Saga is a 1 - 2 year old flame point Ragdoll mix who came from Amarillo. He was initially deemed as feral/semi-social. He actually made really good progress at first right after he arrived, but then I got so many sick cats tin from Amarillo that I was unable to spend a lot of time with him and he regressed a bit.
Fortunately, I have been home most of this last week and I have been able to spend a lot of time with all the cats since finally our sick cats have gotten well and I can focus on our PIPs. Saga has been one of those Pips.
Last week he escaped from the shy room or the Rehab Room as we call it and he's been running around the house. About 3 days ago he moved into my bedroom and he was kind of just flitting around the edges of the bedroom. I have been talking with him trying to encourage him to come and be with us and last night he came up to the bed, waited until I turned over on my side, and then jumped up in bed with us. This is major progress. He now sleeps with us most nights.
Today, he was lying on one of the cat trees and let me walk straight up to him and start putting on him. In fact I thought he was Charlemagne until I felt his coat, because Saga has a stunning, silky coat and while Charlemagne has a nice coat it is certainly nothing like Saga's. He also likes to talk and can be very vocal.
I can now walk up to him in the house even if he is not in one of his safe spaces. It has taken a long several months to get him to this point where I can just love on him and he purrs. I consider his story one of our big success stories in a year where I feel like we have had a lot of failures.
Saga is now ready to go home to the right home. I would not recommend a home with small children. I would recommend a home with other cats as he actually likes spending time with other cats. In fact he is going to have to go under our kitten policy, which means that he does have to go home with another cat or kitten or go to a home with another cat or kitten. In his case, it doesn't have to be a young cat. He just needs the reassurance and companionship of another cat. He is actually very good friends with Bard and Arietta.
If you are interested in adopting this very special, amazing cat who has gone from living in a feral Colony, being trapped, and dumped at a shelter to being a sweet, friendly cat, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. He is now in a foster home in Ennis, Texas.

Sorry, we do not ship our cats or provide any transportation. All potential adopters should reside in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, New Mexico, or Louisiana. We will not adopt outside of those states.
Who We Are: We are a private rescue and privately funded. WE ARE NOT A SHELTER, BUT A RESCUE. A rescue is a PRIVATE HOME and not a public place to visit. Adopters must make appointments prior to visiting foster homes. All of our cats are spayed/neutered, FIV/FELV tested, wormed, de-fleaed, and vaccinated prior to adoption.
Adoption Process: We require all potential adopters to fill out an adoption application prior to setting up an appointment to visit with the cat(s). We conduct veterinary and personal reference checks during the application approval process. If you call or email us, we will provide you with an application via email.
Kitten Policy: Unless otherwise indicated, all cats under the age of 3 must go into a home with another cat/kitten under the age of three or be adopted with a buddy. Ragdolls and Maine Coons are physically slow to mature, benefit greatly from the social interactions with another cat and often long for the companionship. Obviously, some young adults not raised around other cats or with more independent personalities may be exceptions to those rules, but that is up to the discretion of the Rescue to assess that need and is not negotiable. Special prices are made for buddy adoptions.
