|-General Ragdoll Information
Ragdoll book authors are in agreement with the small part of Ragdoll history you are about to read. Ragdolls are a hybrid
breed. Meaning they did not occur spontaneously in nature. The late Ann Baker of California is given full credit as founder of
the Ragdoll Breed. It is well documented that the breed began in the 1960's when a white Angora type queen named Josephine
mated with a Birman type male cat whose subsequent offspring were then crossed with a sable Burmese type cat. We use the
word "TYPE" because the foundation cats that formed this breed were not pedigreed cats. It is generally agreed that Josephine
was a free running cat who bred at will. She was owned by Mrs. Pennels, a neighbor of Ann Baker. At some point in time,
Josephine was involved in a road traffic accident and after being found injured she was nursed back to health by a local
university hospital. After her recovery Ann became interested in her kittens as she believed they were calmer than kittens
Josephine had prior to the accident. This belief lead Ann to begin acquiring some of the kittens, Buckwheat being her first.

Ragdolls have a very loving nature and love being close to their owners going from room to room happy to be where ever you
are. Ragdolls have had the aggressive feline tendencies bred out of their them, they should be kept in a very secure place at all
times they do not possess fighting instincts and cannot survive outdoors.
You may put a $200.00 deposit on a baby kitten if you would like to hold it.
Each three month old kitten will have all their paper work in order.
I would like to no a little about you and where the kitten will be living. I also hope that you will feel free to ask any questions
you may have.
Thank you for dropping in have a great day
