Ragdoll Cats Part 2
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you would like to take your cat outdoors, use a halter and leash to keep them safe. Make sure your pet has an identifying tag with your name and phone number on it. Better yet, consider having your pet micro chipped. Another alternative is a pet stroller. Should your cat get startled by a loud noise or unfamiliar animal, using these items can prevent the potential of your cat running away and getting hit by a car or becoming lost. Getting startled and lost is a real possibility for ragdolls since they are non-aggressive by nature and would prefer to run and hide rather than stand and fight. My ragdolls love watching squirrels and birds from the safety of the indoors, but I also walk mine on a leash outside my home. They also sit on a chair on the deck beside me.

Whether you decide to take your cat outside or not, they need to be protected from fleas, ticks and mosquitos. I prefer Frontline Plus for use on my boys to protect them, but any quality product can be used. The important point is protecting your pets from these annoying and disease-carrying insects. Even through they may not go outside, you could inadvertently bring these pests inside on your clothes. If there is an open window and tear in the screen, mosquitos generally will find the opening and invite themselves in. Preventing your ragdoll from getting bitten by one of these pests is the responsible pet owner thing to do and costs less than a vet bill for treating heartworm or Lyme disease.

You can purchase ragdolls from breeders through online websites. The websites generally have photos of available kittens and the date they will be ready for release to their new homes. "Cat Fancy" magazine also has a listing of reputable breeders. Kittens identified as "raised under foot" are generally well-socialized and use to being handled by people. Ragdolls are a fairly new breed and by taking advantage of modern technology, breeders have been able to develop a healthy breed of cat. However, even through these cats have very few health issues it is a good idea to check to see if there is a statement that"healthy is guranteed" by a breeder before purchasing a kitten. This can help you avoid large vet bills and possible heartache in the future. Make sure to have your kitten checked by your own vet within two weeks of purchase to make sure it is in good health and find out what needs to be done to keep it on the right track to a good long healthy life with you.

After being owned by my two boys for several years, their sweet-nature, good looks, and trusting ways continue to enrich my days and warm my nights.
