Hello, I am Ragdoll Mommy, from my blog Life with Ragdolls.
I have a very beautiful and sweet 5 year old, female Ragdoll cat, her name is Anya. She is a Blue Mitted. She is 100% real Ragdoll, and she has the papers to prove it! Both of her parents are registered with TICA, so is she and her brother Nico.
Anya is a little shy, but it's not from abuse or anything. She just has her own personality, just like everyone else. She dislikes a lot of noise and hates when people come over, as it scares her. She likes to hide under the love seat or someone's bed..... But despite being very shy, Anya is one sweet girl! She follows me around the house and sleeps with me in my bed, she also likes to give me high-5s!
Oh and did I mention that she is leash trained?
Well.... Guess what??? She is!!!
She is one of the smartest cat/animal I have EVER had!
She also knows "Sit" and "come when called" and "leave it" and so on.......
Anya is declawed, I didn't do it. But she has her back claws. She is also an "Indoor" cat only.
Her date of birth is: August, 14th, Thursday, 2008. SHE adopted me on: July, 1, Sunday, 2012. She is pretty much my "dream cat", I was probably going to adopt her in 2011....... However, the answer to that was NO! Okay...... Maybe it wasn't said like that, more like "no".
Anyway..... I am very GRATEFUL that I have both of those wonderful cats! I really cannot imagine my life without them! THANK YOU, sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for my sweet babies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope everyone liked my obsession with my BEAUTIFUL Ragdoll cat, Anya!

Hello, I am Ragdoll Mommy, from my blog Life with Ragdolls.
May I present you my cat Nikki? I don’t know if she is a mixed ragdoll or a mixed Norwegian wood cat, but her character is this of a ragdoll for 100 %!
How did it get her? This was a really strange story! I had 2 old cats and one died, so the other one was very lonely and my friends knew that I used to have 2 or 3 cats, but never got a kitten with long fur. One of my friends, called Peter, is living in a house with garden, it was at the end of August and very hot, so he opened all his windows. A clever pregnant cat must have seen this, looked into his bed-room – oh there is a nice big bed! She suddenly decided to give birth to three kittens there. Peter came home and saw her and it brightened his heart! Three very very small kittens and a beautiful mom! He prepared a box for her with blankets and pillows and the cat decided to stay in his house. He asked me how to feed and keep a cat, I told him all what he had to know, but never thought of taking one of the kittens, but he knew that I was eager to get one out of these 3, a kitten with long fur, twisted 3-coloured fur! I said nothing, I knew that so many other friends wanted to have this kitten, but I also gave him the advice not to give a kitten to a very old person like his mom-in-law, who was just 80. I told him to keep the little ones for at least 10 weeks together with the mother, he did. Now my birthday on Oct. 10th came and he called me and asked me to come to his home, there would be a surprise for me. We went to him with my car, wondering what it could be. When you have read my lines here, you just would know what is was: this 3-coloured fur-ball !!! He elected me to be now the mom of this little girl, he said, I would be the insurance for a good life for this beautiful cat. You can immagine that I was happy! My husband and I went home totally happy, my husband warmed the baby in his hands, I prepared all what a little kitten needs and my husband went to bed – with the cat! He used to sleep now with the cat beside his face every day and I could hear him during the night caring for her, when she meowed, a couple in love! Until today she is daddy’s darling, they love each other deeply. I am the mom and butler, who has to care for the food, her litterbox, wash her cat-plate and play with her, when she wants to play she uses to bring me her favorite toy-mouse in her mouth, after every meal she meows to me and I have to give her some brekkies from my hand, so cute. The cat, called Berenike, uses to sit for hours beside my husband in the evening watching TV together, he is grooming her and she enjoys to be near her dad. I have chosen a name from the old classical time, but she was not a real “Berenike”, childish and playful as she is, so we shortened the long name and called her Nikki.
When she was one year old, my second old cat died and Nikki was that sad, that she did not eat anything, but she was drinking water. I asked the vet what I should do and he told me to take a second cat again, this would help. I went to our local shelter and got home with a black cat, who has given birth to 3 kittens in the shelter. She was 1 and a half year old, but an adult cat, a “mom”. She suddenly recogneized Nikki as a baby and until today she is treating her like a young kitten, I think this happens because Nikki has still the voice of a kitten, so that the black cat is thinking she must be a baby! The black cat does not eat first, she is waiting until “her baby” has eaten!
In August 2013 she was 8 years old, but she still has the behaviour of a baby, she is very childish and playful and I think she never will become an adult cat. We love her! Our friend Peter kept her mom and this cat is still living in his house and garden.
On Youtube please search for my channel gigi101060 to see her, she is there seen (and heard) as a “speaking cat” (with German speech-bubbles)!

Fat cat is in need of a better home. We have had her since birth and love her deeply. In the past couple months or so she has not been getting what she needs form us. Our lives have changed and she is happy but I know she could be much happier with someone who has time for her and could take care of her like she needs. She gets along with kids and dogs. She use to get along with cats as we had her brother until he passed away. She is a ragdoll maine coon mix and is one big girl. She is fixed and is an inside cat only, she has never been outside.

My name is Rachel, I am the owner of 2 wonderful cats named Tootsie and Ari. Due to extenuating circumstances, I am looking for a new home them. It is with a heavy heart that I ask this, I love them both so much. I have recently accepted a job with a heavy travel schedule. In addition, I am struggling with an extra work load of dealing with the passing of my father. I am no longer able to give them the love and care they truly deserve.
They are both females, de-clawed in the front, in good health and fixed. Tootsie is a short hair domestic calico and Ari is a bi-color blue Ragdoll.
Tooties is loving and sweet, however she does need to get comfortable with new people before she will snuggle up. Ari is a typical ragdoll, she loves everyone! She likes her belly rubbed and to brushed. They come as a pair only, I cannot bear the thought of separating them. Please contact me for more information.
My interest with ragdolls began when I went to a cat show and saw how cute and floppy they are.Buddy came from a breeder who had 15 years experience with ragdoll cats.the breeder is called Raggeleda ragdolls PH:92952814.she is highly recommended.I thought of the name buddy because it means friend and the name just seemed to suit his wee little face.He is 7 months old and I first had him at 13 months.His birthday is 12/4/13.he loves playing with his toy mouse that he picks up in his mouth,he has a fascination with the shower and his favourite food is roast chicken,least favourite is dry food.when I give him a bath I blow dry his fur which he also doesn't enjoy.

****ADOPTED**** Ragdoll Rescue Peterborough, Ontario - Frank - Ragdoll Rehoming Peterborough, Ontario
Frank is a beautiful cat. He is very playful and loves to be around his people. He enjoys being outside on his leash and also gets to wander our yard wearing his collar. Frank is neutered, microchipped and TICA registered.
Unfortunately, we need to rehome Frank. We have two large dogs. One enjoys chasing Frank and he is showing signs of stress. He has been pooping where the dogs sleep. We have had to confine him when we are not home and at night. I feel Frank would be happier in a house where he is the only pet, or at least the boss pet.

Misty is an adorable seal mitted purebredRagdoll. She came to me from her breeder exposed to multiple cats but for the past 2 years has been with me alone so we are very attached. I just need to know she will be with someone who will love her & can give her a lot of attention because her transition away from me will be very difficult for her. I will be going into hospital soon & won't be coming out. For me to feel peaceful I need to know she will be safe. When she does feel safe she will be a very easy little cat for her new owner to take care of & will bond as she did with me. She is very clean & has no specific food needs. She likes some wet food twice a day & I always leave dry food & water out for her. She sleeps on or beside my bed & wakes me up in the morning purring beside my face. She truly is like a like a little dog, is at the door when I come in & proceeds to follow me everywhere. Having to part with her & she from me is going to be very upsetting for us both & it will take time & lots of love & care from a patient new owner. I can go peacefully if I know she is safe.

Hi my name is Kittie and yes that really is my name. (My Grandmother nick-named me Kitten when I was born, my real name is Kathleen). Anyway, I rescued 2 kittens from a friend who feeds and takes care of several feral cats around her home. Mom cat is a calico and Dad, as far as we can tell is a big orange ball of fluff – that’s all we could see of him. So in April a litter of 5 kittens was born and Cheryl corralled them on her front porch to make sure that Mom took care of them and ate well. Since my 17 year old cat had passed away last year, I decided it was time for a new family member. I went to visit the kittens and picked out 2 that I really liked – of the 5 kittens, 2 were grey, 1 white, 1 orange and 1 calico. The 2 greys and the white one had darker ears and one of the greys was really fluffy. I chose the 2 greys for myself and thought I’d talk my sister into the white one. Unfortunately, at 6 weeks of age, a coyote got to the kittens and killed the orange one and the short-haired grey one. As Cheryl already had 5 indoor cats, she couldn’t bring in the remaining kittens so I picked up the fluffy grey and white one and brought them home to my place. A week or so later, we trapped the Mom and took her to get her fixed at the same time we took the 3 kittens to get their first shots. (Cheryl ended up keeping the calico kitten).
I named my kittens Shadow (grey) and Lilly (white). (No, my sister did not get the white one – I kept her). They were both girls and Shadow did well for being separated from Mom at so early an age. At first Lilly wasn’t doing well and the Vet said that she might not survive as she did not grow the first 3 weeks that I had them. After weekly visits to the vet for various issues, Lilly finally started to thrive. Then came several more vet visits for spaying and the rest of their shots – so much for “free” kittens.
Shadow has developed into a beautiful Ragdoll kitten with all of the traits and coloring associated with the breed. She is so mellow and loving that she will lie in my arms like a baby and let me tickle her belly for hours. She has to be near me at all times. Her fur is so very silky soft that I often refer to her as my “LoveBunny” and must always kiss and tickle her “bunny paws” before I put her down. Shadow is the perfect picture of a blue colorpoint Ragdoll as you can see by the attached pictures. Lilly has kept her white color with the exception of her ears and tail – they are beige-ish-orange and her fur is that of a short-haired domestic. Lilly has morphed into my demon child. She is very independent and only wants to cuddle on her terms. Even though she is smaller than Shadow, she is the one to start the wrestling matches and games of tag. Both kittens have kept their beautiful blue eyes.
At the age of 4 months, the kittens tumbled off of the dining room table while playing and Shadow broke her hip. (By that time I had removed the lace tablecloth and gave up trying to keep them off of the table – I wasn’t winning that battle anyway). During the midnight trip to the ER, we discovered Shadow needed surgery to repair the growth plate in her hip and the cost of the surgery was going to be $2600. Both my husband and I agonized over that – he is on disability and I am currently unemployed. One of the vets on duty came to talk to us and told us that she volunteers at a clinic in a ‘depressed’ area and would do the surgery there for much cheaper. But she wouldn’t be there until the following Thursday. We had to keep Shadow on pain meds and away from Lilly for almost a week. We kept her closed up in my home office and both my husband and I spent a lot of that next week on the floor of my office cuddling Shadow. She is the most amazing animal. Even in pain and separated from the family, she remained loving. Never once did she bite or scratch at us when we picked her up.
At both the ER and the vet’s that did the surgery, all of the vet techs wanted to keep Shadow. Even though she was in pain, she just lay in their arms and looked up at them with so much trust in her eyes. I really believe that if we had decided that the cost of the surgery was too much and asked her to be put to sleep, the techs would have paid for the surgery themselves. Shadow is now 2 weeks out of surgery and is doing fine; but trying to keep two 4 month old kittens from wrestling and chasing each other all over the house is very trying.

This is my cat Finning, he is a seal mitted ragdoll and is almost 6months old. He was born on March 19th at Lissys Ragdolls in Hannah Alberta Canada. I waited 7 months to get my beloved ragdoll (not including the 8 years I wanted but couldn't have one) and in May 2013 my dreams came true. I wanted a ragdoll because of their loving nature and their full personality. Finn has been nothing but a pure delight to have in my life since the day i got him! He has developed an amazing personality that i can't way enough about. He will sleep on my pillow at night and when my alarm goes off in the morning he will purr and lick my face until i get up to feed him. He will sit on command for treats. He will play for hours on end with my dog and will even chase smaller dogs when they are visiting. Finn is always by my side when i brush my teeth, playing in the water and sitting in the sink. He comes when he's called and is an all around gentlemen. He also loves being outside so i will put his harness and leash on and he hangs out in the backyard with us. Finn has been everything and more that i wanted in a cat - i even catch my "anti-cat" boyfriend talking to Finn and playing with him when he doesn't know i'm watching. Finn's nicknames are Monkey, Monster, and my Handsome Prince.

Looking for a happy home: Loki
Loki, a beautiful neutered male ragdoll, needs a loving one-cat home. He has a sweet personality, good habits (no litterbox issues, uses scratching post, etc.), and loves to eat and play.
Loki is about one year old, but we don’t have his papers or medical records. He’s not much of a lap cat, but loves to stretch out next to people. Loki has always been an indoor cat, and he is happy to play with cat toys or just hang out with the family.
The only trouble with Loki is that he doesn’t get along well with other cats. We took him in early this summer when he couldn’t get along with an older cat at his previous home, but after trying several behavioral interventions, we can’t get him to live peaceably with our other cats. He stalks them, and charges them when he gets a chance. When we took him on vacation without the other felines, he was perfectly happy. I tend to think he would manage with a dog, and he does well with our kids. Because this is the second time he has had to be rehomed, we are considering only adopters without other cats.
Loki appears to be in excellent health. He does have a small bump or callus on his head; the veterinarian said it is not harmful to his health and could be removed if one desired.
I know Loki will make a wonderful companion! I will miss him very much. Adoption fee will be donated to animal charities.

Sisal cat scratching posts are certainly nothing new to the cat loving community, but they've managed to maintain their popularity for generally being of good quality. When you first get a new cat, it's difficult to know what types of textures and materials they prefer. At the same time, you don't want to wait around until you find them scratching at furniture or tearing up paper bags to purchase a fitting cat scratching pole. It's best to take care of the problem before it starts, right?
This is why it's a great idea to start with a cheaper post and test out the material with your cat before you purchase an activity tree. When it comes to furniture made of sisal rope, the Petlinks System Pillar Pawz is a great way to start. The scratcher itself is not very large, only reaching about 18 inches in height, but this is one of the reasons you can purchase it for under $20. Despite its inexpensive cost, this cat scratching tree is rather durable so it's more than worth the money. It also features carpet on the base so that your cat has two different textures to scratch.
The top of the Petlinks System Pillar Pawz comes with a detachable feather toy that is full of catnip. This is wonderful because some cats are a bit aloof when new toys are brought into the home. The catnip will lure them toward the pillar and get them playing with it much more quickly than they would without it.
Cat It toys, designed by Hagen, have quite a bit to offer for those of you who are tired of the standard, boring ol' cat products that are most widely available. Cats, just like humans, rely on novelty to stay interested. If you consistently buy your furry friend the same cardboard scratcher, he's going to stop bothering with it at some point. Then you may catch him scratching up furniture or other valuables, not out of any ill will, but just the desire for some new texture. Here are some Cat It products that are extremely impressive:
- The Cat It Style Cat Scratcher comes in two different shapes, Hourglass and Vase. The curves found on the design of their cat scratching pole are much more interesting than standard straight “up and down” cardboard scratchers. Made using sisal rope blended with corn husk (of the low-shred variety), this scratcher includes a base, making it harder to knock over. On top of that, the pole is hollow in the middle so you can add heavy items for extra stability.
Cat It has a multitude of toys available, from their Play Circuit to their Speed Circuit, which both include balls that zoom through the enclosed tracks of the devices. These balls keep your cat wondering what is going on while he stays curious enough to play for hours. You can purchase extra tracks and balls too. They even have a Catit Design Senses Treat Maze that we've reviewed so we can confirm that they do indeed sell quality cat toys!
Hi we just picked up our new seal point ragdoll boy today he is 12 weeks old. I dont have a name for him yet so looking for some ideas what do you guys think?
We also have a little blue colourpoint ragdoll girl who is 16 weeks old they have just met today and so far it seems to be going well, thanks to the flying frenzy cat toy(da bird) kitties love this. Any siggestions for a name for our boy would be much appreciated thanks
I have the coolest male sealpoint ever. I named him Hemi because when he was very small his purr was loud, like the Hemi engine in some American cars (Dodge, Chrysler). He follows me everywhere and he wails when I leave for work, and greets me at the door when I arrive. I got him from a very nice breeder about 30 minutes north of Philadelphia and she made sure his.transition was okay, although I changed his food after a month. His most curious habit is if you stop petting him and he wasn't ready, he'll either tap your arm or grab your hand with both his paws (no claws) and put it back where it was.
Kitty's Name: Hemi
Mia and Chloe are both wonderful registered Ragdolls. They deserve a home with lots of love and attention. I have a 22 year old cat that does not like other cats and attacks when Mia or Chloe come close. We also have several dogs that love to harass them to no end! As you know, Ragdolls are not big on standing up for themselves!
Both have been spayed and microchipped. Mia is the gray one. She loves to follow everyone around the house and have lots of attention! She is also vocal when tuna is in the area! She doesn't mind other cats or dogs and will greet anyone.
Chloe is the black one. She is a little more stand-offish and takes a little bit to warm up to you. She enjoys being petted and likes to sleep on the bed with you. She also likes to sit in front of windows and get off the ground. Chloe will hide at first when a stranger comes in the house. She doesn't mind other cats and tolerates dogs.

T-Rex is an 11-year-old registered mitted blue point Ragdoll I adopted over a year ago. Unfortunately he has been very unhappy in my small condo and desperately wants more attention and interaction than my work schedule allows. He came from a three-story townhouse where he grew up with a German Shepherd, and I believe that he really misses both the space and the companionship of a dog.
I discovered that T-Rex has Feline Herpes Virus after I adopted him. The disease is only transmittable to other cats, not dogs or humans or other animals, so he needs to be either the only cat or with other FHV+ cat(s). His eyes tear but it is not severe. He is on Z/D allergy cat food and Prednisone to help keep the disease and stomach sensitivities under control.
T-Rex craves attention and will let you brush, body/nail clip, and even bathe him without scratching. He's a big boy at over 16 pounds, which is typical of Ragdolls.
T-Rex needs to be in a home where he will have more attention and companionship. Can you provide that for him? If so, I will provide his bowls, food and water dishes, Z/D food, Predisone allergy prescription, scratching posts, brushes, cat tree, beds, blankets, window perch, toys and extra-large litter box. Small re-homing fee will be donated to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.
