*Shameless Plug for Ragdolls*!
I am so excited! The December 2009 issue of Cat Fancy highlights my favorite breed, the Ragdoll.
It is a very good article introducing people to these wonderful animals. And there are some beautiful photos of different Raggies, too!
Here are a few excerpts:
Elegant, beautiful, sophisticated and sensitive all are words that describe the Ragdoll breed. Another? "They are a little klutzy!" says one breeder. In other words, Ragdolls aren't the type to climb curtains or bound athletically to the top of the fridge.
"They're very laid-back, happy-go-lucky cats. They're not the type of breed that will be in your face, on your shoulders, screaming at you for attention, but they want to be in the same room as you... and they'll follow you from room to room."
But that's the Ragdoll for you. Almost all of their characteristics are described as moderate - activity level, body conformation, athleticism, temperament and size. There is one exception: their enormous capacity to love. The affection they feel for their companions is second to none. Ragdolls crave friendship and relish the opportunity to return the favor.
"They're very people-oriented."
Once smitten with a Ragdoll, fans say it's hard to imagine another type of cat.
So true. That's my precious Boo, all over!
