Adopting A Mewsings Ragdoll
We have kittens
contact me if you are interested.
Anzac and Lily are
looking for a new home
Anzac and Lily are they are 9 and 10
respectively. Their owner is unfortunately unable
to keep them and needs to rehome them. They
would be better off in a home with older or no
children. They have lived together their whole
lives so we would prefer not to separate them.
Their current owner is lovely, and has been working
hard to keep them, but she's 7 months pregnant with
number three and Lily is making herself sick with
stress because she is not coping with living in a
house with two toddlers. Their vet suggested
drugging her or putting her to sleep as the only
options left, hence why we are looking to rehome
If you can give them a loving, safe home
So you've decided to take the plunge,
and welcome a Ragdoll into your life. Firstly - good choice
- secondly, here's some things you need to consider :
WHAT TYPE OF KITTEN DO I WANT ?
Some people don't care so long as it's
a Ragdoll. Other people want a blue colourpoint boy, at a
particular time of the year. It's an individual choice and
we will do our best to accommodate you, but be aware that
you may have to wait for specific colours and patterns. Once
you know the colour and pattern you want the next step is
PET OR SHOW ?
Do you simply want a kitten to cuddle
up with on the lounge ? Or do you want to try your hand at
winning a rosette ? This is something you need to decide
BEFORE selecting your kitten. Why ? The standards for
showing cats are strict - depth of eye colour, head shape,
profile and coat markings are all spelt out very clearly -
as the aim is to encourage breeders to aim for the perfect
example of the breed. Cats and kittens that are perfectly
happy and healthy cats but have some small cosmetic flaw -
such as an off-centre mask on a bi-colour - are not destined
for the show bench but instead for a life of luxury as a
treasured furry family member.
We will tell you early on if your cat
is show-marked (meaning that there is no cosmetic faults
that will disqualify your cat from championship
competition). "Show quality' is a term used to capture the
whole package - boning, head type, eye set, coat colour and
conformity, overall proportions of the cat - and this takes
time to develop. Be wary of claims that kittens as young as
6 weeks of age are show stoppers. There are no guarantees at
that age, as they are changing daily. We prefer to evaluate
the kitten over time to make sure that any kittens
designated as "Show Quality" are truly the best examples of
MALE OR FEMALE ?
Entirely up to you. There is no
purrsonality difference between the genders, but boys are
around 20% larger than the girls. If you want a big boofy
cat, a girl is perhaps not your best choice. Kittens that
are desexed of either gender will not spray, so it really
comes down to purr-sonal preference.
About the only time it does matter, is
if you want a Tortie - genetically, torties are only female
cats ( there are occasional sterile tortie males born, but
it’s very rare) and the male equivalent is a red or cream.
You can get red and cream girls – just not tortie boys !
