Welcome to Finer Point Ragdolls!
I have loved cats as long as I can remember. Most of my life, I have had rescue cats and kittens. They have all been wonderful and I still have some today. My love for the Ragdoll breed came a few years ago while reading Cat Fancy Magazine. The magazine’s spotlighted breed was the Ragdoll. I was unfamiliar with that breed but fell in love instantly with the cat I saw covering an entire page. What a handsome boy. I decided I had to have one just like him. He was a blue point bicolor, so my search began.
I spent hours on the internet researching the breed and looking for breeders with available kittens. I stumbled onto the website of Echoglen Ragdolls and my chin hit the floor when I saw that picture. It was Echoglen Limited Edition (Eddie), the cat from the magazine. I saw that there were available kittens on the site and at least one was a blue bicolor male, so I contacted the breeder, Laura Nielsen. It just so happened that this little boy was the son of Eddie. I thought, it must be fate. I adopted this kitten and named him Spencer. He has a fantastic personality and rugged good looks so with Laura’s permission, I began to show Spencer as a kitten and then as an adult alter at TICA shows. Spencer did great! He is now retired from showing as a Supreme Grand Champion and Regional Winner.
While showing Spencer, I met several wonderful Ragdoll breeders who’ve become my friends and who have been very supportive of me. With Spencer retired, I still wanted to show. So, I adopted my second Ragdoll alter from Carol Jacquez of Adorabledolls Ragdolls. His name was Adorabledolls Adonis and boy did he fit his name. Another blue bicolor, Adonis was stunning. Shown as a kitten and an adult alter, he did fantastic! He finished Best Cat among all breeds 23 times. He is a Supreme Grand Champion and two time Regional Winner. Adonis is now retired and living the good life with Spencer and me. At this point, I was totally hooked on showing my Ragdoll cats but I wanted to do more. With the encouragement and mentoring of Laura Nielsen, I decided to become a Ragdoll breeder. My intent is to keep my cattery small and produce superb kittens.
