Whether a Ragdoll is not yet the most enchanting part of your family, or you are already in love head over heels with three or four of these most precious of felines, Susan Nelson's "Guide To Owning A Ragdoll Cat" is the perfect selection for you. Susan knows what she's talking about when describing the soft sweet Ragdoll personality since she's owned by three of these angels herself. The photos are delightfully crisp and clear, picturing a full range of Ragdoll colors and patterns, even the relatively new lynx and flame... and bring out the devastatingly blue eyes that will hypnotize you as if by magic. Susan makes excellent points about the absolute importance of finding a responsible ethical breeder, and makes clear that meeting several breeders and several visits to catteries is highly desirable. She also points out how large some of the Ragdolls can become, and how important it is to properly support their bodies when picked up. Her description of how to make your house Ragdoll friendly (safe), and how to choose toys is invaluable. She stresses the importance of having a scratch tree available. Care of the Ragdoll's health is discussed in detail, from bathing to grooming to dental hygiene to trimming nails... She discusses how to choose a vet, an extremely important topic, vaccinations, spaying and neutering, common feline illnesses... What to feed baby... Bringing Baby home... going on vacation... breeding, showing... I can't think of a SINGLE THING that she neglected to discuss that would be of consequence to anyone interested in Ragdolls. I am so enthused about this book. I wish I had seen it before I spent so much time trying to decide about bringing a Ragdoll home... and it has cleared up several questions I had once I was owned by my Ragdolls. This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Susan also publishes a wonderful Ragdoll calendar every year...
This is a well written book that covers the basics of the Ragdoll breed without getting cluttered up with genetics and detailed husbandry issues. I would highly recommend the book for anyone ages 8 and up who wants to own a Ragdoll. The authors are very honest about the good and bad points of the breed, and care issues.
A wonderful amount of information in a little pocket guide ... I enjoyed this book and found it very useful. It has been difficult to find much information on this wonderful breed, and Ms. Nelson has done a great job trying to impart as many facts as possible while keeping the book a manageable size.
I bought this book last week, and have had a lot of fun reading it! We added a Ragdoll cat to our family last year, and I had been looking for a good book about Ragdolls! It gives history of the breed's origin, the special nature of the breed, etc. It is just what I thought I was buying. If you have a Ragdoll, or are planning to get one, this will be a fun and useful tool for you!
This book is worth the price for the absolutely beautiful photos alone. But, there is more, for a short book,it contains alot of great information. I especially liked the detail section on showing ragdolls. I am a novice considering showing my ragdaoll and I got the basic information I needed. Also, the book is written by ragdoll breeders. So, you get good solid information straight from the horses mouth!
I bought this book for my sister because of the reviews I read here at . I have one Ragdoll and a kitten is due to join our family soon. Niether my sister or I were impressed with the pictures in the book, we've both seen much better pictures at breeders sites on the net. The information provided was good, but again, I've learned more by surfing the net and reading various breeders information than I did in "Guide to Owning a Ragdoll Cat." These are stunning cats with wonderful purrsonalities, I think "Guide to Owning a Ragdoll Cat" could have better represented them.
This book shows what wonderful angels Ragdolls are. The photographs are brillant and beautiful; the information is great; the authors are clear and concise. This is a book for all - whether young or old, owned by a Ragdoll or just interested in this most terrific cat!!
I've been trying to decide on which breed of cat I wanted. This informative book convinced me that Ragdolls are for me. The pictures and details of this breed won me over. I found it to be very helpful in my search of a wonderful new cat.
