Pricing

I do not require a deposit to be on the waiting list. To join the waitlist visit Contact Us. I start taking deposits at 4-6 weeks of age. You can start reserving your kitten at that time. Every pet kitten is $3000 (+ sales tax), every Show/Alter is 3500 (+sales tax) and every Breeder is $5000 (+sales tax).

We do not sell to unknown, or new catteries. You must be in good standing with CFA, TICA and the ragdoll community. We do not offer mentorships at this time, but we are more than willing to direct you the right people. We firmly believe in arming breeders with accurate knowledge to breed ethically if that’s what you choose to do.

What to Expect

Just after making a deposit on your kitten, there will still be several weeks before your kitten can go home. They will visit the office 1-2 times before going home. Kittens usually go home around 12-14 weeks. This length of time allows the kitten to become strong and develop adequate social and grooming skills. You’ll want to set up a designated kitten room for the first few weeks when your kitten goes home. You’ll want to order the same brand of Pawtree food (wet/dry) at least for the first year so your health guarantee will stay valid. All of our kittens grow up to learn how to use a litter robot (which we highly recommend), automatic water and food dispenser. You should have your own vet appointment scheduled within the first week of your kitten going home to get acquainted with your vet and do an over all wellness check up under your care. Your kitten will go home with registration and altered. No exceptions for pet homes.

Growth Process

When you purchase a kitten raised by us, you can be assured each mother is well cared for, pampered, has regular vet check ups and fed nutritious high quality food. All kittens are raised in our bedroom. From day 1 till week 12-14 your kitten is being handled daily.

Week 1: Initially begin with short intermissions of petting all areas of the kitten’s body softly (paw pads, belly, tail, around the face).

Week 2: We gradually start to extend the holding & frequency time and continue to expose kittens to various day to day noises.

Week 3: Kittens eyes are now fully open and kittens are more comfortable being held longer. At this time I encourage my nieces and nephews to carry a kitten around the house or while playing on their ipad’s. I extend the duration of holding time.

Week 4: Kittens are now comfortable being held for minutes to hours at a time. I will take a kitten to the backyard with me and allow them to meet the dogs and puppies and carry them around the house with me. They get to experience music, vaccum, kids talking, dogs barking.

Week 5-8: Kittens are exploring and becoming very playful. I now take them to different rooms of the house to explore and encourage cuddling on the bed.

Week 8-12: Kittens are still being held daily, kissed very frequently, interreacting with puppies and dogs I bring into the bedroom. I make sure all kittens have acquired appropriate grooming & litter box habits and are outgoing & ready to adjust to their new homes.

What Qualifies as Show Quality?

A show quality ragdoll or kitten meets all standards of the ragdoll breed by Cat Fancier Association and The International Cat Association guidelines. Click to view: The Ragdoll Breed Standard. You can see a list of all traits that are qualified/disqualified. We mark a kitten as ‘show quality’ it means it has the potential to show with no disqualify marks. There is no guarantee on how a kitten will fare or its ability to show. Some cats do not like the show ring or travel associated with it! Some kittens may fare better than others in the ring or be favored more so by particular judges. A show kitten is other wise ‘perfect’.  We price pet, show & breeder kittens differently.

What Qualifies as Breeding Quality?

A breeding quality ragdoll kitten in my opinion, meets all the qualifications of a show quality ragdoll + plus extra ordinary traits that will bless the future of the line. This kitten is usually the biggest, prettiest and most outgoing kitten in the group. These traits all help ensure quality bred kittens. A breeding quality kitten does not carry any known disease, affected by any disease, aliments, PG (Patricia Gucci ancestor) in their lines or any other faults that would not improve and maintain the ragdoll breed. A kitten sold as breeding quality may not always end up being used for breeding due to changed temperament traits or physical description. Basically, a breeding quality kitten needs to be the best of the best!
