Say Hello to my New Ragdoll Kitten – Merlin! ♥

As some of you may remember, I lost my dearest elderly cat Magnus at the beginning of the year (see post here). He was my only pet and I had him since I was a little girl, so I was very upset at losing him. However, last month I thought it was about time I move on, and feeling pretty lonely at bed time, I thought about getting a new cat to keep me company. After meeting a Ragdoll cat at a family do, I realised that the Ragdoll breed was exactly for me!

The Ragdoll is a cat breed with blue eyes and smooth fluffy long haired coat. Ragdolls are best known for its docile and placid temperament and affectionate nature. The name “Ragdoll” is derived from their tendency to go limp and relaxed when picked up. They are described as affectionate, intelligent, relaxed, gentle and easy to handle. And they’re so gorgeous.. the perfect cat!

So I found a breeder near to me, who happened to have a new litter of 5 kittens. So I popped over and picked which baby I wanted, and I got to finally bring him home on Thursday evening 🙂 After handing over a rather extortionate amount of money, he’s now settled in brilliantly, investigating his new home and finding his litter tray no problems. He’s also an awesome night time protector – destroying any insects and then sleeping right next to me 🙂 I named him Merlin because I thought it was a cute name! I honestly am in love with him! I am cat mad, and I really think I have a perfect kitten now 🙂 He is going to grow up to 20lbs, but for now he’s my little baby kitten. He is the most expensive thing I own except for my car, but I think he’s worth every penny 🙂
