ADORING RAGDOLL KITTENS
OVER MANY YEARS I HAVE BRED GENERATIONS OF CHAMPIONS AND LOVABLE PETS HERE AT ADORING RAGDOLLS, PLEASE VIEW MY SHOW PAGE AND TESTIMONIAL PAGE FOR MORE DETAILS. NEW OWNERS OFTEN BUY TWO KITTENS OR COME BACK FOR ANOTHER, AS ONE IS USUALLY NOT ENOUGH. RAGDOLLS ARE IDEAL PETS FOR TODAYS BUSY HOUSEHOLDS, BUT DO LOVE COMPANY AND ARE ALWAYS HAPPY TO SEE YOU, OFTEN WAITING AT THE DOOR TO GREET YOU AS YOU COME HOME, IN MY OPINION THEY ARE THE PERFECT COMPANION.
PLEASE GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE FOR COST OF A KITTEN AND DETAILS OF WHAT KITTEN WILL NEED IN PREPARATION FOR A NEW HOME.
PLEASE CONTACT ME TELLING ME ABOUT YOUR PET HISTORY AND LIFESTYLE I WILL THEN ASSESS WHETHER I HAVE THE RIGHT KITTEN FOR YOU. I NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE COMMITED TO OWNING A CAT AND THAT YOU HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT IT CAREFULLY. IT WILL BE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTACT ME EVERY 4 WEEKS ONCE THE KITTENS ARE BORN IN ORDER TO KEEP REGISTERING AN INTEREST, TO REMAIN ON WAITING LIST AND TO ARRANGE VIEWINGS. ON YOUR REQUEST I CAN SEND PHOTOS AND UPDATES ONCE YOU SELECT A KITTEN
ALL MY KITTENS ARE HCM AND PKD NEGATIVE FOR THE KNOWN GENE SINCE 2009. I HAVE BEEN BREEDING RAGDOLLS FOR 14 YEARS NOW AND HAVE MANY TESTIMONIALS FROM VERY HAPPY NEW PET OWNERS SEE MY TESTIMONIAL PAGE FOR DETAILS.
THERE WILL BE A £100 DEPOSIT REQUIRED TO HOLD THE KITTEN OF YOUR CHOICE WHICH IS NON REFUNDABLE, UNLESS I CANNOT PROVIDE THE KITTEN OF YOUR CHOICE.
RAGDOLLS ARE VERY PEOPLE ORIANTATED AND ARE GENERALLY VERY LAID BACK AND EASY TO LIVE WITH, AND A REAL DELIGHT TO SHARE YOUR HOME AND FAMILY LIFE WITH, BUT THEY DO REQUIRE STABILITY, ROUTINE AND LOTS OF LOVE. KITENS SHOULD NOT BE LEFT ALONE FOR LONG CONSISTANT PERIODS OF TIME, IF YOU WORK AWAY FROM HOME ON A REGULAR BASIS YOU WILL NEED TWO KITTENS TO KEEP EACH OTHER COMPANY, BUT EVEN THEN IT MAY NOT BE APPROPRIATE, SO PLEASE CONTACT ME TO DISCUSS, AS I TREAT EACH ENQUIRY INDIVIDUALLY BASED ON YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES.
If you would like to view or discuss purchasing a kitten for pet, show or breed then please contact me by email anytime or by phone eves and weekends, telling me about yourself, your pet history and your lifestyle.
I breed the full range of patterns: Bi colour, mitted & colour pointed in seal, blue, chocolate, lilac, cream, red & tortie colours. The majority of my cats are referred to in breeding terms as Traditional, however I do also have some lovely non traditional Ragdolls as I am working on the Chocolate and Lilac lines at the moment.
A non refundable deposit of £100 will secure the kitten of your choice, a kitten cannot be held without a deposit. The remaining balance will need to be paid either by internet money transfer prior to pick up, or in cash when the kitten is picked up to take home.
I ask that a photo of your kitten be sent to me at 6 months, one year and three years old so that I can see how they turned out as I am always monitoring the look of the ragdolls I breed and as most of them go to new pet homes I need this photographic information. I am also always happy to hear from owners of my kittens no matter how longs its been.
I also very occasionally have older Ragdoll cats that are in need of re homing and will be neutered/spayed before leaving me. The cost of a adult retired breeding cat is between £150 and £350 plus castration/spay cost. and these adults make loving and loyal pets and really appreciate their new pet homes and blossom with the one to one attention that they receive.
Ragdolls on active register
I don't sell breeding cats very often and only let cats go on the GCCF active register that I would be happy to keep myself for breeding. I do not sell breed cats that are not up to standard as this really does nothing for the future of the Breed. Breeding good quality Ragdolls costs me thousands of pounds a year, I spend hundreds of hours of my spare time every year caring for my cats and kittens and therefore need to try to cover my costs by selling the kittens I cannot keep.
Breed queen potential kittens cost from £850 upwards depending on weather kitten is show/breed or slightly missmarked breed quality. Please note costs will be higher for exports outside of the UK to cover additional costs and time incurred. and reflect the Country's pricing of the breed. Chocolates & Lilacs are slightly dearer due to the required DNA testing in line with the GCCF registration policy, Breed girls will have workable restriction to protect them, for more details please ask. Please note that I believe in treating people with entegrity and value everyones autonomy and ask the same in return from people that buy my kittens as unfortunately I have found some breeders can be very negative towards other breeders for obvious reasons !
All my kittens are HCM normal and alongside GCCF breeding policy all my new breed cats from May 2016 are micro chipped ,have DNA taken by my vet to prove HCM normal status . I tested all my of Ragdolls for HCM years before it was a requirement so parents can be provided, as HCM and PKD are genetic there is no way they can pass on a gene they dont have to their kittens, its as simple as that.
Please ask for cost and details of purchacing a Stud cat. All my breed cats go with the restriction that they are to be retired at the end of their breeding time with their new owner and NOT sold on or swopped for breeding on the active register, again this is to ensure that any kittens I have sold on the active register, get the opportunity to retire and enjoy life just being a beloved pet either with their current owner or in a new pet home, which I would expect to be informed about.
Pet to Show quality Kittens cost from £600 to £650
For Breed kitten prices please contact me
Kittens are wormed as required with Panacur paste and flea treated as a precaution before going to new homes. Kittens will be fully vacinated and health checked by my vet twice. They will go to their new homes with: pedigree's, care plans, kitten pack, 4 weeks insurance and a kitten sales agreement, which will need to be signed by both parties and conditions of sale agreed. You will also need to agree to have your kitten castrated or spayed by the relevent age. Pet kittens must not be bred from and this will have to be agreed within the sales agreement as a condition of sale, pet kittens will be registered with the GCCF on the non active register. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL PET CATS SHOULD BE CASTRSTED/SPAYED, THIS IF FOR GOOD HEALTH AS THERE WILL BE LESS RISK OF HORMONE RELATED HEALTH ISSUESI N YOUR PET. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT FOR A BALANCED TEMPERAMENT. CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING CONTANTLY FRUSTRATED EVERY FEW WEEKS, THIS LEADS TO CATS SPRAYING, STRAYING AND BECOMING AGGRESSIVE. A CASTRATED/SPAYED CAT IS MUCH HAPPIER AND CONTENT CAT.
I do not export pet kittens and must be informed if any pet kittens sold by me are due to leave the country as these kittens must be castrated or spayed before they travel abroad and this clause forms part of the kitten agreement.
LIST OF THINGS TO BUY FOR NEW KITTEN
You will need to bring cat carrier with you to transport your kitten home safely. You will also need to have purchased all the items bellow to ensure you can care for your kitten appropriatly from the time he /she arrives in thier new home.
Cat Carrier - Medium in size
CAT TREE with CAT BED within it is cool for cats, cat shelving is also great if you have more than one indoor cat.
CAT TOYS SUCH AS - CAT KNIP TOYS, WANDS, LAZERS, CAT MAZE, PAPER BAGS, BOXES, PAPER BALLS ETC.
CAT COMB AND SLICKER BRUSH Groom twice weekly to keep down malting on furnishings
Nail Clippers to clip the tips of kittens nails every 8 weeks. Look for info online, if in doubt ask your vet to show you
Important information on kitten care and items needed
litter scoop, nappy bags for soiled litter, or put down toilet and flush
You can purchase wood pellets litter (treads less around the house), I also use or Chick Crumb which I buy from my local livestock food supplier, I mix in some clumping litter with the pellets as this makes it more comfortable for you cats feet and makes removel of waste easier with less waste. I fill litter tray one to two inches deep - nappy sacks for soiled litter - scoop and turn over litter with scoop at least three times a day, or whenever your cat uses it. Wash your cats litter tray with watered down bleach. 1 cap of bleach to over a half filled bucket of warm water. then rince with clean water and dry before putting clean litter back in. If you scoop often, when cat uses it, the tray won't smell. Always keep litter trays clean, you would'nt want to stand in your waste and niether do your cats. If you have more than one adult cat you will need a much larger litter tray or preferably two medium in size placed in different locations.
Seperate water and food bowls, away from the litter tray
I have been feeding Iams Kitten Food until one year old, I then change to Iams Mulitcat and also feed Royal Canin Sensible and Ragdoll Dry Food. depending on Adults needs, I recommend that you keep your kitten on what I've been feeding for the first few weeks to avoid tummy upsets. Remember place Food and water on the other side of room or when older in a different room, like us cats dont like too tiolet and eat in the same place.
I also feed Tuna, white fish, sardines and chicken etc at least 3 times a week, more often as kittens, you can also add some vegitables occationally. Also add vitiminand mineral supplement called SF50 to this wet food (purchaced from any good pet shop or online) A lot of Kitten pouches contain sugar in some form, which can be highly addictive to your kitten and cat and does not contain much goodness, a bit like eating junk food every day, so when feeding pouches add fish or chicken regularly
All my kittens are raised with dogs around them, Chico was the peacemaker in my house and loved the kittens and any trouble between overprotective Mums Chico would sort out, unfortunately he passed away due to a heart murmur in March 2016 at 12 years of age and is sadly missed, God Bless
