I like Cinnamon, my feminine seal-bicolor Ragdoll such a lot that I made up our minds she wanted a Ragdoll playmate. (Cinnamon debuted as Floppycats’ Kitty of the Week December 7, 2020).

I contacted Cinnamon’s breeder, Stardolls Ragdoll Cattery. She had no seal-mitted kittens however one in all her queens was once wearing 5 kittens sired by way of her unproven seal-mitted. In fact, she may neither ensure colours or sexes. I must wait however I unquestionably sought after a child boy.

I resolved to patiently look forward to the delivery of the muddle. Then, I gained the lengthy awaited name. 4 women and one male had simply been born. He’s mine I excitedly informed her! When can I see him? I must wait awhile till it was once protected to view the new muddle which felt like an eternity.

After many calls to test on my potential kitten, the viewing day in any case arrived and I had a excellent case of the butterflies on my technique to meet my new child boy.
The 5 treasured bundles of white had been having a good time taking part in with one any other.

One specifically was once an actual power bunny. Yup – that was once my child boy!

So, extra ready sooner than I may make my ultimate resolution.

The celebrities had been aligning when the breeder referred to as to mention that it gave the impression my child boy is also a seal-mitted. And, any other seek advice from to look him. I had already fallen head over heels together with his power bunny character and informed the breeder I sought after him. He was once my “little pepper” to go with my lady Cinnamon, so I named him Cayenne on that very day.

Since he was once going to be neutered, I asked that he be micro-chipped on the identical time. Couldn’t take him house but. Extra ready!

I introduced Cayenne house the lengthy vacation weekend of July 4th in 2011. Oh, what a weekend that was once! Cinnamon completely sought after no a part of sharing me or her house with any other cat – Ragdoll playmate or no longer.

I attempted all of the recognized a success tactics to introduce an current cat to a brand new kitten, and not anything was once operating. Cinnamon made it crystal transparent to each the kitten and me that this new playmate was once no longer welcome.

The lengthy vacation weekend felt even longer. My mild loving Cinnamon was once so anti-playmate she was once even lashing out at me. I gave up – I couldn’t put her via this anymore, so I put Cayenne and his provider in the toilet and I sat at the ground out of doors the closed door in tears. What had I accomplished? My kitten was once nervous and Cinnamon was once wired. I needed to take him again. The various calls to the breeder that vacation weekend all went unanswered.

I saved checking on Cayenne and would in finding him no longer in his provider however curled up in the toilet sink. He’d greet me with an excessively cushy meow after I opened the toilet door and purred after I held him. It tugged at my center.

How may I take my treasured child again to his breeder? What a quandary. I tried yet another advent – OMG it labored! And so, Kitty Kitty Cayenne had a brand new and loving house and Cinnamon become his mentor. I’ve what my mother would affectionately consult with as “the spice youngsters.”

When Cayenne was once round age 3, I bought a kind of adobe pots with the cups at the aspects for rising strawberries. My crops had been thriving with a number of scrumptious berries for my morning cereal. Then the birds discovered the berries or a minimum of that was once what I believed.

Cayenne has grown right into a good-looking little guy. Smartly, in reality no longer so little. Extra like a fourteen pound armful of plush. And, oh the ones large blue eyes that he blinks ever so slowly- blink, blink. I learn someplace that the ones sluggish blinks are kitty kisses.

I will get him to blink if I slowly shut after which open my eyes when he’s having a look at me. He has the longest whiskers I’ve ever noticed on a kitty and nice large paws that cross plop, plop, plop when looking to catch his laser mild.

Cayenne is 9 and a part years outdated now. He advanced urinary issues at age 4 and was once out and in of the vet place of work. Then very overdue one night time final 12 months he was once streaking via the home crying. I whisked him off to the puppy ER and I used to be informed he was once vital. He was once blocked. The group of workers would do all they may. I used to be allowed to seek advice from him two times an afternoon within the ER ward. Fortunately, after 4 lengthy days he was once discharged with meds.

The ER informed me that it could occur once more. Oh nice!

And it did – two weeks later round nighttime. Why does these items all the time occur overdue at night time? This time I took him to a puppy ER nearer to my house.

Although my kitties have a ceramic water fountain on every degree of the home, Cayenne hasn’t ever ate up a lot water. So, at the side of his strict nutrition of canned Royal Canin Urinary SO prescription nutrition, somewhat of bottled Dasani water is added (handiest the most productive for my child boy) and we’re recurrence loose, up to now.

Each Cinnamon and Cayenne had been dry meals junkies.

After studying “Feeding Your Cat: Know the Fundamentals of Tom cat Diet” by way of Lisa A Pierson, DVM, catinfo.org, I known that the Royal Canin dry kibble their breeder had inspired me to proceed feeding after I introduced them house was once no longer preventative vitamin and looks to have predisposed my Cinnamon to her prognosis of IBD and PID, at the side of suspected small cellular lymphoma of the spleen and Cayenne growing urinary tract illness. Hindsight is in reality 20/20.

It was once difficult to get them 100% off of dry kibble and I’d love to take it a step additional and turn them to a uncooked nutrition, however I’m no longer positive if introducing a uncooked nutrition right now will “disenchanted the apple cart” making an allowance for their present well being demanding situations. I can discover that choice with their vets at their complete well being checkup subsequent month.
