Arrival Story: Since the day I was born cats have been a part of my life, unfortunately, it was five long years having a home without a cat! It was during the summer in 2007 when I found a breeder of Ragdolls.... After several emails and a few phone calls we found Jophiel who we call JoJo. Just a few days later we also adopted her sister. Originally Ariel was suppose to go to another family, but at the last minute the other family changed their minds and lucky for us the two girl came home with with us in September 2007.
These two sisters are an interesting pair, they play, sleep and play-fight together and are really good friends. Their personalities are very different, JoJo is rather shy and timid but her sister Ariel is more curious and likes lots of attention.
Bio: JoJo is a Seal Bi-Color Ragalong Ragdoll... she is named after the Archangel Jophiel.
This year we joined in on the Secret Santa at the Pen Paws group and in the process made some special new fur-friends.
Two weeks ago we received a package delivered by “Royal Mail” and inside were some furry special treats sent by some furry kind fur-friends in the U.K. Alfie and his fur-family thought the feather ball and catnip mousies would help me feel better. They also sent a cute RSPCA kitty and she now hangs on our carrier… making trips to the vet much nicer.
We were a Secret Santa to a furry nice family in Fargo, ND. Our brother who lives at the rainbow bridge instantly became fur-friends with Quinn C and well, we are looking furward to seeing more of Nikkos and Ginny.
We also received a package from Fort Smith Arizona and after much anticipation, we opened the parcel this morning. We were so thrilled to find out that our Secret Santa made a donation to the BC SPCA. They also sent some neat things fur our guardian to use like kitty clips, kitty memo pad, pens, key chain and Catnip! Our great big heartfelt thanks to Marina and Tosca.
Ariel & I will be leaving fur our vacation in a couple of days…. So fur now, we wish all of our international and American fur-friends a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful Mew Year!
Well, it's been some time now that Ariel and I outgrew the cramped kitty travel bag. Today was different, we were upgraded to First Class Passengers and now have our furry own Intermediate sized Kennel Cab - in Olive Green.
*nods happily* We were given a "welcome-aboard" treat and discovered that we have just enough paw, tail and ear room fur the two of us. The new travel quarters came complete with a fancy green Glow in the Dark fleece blanket, which kind of got crumpled up into the corner, but it was a nice touch.
We embarked on a journey through the country side to meet our new Vet. *courageous smiles* Dr. Dolphin was furry nice. He looked at my eye and did another stain test. What I have is a condition called Feline Eeosinophilic Keratitis “FEK.” It’s a common corneal disease fur us Ragdolls. The bad mews is I will have it fur the rest of my life, but the good mews is I am now getting a different eye treatment, a topical steroid. We are hoping that this new treatment helps, but the best mews is that I won’t need to have surgery!
My sisfur is in good health so she got her annual vaccination and is now sleeping it off on our Guardian's bed.
It was an exciting day and I'm looking furward to the next road trip. Until my next visit in a couple of weeks, this is JoJo, over and out.
Well I’ve had a strange thing happen with my eyes and it’s been three days since I was diagnosed with corneal ulcerations.
My left eye isn’t furry good, it has tissue on it and I had excessive watering. On Tuesday my Guardian rushed me over to the clinic and they did a Fluorescein staining which made the ulcerated areas become bright green. The vet purrscribed an ointment that goes into my eye, and my Guardian puts it on my eye at least twice a day. *modest smiles* the vet said I was a furry good patient cause I don’t make any fuss.... meow or bite.
Next week I get to meet our new vet, Dr. Dolphin. I know, he has a curious name, but I am sure he is a human! My Guardian will talk to him about seeing a specialist, everyone is hoping that surgery won’t be necessary, but there is a possibility.
We will wait and see... In the meantime, thanks to my fur-friends fur the healing wishes and support. It means a lot to me to have such wonderful furs who care.
