Editorial Reviews

From the Author

It took me several years to gather the information for A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home.  I spent hours upon hours talking to breeders, Ragdoll cat owners as well as vets about what were best practices, etc.

In late 2004, my parents adopted two Ragdoll kittens from Kentucky when our family's Rags was 15 years old.  We hadn't had a kitten for 15 years and moreover, we had never had a multiple cat household.  We did have a multiple pet household - always a German Shepherd dog and a Ragdoll cat.

It was important for us to not only upset Rags, the 15-year old, but also to welcome, Caymus and Murphy, the kittens.  We wanted to understand how to make it all work.  So I asked breeders, vets and also fellow Ragdoll cat owners through my website (an informational website about Ragdoll cats) about best practices for introduction as well as food options, etc.  Because of the research and approach, everything went well with introductions.  The breeder had recommended two kittens because if we only got one, then the one would always bug Rags. Whereas if we got two, then they would play with each other and leave Rags alone. 

After Rags passed away in March 2009, I became more serious about looking for my first kittens, Charlie and Trigg.  Since I had just said good-bye to a 19.5 year old cat, I knew that my two juvenile delinquents would be totally different, but it wasn't until after they were home that I realized how very different it would be!

I wrote and published, A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home, two years after the death of my dear, Rags. 

Much of what I experienced taking care of all of them (5 Ragdoll cats) is what I talk about in this book. 

The generosity of Ragdoll breeders who I have communicated with either via phone, in person or through e-mail over the past 10 years should not go unnoticed, their generosity of spirit, unending love for the breed and their attention to the breed have in part made this possible. 

In particular, I want to give a huge thank you to Peg Nelson of Meriwidoz Ragdolls (retired), Jeanette Gogan-Olivier of Angelight Ragdolls, Andra Schroeder of Little Apple Ragdolls, Debbie Le-Strange of GUYSNDOLLS Ragdolls, Melissa Keefer of Pretty Kitty Ragdolls, who helped give me additional information that I could add to this ebook. 

My vet, KC Cat Clinic, a feline specialty practice, has also been instrumental in helping me gain knowledge about overall cat health, well being and care.

I hope you enjoy reading A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Ragdoll cats are very specific in their likes and dislikes. They have their own charm inasmuch as they may sometimes seem like a dog in a cat suit with regard to their personalities. This book will take the mystery out of what to do when the Ragdoll kitten is first brought into your home as a member of your family.

I actually got this e-book back in 2013 but forgot to leave a review. Sorry, Jenny! I wish I had gotten this book before we picked up our Ragdoll Kitten on January 20, 2013. However, even reading this after we got our new baby girl (Miss Pink Sugarbelle) home proved to be very helpful regarding the care of our new kitten. This is a very thorough guide to help you acclimate your kitten to his/her new home. It covers everything you need to know for a happy transition for your new family member! I highly recommend this book. Additionally, I highly recommend you subscribe to Jenny's AWESOME website Floppycats.com (www.floppycats.com) and follow her on YouTube, Google+, Instagram & Pinterest. (You can also follow her via RSS Feed & Flickr, too!) Through her website you will meet the most amazing folks who share their love of the Ragdoll breed (just like you!) :)

My husband and I recently brought home a Ragdoll kitten. Although I grew up with a Ragdoll, I have never, as an adult, owned a kitten. It had also been several years since our family cat passed, so I felt a little nervous about what to expect and do with a new kitten. And my husband has never owned a cat.

I bought this book to help us prepare. I really liked how easy it was to read. I liked how the chapters were arranged and although some complained that there was too many product recommendations, I actually appreciated that. I like when people share what products they have tried and like or don't like. I also found the list of questions to ask breeders very helpful. As a matter of fact, I wish I had that list before I shopped for my kitten.

I also emailed the author with some questions and she quickly responded. In the same day!

This book was very helpful and it is one I will keep and reference.

This is the best Ragdoll book ever. I am new to Ragdolls and this is so helpful. From health care, litter to food and toys. Even a breeder question list in the back for adopters. Great photos too. I have read my book over and over again.

A great book for anyone bringing home a purebred kitten - it also has great tips for kittens in general. And I'm the author! I have an entire website devoted to the Ragdoll cat and can probably help you with any questions you have.
