A Word a Week : Fur

Have you ever felt anything as soft and warm and sensuous as the fur of a Ragdoll cat? You can run your fingers through their coat and they will purr with delight, before rolling over for a tummy rub. They are affectionate and playful. Living with 5 of them is a constant delight. Watching the interaction between them, sometimes loving and then in a flash a mini spat will erupt with fur flying and ears back, but it is quickly over and they are all friends again.

These are just 2 of the boys. When Sue of “A word in your ear” gave us “FUR” as the word from her dictionary I just had to take another couple of photos to show you.

Another couple of weeks and we will be heading home and I will take fond memories of these lovely cats with me, plus a folder full of photos

  1. One just wants to smush one’s hand into that Mungo belly!


  2. Yes, I have been fortunate to be able to pet one of these divine creatures. I think if I was going to have a cat, it would have be a Ragdoll. 🙂 Gorgeous pics.

    Gorgeous Fluff Bags ! What a delightful time you’ve had PP with these charges . I’m betting this stay will be one of your favourites 🙂
    Oh for a cuddly one like these ….


  6. My Lily came from the Humane Society & as she reached adulthood she looks like Romeo & Mungo!
    She’s like a puppy dog & follows me everywhere & loves to be brushed everyday. She’s a wonderful companion. My other kitty, Lacy, is attached to Lily more than me. Do you brush the Ragdolls? They look so content in the photos.


    • They do not need regular brushing as they are very meticulous with their own grooming, but they love it when you give them a brush. 🙂 Your two sound lovely
