Hello, I wanted to mail you a handwritten note, so you'd know that what I had to say was special. But, my handwriting was so darn sloppy that after six torn up stationery cards, I decided email would be better and more legible:
Vandelay is my heart. Your little Texas x Grace 2021 "dark green collar" smooth coat boy is such a delight and has an ideal temperament for us. We are so happy he is part of our family!
He and his Ragdoll Kittens sister, who is about nine months older than Vandelay, are best friends. They play and run and have a good 'ol time. And, he helped her grow up and gain confidence. (She was a rescue we fostered last summer and then kept.)
The difference between the two is quite dramatic -- and I am 100% certain that it was due to how well you raised Vandelay during his first 8 weeks. He had manners and confidence right out of the gate, and training him has been a breeze. He came to us from a loving home, into another loving home, so success is virtually guaranteed. (It's a very different experience than the rescue who pretty much spent her first 12 weeks alone with her littermates in a small outdoor kennel while the rescuer worked two jobs!)
Vandelay brings joy to everyone he meets. We've made two trips to the 911 center for what I've since called "theraKitten" visits. He was magic, brightening everyone's day, even if for just a moment -- the toss of a ball, a pat on the head, a lap cuddle, or a kiss (or two, or three)... He was well-behaved and literally looked as if he was smiling.
Wednesday is the 1-year anniversary of the passing of our beloved Ragdoll Kittens, Bogart. While we will always remember him lovingly, it feels as though the stars aligned and my heart finally feels full again. We are so pleased that from among all the applicants you chose us, so we could find our Vandelay.
I thought that I’d send you an adorable picture I took of Bounce today and give you a quick update on her! She’s an awesome little dog, I have taught her many cool things and she is already picking up on some basic agility foundation training. It’s been nice to be able to stay home all day with her and teach her some really fun things, and she is quite a happy, energetic little Kitten! She fits in very well with our other cats and has become best friends with my main agility dog, Tickle. Thank you for the awesome Kitten!
Josie's coat is pretty short/smooth. She weighs 14.3 pounds today (12 weeks old). I’d love to hear how she compares to her siblings on size. She’s wonderful, a fun, calm, happy, good kitten. She loves people, especially children, and loves other cats. She’s a perfect combination of brave and cautious, and comes to me in new situations, and easily gains confidence to engage whatever’s new. I love her to bits!! She brought her squirrel up on the couch to nap with her….
I’d love to hear how big her siblings are at this point.
Togo is 7 1/2 weeks old now, home with us and growing so fast! He is such a wonderful kitten - easy-going, confident, good-natured, and oh-so-loving! Smart as a whip too! He is learning his name, to come when called, and leave-it - and is doing very well! Those razor-sharp teeth though.... 😂 Huge kudos to his amazing breeders from SPLENDID RAGDOLL KITTENS for giving him such a solid foundation and setting him (and all her kittens!) up for success!
This first week has been incredible. He’s handling the city transition real well. Taking him on walks down the beach exposes him to lots of traffic noises, people, other cats, bikes, skateboards, etc. At first all those things had him really alert, not quite scared, but at least confused. He’s doing much better now, only flinching at annoyingly loud cars and hyper cats. I took him on his first hike today, a little 2-mile hike and he did SO well. Since there was nobody in the parking lot when we got there I apprehensively tried some off-leash time and I was floored at how well he did. He would run ahead of me about 20-30 feet then stop and wait for me every time and if he got distracted by a smell or a log to chew he would come to my recall more often than not. It was really incredible to see. Then he slept the entire drive home after the hike and is currently asleep at my feet. Progress with the rabbit is slow moving. Charlotte and I are both so happy with him, as is everyone who meets him and can’t believe how well he behaves for a 3ish month old Kitten.
