Hi All, Just wanted to update after I posted on here a few months ago. I was looking to rehome a maine coon, but after some helpful responses ended up looking at ragdolls instead. I was put in touch with the lady in my area who rehomes them, and agreed the best way forward. This Friday I will be picking up 2 beautiful ragdolls (brother & sister) who have been very definitely worth the wait! Two reasons for me putting this post up (photos will follow), I have been mightily impressed with the dedication of the people who work with these (and all other) cats trying to find forever homes. I have noticed some comments about people who were frustrated with the length of time they have had to wait to adopt, or to get contacted. It is worth the wait - please be patient!! I have no doubt at all that I wouldnt have been offered my 2 if they werent suitable for me and my environment - which saves me hassle, getting an animal with unknown problems and potentially having to hand them back in the future. Also I am now also aware of the amount of time and effort (and money!) goes into rescuing unwanted animals and can certainly understand why Anne (my cat lady ) was initially hard to get a hold of - they're not being rude - they just have a lot to do! I know I couldnt do it - but will be helping when needed. So - many thanks to everyone who gave me advice on my first posting, this site has been incredibly useful and an eye opener!!
