Learning is Forever

  Now that I have sold my veterinary practice, I want to maintain my license so I can help out another veterinarian if the need arises and do the routine care of my own animals. To keep my license, I need to continue taking approved continuing education. It has never been an issue for me

So Ya Wanna Be a RagaMuffin Breeder?

  A number of years back, I was emailed a handout to help explain to people about the challenges involved with breeding RagaMuffins or any other  cats.

CFA Cattery of Excellence

  I was recently scanning  a RagaMuffin cat page on Facebook. A poster posed a question concerning how to evaluate a breeder. I think that is a valid question. After all, so much is done on line these days. RagaMuffin kittens may be placed on the other side of the country or even on another

  RagaMuffin Crispy is afraid of storms Most of the time when one thinks about a pet being scared during a thunderstorm, it is about dogs. But, cats, too, can be afraid of storms. Between the noise of thunder, the flash of lightning and the change of barometric pressure, it is no wonder
