Feline Health / Re: Is there an end?

Oh, we're still plugging along.  I had sciatica in January and most of February and could not sit at the computer.  Wow, that is one of the most painful things you can get and when you mix disc pain with it, oh...  Jamie's face around the eye, up to the ear and down into the whisker pad is still not healed.  He's had a depo shot and is still scratching.  We've been using the opthalmic cream and I've been putting aquaphor on as well.  He was pretty upset over his Mom being so sick and doing so much moaning (yup, did that too).  It finally decided to move along and I've been going for massages too.  Jamie just rubs all over me, kisses, etc.  So glad to have Mom in a better state.  I think we've set a record for vet appointments and right now is the first time since last August that we don't have a weekly appointment scheduled.  Cross those fingers he heals up.  We are kind of running out of options.

Frequently Asked Questions about The Ragdoll Cat / Re: Is My Cat a Ragdoll?
« Last post by Desi on February 28, 2020, 03:31:30 am »
>>>Itís not that I have doubts... I just fundamentally disagree with these approaches.

When you find a Ragdoll-looking cat at the shelter or elsewhere and have the desire to put a label on it, you're likely to disagree with this "approach."  You love your cat and want to use a label of value to describe him or her, whether the facts validate it or not.

When you decide one day that you want a real Ragdoll, one that has *all* of the Ragdoll characteristics that you've read about and/or seen, and one that is healthy, well-bred, and properly nurtured, you won't feel that way. Having a set of guidelines as to what a Ragdoll is and is not will be imperative. Knowing what is and isn't a Ragdoll will be particularly important after you've suffered from having "purchased" a falsely advertised "Ragdoll"-like moggie from a backyard breeder, or even an unknowledgeable breeder, or one that insists that a Ragdoll is something that it isn't who believes they are right when they are not.

It's frustrating to end up with a cat that isn't *quite* like the Ragdoll that you've heard so much about, even though it might look like one. Even more, it's heartbreaking to have a cat that dies at an early age, or to watch them suffer from an illness that could have been prevented.

My baby girl turns 6 today, I honestly can't believe it. I remember the day so well when I got her, she was a ball of fluff and an absolute beauty from the start. She's always had the sweetest nature and ready purr and LOVES cuddles.

Thought I'd share a few pics of her over the years.

I think this was taken during the first week I had her at 4 months old


At 8 months old.



Her first Christmas at 9 months old. She brought the tree down a few times. LOL!



In 2015, trying on some shoes for size. (Sorry the pic is so dark, I took it late one night it was just too cute not to).



Being the nosy neighbour...



One of her glamour shots (When I take the time to set up my camera lighting equipment). Good lighting always makes such a difference.

One of my many favourite pics of her...



Having a game...



On the hunt...



Some very recent pics taken this year...



Those WHISKERS! Lol

Wow! She had really GROWN! I don't think I'd have the energy for a pup right now, LOL! Bailey is just right being a small dog I can give him a quick run round the yard chasing a ball. We have a large yard and it gets rid of his energy. Thankfully he has Katy for a buddy, they've always liked each other and enjoy playing together. I'm always happy when Amy's back during the school holidays because then  Bailey's with her most of the time and just loves playing with her, they have a lot of fun together.
