Soooo, in case anyone missed my thread from a few month back...my husband left me in November, and I was in pretty dire straits financially and emotionally for awhile. Things have mostly sorted themselves out, I'm down to just a few hundred dollars left to pay off from the legal fees, and I've moved in with my boyfriend. His best friend has a wonderful ragdoll cat who we both adore, and he's been talking about getting a ragdoll of his own for quite awhile. Last month he decided he was ready to actually start looking for a kitten, and I started sending out emails to breeders.
I chatted with a few really lovely breeders, and one who stopped responding to my emails as soon as I asked about health testing (grrr), but the one who stood out to me was Mary from Fur Real Ragdolls. She has been awesome and patient through my many many many questions. She has a litter that was born July 12, and they will be ready to go home in mid October. Right now they are still white, their color should start coming in within the week, and she has promised me pictures at that point, which I'll be delighted to share. There are 3 boys and 3 girls, and we have first pick unless someone contacts Mary wanting a show prospect.
I'm so excited I could just pop! I can't wait to see pictures of Mama and babies next week, and I'm even more excited to meet our new family member and bring them home! There should be a mix of blue and seal babies, mitted and bicolor.
Here is a half-sister (same dad) to the litter, Furreal Reina Star. She was the second best allbreed kitten worldwide for TICA last year!
