Shanell's Story...
10 week old Female Tortie Point Ragdoll

During kitten season, it is common for kittens to arrive at a shelter with their
mother--or a pregnant mom arrives at a shelter and has her kittens in a foster
home. In such cases, we try to rescue the whole little family. The babies
nurse and enjoy their mother’s care until they are weaned. Then we find a new
home for the mother and usually place each kitten along with a sibling.

On other occasions, kittens come in as a litter without their mother. Perhaps
the kittens were found stray, with the mother nowhere to be seen.
Perhaps—surprising as this scenario might seem in California in the twenty-first
century!--a family left a cat un-spayed and regarded kittens as disposable. In
these cases, we rescue the babies, bottle feed them, and transition them to
solid food. They don’t have their mother with them, but at least they can
cuddle and play with their siblings.

Shanell’s case was different, however. This lovely baby arrived at the shelter
all by herself. What happened to her mother, and where were the siblings she
must have had a week or a few weeks before? This beautiful kitten found herself
in a strange place, utterly alone.

Considering her bleak beginnings, Shanell is doing very well. She gets along
well with the other kittens in her foster home but also loves to
settle into a comfortable lap to be cuddled by a human companion. We are
willing to place her either with another kitten or as an only kitten.

Shanelle is a tortie point, with splashes of gray and cream on a background of
ivory. Like all Ragdolls, she has blue eyes. Her coat is “semi-long” and silky
and will require little grooming, because the fur of a Ragdoll is usually not
prone to matting. As a breed, Ragdolls are large cats, but there is quite a bit
of variation in the size of adult females: some weigh less than 10 pounds, but
we’ve had female Ragdolls who weighed more than 15 pounds as adults without
being fat. Ragdolls don’t reach their full size until they are three or four
years old. Their coloring also develops over many years, darkening over time.
(It is always fun when adopters send us “grown-up” photographs of the cats we
place as kittens.)

Shanell is spayed, current on vaccinations, FELV negative, and microchipped.

She is fostered in Davis.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shanell, a Davis Ragdoll kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Ragdoll for sale in Davis, or seeking a Ragdoll kitten from a breeder in Davis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Davis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Davis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Ragdoll breeders who help with Ragdoll rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Davis paves the way for another one to be saved.
