cats are not just beautiful, but bred to have a sweet, docile
personality. The are especially devoted to
their owners. Each has its own unique personality.
Here at Cathedral Ragdoll Cattery in New Hampshire, we breed for these
special Ragdoll traits to preserve this wonderful cat breed.
Baker developed the first "Ragdoll" cat from a female named
Josephine. This female was supposedly hit by a car, and lay one the
street for two days. She was found injured but alive, then
nursed back to health by a neighbor. According to Ann, Josephine's
kittens born after this accident were very playful loving and relaxed.
She claimed that Ragdolls felt no pain- an obvious myth to any animal
lover. Ann died with a notoriety for the myths she created, but one
thing is certain: she began the breed of some of the most wonderful,
sweet, laid back kitties in the cat world.
cats follow (or LEAD) us around. They are always there at the door to
greet us. When we stroke them, they have the most wonderful rabbit like
fur, and are oh so soft and cuddly! We look into their beautiful blue
eyes (all Ragdoll cats have blue eyes) and are thrilled with their
wonderful, laid back personality. Each one has its own unique
personality, but every one of them is so sweet and special to us.
and his daughter Freya are clowns. PJ loved performing in the show
ring. He is truly a ham, and entertained everyone who would watch. Of
all our cats, he was the most fun to show, followed closely by his
daughter, Poco. Another daughter, Freya inherited his show antics, and
even at eight years old, she loves to hang upside
down on the cat tree, scratching her back claws. Like PJ, she's always watching to
see if you are looking! She finds all real or imagined spiders and
shadows. She's also our "watch cat".
