Elora and I live in the same city but quite often we find each other on Skype. It’s far cheaper than using our mobile phones and Mama has our house phone super-glued to her ear anyways. Every morning I spot Elora on Skype just like I would bump into her at the local Starbuck’s (or Tim Horton’s for my Canuk readers).
Our conversations are all over the map discussing work, health and just daily life. I told her that was thinking of buying a Ragdoll cat for November. Although I truly believe I did the right think rescuing Stelle from the Gattile I think this time I need to have a young cat that will hopefully be around for many years to come. My heart can only stand so much heartache.
Rocky has disappeared and the “made in China” auto-feeder I bought malfunctioned as soon as I left. I haven’t seen him since I returned two weeks ago but once the food supply ended I can hardly blame him for taking off. Anyways back to our Skype chat…the conversation went something like this:
Me: I really want her but they are quite expensive.
E: So how expensive is this Ragdoll kitten?
Me: 800 Euros…
Me: Did you fall off your chair?
E: No, I’m not that surprised but be sure to take the bullet train from Rome to Genova when you pick her up…
Me: Are you kidding me? For 800 Euros this kitty should be driving the car home!
But honestly, isn’t she adorable? Is anyone looking for a fence painter? I think I need to get a second job for this little princess. I’ve already penned several possible names for her from Xanadu, to Lola, to Pandora to Coco (because she probably costs the same as a Coco Chanel purse!) How about Prada Paws? Or Veronica Versace? Sachi for short : )
I need sleep now, Mama gave me an entire box of sleeping pills and this could be a very interesting week indeed! In the meantime here is the link to the Italian cattery…if any of my readers are nearby this place (2 hours outside Rome) or know anything about the breeder please drop me a note. http://www.ragdolls.it/
Or better yet, if anyone has ever had a Ragdoll cat I want details…
