Complicated Litter Plans

  I recently bred iCandy Toffee Crunch to Adoremuffins Walnut. I think they will make awesome RagMuffin kittens. But the expected litter has a downside. You see, Toffee has type B blood. She is my only cat with this. Most cats are type A, some AB. In order to safely breed a type B female

Planning a Breeding Program

  Putting together and developing a RagaMuffin breeding program is much more than buying a male and a female and allowing them to mate. There are a number of different factors to consider.

Nougat Goes Back To Work

  It’s been a while since RagaMuffin Nougat had a job. Actually, he hasn’t worked since before COVID hit. But, that changed last week. The animal talent agent emailed. It was a day both Nougat and I were available ( honestly, his schedule is pretty flexible). So, on his behalf, I accepted the work. Nougat

Sudden Kitten Illness

I got up one morning and proceeded to do my chores as usual. First things include letting the dog out, feeding the dog, and then going through the house feeding cats and scooping boxes. When I got to the nursery upstairs, I noticed right away that Gertrude’s solo kitten was not up in her play

North Atlantic Regional Weekend

  Last Friday I hit the road in a packed vehicle with RagaMuffin iCandy  Raisinette. It was the annual trip to the CFA North Atlantic Regional cat show and banquet. Believe me when I say it is a big deal in the cat world. First, the show is amazing. The decorations and rosettes are always

iCandy RagaMuffin Parasite Control

The first of the month is a big day here at iCandy. Every month for years. It’s the day I treat all animals to prevent parasites. The dog gets her heartworm pill along with her flea and tick medicine. The cats are on a program to meet their needs. The RagaMuffin males and neutered pets

Is My Cat a RagaMuffin?

  One of the most common comments I see on Facebook is a cat owner posting a picture of their beloved kitty and asking if it is a RagaMuffin. The answer is virtually always going to be no. Same with other breeds like Maine Coons. Unless you go to a breeder for a pedigreed cat,
