Cattery Chat

Have you ever seen a weasel having a bad acid trip? I haven't either. But when I watch kittens coming out of anesthesia I think this is the closest I'll ever get. This week, Bacardi's cocktails got spayed and neutered. Normally, I have the whole litter done on the same day but because my vet volunteers for the same...

One of the most frequent comments on my social media pages is the question of cost. The most common message in my inbox is a simple two words, "how much". I get it, we all want to know the cost, it's what gives us permission to dream or is the catalyst for filling a piggy bank. It's both a simple...

Enter the Ragdolls. Now we all know ragdolls are chill, right? Except that the hormone pushes that come with being unaltered can challenge even the coolest demeanor. Sometimes, the ladies are happy and snuggling, then all of a sudden someone is offended and the accusations go flying. Occasionally so does the fur. Some of the ladies get fussy and...

I spent an hour writing this post this
morning as the sun was rising. And then I accidentally deleted it. It’s probably for the best, it was quite a tanget. Here’s the gist:
I have noticed so many lies and rampant deceit among ragdoll breeders lately and it's so disheartening. Adopters aren't just being scammed by people...

I was laying in bed last night under my usual blanket of kitties. My very best bedtime snuggler, JackPot, was under the covers, stretched out along my torso, leg stretched over my chest, paw to my heart, licking my chin with his rough grit tongue. I was thinking of the many facebook posts I see each week and the private...

I have wanted to show cats for as long as I can remember. Finally, FINALLY, the pandemic was going to allow me to realize that dream. shows have continued in many parts of the world and even in this country. But not on the West Coast. No shows for us. The second I saw show listings within a days...

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. He KNOWS he's destined to be king. He has an impeccable sense of smell which he utilizes daily. He falls short on respecting personal boundaries as he...
