Born ~2015, M, Seal Point Ragdoll
This boy has gotten so affectionate it is ridiculous. It was impossible for me to take photos of him a couple of days ago because he walked toward me for petting every single minute. He was so much fun, but I couldn’t get any photo’s til I had someone to help. He even jumped up on my lap and wanted to stay. He has become a very happy, outgoing kitty.
When he arrived from the shelter, he was polite and a bit remote. He was languishing in the shelter because he had a wounded tail, and rescues shied away from him. Actually, his wound was old; the very end of his tail was missing, and about an inch of it was sort of grey and dried up. We arranged to have the dead part removed, and he has healed beautifully. He had quite a dark plume of a tail. I included a photo so you can see how it looked when we got him. When his long hair grows back, his tail will look about seven or so inches long. He has normal movement with this tail.
Of course, we will never know what happened to him, but I expect some animal bit the tip off and pulled away the skin from the next inch, the part we had taken off. This kind of damage is called an exit wound. He was running away but wasn’t quite exiting fast enough. Poor guy.
So that is old history. Now named Beauregard, he is ready to go to a new home and new life. He is a lovely boy with striking blue eyes. Seal Point Ragdolls have dark brown face masks, ears, feet, and tails. They cut off the long dark brown hair on his tail, but it will grow back. Ragdolls are very popular kitties with their mellow, affectionate nature and big, beautiful looks. And Beau is big; he is a solid, strong boy who weighs over 12 pounds.
Beauregard would be good in many kinds of homes. Ragdolls always do best in stable and quiet homes, ones without noisy chaos. Beau has clearly had enough excitement for now, so let’s make it easy for him. I think he would be fine as a family cat with older children or as a companion for a couple or single adult who is home a lot. Since we don’t know who bit him, I would prefer not to send him to a home with dogs. He is fine with other cats – he completely ignores them, so he is not a good companion cat for a needy cat.
His new family will love giving his soft, cuddly body the affection he enjoys. He clearly is a lap cat and would love to watch late-night movies with you.
Some family will be so lucky to have his warm companionship.
Beauregard is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
He is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.
