Anne and Brian’s Ragdolls explore their new home

Anne and Brian’s Ragdolls explore their new home

Anne and Brian have planned their new home in the Perpignan area of France with their 12 cats in mind. When we arrived to deliver the cats, there were toys, fresh food and water, and special bedrooms all ready.

Anne and Brian have been leading lights in Ragdoll cat circles, participating in cat shows most weekends. Now they’ll be taking a stall at village markets near their new home to sell goods inspired by their cats, such as scratching posts made by Brian.

        I bet it was and I had to chuckle at the containers on the bench of cat food..identical to the ones we have here ..hehe 🙂

          They are a universal pet food storage container 😉

    Those are GREAT photos…..I know all of those cats were just thrilled to see their humans again after their trip and it looks like everything was ready for them in their new home! Cat beds, litter boxes and LOTS of hugs! YAY!

      Anne and Brian had thought of everything which is more than their moving company had… they were delayed by a day as their vans couldn’t get up the hill to Anne and Brian’s house… which meant we had to kick our heels in Narbonne with friends. Not exactly a hardship 😉

    Adorable! 12 cats, that must be fun. We hope they love their new spot and they all get situated well there together 🙂

    When The Red Man says a post about cats is his favorite, you must really have a special post!! 🙂 These are wonderful photos! I am smiling at the thought of the happiness in their reunion.

      Gee Red Man – thanks! It was a pleasure to see that reunion.

    I love the reunions! I can see the joy in the eyes of their mom, that’s just great!

      Yes, it’s quite obvious that Anne and Brian live for their cats!

    Kitties… I love to see them scouring the place.. being real predators. 😀

    One would have to absolutely, totally, beyond the shadow of a doubt, have to love cats to have 12. Are they cheaper by the dozen? 🙂 –Curt

    Lucky cats. Lucky people / The “kittens” are all gorgeous.

    They are all so cute. I don’t know how you do it. I’d want to take them all home.

      Luckily we all have animals waiting at home for us and the reception would put a dampener on things.

    Oh those Ragdolls are gorgeous!!! I especially like the Bluepoint one…..I am so glad they had a safe trip & are reunited with their Humanz once again.

    Cats are like Lego. When you see them all in one place, it seems like you have more than you started with because normally they’re hiding under couches and beds.

    • Animalcouriers October 3, 2013 at 7:04 pm - Reply

      Ha ha ha! But if you stand on a cat it makes more noise than you do if you stand on lego!

    They are gorgeous!

We'd love to hear from you
