to be rescued by Merlin’s Hope Ragdoll Rescue? Well, it is like this….my previous owners decided they didn’t want me, so they gave me to another couple, who then decided they did not want me. It might make a girl think she was not wanted, but I know better. I am special. I am a lover-girl.

So, what makes me special? Well, I am a cuddler. I love to cuddle with my foster-mom’s sister, I love to give everyone kisses on the ear (my little gift to each visitor), and I love to sleep not beside her but on top of her. When foster-mommy came to get me, no one told her I was special, but on the way home, I made sure she knew. I kept a running dialogue going all the way back from Austin to Ennis. I needed her to know that I was special. So, I talked her into letting me out in the back of her big SUV. Normally, she does not do this, but I begged so much she gave in. I immediately jumped onto a bed back there and took a nap. I am that easy-going.

We got home, and I immediately made myself at home and here I wait for my next new home. Foster mommy will be really picky about who adopts me, because this time I am really determined I will be there forever. If you want more information about me, please contact Merlin’s Hope Ragdoll Rescue at melindahug65 [at] There is some really interesting information about other CH cats.

  1. I don’t understand how anyone could give you up, Shady Lady! You are so precious and sweet! If you weren’t so far away, I would adopt you – I know someone really great will 🙂
