Arrival Story: Picasso came from the same breeder as my other Ragdolls (Jaspurr, Aspen & Snowmitts). He is not related to any of my other Raggies "different parents." My breeder called me to let me that she had a beautiful BiColor Male Ragdoll if I was interested. She had promised us that if she had an exceptional BiColor kitten, she would notify us, which she did. If we didn't take him, she was going to keep him for a Breeder/Show cat.
Bio: I am a floppy kitty who loves being held. The more attention I get, the better. Ragdolls are known for their sweet & docile dispositions. On: 2/13/07, I was sadly diagnosed with VERY SEVERE Cardiomyopathy (HCM heart disease).
UPDATE: On 12/8/08, we lost our precious Picasso to Cardiomyopathy. He was such a fighter and deserves so much credit for his will to live. My baby was only 2 years and 4 months when he made his journey to the Bridge. We will always love our sweet boy and he'll forever live in our hearts.

On 12/8/08, our beautiful Picasso made his journey to Rainbow Bridge at the age of 2 years - 4 months. He was too young to be taken from us but we believe that God needed a special angel so he chose our darling Picasso. We will always love our baby and time will never heal the pain of our loss, only help us to accept it.
Early this morning while everyone was asleep, Cocoa made his journey into Heaven so Kashmere and I were there to greet him. He gave no indication that he was ready fur the Bridge the night before and it came as a big shock to all of us... Cocoa was diagnosed not too long ago with Hyperthyroidism as well as having Cardiomyopathy for 8-1/2 years. He was almost 16-1/2 years old. Cocoa and meowmy had a purrry special bond and wow, what a meowmy's boy he was. They held that special bond up until the day he made his journey.
When meowmy came down stairs this morning at 8:15 am, she didn't see Cocoa and he didn't respond when she called him. She then looked over towards the dining room and saw him laying on his side, facing the patio glass doors. She had a bad feeling because he always answers her calls but this time, he didn't. As she approached him, he did not move so she knew something was terribly wrong. She picked him up and then collapsed while holding him in her arms, The night before, her dear furiend, Marie spent the night and everything was fine. Mom was crocheting while Cocoa was sitting on the sofa with her and auntie Rea Rea and they decided to go to bed at 12:30 am. Daddy was already sleeping since he had to get up early fur work. When auntie Marie used the bathroom at 2:15 am, she saw Cocoa in the flyer and he was fine. Daddy had to get up at 3:00 am fur work and there was nothing unusual with any of the boys. Meowmy and auntie Rea Rea took Cocoa to the vet at 8:30 and Doc Wray came up from surgery to check on our situation which was purrry nice. He said that Cocoa showed no signs of struggling to breathe and that he passed away peacefully at approximately 5:30-6:00 am. He also said that it was his heart that took him. He was such a wonderful kitty and such a good boy. We gained a beautiful angel today but I know that my family is feeling so much pain as well as all of his wonderful kitty furiends. Cocoa will be privately cremated and returned back home the following Wednesday.
I will continue to look over my family and furiends *sprinkles mousie angel dust*
Today was a special day as all of the angels were at the gates waiting to greet auntie Hazel Lucy... I stood next to my sister Kashmere along with so many others. I was holding a purrty pink mousie fur her and Kashmere was holding a cute Hello Kitty doll to give to her as soon as she arrived. We had a big pawty with lots of treats, toys, catnip and Hazel's favorite, baby food. It is always difficult when our pawrents have to say good bye but I know in my heart that one day, we'll all meet again. Hazel Lucy was the founder of the Purrr Thread here on Catster and her meowmy, Julie is well known fur the beautiful accessories (blankies, hats & scarves) that she knits. Auntie Hazel Lucy has touched our hearts and will leave a lasting impression with everyone that was blessed to know her.
Please keep Hazel Lucy's meowmy in your purrrrs & purrayers during this sad time and know that she's in great paws here in Heaven with her hubby, Buddie as well as many new and old furiends.
Today marks my 2nd year Annifursary here at the Bridge and I have since, greeted so many new angels. Kashmere and I are having a wonderful time here and everyday is a big pawty with lots and lots of mousies, Kitty Kaviar and catnip *giggles* You know how much I love those toy mousies. I look down and see my meowmy very sad and crying but I want fur her to know that I'm ok and one day, Kashy and I will come running towards her to greet her with lots of sandpaper kisses and purrrs.
I'm happy to see that my handsome daddy, Monte is doing well along with all of my wonderful fur siblings... It is never easy fur our pawrents to say good bye but that's part of making our journey into Heaven where God will take good care of us and take away any illnesses or pain that we may have endured on Earth. I would also like to meow thanks to all of my beautiful Catster furiends fur keeping in touch and fur never forgetting what a special kitty and furiend I was and always will be. I miss each and every one of you purrry much and will continue to watch over you *blows kisses*
