Oh yes!! My baby is my profile photo and here’s another of our almost 3 year old blue bicolor girl:
She is one of the best cats I have ever had!! We got her from a reputable breeder whom we found through referrals online, after spending half a year looking for any 1-5 year old “beta personality” FIV- female in city shelters (as a companion for our rescue tabby). After finding our breeder online, we asked her many questions according to guides for finding a reputable ragdoll breeder online. I think I read the floppycats guide and followed advice from ragdoll breeder, Josie (@fjarilflickans on Instagram).
I asked our breeder why get ragdolls from breeders only, and she explained that because the cats have no kill instinct, it’s best to never declaw them, let them outside, or breed them because it would result in cats who were not responsibly bred to avoid health problems since Ragdolls are a relatively young breed. We got our ragdoll as a companion for our lonely scardey cat rescue tabby, and she has charmed us all.
The other day a rabbit made a home in our garden. When I fed it some carrots, our ragdoll indeed had NO kill instinct and didn’t even try to stalk the rabbit I agree, these are wonderful gentle giant cats whose personalities are true to their breed. They are wonderful companions and thrive on lots of attention.
