As you can see I enjoy showing off pictures of my beautiful breathe taking Ragdolls. My name is Anne Paul, originally from Houston, Texas, but I married a Louisiana boy, and I have lived in Westlake, Louisiana for over 28 years, but may be moving back North of Houston, Texas in the future to be close to my windowed dad and doctors within the next few years as dad is 83 now. Growing up in Houston, Texas, I was exposed to the cat fancy and had Persian cats with my mom in the 1970's and early 1980's before the breed standard changed. I miss the days of healthy doll face Persians, but the ragdolls have that beautiful doll face look, which has stole my heart. Additionally, I went to Texas A & M University , where I majored in Marine Biology, and then went on to McNeese State University for Finance & Economics. Eric (my husband) and I have six children, Mo (28), Nathan (24), James (23), Katie (20), Christie (17) and the late life baby Zack (13). In addition to raising six children, I own Properties by Town & Country, LLC located in Westlake, Louisiana that specializes in foreclosure property reviews for government assets, United state treasury work and contracting government work in relationship to real estate. Therefore, I look forward to coming home to a house full of children and Ragdolls, who act like human children everyday. A few weekends a month, the children and I go to the TICA or CFA cat shows throughout the USA lower 48 states and most have went to Alaska back in 2007, where Fire Dancing Cochise became a Supreme Grand Champion.
In addition to cat shows, my life is filled with the children's activities as we still have Christie and Zack in school. In addition to six children, my oldest son is the father of two little girls, which he has custody taking care of the girls himself, and my daughter Katie is now married to Tyler Oncale from Thibodaux, Louisiana, and they have a precious new baby girl. It seems like yesterday that Katie was the little girl clerking at the cat shows and helping me groom the cats. As the family is increasing, we could almost do our own junior achievement ring at the cat shows. Mo, my oldest son still comes to many of the cat shows clerking and his daughters are starting to learn about the cats. At this time, I have completed my requirements to submit my application into the TICA judging program and plan to do so later in 2015. We are also members of St. John Bosco Catholic Church, and our younger children attend Catholic schools. I can promise you - life is never dull in our home and all of the cats are well socialized.
Often people ask me why I chose to breed and show Ragdolls with such a full life already, and there are several reasons. In the early 1980's, my mom introduced me to Ragdolls, and it was always a breed she wanted to become involved with after she retired as a registered nurse at St Joseph Catholic Hospital in Houston. I was always in love with the breed for many years, but always was saving a stray or helping with finding an abandoned kitty a good home. However, my mom never got her Ragdolls as she was diagnosed with cancer just after retiring. After she passed in the first week of January of 2005, my daughter Christie asked me for a Ragdoll to love since Maw-Maw would not be here to love anymore. I told her that was a great idea, and then it began and I returned to the cat fancy after being gone for many years. We got a Ragdoll named Sammy from Emily Hiscott / Emily's Ragdolls in Sugarland, Texas, and I was immediately intoxicated by this breed. Sammy was unlike any cat I had ever had in my life. He was soft like Rabbit's Fur, big healthy bones & muscles, docile, intelligent, playful, and he truly loved the family. It was a fight to hold the Ragdoll between Christie and I as well as the rest of the family. So the mania began, Eric & I agreed that this was a breed we wanted to become involved with by bringing more Ragdolls into our home to love, breeding the best standards of a Ragdoll, and showing our beloved kitty children. I owe many thanks to the breeders, who mentored me and helped me through the beginnings of Cajun Ragdolls. Thank you for trusting me with your wonderful kittens: Emilys Ragdolls, Ritzyrags, Bamarags, and Lonerock.
