Description Marty is a Ragdoll male kitty who is 99% holy and 1% other This is my cat/dog. I wanted a dog, prayed for a dog, and got the best cat/dog I could ever ask for. He goes on hikes with me, is more loyal than anyone I’ve every known, and watches me paint. I never knew about this breed until I found Marty. He was a 1 1/2 years old stray, 3 lbs, and wanted to be petted more than fed. I nursed him back to health, mended an abcess on his hind leg, and since then he has been in love wtih me. Apparently, ragdoll cats are known to be more like dogs. Go figure
