I am Avie, a female Ragdoll, and this is the story of how I came to live in my forever home twelve years ago.
My mother was a pregnant breeding cat who had developed problems delivering her last litter of kittens. Her owners were worried that there might be problems again, especially when an x-ray showed that I was the only kitten and I was a big girl!
Dr. DeCaire offered to monitor my mother during her delivery in case she had problems or needed a Caesarian. Since it was Christmas holidays, my mother went home with Dr. DeCaire. I was born Christmas Eve with no problems at all.
My mother and I went back to the breeders, but when I was 8 weeks old, my owners gave me as a gift to Dr. DeCaire. So except for a few weeks while I was nursing, I was born and have lived my whole life in the same house.
Now I share MY house with my Ragdoll adopted brother and two bothersome dogs. It is a full time job keeping them all in line. I always have to remind them that I was here first so that makes me the boss.
