Quality Ragdoll kittens & cats for sale from reputable breeders
What is the most important factor to consider when buying a new Ragdoll kitten? Of course, it is the health of the kitten. All of the Best Ragdoll Breeders DNA their Ragdolls for the HCM gene. Because all of our cats are neg/neg, we are sure that the kittens will also be negative for this deadly heart disease. Before kittens go to their new homes, they receive 2 FVRCP vaccinations, will be spayed/neutered, and are registered with TICA. Every breeder that qualifies to be a Best Ragdoll Breeder shows their cats in TICA and sometines CFA so you know that kittens are bred to the highest Ragdoll standards. If one breeder does not have the kitten you are looking for, they will refer you to one of the other breeders. These are breeders you can trust.
Ragdolls do enjoy having a good book read to them. Here is Marilyn Barsaleau’s Barsadolls Sir Eli, the official Library Cat.
Ragdolls are very special and are adored by their owners, because of their beautiful looks and their sweet, loving temperament. Babies are bred for health, personality and that special Ragdoll personality. Their reputation as the perfect pet for families, kids, dogs, and seniors is well deserved. If you need a pet to sit in your laundry basket, or help you type, or play fetch and then sleep with you, then you need a Ragdoll.
What about “flopping” that you hear so much about? Not exactly true. Many, or even most Ragdolls, are very relaxed when you pick them up but even if they flop as a baby, they may change their mind about it as an adult.
It is important to remember they are cats and they do the normal cat things so please keep that in mind. They are not trainable like a dog.
Which brings us to –
Be careful of websites that advertise kittens “ON SALE” or offer “RARE” Ragdolls. Accepted and recognized Ragdolls in Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) and The International Cat Association (TICA) MUST be blue eyed colorpoint cats (with or without white). Mink colors with aqua eyes or blue eyes are NOT accepted or recognized and may not be shown as Ragdolls. Solid colors with green or gold eyes are NOT accepted or recognized and may not be shown as Ragdolls. Review the Ragdoll Breed Standard in CFA or TICA
