We are a fun family of five. I am a retired wedding photographer, Crossfit junkie and general poop manager of our home. My husband and our three children help too ....sometimes.
Our kittens, momma & pappa cats are part of our family too. All of them are raised in our home around children & our Maltese "Dewey", Yorkie "Buddy" and Pomeranian "Pabu". We also have a Flemish Giant house bunny named "Louie", a bearded dragon named Magic, a ferret or two and a few reptiles. Our yard is Fort Knox so all furries are safe to run around and live the dream. We think it's a perfect place...for our Ragdolls and Russian Blues (see BONUS below)!
We have traditional ragdolls, mink ragdolls, sepia ragdolls, lynx ragdolls. Actually we have a wide variety of colors and patterns.
Ragdolls are amazing, loving cats. Beautiful in temperament as well as looks. I fell in love with my first Ragdoll because of her known "floppy" disposition (especially with young children) and secondly, she was SO dang cute !
We have owned several Ragdolls over the years and their amazing disposition is primarily why we chose to let our two beautiful females have kittens. We think everyone should have "The Ragdoll Experience."
In that we mean, each time friends, family, neighbors share time with our Ragdolls , they always comment that they have the most amazing personality. They will "let you do anything to them". Yes, that means being "hugged" by a 3 year old or stacked into a pile of stuffed animals or sharing dropped food with the dog.
Our Ragdolls have been pushed in strollers, shared time with the lizard in a baby bed, had doll clothes put on them, carried in a bucket. You name it. "They are like dogs" some of our friends have said. They are a dog lovers cat too !
As a BONUS :
We added the rare & regal Russian Blues breed at the end of 2016. Our love for them came from a family member's Russian Blue "Smokey" who lives in NYC. When we visit he always snuggles with us, plays with toys and is beautiful to look at. We have been hugging on him for several years. Finally we decided that we wanted to add Russians to our home and raise them as pets. Thank you Smokey Aliah !
You can see them on our Righteous Blues site.
Both breeds are very similar in many respects. Both are very loving, affectionate, can hang with a busy family, all the other animals and as a bonus they are low shed, low on the allergy scale. They are different in other ways. Ragdolls are long haired, large build, loaf around, eager to meet strangers. Russians are elegant, silky, a bit reserved with strangers but warm up quickly, curious, affectionate with their paws (as in they use their paws to touch you) and give kisses. They love to snuggle under your chin ! Its been fun to see the characteristics of both beloved breeds.
Our Ragdolls & Russians are amazing, loving cats. Beautiful in temperament as well as looks. Can't decide ? Have one of each.
