Alpacas & Ragdoll Cats

Pet Cats

These are my own pet cats and are not available for new homes.  Ragdolls are like potato chips, and I can’t have just one!

Angel Baby (Ch. FossMtn Angel Baby)

Angel Baby is the daughter of our long-time stud, Rusty.  She had a few litters, but is now retired as our pet.  She is a beautiful blue bicolor girl who greatly resembles her sire.  She is a bit shy for a Ragdoll, but is very loving to us, though retiring with strangers.

“What are you doing with that camera thing?”

We showed Angel prior to her first litter and she received her Champion title.  But it was very clear she didn’t like showing, but at least we got some good comments from the judges.

Delilah (Beechridge Delilah of FossMtn)

Born in 2007, Delilah is a beauful seal point mitted girl who is now retired from breeding after giving us some wonderful kittens. She is full of energy and still loves to play. She remains with us as our pet, as she gets along well with all the other cats, though she most definitely is the boss-cat of them all.

Nicole (FossMtn Noel Nicole)

Nicole is the daughter of Dorie Jo (now retired and gone to a new home) and Blaze, our retired stud boy.  She is a beautiful blue colorpoint Ragdoll who is a great size like her sire.  As a baby, she had a reaction to Clindamycin tablets which caused an esophageal stricture.  This made it difficult for her to swallow.  After numerous procedures to widen the stricture, she can now easily eat canned food and can also eat small kibble if she eats them a few at a time.  Because of her special feeding needs, we have kept her as our pet.  She is playful and sweet and loves being a ‘big sister’ to the kittens.

Beyonce (pronounced like the singer)

“Did I give you permission to take my picture?”

“Yes, I know I’m beautiful.”

Beyonce was born on 9-11-01 at what seems to have been a kitten mill. She was sold through a pet store in New Jersey, not spayed, and then resold to a nice woman whose son owns an Inn near here. Her last owner spayed her and gave her the vet care she needed. But when her owner knew she was travelling too much to keep Beyonce, she placed her with me. Probably because of her origins, Beyonce does not have the normal, laid-back personality of a Ragdoll. I chose not to find a new home for her, as she was pretty tired of travelling, and was not what most people wanted in a Ragdoll. But she has a certain charm, thinks she’s a star, and makes us laugh. She’s not nearly as nice as the human Beyonce, but she’s a character.  She has mellowed with age, but still has her demanding ways.

 Blaze (Blue Gems Blaze of Glory of FossMtn)

“Ah, lounging in the sun is my favorite thing to do.”

Blaze is a beautiful seal mitted boy with a perfect hour-glass blaze.  He was our stud cat who replaced Rusty.  He is big, with a very soft coat and very laid-back temperment.  He purrs all the time.   His pedigree is full of very large cats, from Soulmate and Rockinblues catteries.

Blaze went to his first Cat Fancier’s Federation show in November of 2013, in the kitten class, and with many other Ragdolls in the class, was able to place in six of the eight rings.

Blaze has produced his last litter, with Angel Baby, and is now neutered and retired to be our pet.  He did not like living a life separated, as breeding males have to be, so he is now a very happy boy, living with all the other cats and having the run of the house and cellar and cat pen outside.

Keziah (Keziah of Fossmtn)

Keziah is a retired queen who literally thinks she is the Queen.  She is a blue point mitted girl who had wonderful kittens for us, but is now just spending her days eating and playing.  (And occasionally being bossy with Angel Baby and Nicole).  And yes, she has put on a few pounds and should probably join a gym!
