Making a Come Back

All Photo and Text Copyright Life with Ragdolls 2013 - 2017


Hello everyone!

After losing Angel, I have not been writing as frequently as I want to. Angel impacted Life with Ragdolls more than I thought she would, after all she was a Persian...not a Ragdoll. ;-)
She will be dearly missed.



Life with Ragdolls will be returning more often with weekly content in 2018 when I enter my fifth year of blogging. Wait...fifth year?! It seems just yesterday I was a clueless novice overjoyed with my first post, my first review, my first guest star on another website, my first comment, my first mention in another website.
I am aiming to be having a consistent schedule of posts every Saturday and Wednesday.

In Memory of Angel: February 22, 2003 - September 5, 2017

It has taken me awhile to write this, Angel was diagnosed with oral squamous cell carcinoma cancer on August 31, 2017. It is a very aggressive cancer and unfortunately there is no cure.


My dear Persian Mobile died in my lap in her favorite blanket on September 5, 2017 at 12:18 AM. She went so peacefully and the last words she heard were that I love her no matter what.
The days leading up to her death, I let her enjoy her favorite things one more time. Cooked rabbit and pasta; one of her favorite "treats". Watching Criminal Minds, snuggling in her favorite blanket, playing with her favorite toys, watching Rescue Me, reading Stephen King, reading John Lutz, were a few, oh and eating lightly salted popcorn she loved too. Angel was born blind in both eyes but that didn't stop her from being a normal animal.
Angel is being privately cremated with her ashes returned to me.





Thank you my love for everything you helped me get through in life and helped accomplish with this blog. You will be missed dearly and loved forever and always. <3


Angel went by the nicknames of Persian, Persian Mobile, Angel Cakes, My Little Persian, Sweet Fluffy Persian, Oh Little Persian Mobile, Persian Mobile O's, Persie,  Crusty Persian Mobile (she'd get canned food stuck to her face a lot), Ancient Persian Mobile, Ancient Persian, The Almighty Persian Mobile.

Persian was smart, loving, playful, friendly, amusing, and always by my side. Angel loved everyone and everything (even her vet). She never bit, tried to scratch, or hiss. She loved other cats, kids, dogs, strangers and just about everyone! A heart of gold.




Persian Mobile will be dearly missed. I'll love you forever, my sweet Angel.

3 Years Ago Today, I Lost My Nico

All Photo and Text Copyright Life with Ragdolls 2013 - 2017


When the light ends for all hope and you must say goodbye, goodbye to my Nico started 3 years ago today. For those of you that are new, Nico was part of my inspiration for Life with Ragdolls when it started 4 years ago today. Nico was our beloved star for 2 years before he lost his battle to genetic heart disease on July 14, 2014. Nico was only 5 years old when it was his time. He captured the hearts of many, from as close to us as Dothan, AL to as far away as New Zealand. There is a famous painting of Nico in Rome. The news of his death brought over 60,000 thousand views in under one day. He will be missed.


Thank you for everything Nico. You were amazing. I love and miss you always.

Review Day: Primal Freeze Dried Cat Treats

All Photo and Text Copyright Life with Ragdolls 2013 - 2017



Hi Everyone!



Today I have a review for the Primal Freeze Dried Cat Treats , I reviewed the beef liver variety. These treats come in 3 flavors: beef liver, turkey liver, and pork liver. These treats are sourced from The United States of America and New Zealand. These treats are appropriate for both dogs and cats. These treats are made without added salt, sugar, grains, gluten, hormones, and antibiotics. Perfect for my spoiled crowd of 5. ;-)

These treats are currently available for $6.99 for a 2 oz bag. These make awesome training treats for the cats and perfect for when I travel and need to put them in their carriers. I just wish these treats were easier to break up! Nevertheless though, the cats love them crumbled over their canned food.



Sadly this picture sucks because it was raining the day I took it and worse, I only have one picture to post due to Anya eating through the bag!



Pros:

* Fast shipping.

* Great customer service.

* All 4 of the cats loved them ( Star is the black sheep in the family and didn't approve of these).

* High quality ingredients.

* Little smell.

*  Resealable bag.

* 3 flavors to choose from.






Cons:


* Expensive for 2 ounces.

* Star did not like these and would only eat 1.




Over all, the cats and I rate this a 4.2 star product and I will be buying these again.

Review Day: Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Cuts Canned Cat Food

All Photo and Text Copyright Life with Ragdolls 2013 - 2017



Hi Everyone!


I am just now able to comment and blog more. Sorry! I've been crazy busy with my other new website (don't worry, Life with Ragdolls is still shinning. ;-)



Today I have a review for the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Cuts Cat Food , I reviewed the duck variety and this food is available in 3 varieties: duck, chicken, and salmon. I have reviewed the chicken before ( I can't find the post or link but I believe I reviewed it back in December 2015 or 2014. Some where around that time frame. Haha).
The duck flavor is available currently for $28.39 for a 24 pack that is 3 ounces per pouch. This food is a food topper\mixer\supplement and is not made to be a complete cat food. I am a food nerd in general (human food, cat food, rabbit food, and even the food for my betta fishes is super special) ;-)
Lately, I have been researching the importance of cats on a wet food only diet and I've shown great interest in switching my 5 cats to a all canned food menu. Unfortunately though, they still have a lot of kibble to go through before I can make the full switch to just canned food. There are some brands of cat kibble that I really like so maybe I will do kibble monthly?











Pros:

* Fast shipping.

* Great customer service.

* All 5 of the cats loved it.

*  Grain free.

* 3 flavors to choose from.

* Blue Buffalo is one of my favorite brands and they also market dog food (canned and kibble), cat food (canned and kibble), and cat litter. So many choices!






Cons:

* At almost $30 for a food that is not a complete cat food diet, this makes it very expensive to feed daily and each pouch is only 3 ounces.


* Although this time I only reviewed the duck flavor, I have reviewed the chicken flavor in the past and only Angel ate it.


* It stinks.





Over all, the cats and I rate this a 4.5 star product. Due to the smell of it and the cost, I won't be buying this often. My heart says yes but my wallet says no. ;-)
