Customer Question
I purchased a Retire...

I purchased a Retire 3yr female ( Papered, TICA, Pedgreed) Rag Doll. I has been a few weeks here. No Dogs, No other cats, quiet and just myself. When I do see her. I load on a lot of Love; but, then the hiding.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the cat's name and age?

Breeder told me to have her seen by Vet in 72 hours. Thumbs up

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?

Her name is ***** ***** 3 year old Show Cat now retired from showing.
