They're ever so cute, but to me, all kittens are cute, purebred or not!

about 6 years ago, my gray and white spotted cat had a litter of kittens...five of them....we gave the tabby girl to a friend of mine and kept the rest...on of them happened to be a ragdoll...I didn't know it at first, but my friend confirmed it, and that sometimes they are a random part of a litter.

He is now so beautiful, and sticks by me, most of the time... last year we adopted from the neighborhood, a two month old kitten, solid black, who weighed one pound. We took him in, and he immediately attached himself to Rocky, the ragdoll..he would travel around the house with his front legs around Rocky's neck...now he is the baby to all the cats, but still so attached to our beautiful ragdoll, who incidentally is now about 17 pounds. with great big bue eyes. We also have three birds, two dogs, one rabbit, and six other cats....a full house!

Wise words Sandy, so many people are seduced by cuteness and prestige. I too was a nanny and the family bought, at great expense, a pedigree dog. Within weeks it was huge & knocking the children over, when just weeks earlier they had initiated the rough & tumble, so poor dog had to spend most of its time outside because it was a 'nuisance'. For lack of anything else to do it started to escape and eventually had to be despatched elsewhere (I never did find out....) as it became a sheep chaser. This does little to teach children the value of an animal's life. Sadly many will follow the same path with their own children.

Alongside this post I have an advert for Save the Children. It appals me that people will spend up to £1,000 for a pedigree pet when there are animals in shelters and kids all over our planet who are starving.

As usual, people assume things about what they think they know about. We all have our reasons for doing what we do and yes, some of them are very stupid. But this video is lovely to watch and it has the appearance of people who are breeding their animals in a beautiful area and are doing it right. Perhaps they are ignorant of what they are doing, or perhaps they love it. Rag dolls are expensive and I nannied at a home for 12 years that bought a rag doll. I suggested they get a cat from a shelter and tho I love these people, they did what they wanted. There will always be too many cats and because many people from a very long time ago to this day do/did not spay or neuter their cats, we have way too many, just like people. So new breeds of cats have come along and now you have the interest of people wanting something different. So I guess you can only do the best you know how to educate people about the cats that are available to adopt as others mentioned here. Care2 isn't perfect either. This is just my 2c worth.

Looks like a purrrrfect day in purrrydise

I agree with Sean B. and Terri B....yes the kittens are adorable, but obviously purposefully bred. For each one that gets a home, a nameless kitten/cat get euthanized in a shelter. Care2 should not be glorifying the breeding of kittens on their site. Only when the day comes that it's difficult to find a kitten/cat to adopt, should breeding be allowed.

Susan T - a bit mystified by your comments.
Are you wanting to buy one or hoping that they DON'T export them?
I would have thought the States have more than enough breeders.

What were the circumstances that caused you to euthanise them?

Thank you Edwina, for Sharing this!
