Tucker Lee – Ragdoll of the Week

Tucker Lee – Ragdoll of the Week

Tucker Lee - Ragdoll of the Week Tucker is a lynx point bicolor Ragdoll. He is 15 months old. We got him from a breeder in Huntington, In, and he has been the best cat I’ve ever had. He loves water, chasing balls, going to ballgames, car rides, and bike rides in my basket. He’s more dog than cat! His disposition is so laid back that we got a new seal point male kitten from South Carolina, and in less than a minute, Tucker was grooming him. Tucker is leash trained and loves the outdoors. Ragdolls, as a breed, are so fantastic!! I never knew til I had one own me…..But if you are a cat lover, or even if you aren’t, you sure will be after you get a Ragdoll.

Tucker Lee - Ragdoll of the WeekTucker does not meow. I have never heard one sound come from him until we got the kitten. Then, if the kitten sounded like he was in distress, Tucker would make a ” mreep, mreep” noise back in his throat and run to the aid of the kitten!

Tucker has been to the ball diamond, the pool, the park, and the lake. Also to Big R, which is like a Lowe’s Hardware and to PetSmart, of course. This just goes to show you that if your cat is leash trained, it can really expand their world. If you start with a leash and harness or collar early on in kittenhood, especially for the super- inquisitive Ragdoll, I find it makes for a much happier kitty.

If you can find a safe way, try to let your Ragdoll ( or any cat) experience the sights and smells of outside. Tucker is never happier than when he is outdoors or on the screened in porch!

Tucker also loves drinking from the faucet, and will run from anywhere in the house if I’m running water or filling the tub. When he was a kitten I fished him out of the tub on more than one occasion. There is a dog pool float that has a protective felt-like covering over it so it can’t be punctured by claws. I put Tucker on the float and float him around our pool. He even lets his tail trail in the water!

You may have experienced this, but my friends do not believe some of the antics Tucker and I get up to until they see pictures. One fun thing we do is called “Tuckers Crop Report”. We live in a farming community, and we take a car ride and Tucker looks out the window at the fields in various stages of growth, and gives his expert opinion. He may or may not wear a cowboy hat WHILE he gives the aforementioned crop report….

I recommend Pride grain free canned food and Royal Canin Ragdoll formula dry kibble. Also dried rabbit and duck treats from Blue Buffalo to keep those pounds off! Tucker is 16 pounds and just right for his age. A happy, healthy inquisitive boy that I’m thrilled to share my life with. Consider toys that make your Ragdoll work and search for treats. They LOVE this! Many thanks to Jenny and Floppycats for the great articles, giveaways and Ragdoll Love!!

    Wow! Tucker is AWESOME! And so HANDSOME! His markings are truly stunning. Lurve the pics and stories about what he lurves to do… So happy that Tucker took to his new sibling right away. That’s so sweet. I also adore that he “meeps.” Tucker is a busy boy with all his activities and crop reporting. Wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing Tucker’s story with all of us! 🙂 <3

    Such a great Cat!!
    You have made up my mind, When I get my kitten I’m going to teach it to use a harness. My only problem is I don’t want it to get fleas or ticks. We live in western Penna. and we have trouble with lymes dease. (sp) It is in the country and people have to be careful little to say their pets. But it sounds wonderful to use a harness and let them in the outside world. It sounds like a happy cat!!

    Tucker is magnificent! His personality matches his physical attributes, BIG. It is obvious how much you love this wonderful guy as you have given him every opportunity to flourish. Enjoy your kitty family and thanks for sharing your wonderful story.

  8. He’s stunning!

    I keep wanting to put Prossimo on a leash – I know he loves the outdoors. He spends lots of time on my balconies and in his previous life he was an outdoor cat. In fact your post has inspired me to make the leash purchase today (somewhere on FloppyCats is a comment thread where I asked someone for a recommendation – I just have to find that!).

    I was not a cat lover until Prossimo and now… let’s just say my house is just barely above the human-to-cat-paraphenalia level of acceptability, it’s been a quick descent!

    I can’t get over the marking of Tucker’s face, they are so distinctive.

      1. @lrunning, yours was the message I was referring to! Thank you – it’s been ordered. Hopefully the whole harness walking thing works for Prossimo, I’m excited to try. Thanks Again!!

        1. Oh good- I hope Prossimo will go for it. Emily took right to it the first time, but I’ve seen other cats fall on their sides like they’ve been shot and not move! I let Emily wear her jacket around the house for several days before going out on the leash. Let me know how it goes! Patience is the key.
