Traditional Blue high mitted Bi-color
It was a cold winter day in Texas when I arrived at a shelter to pick out a kitty. I sat on the floor in front of the open cages, and Chandler walked over and plopped himself on my lap. The owner told me this was a snowshoe baby, about eight months old, who was rescued from a ravine near their facility. Chandler rolled over on my lap and bared his belly and purred and purred. He was the softest and most relaxed kitty I had ever held - so silky. He went home with us that night. Afterward, with further research, we determined that he was not a snowshoe at all, but a Ragdoll. It was love at first touch! He has since passed on, and after years of rescuing and fostering, and lots of consideration, I decided to start breeding.
Our sweet, but hefty blue bi-color boy Oliver, and our adorable seal mitted Stella are the first of our parents in our breeding program. Oliver was retired early in 2020, though we added some amazing Ragdolls to our cattery in 2020 and we cannot wait to see how pretty their babies are! In addition to our twelve (gasp) Ragdolls, we also have a rambunctious female Pug, Maycee, and stunning black male German Shepherd, Max. Our oldest daughter just added the cutest blue merle Aussie, Sadie, and we are all in love. We also foster for Barkville dog rescue group, and a portion of every kitten sale is donated to Good Mews Animal Foundation and cat rescue group! Giving back to our community is important to us.
Our kitties are underfoot and have 24/7 access to their humans. Babies and momma are separated from the other furry members of the household in the nursery, and kittens are introduced to the household when they are around eight weeks of age and vaccinated. We love our fur babies as much as our human babes, and they are very spoiled! We have a "Stud room" and a "kitten room" with lots of vertical climbing spaces and even a Parakeet for entertainment. All of our kings and queens are HCM and PKD negative through genetic testing.
Our small cattery is registered with TICA under the name FURRYTAILRAGS. This is my fairy-tale life with Ragdolls, hence the play on words when I created "FurryTail" Rags. Our goal is to provide healthy, well socialized and loving Ragdolls that feature the best traits of the breed. We are committed to finding only the best homes for our babies and we look forward to meeting you!
We are so excited about our new Stud Room! Our boys spend their evenings in their stud room, and days in our home with their stud pants (to keep them from spraying but allowing them to enjoy their people, too)!
We replaced the carpet with wood floors and updated the wallpaper in early September, so everyone is much happier with the old carpet gone!
I work from home as a graphic designer with my company, Dazzle Design Graphics, and my husband Mike and I run an inflatable/party rentals business, We Got Bounce. I am also a face painter, and own Creative Illusions Face Painting & Henna. I spend time at home refinishing furniture through our company, Junk Rejuvenations, and love creating something new from someone else's junk. We have five kiddos, ages 13 through 25, and two amazing grandsons, so our jobs are never done, nor is life ever boring!
