I learned that Denny Dayton passed away in April and that he attended a TICA cat show in January, so he was active in the cat fancy almost to the end.
Denny and Laura Dayton answering my correspondence when I wrote The Friendly Floppy Ragdoll Cat, meant so much to me. I mean here is a couple that was so influential in getting the Ragdoll breed recognized and they had long since retired, but Denny took the time to call me, and Laura emailed me.
Hopefully, they are now reunited together with all the Ragdolls they loved. What a pioneering couple they both were in shaping the Ragdoll breed.
