Born ~2013, 7-year old, M, Lilac-Point Ragdoll
Winston is a stunning Ragdoll with intense blue eyes and beautiful lilac-point markings.
Winston came into rescue from a purebred Ragdoll breeder who passed away unexpectedly.
A lot has changed in his life, and he’s still adjusting.
New people are scary to Winston, and he will run and hide when approached. If you’re calm,
he may sniff at your finger but not let you pet him right away. He definitely does not like to be picked up.
However, once he’s used to you, one of the best ways to make friends with Winston is to brush him.
And this is a good thing as Winston came into rescue with quite a few matts and requires daily
grooming of his fine, soft coat.
Once you start brushing his shoulders and back, he may roll over to show you his tummy and will often crawl into your lap purring loudly. It’s also good idea to keep his nails trimmed as he’s a champion ‘biscuit-maker’ for sure!
Although he’s still somewhat skittish, Winston enjoys patrolling the house to see what’s going on. Winston loves to play with stuffed toys and you’ll often find him chasing them around on his own. He finds a good spot to keep a eye on what you’re up to, and he can be quite vocal at times.
Winston would love to find a quiet forever home with a patient adopter that will let him settle in at his own pace, while lavishing him with attention.
Winston is up-to-date on vaccinations and uses his litter box perfectly. He’s had a recent vet check and enjoys a dry food diet.
Winston is currently fostered in Sunnyvale, in the south Bay Area near San Jose.
