Bella has grown up to be a
lovely young lady one year later. Lovely
disposition, loves to be around us. Easy going -
and the prettiest blue eyes you ever saw.
Hope you are well. Thank
you for this lovely addition to our family.
wanted to let you know how wonderful Ralphie
is doing...he is a fun loving little
man...or should i say BIG man...he is
already 11 pounds lol. I took this pic the
other day and just thought how precious it
was and wanted to share it with you :)
Ralphie and Georgie Best Friends Furrever :)
Take Care, Eileen
Within 1 week Kiska is adjusting quite,
well as you can see.
Lucy the kitten LOVES
Avery, follows her around everywhere. She hasn’t
left Avery’s side since we got home.
She’s had some lunch and
found her litter box. Has yet to use it but she
seems to be weathering the storm quite well, purring
Thanks for everything,
got all your instructions about how to care for Miss
She told me everything
and she would say Barb says......not to let her
outside, not to de claw her etc etc.
I knew all this but I
loved how she took her job of taking care of Miss
Kitty so seriously.
She loves Miss Kitty and
thinks she babysits her when she comes over. I love
it since they are busy together.
We Love Miss Kitty, Thanks
Mia & Ozzy
& Ozzy 1 year later
Had to share a photo from last night!
Mia never goes to bed without goodnight kisses from Ozzy! This one
is priceless !!!
thought I would let you know that our newest kitten is
thriving in his new environment.
He's healthy, strong, and
eats like a horse. We have named him Baron. He and
Truman absolutely adore each other.
In fact, the adoption of
little Baron is probably the best thing we have ever
done for Truman.
He really needed a companion
that would play with him and give him something to focus
on. Baron has filled that role and more.
Thank you again,
I just wanted to share that our little kitten is
We've named him Aristotle and
he is an absolute joy! He endured the car ride home with
nary a meow, just sitting quietly under the watchful eye
of Simon, then explored his new home with curiosity and
He sleeps contentedly
through the night on his berber mat next to Simon's
pillow, has used his litter box without fail, and hasn't
skipped a beat with his appetite.
He loves to race through the
house, play with his toys, and snuggle up close to one
of us at nap time.
We know the great care you take in raising and nurturing
your kittens is the reason Aristotle is such a well
adjusted kitten. All of the "hints and tips" you shared
have been indispensable. Thank you, thank you, thank
All the best,
Just a note to tell you I have a bone to pick
now takes me 2 or 3 times as long to get
anything done. I’m either playing with DeeCee,
watching her play, holding her on my lap,
carrying her around the house or SOMETHING.
And if she falls asleep on my lap, I CAN’T bring
myself to wake her up.
Perhaps you should advise your prospective
Ragdoll kitty people to hire a full time cook,
dish washer, laundress etc. etc. before they
bring the new little princesses home! Best
Regards, Sharon :-)
Every moment with our kitty, Rhett, is a joy. He is well
adjusted and has our hearts.
He has a great "Cat Only"
vet. She shows cats as well and has been my daughters
vet for years.
As you can see from the pic Rhett and I still take time
for Mark Twain:) He follows me from room to room. He's
everything we hoped he would be and loads of personality
Happy New Year
Hi, my name is Regan I am nine years old and love my
cat. We decided to name him Charlie. He is a
playful and very mellow. He was one of my early
Christmas presents or may I add one of my WONDERFUL
Christmas presents. I bet Charlie is one of my most
favorite cats because he loves to just flop around
and also he is so loving, in fact very loving. He is
almost famous, everybody wants to hold him. So
I'm glad he's mine.
I just wanted to give
you an update on Levi and Elsa after our first
two days together...we're in love!! We still
can't believe how sweet, gentle, quiet and
loving they both are. After our terrible
experience with a kitten last year, we were both
a little nervous about what to expect. I can
honestly say that we couldn't be happier with
these two little sweethearts!
You were exactly
right about their temperament and personalities
and the wisdom of having a pair. They were calm
when we picked them up from the cargo terminal,
snoozed on the way home, explored their kitten
room, played, ate a little, and then curled up
in our arms for a rest.
I just can't say
enough about how wonderful they are. My husband
is completely amazed and we can't stop talking
about how happy we are to have found you! My
instinct to contact you after looking at so
many other websites was right on, and we are
thrilled with our new little family members!
Thank you for helping us find these two very
sweet kittens. We'll keep you updated...
Robin & Scott
Last week we celebrated my
1st birthday! My birthday present was a
drinking fountain that runs all the time, so I don’t
have to go begging in the sink anymore! The sink
actually is my favorite place to curl up in if there
is someone in the bathroom.
This summer, the humans took me on this really long
trip in something I’ve learned is called a car, and
I lived in a new house. I got to watch squirrels and
chipmunks outside, and there were a lot of people
who loved me so much! I spent half my time sleeping
under MY rocking chair, and the other half begging
for someone to pat me. The humans always told me how
dangerous it was to sleep under that rocking chair,
but I claimed it, and I tried to get all of my paws
and my tail under different feet if possible.
Now I am back home, after another very long ride in
the car, and I have rediscovered all of my favorite
places to sleep, especially the sink. I am a great
help to my family, helping with the cooking by
sniffing everything to make sure it is good to eat,
and although I even try to taste a lot of the time,
I’m not allowed. I brush my teeth all the time, by
chewing when I don’t have anything in my mouth, kind
of like the human concept of gum. Otherwise, I love
sitting on the printer and watching the humans stare
at this strange screen, and trying to distract them
so that we can play!
I am so happy to be 1!
Thanks again for getting him here and allowing us to be
new parents!! He knows who we are, follows us around
each day and he sits in the kitchen at my feet and talks
with me when he wants his wet food :D so who teaches
who?? LOL I love him.
Abe sits with me when I'm watching TV and it was so
cute..he was stretched out, on his back, I was rubbing
his belly and back feet and he made this noise.
looked at each other and just couldn't help but
laugh...he was dreaming...and thought he was sucking
some milk and made that thut..thut..thut sound as they
Here are the latest pictures of our Precious George. He
seems to be adjusting really well, and our dog is
amazingly good with him. They play all the time, and
when they don’t – they cuddle. It is soooo cute :-). We
love his personality and his little crossed eyes... They
make him so much more special!
Oh, and by the way, thank you so much for training him
to go to the box. He has been going in his box since
the day he got here and has had no accidents so far.
This is amazing because we have a 4,000 SF house! It is
very impressive, especially after my dog's 8 months long
Thank you so much again,
Hello Dear Barbara,
I hope you don't mind but I wanted to share a funny
Idaho story with you. One of Idaho's favorite
activities is to steal things from unsuspecting
individuals and unusual places and then stash them
next to his food dish.
His latest caper involved removing the inserts from
my rubber boots and running around the house with
them before depositing them in his private "treasure
I have absolutely no idea how he even discovered
them since the boots have been in the same
place ever since Idaho joined our family. I've
attached some photos of him in the act but I'm not
sure that they clearly represent the activity.
I also attached a picture of him sleeping in/on my
printer...a newly discovered napping place for him!
I can't even begin to tell you, dear Barbara, how
much joy this little boy has brought us and
continues to deliver day after day. Thank you for
doing the most amazing job imaginable in raising
these precious babies!
Well, we're having the time of our lives!!! Dinah has
adjusted so well and I wanted to let you know that she
is doing great. She and Spooky have become best friends
and they play so cute. He's very gentle with her, but
she's not so gentle with him.
She has adapted to us just like she's been here
forever. We're having a ball. Only one problem, she's
getting spoiled rotten!!!
She's having a great time and so are we. We know you
miss her, just know she's in good hands and she very
happy. We'll keep you informed on everything. Thanks
again and God Bless. Love, Lanny
It has been 6 months now since I was blessed
with Belle & Luna! Here is a current photo of
these two amazing girls!! : )
Luna (my babysitter) follows me everywhere I go
and is the eternal gift of giving love.
Constantly giving and needing loves and pets and
snuggles! She is amazingly loving and loyal!
Belle is extremely loyal herself however she is
a bit more independent than Luna (a bit of a
joker actually) and needs and gives love on HER
time not mine! lol You definitely pegged their
personalities to a tee!
Belle however gets a bit jealous of Luna and her
cuddles and will come over and nudge Luna out of
the way of my petting hand and slither right in
to position of the caresses. Priceless is
the look on Luna's face when she realizes what
Belle just did and she will look up at me with
the most pathetically precious eyes as if she is
saying "Hey mom, you gonna let her do that?" lol
Beyond adorable! : )
At bed time Luna snuggles in to my upper body
and lays her head on my shoulder and looks so
deep in my eyes it's almost like she is looking
in to my soul, Belle likes to snuggle in to my
legs or in the crevice of my back and puts her
paws around me. They both like to take their
paws and very gently caress my face like I do
theirs, amazing gentleness! Belle is a bit more
vocal than Luna.
Belle definitely lets you know when she is not
happy, she does this little chatter thing, looks
up at you and pouts and walks away, will stop
after a couple of steps, look back at you for a
second then put her head down and continue to
walk away. Just like a kid. The both of
them Purr, no change that, both of them have
this motor that gets running when you pet them,
to the point you have to turn up the TV.
Fun to get them both purring at the same time,
it's musical! They are so purrfect! : )
Neither of the girls have ever had an accident
from the day I got them, I have not one scratch
or scuff on any piece of furniture, they show
the utmost respect for their environment and
this was all taught to them before I even
received them! Boy does that say a lot about
their breeder and the environment they were born
and weaned in! You my lady are an amazing "cat
lady" and should be very proud of not just the
exquisite beauty of the felines you produce but
the temperament and manners is unprecedented!
Belle and Luna have changed my life and you are
responsible for this incredible change! I could
never possibly express in words my thanks and
appreciation for what you do but I hope you
realize in your heart your impact on other
people is heaven! : )
I will continue to update you on Belle &
Luna as they reach their adulthood! Luna at 9
months is 14.5 lbs and Belle is 15 lbs, they are
going to be some pretty big girls!
Thank you so much Barbara for my new family!
Lori in Minnesota
I just wanted to let you know Gus is doing
wonderfully, and he's the most amazing kitten! Such
a love-bug, always wanting to be held, cuddled, and
rubbed! Gus is incredibly smart! I could call
'here kitty' until I was blue in the face and he'd
just stare at me, but if I say "come, Gus", he
always comes straight to me, trilling and wanting a
cuddle! And what a floppy boy he is! He often
asks to be held and carried, and becomes such a
soft, relaxed noodle in my arms that I must hold him
carefully so he won't 'slide' from my hands! He's
such a Ragdoll! And what a sweet-talker! From
little chirps to sweet trills, he's constantly
charming me with his soft-spoken chatter.
Gus loves playing 'Peek-A-Boo'! When I go into the
kitchen, he'll peek his adorable face over the sofa
arm - just ears, eyes, and barely his nose showing.
When I say "I see you Gus!" he'll quickly duck, only
to peek over the arm again!
'Aunt Nonni' (my friend Sonya) visited yesterday,
and after a cautious inspection, he charmed his way
into her heart... although at first sight of him,
she was already head-over-heels crazy about him! He
impressed 'Aunt Nonni' when he popped out of his
litter box and wiped his clay-dusty paws on the
toweling around his box!
Each day brings another new and amazing thing, and
while I never think it possible, each day, I love
him more deeply than the day before. I'm doing
everything I can think of to give Gus as much
happiness as he gives me :-) and I do know that so
much of his loving personality is because of you and
the loving way in which he was raised! Thank you,
We love you!
Suzanne & Gus
is quite the little lady, and very curious about
everything. No box is left unexamined!
Her favorite thing to do is make sure we wake up bright
and early for breakfast. If she feels you are trying to
ignore this ... she will come up and tap you until she
gets her way.
She loves to play and treat time rides high on her list
of favorite activities. In a nut shell ... she is
This is Wyatt & Howie who
is just the most WONDERFUL kitty. He is just gorgeous
and is a total buddy.
loves everyone, loves to play fetch, and follows me
everywhere. He now wears a bell.
also remains quite the talker. His favorite word is
chicken which starts a flurry of chatter until he gets
always say chicken over and over in the morning to get
my son out of bed. We call it the Howie alarm.
Thank you for allowing me to adopt this
wonderful member into my family. He is the
sunshine in my life, the reason I wake in the
morning, and come home early at night. He is
always waiting for me at the door when I come
home even if I was only gone long enough to
check the mail or empty the trash. He always
acts as if he hasn't seen me in days. I love
that feeling!!! He keeps me company and I would
have to say sane.
We do so much stuff together, mostly because he
always follows me around the house. I go to the
kitchen and turn around and he is sitting behind
me just looking up as if saying "Is it dinner
time again?" He never lets me out of his sight
for long. When he thinks it is bedtime and I get
up, he runs past me and jumps up on the chair I
keep beside my bed so he can get up there, and
jumps up on my bed and lays on my pillow. His
little motor just a running. I can hear it from
one end of the house to the other.
He is so comfortable here now and he loves to
sprawl out on his back and his legs going every
which way. He is truly an angel in my
eyes, and I thank you for allowing him to be
Thank you very much,
Isabella (Izzy) helped decorate the tree this year. We
decided not to put any breakables on the bottom branches.
Untangling the lights was a bit of a challenge as Isabella
was particularly interested in this procedure. Her help
with the Christmas wrap was not appreciated, but we couldn't
fault her enthusiasm. She loves Christmas and is Jim's
She has brought Jim much joy !
1 YEAR LATER..............
Just thought you might like to know that I celebrated my
first birthday recently. I've grown quite a bit since
you put me on that plane. What an experience that
was...thank heavens I flew first class. I'm weighing in
at about ten pounds now and they say I am a real CATch.
have everybody pretty well shaped up around here. I'm
really quiet most of the time, but when I meow they
jump! I had a little trouble with the lady who comes to
clean every week. She had the gall to mess around with
my litter box and take some of my things. She tried to
make up to me by putting some of my sand back. However,
the next time she came, I was ready for her. I jumped
in my box and stayed there until she moved on. I mean,
REALLY, is nothing sacred anymore?
like to play with mousey. I throw him in the air and if
he complains, I hide him under the throw rug or slide
him under the closet door. I just ignore him until he
learns his lesson, but after awhile I let him
loose. Sometimes as a special treat, I take him up on my
cat tower and toss him over the side.
Well, its about time for my nap. I always answer the
doorbell when it rings and last night was a fright!
Kids coming to the door begging for food. Some were even
dressed up like cats. I couldn't believe my eyes. Have
they no shame?
am enclosing the picture taken on my birthday. Is it
any wonder they call me Purrty Girl?
has been the best we could have asked for! The whole family
loves her, my kids fight over who gets to play with her next.
She loves the toy, Cat Dancer.
a great breeder and our relatives that have seen her want to
take her home.
Thank You for her, hope you like
the pictures and we’ll keep in touch…
Alanna Wolff and Family
is doing so good. the kids absolutely love her, and so does
Lacey to them, she is such a sweetheart and I thank you.
After just a few days, Stella seems to be settling in great.
After a few obligatory hisses at the dogs, she's decided they're
not so bad. In fact, they're pretty soft & cuddly.
Thanks again for the super kitten. She's awesome.
Even though I didn’t know you before we got Leo, I feel as
though I have known you forever! I have looked at dozens of
Ragdoll sites on the internet and just had a feeling come over
me that you were the one! Boy was I right!
Getting our kitten from you has been a pleasure! Michael and I
still talk about all the love and care you put into your
kittens and how meticulously you had everything done for our
Not just basic things like the
paper work but sending him with all the little extra loving
touches, right down to the toys and his baby blanket! And let
me tell you, IT SHOWS!
Leo has been so well adjusted right from day one! It has been
obvious that he came from a loving breeder who truly cares
about doing things right! We are so very in love with our Leo.
He has been fun from the minute we got him! He is so
affectionate, so smart and so sweet! He is a total love!
Everyone warned me he might cry through the first few nights
but they were all wrong. From the very first night he just
laid there and purred! He uses his litter box and scratching
post and gives us no problems at all! The girls love him to
bits and fight over who gets to hold him. Leo just purrs and
lets them pass him back and forth and back and forth. He is
always gentle with them! I can’t believe how beautiful he is.
Everyone who has seen him says he is the prettiest kitten they
have ever seen! I am so thankful to see that there are still
people like you in the world who are doing the best that can
be done at what they do! Michael and I were just saying the
other day, “With Barbara, Ragdoll breeding is something that
she takes very seriously, something that she is passionate
about and is committed to doing the right way.” I know we will
have years of happiness with our Leo and will always be
thankful for you, With love, Lynnette Winn
was expecting a wonderful kitty but Sugar Baby’s so much more
than that!!!! She’s so lovable and sweet, she’s very
smart!, and she’s so much FUN! She really has made
herself at home and it’s just a joy having her here with us.
She’s constantly purring except when she’s sleeping!
problem I foresee is leaving her home alone - maybe
I’ll have to retire (hahaha)!! Actually, I’ll start with
little doses tomorrow afternoon when I go to the grocery
store. I can’t even leave her in a room alone without
her crying for me – as long as she can see me and get to me,
she’s happy as can be! Of course, we’ve been “attached”
all day today! She made big friends everywhere we went
today – my niece’s running camp, my office and a friend’s
office, the vet’s…what fun!!
morning, Larry found her sleeping between his two pillows,
flat as a pancake and purring when he took her out! She
slept thru the night, under the covers, behind my head, on the
nightstand in a little bitty space between some books.
You’ve raised an incredibly special little pet for us…thank
you so much, Barbara.
We were on
your website the other night and our kitten was looking at the
cute pictures of your kittens. She loved pawing at the
little butterflies on the screen. It was so cute I took a
picture of it. She was looking at her new sister to be :)
Thank you so much for letting me adopt Jaspurr! I am so
fortunate to have him and Sadie. I dearly love them
both. Jaspurr, with Sadie close behind him, follows me
everywhere....even to sitting patiently close by while I'm in
the shower, just waiting for me to finish. As a matter
of fact, both Jaspurr and Sadie, together, give the word
"underfoot" a brand new meaning; they are, literally,
I've sat down and meditated for years; now I find that I move more
slowly and consciously in everything I do when at home, being always
aware of each movement so as not to step on either of them. It
takes the three of us to do anything and everything ... even to making
up the bed every morning (where we all sleep!). Our home life is
quiet and peaceful and full of love.
Last night, they were waiting together at the window for me when I
returned home. We three are bonding for life. Never have I
had it so good!!
After dinner, both Sadie and Jaspurr sit on on my lap ... Jaspurr up
close and personal, laying his head on my arm.... Sadie either laying
on my legs or wrapped around my shoulders. I already know this
can't go on forever as they will weigh too much when they're fully
grown, but it's wonderful right now.
Anyway, I rock and they sleep, and we're all
happy. I heard Jaspurr purr last night for the first time and it
touched my soul. I do believe he's happy and has accepted his
new home. He's a very special cat and so very beautiful, too.
Both he and Sadie have adopted me, as I have them, and we're all
happy. Thank you so much.
Mousse has settled in great
and we are just loving him to pieces. He flew home without a single
peep. Used his litter box right away and uses his scratching posts
really well also. He has the most wonderful personality, he lets
the kids carry him everywhere. Loves to chase everything across our
wood floors and slide from one end of the house to the other. He would
have nothing to do with staying in one room for more than a day and quickly
acquainted himself with our whole house and our dog Riley. They became
fast friends, although Riley thinks Mouse is a little to active for his 14
years. But when Mousse is ready to nap Riley always has a spot warmed
up for him. He is incredibly mischievous and jumps into any open
cupboard, purse, suitcase or box and has become quite an escape artist that
we have to watch very closely every time we go outside. I can't begin
to thank you making our family complete again. Mousse almost has as
many toys as the kids! He is also growing so fast!!
Rocky and Jamey. They
are getting along really well. Rocky has adjusted to the family and
walks around like royalty. Guess that's what happens when you treat
him like a King!! Thanks again so much he is a huge asset to our
