Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Reserving a kitten is first-come-first-serve. A non-refundable deposit of $200.00 must be paid before a kitten is considered reserved. This can be done, via Zelle, ApplePay or Venmo for convince or other arrangements can be made. If you use Venmo Goods and Services, a 10% fee will be added to cover costs.
We typically will put you on the waitlist if no kittens are available, or if you want a kitten from a certain queen or a certain sex. While the color is important, it is equally important that you also get to know their personality before reserving your kitten. Please Let us know what kitten you are interested in and tell us a little bit about your family, home and experience cats and anything that would help us make a perfect match for you. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We keep our website updated about kitten availability.
You can pick up your kitten between 10-14 weeks of age. They will need to be eating solid foods, using their cat box, and be able to to leave their mom. They also need a clean bill of health from their veterinarian. These are requirements that need to be met so that they are ensured the best start to life that they can get. It also ensures that they have that bonding time with their mother so that other problems don't occur because of being separated from their mother too soon. We want the best quality care for your kitten that it can have. If you need to adjust your pickup time, after these items have been met, please let us know so that we can adjust accordingly.
Your kitten will come with a 2-year health guarantee, including free from the Ragdoll HCM gene, age appropriate vaccinations, complete deworming, Microchipped and pre-enrolled in AKC’s Lifetime recovery program with lifetime support, small bag of kitten food they are on, a can of the wet food they are on, a few of their favorite toys and a blanket with their mothers scent on it to help them adjust to their new environment and TICA papers upon proof of spay/neuter.
The coat is soft and semi-long with a limited undercoat. They still shed a little and do require brushing once a week, but it is less shedding and matting than other long hair cats. Every animal with hair will shed. Our Ragdolls love to be brushed and even purr while we're doing it. We Also require that you NOT declaw your Ragdoll. They need their claws in case they ever get outside, and that will render them defenseless. However, we clip their nails about once a every week or so and it is quite easy to do so, as they are very docile and always let us clip their nails with ease. We can even show you when get here, if needed. They rarely need a bath. However, if they do need one, they aren't hard to bathe, as our do not claw, or bite while being bathed and are quite use to the water. Some Ragdolls love the water and go out of their way to get in the shower or bath with you. Our queen, Valkyrie loves to bat the water at us, when we are washing the dishes.
Because these cats are amazingly sweet and desire human interaction, the Ragdoll cat would do very well with families and children. They will have been introduced to our other family cats and cavaliers to get them accustomed to other types of animals. However, if you do have other animals, you need to introduce them slowly, for both your kitten as well as your other family pet. This will decrease both stress and tension within the animals.
Most Ragdolls have blue eyes or a shade of blue. If it is not a purebred Ragdoll, it may not have the true, strikingly beautiful blue, that is a characteristic trait of the Ragdoll. They may have green or golden eyes.
Colors: Ragdolls are a blue-eyed, pointed (darker face, legs, tail and ears) cat. come in 8 colors: Seal, Blue, Chocolate, Lilac, Red, Cream Cinnamon or Fawn . They may be Tortie and may have Lynx stripes (Tabby markings).
As a kitten, all ragdolls' color will continue to deepen as the mature until about 4 years of age.
Their colorpoints should be dark points and a lighter color on body with a definite contrast between body and color point.
Mitted: Pointed with white paws (mitts) on front feet, White "boots" on hind feet, white chin and white belly stripe.
Bicolor: White chest, legs, stomach and ruff with an inverted V on the face.
Most will say the lilac is the most rare, followed by the flame point Ragdolls. These colors are very important as they posses a rare set of genes that give these remarkable colors.
We specialize in the lilac and blue currently.
Absolutely not! We love every single kitten and we want what is best for each one. We give them unconditional love from the time they are born and they are apart of our family, until they go home with you! They have 2 of their own cat condos and 3 towers, several litter boxes with natural pellet litter to encourage them to go in them and then they transition to immediate odor control clumping litter which makes clean up a piece of cake, and we make sure each has equal attention and playtime with all of us. We get them use to loud sounds such a vacuum and they have a radio and an Alexa on to get them used to other sounds and music when we are out of the kitten room.
Some say one is better than the other, but it really is your preference. They both are very sweet, loyal and loving members of your family. Both are extremely social and will follow you around and greet you at the door and can even learn to play fetch or sit for a treat. Bot are amazing with children. They are the gentle "giants" of the cat world.
Because they are such a social and gentle breed, the answer is almost always yes. However, you still need to introduce them slowly. Make sure they have a proper amount of time to see and smell your other animals, before close contact happens and always watch their interactions until you feel ok with them being alone together. It is still a kitten's instinct to hiss or cry at first, as it is a "new experience." Just assure them it is ok. They will learn that everyone is a part of the family.
Also, because it is in their instincts, always keep a close eye on your cat with a bird, fish or other small animals, because they may think they are a toy and want to play with it.
After your initial deposit to reserve a kitten, we accept cash, Zelle, Apple Pay or Venmo. We are sorry as we can no longer accept Cashier's Checks, Money Orders, PayPal, or Personal Checks due to fraudulent scams .
Please keep in mind, that if your payment is something other than cash, it needs to be sent at least 2 weeks before delivery/pickup, as other forms of payment must clear the before the kitten will go to their forever home.
It is very easy to meet the kittens. We can do a FaceTime or Zoom phone call with you. This is usually done at around 8 weeks. We can talk sooner if you have any questions.
At this time, we are limiting visits to those who have put a deposit and want to choose the kitten at 8 weeks & after 10 weeks if they are paying cash at pickup only when kittens are ready to come home, to keep our cats and everyone else healthy. Thank you for understanding.
When your kitten has passed the 4 tests to go home, you may come pick them up from our home, or we can meet in a neutral meeting place if discussed beforehand. owe also will deliver 20 miles free of charge. Anything extra will need to be discussed and agreed upon, prior to delivery service.
You will need a cat carrier to take it home in, both a food and water bowl and a litter box. It is highly recommended that you have 1 more litter box than the amount of cats that you have. We found this to be extremely true. Also if you have more than one-story, it is recommended you have a litter box for every story your kitten will be allowed on. The same goes for a bigger 1-story house. 1 litter box for each end of the box, unless you have 1 in the middle. Most times kittens need one closer to the area they are in so that they are set up for success. They will also need a scratching post for their scratching needs and they are less expensive at stores such as Walmart, Ross, Big Lots, Amazon, etc. You can also buy a cat tower, condo with the scratching post. Cats love to be up high and if you do not give them their own space they will find high spaces on their own. They like to be able to feel safe and look down on what is happening. (We currently have 2 at the moment for our big cats and 3 for our kittens). They will also need a grooming comb/brush. We highly recommend the self cleaning slicker brush and furminator or the demoting comb. All 3 can be found on Amazon, reasonably priced. We will tell you what kind of kitten food they are on and give you a small bag of it with the name written on it, if you chose to purchase more. Otherwise, you will need to slowly incorporate what you would like to feed them into what they are currently on, so they do not get an upset stomach. Cats love free-flowing water bowl as well. It is a myth cats don't like to drink water. We have 2 X-large water bowls and 4 free-flowing water, as our ragdolls love to drink water.
Also, while it is not required, it is encouraged to have some kind of Cat bed or hiding home for them. They love going here and feel safe. It is very common to find your kitten here, if they are not following you around!
We typically do not ship our Ragdolls before 12 weeks, and they prefer to be shipped in pairs, so they feel safe. These kittens are still quite tiny, so we are looking out for your kittens health and welfare, as shipping puts an extreme amount of stress on these babies. Especially if there are dogs or other animals on board that will bark, etc.
We can ship within the Continental United States starting at $750. with any major airport. Delivery nanny services are also available, pending airport or other service including if door to door delivery is needed at an additional fee.
All kittens are sold with limited registration (pet only) TICA papers. (You can still show with these papers.) You will need to provide proof from your veterinarian that your kitten has been spayed/neutered before we send/release their TICA papers.
The price of our Lilacs & Blues is $1,500.
We give these kittens unlimited love and the best quality care available, as we only have a few litters a year. Because of this, you may request to be on our waiting list if you want to have pick of the litter.
If the kitten is ready to leave the house, and you cannot take your kitten, it is $25. a day for boarding fees after 72 hours of purchase, unless arrangements are made prior.
If you surrender the kitten/cat back to us for any reason, then the health guarantee and the contract will be null and void immediately, and all said rights to the kitten shall be forfeited. A kitten/cat must first undergo a full examination by a licensed veterinarian and sent to us and we will confirm this with the examining veterinarian to make sure it is healthy before entering our cattery. This is for the safety of the other cats here. We cannot take any risks of the kitten/cat infecting our animals in any way. After the kitten has been surrendered, we do not allow visiting rights with the kitten, as it will confuse them, as such, we will not place them back into the your care at any point in the future. It is for the welfare of the kitten.
