I found not one, but TWO Ragdoll sisters in southern California. Their human mom had passed away at 86, and they were with a wonderful couple who were fostering them, along with many other cats. Their foster parents personally delivered them to our door in the Santa Barbara, California area last May.
My husband and I adopted our little Ragdoll girls Smoke and Mist in December from Lake Norman Ragdolls (Denver, North Carolina).
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!
My Mom had recently died, and she had always wanted a Ragdoll but never had one. One Sunday afternoon I was missing Mom. I picked up my laptop and Googled Ragdoll Breeders Central Florida.
Ever since I read the first words about this breed, and ever since the very first picture I saw of a ragdoll cat, I knew this was the cat for me. My husband and I went on a road trip to meet the kittens and choose the ones that would be ours.
I started to look at many breeds of cats and discovered the Ragdoll. i has never heard of them before and their look and description seemed almost PURRfect.
Once-upon-a-time there lived a princess named Rebecca. The princess had such a perfect life. She had married a handsome prince named Paul and they lived happily together in their castle in the kingdom of Australia.
In the Fall of 2007, I finally lived in a house where I could have pets and so
I started looking for a cat. I always had short haired cats growing up and so
now I wanted a long haired cat.
When my wife and I got married, I inherited Stormy, a Bombay rescue kitty. We work long hours. Stormy got wiggy, being alone so much. I met a Ragdoll at a local rescue center, but they had some odd rules about being able to come to our home at random, but we had already fallen in love with Ragdolls.
