The ever popular Ragdoll is a large, laid-back, semi long-haired cat with captivating blue eyes. The Ragdoll is a pointed breed, which means that the body is lighter in color than the points (the face, legs, tail and ears). Ragdoll cats tend to be more interested in humans than some breeds of cats.  They are gentle cats, and usually play without extending their claws. The Ragdoll’s semi long coat is plush and silky, and requires minimal grooming to keep it looking its best. They should be combed with a steel comb on a regular basis to find and remove any loose hair or tangles. They are known to run to greet you at the door, follow you from room to room, flop on you, sleep with you, and generally choose to be where you are, and this describes Charlie !

This beautiful 5  year old neutered boy is described by his owner as:  “A tiny and very scared kitten was found by Sacramento police early one morning, evidently dumped by the side of the road, way too young to be away from his mama. It was a coincidence that I was at the SPCA when the police dropped him off. Even in the visiting area this little boy ran and hid under any piece of furniture that was available . Filthy, smelly and terrified, this kitten came home with me. Over the years, this tiny boy has grown into a beautiful and extremely loyal friend. Although still a bit skittish, Charlie trusts and is deeply connected to his selected person.  If I could paint a picture of the ideal home for Charlie it would be a single woman who is patient and has an understanding of fearful/skittish cats. This patience will pay off a thousand times over with Charlie.
Charlie has an incredibly unique personality, while being independent and loving at the same time. (yet on his time.)

Charlie loves to be outdoors. When it is time to come in I call his name and he comes to me like he is a dog coming to his master. And talking all the way – meow – meow – meow- as though he is telling me about his latest adventure. OR when Charlie wants to come inside, he will sit at the door and meow – meow .

Upon entering Charlie will jump on the counter for a snack or meal and instantly begin talking while nudging his head under my hand for his loving – still talking all the while. Because we live beside a bike path, Charlie’s day is spent either in our tree surveying the activity or nestled comfortably under the large tree branches. The people in my neighborhood who use the bike path always say hello to Charlie yet they also respect his duties as “guard” of the bike path.  Charlie knows when it is bedtime and happily jumps onto the bed to sleep on “his” pillow to get his necessary rest so he can start a new daily adventure.

During the winter months, Charlie is gladly an indoor cat,  however,  he most likely will be found napping on the patio where he is sheltered from the wind and rain.

He has a number of yarn balls that from time to time he will bat around. When he is not playing with his toys, he and Ivy, our small, 13 lb dog,  are having a grand game of chase.

Charlie was raised with my grandchildren who stopped over quite often. To this day Charlie is still fearful of the activity that children bring. He will simply hide under the bed until the “coast is clear”. Charlie has been raised around both cats and dogs. He seems to like small dogs better however he will get used to having a cat friend (again on his own time.)

Charlie does use his cat box when necessary. His food is a combination of kibbles (Taste of the Wild) and canned food (pate’ but not anything beef. He may turn his nose up at a “fish” related pate’ as well) Charlie loves boiled chicken tenders which he is given in place of canned food quite often.

I hope this information helps to find Charlie his purrrr-fect home as he is an “extra-ordinary boy”.

Do you have a quiet home, a place with no small children, a safe outdoor environment where Charlie can stay close by to be your ‘watchman’ (not to be free roaming – Charlie cannot just be let loose to be on his own outdoors) and will you be sweet Charlie’s forever person ??  He would love to be your heart cat . . .  then  please send an Adoption Application and contact our Owner Placement Program volunteer coordinator by email:  cheemers@gmail.com or call/text at 541-290-8408.
