Wow, Jan! What an extremely handsome animal. I said I didn't know very many cat breeds and I guess I proved that. Your avatar colors are very different than this newest picture and softer like the 'chocolate point', at least on my screen.
Perhaps cat breeds are just like dog breeds having been crossed for centuries to obtain their standards. Could the Mitted Ragdoll have a bit of Himalayan in it's ancestry?
I understand how much you miss her. Pets have a way of wheedling their way into your home, then your heart. Unfortunately that's the part that's broken when they leave. Jean
