Adopted by Gil & Yolanda
2-3 Year Old, F, Lilac Point Ragdoll
This is a hard story to understand. Chloe, such a lovely little girl, lived lost or abandoned in a parking lot for almost two years. Employees from a nearby store fed her, and other cats, in the evenings. No food on Sundays? No shelter in the rain and cold? She was friendly to them though skittish. Who lost this beautiful spayed young kitten? How did she end up all alone living under cars? How did this happen?
Thank goodness she was fed but I sure wish someone had called rescue and gotten some help for her. Two years is such a long time. Recently she was seen by a woman who helps kitties. This woman had just helped to get the two just adopted kittens, Cupcake and Cookie, into foster with me. She worried out loud to me about this cat. I asked her to get me a photo. (That photo can be seen below.) Oh My Goodness I though this is a Lilac Point Ragdoll. I asked this kind woman if she could catch her and bring her to me. And very quickly she came into foster with me.
What a pretty little darling I found I had. The camera loves her. She is a very gentle cat, obligingly accepting new situations and new humans. Initially shy, Chloe is settling in easily. She is not yet however happy, joyous and playful. She needs some time to come to trust life with humans. There is an uncertainty or sadness you can see in her eyes. I think she wants to be inside and has no desire to go outside so there is no problem there. Because she was spayed she did not attract mates and when we tested her for FeLV and FIV (Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS), the two diseases she would likely get through close contact with outside cats, she was negative for both. We have wormed her and put her on flea meds and given her supplements and high quality food and bathed her. She now has a microchip. A vet has found her to be remarkably healthy.
Her photos don’t show how little she is. If it weren’t for her feeding history you could easily think she was a teenage kitten. Lilac Point kitties have soft grey coloring on the head, feet and tail with soft cream colored fur on the body. Of course she has the Ragdoll’s beautiful blue eyes. Ragdolls have an easy care coat without the cottony undercoat that causes the grooming problems of Persians. This girl enjoys being brushed.
Chloe needs a family who will love her and enjoy watching her unfold a bit. She has no bad habits. She eats well, uses her box, accepts petting, and even being held. She really is a very gentle girl. Perhaps she is coming from such hard times that she is super grateful. “Please just love me and keep me safe – I will be good.” It is heartbreaking. Perhaps in the future with new confidence in her life she will become a diva and train her humans to pamper her in every way. I rather think so and hope so. Chloe needs a quiet, stable home. She is a cat friendly girl and would be fine with good-natured cats. I think I would want her to start out in a home with no young children or dogs. (I have no idea what experiences she has had with dogs.) Let’s make it easy for her.
Some family will be very lucky to have this lovely girl’s companionship. Ragdolls are loyal and bond so deeply with their humans.
Chloe eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
Her foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
