The temperment might be a little different since they are also part coonie....hope this helps
Carol--Since you know Roberta can you please help reassure me. This is a big decision for me as adopting a pet means adding a family member...
Here is an e-mail from a friend after I told her about thie kittens---
WHOA---ARE they healthy? What is the reputation of the rescue? Ask to speak with their veterinarian. Call the better business bureau or local SPCA and check up, takess a couple of calls to check on your potential future. Does the $150 cover spay/neuter...if so, cost is fair. What age are the kittens, that is young for both breeds. ARE they socialized? What conditions were they raised in? Kitten mills? (RUNAWAY if so, no matter how cute)
Check them out like you would the breeders. I agree, my heart goes pitter patter when I see them. But please be sure this is the right thing before dashing off if you haven't already.
Now, you guys know I don't own a raggie either, and I have never even met a maine coon, but do they come in black? These just look like three very cute domestic long hairs to me. I don't see raggie in there at all, no mitts, no real "v' s on the face, noses black, maybe?. If it's the ragdoll personality you want, how do you know what you are getting?
I am afraid here.
