Eddie is over two years old now, so he’s almost fully-grown… He’s 18 lbs now, but he’ll probably get up to 25! Eddie is a [Ragdoll] cat – and yes, that’s a real breed. We got him from the same breeder as our first Ragdoll cat, Tony. In fact, they are brothers. Unfortunately, Tony passed away from a heart attack over two years ago, which was horrible to witness. Actually, we haven’t really had a lot of luck when it comes to cats. This is our fourth cat in almost ten years of marriage!! We’re hoping that Eddie lives a long and healthy life!
Anyway, I don’t really blog a lot about our animals (we also have a dog named Charlie), but I saw a few perfect photo opportunities and couldn’t help myself. And since I’ve got your attention, I wanted to tell you a bit about our dog-cat. He has to be an indoor cat because he’s not very suspicious. He trusts everyone, and he’s incredibly social – all our friends can attest. He’s very patient with both our girls – Marlowe drags him around the house by the tail and Fletcher likes to hug the crap outta’ him. He does nothing to stop those daily shenanigans – he doesn’t even run away!
We love our big boy, and although the reason we got him was very sad – Tony passed away so our breeder offered to give Eddie to us for free – I really enjoy having him around. I must admit that at first he was wayyyy too crazy, what with his attempts at escaping every time we opened the front door and jumping on top of the counter to steal food, but he’s settled down now and Shawn and I really love him. And the girls do, too! 😉
