Jasmine was born April 7, 2017 in a small cattery in Salem Oregon at floppy kitty Ragdolls run by a nice family.
A cat seemed the logical answer to being lonely in a one bedroom apartment after I became disabled and unemployed. Even so it took me quite some time to find what I wanted.
My fiancée and I found our first Ragdoll, Henri on Craigslist. Back then they just called him “Ragdoll”. He had been living outside, when a family let him into their garage to feed him and give him shelter.
I’ve been a cat person all my life and had three cats at the time I met my husband, Fred, in 1983. He claimed that he really did not care for cats. His opinion quickly changed, and over the years, our cat family grew.
My Doll story starts very sadly; My elderly dad moved down to South West Florida to be near me a few years ago and rescued a beautiful little fur girl from a local shelter; the 1st kitten above!
In 2005, after two months since my husband and I purchased our first cat, Caramel, a short hair tabby, we decided he needed a companion and someone to divert his silly ankle attacking skills.
