As a long term cat owner, I decided to treat myself to a Ragdoll kitten from a local ‘hobby breeder’ last year. Chewie was the cutest little ball of floof, and thankfully at the visit of the litter she chose me. It all started so well, however she is 10 days away from being 1 year old, and has become the ‘devil cat’. All the behaviour traits I got her for, she is none of. She won’t let me pick her up, doesn’t like being stroked, bites and scratches, is only affectionate for a few minutes in the morning when my alarm goes off, terrorises my other cat (not a Ragdoll), the list goes on. She does follow me about the house, and weaves about my legs when I am I the kitchen so maybe she doesn’t completely hate me! She hasn’t been spayed yet as I wanted to let her have a litter, and we are off to the vet on Monday just to make sure there aren’t any underlying health issues. I got her at 8 weeks, which I now know is too early, but she has had so much attention and been absolutely spoilt with toys, so much so that my house at times resembles a soft play centre for cats! Is there anyone else out there that has had issues like this, or have I just managed to get the ‘Lemon’ of the litter?
