I reside in sunny Clearwater, Florida with my Ragdoll family, where I am a small, hobby breeder/exhibitor of Ragdolls. I began breeding/showing my Ragdolls in 1999. I provide a five-year genetic written contract and a lifetime HCM guarantee. My Ragdolls, who are raised in my home underfoot, have become my extended family and an integral part of my life. After much research, I decided that the Ragdoll was the cat for me, with their loving, docile and placid temperaments and dog-like qualities. I would like to thank the families who have adopted my babies over the years, and provided them with such loving homes. Their respective moms and dads and I thank each and every one of you for your pictures, cards and friendship, and most importantly for loving my babies and taking such wonderful care of them! Thank you!

I decided to breed and show Ragdolls because they are the most dog-like of all the cat breeds. When I was married, I bred and exhibited German Shepherd dogs, so taking care of animals and exhibiting has been an integral part of my life. With my caregiver personality (having taken care of my father for 18 months before he passed away in my home), I have found my niche in life, and am proud to say that my mommies/daddies and I have now produced FORTY-SIX (46) CFA Grand Champions.

FIRST CFA NATIONAL WINNING RAGDOLL: On May 1, 2000, the Cat Fanciers Association ("CFA") approved the Ragdoll in the bicolor and van patterns for Championship Competition, meaning they could compete for the title of Grand Champion, as well as other titles within CFA. During this 12-year period, no Ragdoll has attained enough regional points in a show season in any of the three classes (Kittens, Championship or Premiership) for the title of National Winner ("NW"). This is the top title awarded in CFA and had been an illusive one for the Ragdoll, until now! Each show season, the NW title is awarded to the Top 25 Highest Scoring Cats in these three classes. Grand Champion Bordeaux LTD's R-U-Ready Made ("Matty") and her husband, Champion Sandollrags Walker of Bordeaux, LTD ("Walker"), have asked me to announce that their son, Enzo Purrari, is now the First Ragdoll to win the Illusive National Winner title, finishing as 10th Best Premier in the World with 3,914.75 regional points. They are proud to say that Enzo's titles are now: Grand Premier, NW Bordeaux LTD's Enzo Purrari, and he is lovingly owned and was beautifully presented in the show rings by Jim Flanik of Northfield, Ohio during the show season ending April 2012. In addition, Enzo is the 3rd Best Premier in the Great Lakes Region ("RW") and Highest Scoring Ragdoll Alter in the World. We are so proud of both Enzo and Jim, especially since Jim and Enzo were new to the cat show world! Great job boys - The Purrari Team! Matty, Walker and I are unbelievably proud of both of you! SECOND CFA NATIONAL WINNING RAGDOLL: Not to be outdone, Jim sets a record again this show season (ending April 2013), witj Jim attaing another National (NW) Win with GP, NW, RW Bordeaux LTD's Carroll Shelby ("Carroll"). Carroll is now the Second National Winning Ragdol in the history of the Ragdoll Breed in CFA, finishing 14th Best Premier, earning him the title of NW (National Winner) and 4th Best Premier in the Great Lakes Region! Absolutely incredible that Jim set a record last year earning a NW title with Enzo, and he did it again this year with Carroll Shelby! My heartfelt thanks to you, Jim, for your hard work and for setting another record with a Ragdoll! And most importantly, for loving both boys so much! I am so proud of all three of you boys. To top it off, Carroll is a Walker son also!!

When Jim Flanik obtained the title of Grand Premier on Carroll Shelby, he helped his mom, Champion Raggledazzle's Olivia earn the title of Distinguished Merit ("DM"), a coveted award in CFA for producing five (5) CFA Grand Champions. Thank you boys! Congratulations to Grand Champion Bordeaux LTD's Sassafras of Sal-Shire, lovingly owned by Sallie Dubay, our newest Grand Champion! Thank you Sallie for Granding Sassy!! Thank you also to Sunhee Park in Korea for attaining the Grand Champion title for her baby Justin in one show in Korea; making him the first CFA Grand Champion Ragdoll in Korea: he is now Grand Champion Bordeaux LTD's Justin of Bloomdolls.

During the month of September 2011, we are proud to announce our 43rd CFA Grand Champion: Grand Champion Bordeaux LTD's Lindy LuLu, who is litter sister to Grand Champion WalkinTheSand ("Sandy"). We are proud to announce three more CFA Grand Champions in one weekend in August 2011 at a CFA show: Grand Champion Bordeaux LTD's Disco Danny (our 40th), Grand Champion Bordeaux LTD's WalkinTheSand (our 41st) and Grand Premier Bordeaux LTD's Nilla Alina (a two-show Grand Premier; our 42nd Grand Champion)! Nilla is lovingly owned by Jennifer Hoffman! Congratulations to Jim Flanik of Ohio and our 39th Grand Champion, Grand Premier, Regional Winner Bordeaux LTD's Enzo Purrari -- Enzo is a two-show Grand Premier. Beautifully shown by his loving owner, Jim Flanik. Thank you for not only loving your best buddy Enzo so much, but for showing Enzo and obtaining his Grand Premier title. Our 38th Grand Champion is a Grand Champion Risky Bizness/Grand Champion Katy Did son: Grand Champion Jackie BeGood! Our 37th Grand Champion is Grand Champion, Regional Winner Bordeaux LTD's Sunshine Kidd ("Sunny"), who is a Grand Champion Gingerbread Cookie son. Sunny now lives in Taiwan with Frank and Angela! Our 36th Grand Champion is Grand Champion Bordeaux LTD's Genuine Whiskey ("Whiskey"), who now resides in Taiwan with Walter Hsieh of Green Gable Ragdolls. We are so proud to announce that Grand Champion Risky Bizness, DM ("Risky") has attained the title of Distinguished Merit (DM) for producing 15 CFA Grand Champions/Grand Premiers (now he has produced 17)! I am so proud of Risky!

For the show season ending April 24, 2013 (began May 1, 2012), I am proud to announce the following wonderful accomplishments for some of our Bordeaux Ragdolls. Thank you Jim Flanik, loving owner of Carroll Shelby. I am so proud of you and Carroll!!!!

We consistently produce top quality Ragdolls! Many of the Ragdoll babies that I have available for loving pet homes are show quality, because I just can't keep them all to show. I take enormous pride in each and every one of my babies, and am so delighted with the wonderful homes that their loving owners have provided for my babies since I began breeding/showing in 1999. Many of these new parents have come back again (and in some cases again) for their second and third Bordeaux baby! Thank you for your confidence in me and my precious babies and providing them with such wonderful homes.

From day one, my Ragdolls are cuddled, kissed and loved. We (my Ragdolls and I) exhibit exclusively in the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA), the world's oldest and most prestigous cat association. To attain a Grand Champion in CFA is difficult and a most coveted title. I am a CFA Cattery of Excellence (though I hate the word cattery because my babies are raised in my home underfoot, in my bed and are my extended family), and am licensed by Pinellas County, Florida. I am also registered with TICA, and am a member of Ragdoll Fanciers Club International (RFCI), Ragdoll International (RI), Ragdoll Fanciers Worldwide (RFW) and Ragdolls of America Group (RAG; of which I am the Secretary/Membership Officer) and a member of the CFA Ragdoll Breed Council. I am dedicated to producing top quality Ragdolls with wonderful laid-back temperament!

Not to be forgotten is Michelle Clarke (my babysitter when I am traveling to cat shows; I couldn't do this without her loving care of my babies and Brittany, her daughter too)!

WE ARE PROUD TO SAY WE ARE THE HOME OF:
