I've been thinking of adding another pet to the family for the last year. Our Ragdoll cat Tonka, is 10 yrs old this year and is a great family companion.
And I know that another Ragdoll would fit in fantasticly with the kids, but I wasn't able to pay the $600+.
So I decided to duck down the the RSPCA and have a sticky beak, and sure enough was won over by a little lady called Sake. (as in the Japanese wine). She had just been brought out to the viewing windows after recovering from being desexed and when I approached her cage she came up to me stroking herself against my hand purring.
I was smitten :) I met her behind the scenes and decided to bring back the little kids to meet her and see if she would be a match for the family. I was worried the little kids might be a bit grabby and scare her but all went well and I signed the adoption and now we are the proud owners of 2 awesome cats :)
They say that she was brought in as a stray, is a domestic medium haired cat, and that shes about 1yr6mths. She small though, and could still pass as a kitten.
Sake has a beautiful loving nature, and already has settled in really well. And it feels good to give her a loving forever home :)
