Cat Care – Rag Doll Kitten Called Loxlie

Loxlie

The above picture is Loxlie a 7 week old Ragdoll kitten with her new mum Kaila. I went to Kaila’s Vivacious hair studio this morning for a hair cut and I was told they had a surprise for me. I was excited and what did I find? I found a fabulous new Ragdoll kitten there! Loxlie is a beautiful kitten, nice, soft and playful. He is also the first guest cat featured here at Cat Care. I hope to see many more.

The next surprise was a new German Shepard puppy  named Brandy. Another happy and full of fun Shepard. Brandy’s mum Katie has a real bundle of love there.

There is nothing nicer than starting a morning with kittens and puppies. Yes Cat Care cares about dogs too. The lady in the picture is Chrissy. Katie was busy at picture time.

The Ragdoll Cat

The Ragdoll cat has a relatively new breed dating back to the 1960’s. This cat is a mix of Persian/Angora and Birman or Burmese like cats. The Ragdoll is noted for having a docile, calm, trusting and floppy nature. The Ragdoll is one of the largest domesticated cat breeds with a sturdy body and large frame. These cats come in six different colors. The kittens are born white, have good color at 8-10 weeks and full color at 3-4 years. The Ragdoll has a beautiful look of elegance with coat that feels soft and silky. These kitties are easy going and like being held and enjoy playing. They also like water and might jump in the tub with you.

That’s how December 01, 2017 started and that’s my story for today. Hug a kitty and do something green for the environment. If you would like your kitty featured on the Cat Care website please send a picture with a short bio and don’t forget the name to catinthecradles@gmail.com

Cat Care – Roxanne’s Anniversary

Roxanne

November 30, 2017 is Roxanne’s anniversary. It was one year ago today that I picked her up from down the road where she was going to tossed back into the snow. We think that she was about two years old at the time and that she probably had a litter. She was and is a very friendly cat that adapted to a new home and six other cats with very little difficulty. She definitely was not feral  so I think she was dumped.  After a three day isolation period she went to the vet for vaccinations and examination. She was then introduced to the clowder and life carries on. There were some fights and howling, but we got over that  quickly. Roxy bonded well with the kittens. A couple of weeks after moving in she went into heat. Tenzin was attracted to her and she made herself available. She was spayed soon after.

One year later she now likes to go outside on the leash. When she wants out she goes to her leash and tries to put her head in the loop. Now after going out she wants to come to the office and has now become the second office cat.

I can not imagine this wonderful cat left in the snow for the winter. I am so glad I kept her and she is a fine addition to the family. She is my adventure cat and second office cat. Soxs has to share some office time now.

The world is full of animals left to fend for them selves. This is wrong. My hat goes off to the rescues and individuals that rescue these creatures. Animal abuse is as vile as child abuse. In closing rescue where you can, support or volunteer at a shelter. Donate if possible.

That’s my story for today. Thanks for reading. Hug a kitty and do something green for the environment and please leave a comment.
