About a year after Shawn I had my first breeding queen. Abby a seal pointed very bad tempered Birman! We had a couple of litters from her before retiring her as we didn’t like the temperaments she was producing and how cruel she was with her kittens.
My next girl was a blue point ragdoll which are similar in appearance to Birman’s but much more laidback. We went on to breed and show ragdolls for over 15 years and I served on the committee of the Progressive Ragdoll Breed Cat Club as webmaster, co magazine editor and then secretary for a few years. I eventually decided I’d had enough of Ragdoll politics and decided to give up breeding altogether. There was so much bickering between clubs and I didn’t want all this negativity in my life. I just wanted it to be about the cats who have always been the most important thing to me. In all my experience I have never experienced this within any other breed.
We only have one Ragdoll remaining now, Santino who was my last Ragdoll stud cat who was neutered and now lives the life of luxury indoors with his boyfriend Dazz and our other cats.
