About Opal

Adopted by Julia

These two beautiful sisters are part of a litter of four kittens known as the Jewel Kittens. Jasper and Jetstar, now adopted, are their brothers. And what a beautiful litter they are. !! These kittens were surrendered to a shelter by a family that already had enough cats and could not keep the kittens born in their home.

Opal is the more dominant of the two. She is electric with her snowy white feet and sparkling blue eyes. A comedian and a minx she is also the main troublemaker of the two. Ragdolls are “color pointed” kitties which means that their “points” the face mask, ears, feet, and tail- darken as they age. Her white feet will become all the more showy as her legs darken.

Topaz is playful, curious and loves exploring but she tends to follow her sister’s lead in most new situations. With her soft grey color she is called a Blue Lynx Point. Her eyes are an icy blue which is set off perfectly by the grey tones of her face mask. Both sisters have dramatic creamy ” eyeliner” which Mother Nature provides to make their eyes look larger and more imposing just like on the big cats of the world. These two are still growing in their coats. Actually Ragdolls, like Maine Coons, keep growing and maturing until they are over three years old. These two are still essentially babies.

Their soft silky fur and their mellow, easy going nature make Ragdolls one of the most sought after cat breeds. These kitties are generally good family cats.They are not as happy with noise and commotion as Maine Coons are but they are smart and if bothered they will simply find a quiet corner to go take a nap. They make very loving companions.From my years of being a Ragdoll foster mom I have learned that one thing especially distinguishes Ragdolls. These kitties do not take change well.Being in a shelter, for example, depresses them more than most breeds. They mope. They may not eat normally. They are slower to bounce back. Their families need to be very loyal to them and protect them.

Opal and Topaz are quite cat friendly. I don’t know how they would be with dogs. They would probably be fine with gentle children over 4 yrs of age. Their beauty, playfulness and loving natures will be a joy to their new family.

Opal and Topaz eat wet and dry food and are litterbox perfect.

Opal is spayed, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, and microchipped.

She is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interests!
