It's time!

Since our last blog, we've collected our "ragdoll starter kit" from all the corners of the Ragdoll world. WindFall from Louisiana, Rummy from Poland, CeCe from Poland, and Penny from Oklahoma. They spend their days playing, lounging, sleeping, eating, and playing some more. Rummy can be found on the pink cactus print chair upstairs or perched at...

FINALLY we were able to register for shows at the beginning of the Summer! This pandemic stuff has put a real damper on my dreams of showing cats. We jumped in and registered for the first two shows within driving distance. First a TICA show in Reno, Nevada, then a TICA show in Pasadena, California. Thank goodness for Anne...

After the torture of bathing, and the longest drive ever, we arrived at our first show in Reno. We met some nice people, we met some not as nice people. We found a great friend in a Bengal breeder named Monique. We set up our benching area, we put on our cute matching shirts, and we loaded the cats into...

The holidays are busy around here and we've been remiss in our blogging. While you haven't been looking, we've identified our entire foundation breeding group. WindFall is settling in beautifully.

She took some time to explain to me that male Ragdolls can take quite a while to mature and...

I'm sure she's too busy and also she's too important to have time for me.". Well, Mom was right. That's right, you heard it here folks, Denise was Right!...

If you haven't known me for very long, you might find it shocking that I want to own and breed show cats. If you've known me just a little while, you know Flirt, the best boyfriend ever. You may know his story; that my husband and I had split, my cat (my grandmother's cat) who had seen me allllll the...

My Mom mentioned months ago that I should be a cat breeder. I was like, "noooo, I can't do that.I'm in rescue.". And then my brain kept chewing. She remembers the little girl who poured over cat books and cat fancier magazines, who wrote book reports not about novels but cat books. She remembers watching my face light up when...
