Hii there, I would like to present to you our cute little kitty called Zoë.
She is now exactly from yesterday 2 years in our little family and is a good 2,5 years old. We got her from a breeder from the Netherlands even if we ourselves actually are from Belgium. I don’t know why but I emailed a lot of breeders for info and she spoke the most to me. Was the most friendliest and gave me the most info I wanted. I would definitely recommend her! I still talk to her a lot now even after adopting Zoë from her. She is so sweet and friendly! We are now even on the waiting list for a little friend for our Zoë (probably from the same mom and dad, how cute is that?!!).
When I decided to adopt a Ragdoll cat was actually after I had domesticated rats for a couple of years and was up for something a bit bigger and more vivid and something that should (normally) live a lot longer. Because I live in an apartment, a cat seemed like a good idea. I always liked cats from when I was young, and I like them when they follow you everywhere and talk a lot. The reason why we then choose a Ragdoll is because my boyfriend is more of a dog person and because a Ragdoll seems to be the most doggiest cat of them all we decided to take a Ragdoll cutie into our little family.
Now something more about Zoë. She is a suuuper crazy chatterer that’s for sure. Whenever we get home she will just talk and tell all about her day, even if that was mostly sleeping, because Ragdolls (or ours at least) can be super lazy, haha. The moments we get home, she is so happy she starts running/FLYING around like a crazy person. Hiding behind corners and whenever we pass she jumps up for like a meter or so, good wake-up call in the morning that’s for sure!
The thing she then also likes the most is when we chase her. Hide behind corners or sneak up on her… She just loves it, she will runaway like a cheetah and then start sneaking up on us or call us if we don’t immediately follow her. She’s not only a chatterer but also kind of a stalker. She always wants to be wherever we are. If we are in the bathroom and the door is closed, when you open it she will be in front of it looking pissed that it was closed in front of her, haha. Also whenever you punish her or say something that she shouldn’t do, she will always answer. Quit the character she has, I LOVE it.
Apart from that she is a super sweetie. She loves it to be near us and she is crazed about her new scratching pole (the Paradise XL scratching pole from Zooplus (European brand)), she kneads in the baskets a LOT I think we have it now for 4 months and the basket is almost kneaded into pieces… Another fun thing I had for a while was a BB8 sphero ball that I could control with my smartphone. It’s a nice toy for cats even though it’s quit expensive, she at least liked to chase after it or hunt on it. Oh and she LOVES boxes!!! :’D
Except from the fact that she is sweet, talks a lot, has a lot of toys and fancy scratching poles, she has one ”flaw”, I put it between marks because it’s a flaw for me but definitely not for most of the people.
Even if she loves to be close to us and follow us around. She hates it when I pick her up, cuddle her or hold her close to me or on my lap. Not that she will to anything but she will just whine a lot and look at us very pissed. We keep on force snuggling her hoping once she will give up on disliking it and just accept it, haha. She’s so funny when she is not liking that. Oh and recently we bought ourselves a vaccuum robot from China. This robot spoke chinese in the beginning and I will add a very funny picture from the moment the robot was talking to her… It was hysterical.
Because she is almost 3 years old but still super playful and young of spirit, and also because we work full weeks and she is a lot alone, we are waiting for this second kitten to be born and become a part of our family. I’m so excited and looking forward a lot to see how she will react to this little kitten in our house. Hopefully she will be super happy and play a lot with her! Because at least now she is using us as other cats to play with!
If you want to see all the rascals that Zoë does, you can always follow her on Instagram.
This was my story about our little Zoë! Hope you liked it and liked the photos! And let’s all look forward to her having a friend within half a year at least!
Julie and Zoë
UPDATE! We adopted a second kitty already :), a Neva Masquerade called Zora, introductions are still ongoing but going well, Zoë is between playing and hunting with the little one so we’re getting there! Some pictures of Zora and sometimes with Zoë:
