Ragdoll Cat Price

Caymus in Recycle Bin 300x204 Ragdoll Cat Price

Caymus in Recycle Bin

A long time ago (or it seems like it), I wrote a blog post about the Ragdoll cat price.  It does vary quite a bit depending on the potential show and breeder quality of the cat in question.

I thought it would be fun to show the prices of the Ragdoll cats my family has purchased:

  1. Rags, purchased in 1989 with his brother Cosby – $350/ea
  2. Caymus and Murphy, purchased in 2004 – $600/ea (reduced by $50 each because my parents were buying 2)
  3. Charlie and Trigg, purchased in 2009 – $800/each (reduced by $50 each because I was buying 2)

Here is a break down of the prices of Ragdoll kittens that I have found:

  • Pet (Alter) Quality – approximately USD$375- USD $850 (some breeders charge more for females due to the fact that spaying costs more than neutering, also some breeders will charge more for rare or non-traditional color patterns, like Torties , Creams, Lilacs and Flames)
  • Show (Alter) Quality – approximately USD$600- USD $1000+
  • Breeder Quality – approximately USD$1200- USD $1800+
  • Show/Breeder Quality – approximately USD$1500- USD $1800+

To see an explanation of what each quality means, please visit Buying a Ragdoll cat.

How much did you pay for your Ragdoll kitten/cat?  What year was it?  Are you a breeder – do these prices pretty much match your ranges?

Really though – the question about Ragdoll Cat Price should ALSO include the total cost of a cat in 1 year’s time. A kitten can be quite expensive because of vaccinations and what not.  A cat can still be expensive because of food, litter, vet bills, etc.  Do you have an idea of what you budget for your kitty every year?

    Dusty was $650 in 2006. His brother Stormy was $100 – because he had a rough start in life, and she couldn’t guarantee his health – I call him my discount kitty. :) He’s been very healthy, so I got a good deal by taking a chance on him! Denali was $675 in 2011. All from the same breeder.

  2. Julie says:

    Mooshu was $850 in 2011…and I was told he was fixed…but after noticing what one can not help but notice in a boys “area”…I found out he wasn’t!! Luckily the breeder acknowledged her error when I contacted her & reimbursed us for the cost! Over his life time (estimating 18 HEALTHY years) on food alone I expect to spend $17,280!!! Not including litter, baggies, toys (lots of toys) or treats…or even vet visits!! Man I LOVE him!

  3. Jerri K says:

    I forgot to talk about the kitty budget every year! I always have $1000 in a savings account for veterinary bills (which we have already blown through this year with Dusty!) With three Ragdolls, who are now eating canned food exclusively, I estimate I will be spending approximately $300 a month on their food alone. Another $60 or so on litter and toys.

    • Julie says:

      Jerri…Since I just switched Mooshu over to ONLY wet food…I am going broke!! It’s about $80 a month!! I can’t even imagine THREE kitten mouths to feed!

      • Jerri K says:

        You’re telling me – and I can’t bring myself to feed them friskies or other low end food, so most of what I buy is about $1 a can/pouch, and I open at least 6 cans a day. Most are 3 oz cans, but I will have to look into larger cans to try and save some money soon. They are worth it, but I have had to cut back on a few things like Starbucks and eating out!

        • Julie says:

          To be honest…When I first got Moosh…I thought “nothing but the best for my boy!!” But he didn’t do well on “the best”…he had poopy butt (see my poop story on here) When I asked TWO different vets they both said I am not a bad mom if I feed him what his tummy can tolerate…that just so happens to be Fancy Feast 3oz cans +/- $0.60/can & ProPlan 3oz cans +/- $0.80/can & he gets 3-4 can a day! But hey…no poopy butt! :-)

          • Jerri K says:

            Well, I know Stormy would not be happy without his Wellness Pouches, but I do give them the Pro Plan Selects (a little pricier than the regular Pro Plan at about 95 cents a can.

            I will feed them anything that doesn’t have corn, wheat or gluten of any kind in it … I prefer grain free, but try not to be obsessive about it! I think there are some flavors of Fancy Feast that meat that criteria. I might need to try a few!

  4. Julie says:

    Jenny…weird…I got an email with your reply but it’s not showing up on here…Her excuse was that her husband took the wrong kitten in to get fixed!! She seemed a little overwhelmed with all the kittens & her day job…she came highly recommended though…and was very sweet & apologetic…she was actually in tears. But still…not at all acceptable as far as I am concerned! She did call me weekly to check on him & sent me a sweet card apologizing & being grateful that I got him & was being a good mom to her baby…so it’s not that I think she didn’t care…I just think she lost track! UGH!

  5. Julie says:

    Ha! It won’t let me reply to our convo any more Jerri!
    But…I have never heard of the “selects”…Sounds GREAT! I will see if my Petsmart carries that! And it’s funny you mention Wellness…THAT is what I first started him on but it was too rich for his lil tummy! Mooshu loves the turkey & beef & chicken slices & morsel flavors of Fancy Feast…get this…He is a SNOB & won’t go near the fishy flavors! He also used to only LOVE the Classic type…now he would rather starve than eat them…Thank god for the proplan with rice or with pasta flavors…LOVES those! But I am curious how he would like the Selects…Thanks for the idea!

    • Jerri K says:

      My boys don’t really like the wellness cans – but they love the Wellness Healthy Indulgences Pouches, especially Tuna. It’s a chunky food with gravy.

      That’s funny – the CLASSIC Fancy Feast flavors are the only ones that are gluten free and lower carb!

      I do get the Pro Plan Selects at PetSmart! They are usually right by the regular Pro Plan, but the labels have more white on them. Different PetSmart stores carry different flavors. It is more pate-like – no gravy or chunks. My boys especially like the Turkey, Beef, Chicken and of course Tuna. Jenny just posted a link for a buy one get one free coupon – check that out!

      • Julie says:

        Hahaha! Leave to my cat to not like the ONE that’s good for him!! I will see if the also have the Wellness pouches and try that…but not the tuna…god forbid a cat likes fish! Hahaha! And YES! I just printed the coupon! Every little bit helps!

        • Jerri K says:

          Try the tuna pouches – it’s not really tuna-y if that makes sense. It has turkey and turkey broth and turkey liver as well. Sometimes I buy the other flavors, but I buy the tuna by the case!

  6. lisa staffa says:

    I bought my Louie in May 2002 for $550 b/c he was the runt of the litter and the last one left, no one wanted him. Plus his white triangle on his face was off center. But he is awesome either way. At the time raggies were in the range of $700-$950, so i got a deal

  7. Coinneach says:

    I paid nothing for my Charlie; her breeder simply needed to rehome her and wasn’t worried about payment. I spend about $150 per year on her at the vet (exams and such). All three of my cats eat the same food, Wilderness, which costs about $40 per month.

    They work with my autistic son.

    Yes, I’m a breeder.

    I spend so much money in a year at the vets office, they gave me the code to the back door!!

    Last year $7,862.50 for all

    Neuter at the vet is $350, spay is $450. At the clinic it is $65 each.

    Shows are entry fee, travel, lodging, food. Can be $1000 in a weekend. Not including professional photos taken at the show.

    Food is bought in bulk. 5 bags of 20# plus. Buy 4, get 1 free. Every week.

    Grooming takes hours! A bit different for show cats vs pets. Pets are brushed every day, show cats are bathed, primped, fluffed.
    All have their teeth brushed every day and all are pampered.

    Don’t forget the kitty liter. Total of 10 boxes that are scooped twice a day and totally dumped, washed, dried and refilled every week. That’s 10 bags of liter/week at about $10/bag. I’m ready to potty train the cats!

    But there is NO price that equals the love they give, the companionship, the snuggle factor.

    I just wouldn’t have it any other way.

    I should mention that I have a full time job outside of the house!!

    My 2,000 sq ft beach house is immaculate, does not smell like a liter box, the cats have free run of the home and no one sprays on the walls, destroys the furniture or is declawed. They are trained, with kindness and love. My sons and I all work with them all of the time!!

    If someone is breeding for money, they’re not taking very good care of their cats, because until everything is said and done, I don’t make money.

    BUT….I wouldn’t have it any other way!!

  9. Sue L. says:

    Molly and Daisy were each $500 in 2009 from the same breeder. They have the same parents but are from two different litters. Molly is seven months older than Daisy. (Like potato chips, you can’t have just one! ) They seem to do best on just dry food- Iams Proactive Health. When they were younger I did give them canned foods. They were very fussy but their favorite was Science Diet, but it didn’t always agree with them, so it is just the dry food now.

  10. Sharon says:

    More expenses!!!
    I forgot to mention microchiping is anywhere from free (with spay/neuter clinic) to $50 at the vet. Also, pet insurance for all breeders/show cats at $32 (Queens) to $34(Kings) per cat.
    Of course there’s treats and toys. Roughly $150/month.
    Each has a bed $10-15 and a carrier $50-70.
    I have 2 pet strollers $50 each.
    Then, there’s the Sturdi show cage (I think)$250, the drapes and backdrop $200. The red wagon to haul everything for show $100, the brushes, combs, deshedder, shampoo, and rinse $30 (but lasts for months).
    The big red First Aid/Earthquake duffle bag that I got at the Orange County Fair Pet Expo for $85 x 4.
    One in every car/truck and one in the house at the door (for quick grabbing in case of evacuation).

    They have the complete line of ‘Kittywalk Systems’ outdoor playground $700, the cargo cages (3 for the truck) @$100 each, the closet cages (which are the coolest things-they have long straps for the clothes bar and hang under your jackets/shirts and they can rock in them or just hang out in them).
    BTW Kittywalk Systems were developed by a married couple who are owned by Ragdolls!! I get mine on Ebay!

    They have 4-7 foot towers- 6 total about $125-$200 each, the scratching posts (Kong) $50 x 4, the Comfort Zone plug ins $25 x 4 each month. The service animal registration, vest, patches $100 each x 4 (so far), the Drinkwell fountains $20 (sale) x3, $70 x 2. The replacement filters $12 month. Their food bowls (which match my Pfaltzgraff Tea Rose dishes) $30 each x 7 (and replaced every one of them). The special pet hair vacuum cleaner $350, the electricity to run all of these toys (bill looks like the national debt).
    TICA registration $14 (I think), and $50 for 5 generation pedigree, CFA registration (can’t remember how much that was)

    I’m sure there’s more I’ll think of later. Ha!!

  11. Teresa says:

    I just got my little baby “floppycat”, Olivia Grace on Feburary 11, 2012. She came
    with her 3 sets of shots, deworming, and was spayed. Her price was $900. She is a blue sepia/mitted. If I remember correctly, the classic color ragdolls were about $100 less. The lady was super kind and told me up front that she would help me with payment if I needed it. Since we lived about 3 hours apart, she brought Grace all but an 1 hour away from our house so we could pick her up while her sister was going to another person in the same area.. The breeder offered to bring her all the way here, but it was no problem driving the hour away – in fact – it was really fun because it snowed! Actually got to visit the cattery to pick her out, and it was immaculately clean and sparkling. All kitties were well and playful. She has been a complete joy and can’t imagine life before her now.
    As far as food, she is on Royal Canin #36 for kittens dry food, but will try to slowly switch her over to Wellness cans (used a groupon from PetFlow), as soon as possible since I am not comfortable with all the data that is suggesting that dry food is either causing or highly contributing to renal failure. Have had a number of cats over my life and more than half of them have died from this horrible disease. Have switched over all of my adult cats to canned food and they seem like they are healthier because of it. One cat I have right now has renal failure and she is one that ate the dry food for a long time before the data was made available. Yes, the canned food is expensive, (I use 4-6 cans per day) , but our babies definitely are worth it. Anyone with any suggestions of how to switch her over to canned food, would be most appreciated. Thanks.

  12. Tessa says:

    I paid $550 for Tessa in 2005, she is not a show cat but a family cat. She had been spayed and had her 1st set of shots. She was 16 weeks old when I was able to pick her up from the Breeder. She is a blue bi-color. For her 6th birthday I purchased her animal health insurance at $20 per month. She eats both dry and wet food – Royal Canin Hairball (about $18 a bag) and Blue Buffalo Wilderness ($25 per bag) her wet is Wellness Helath Indulgenc at $1.23 a pouch. I’ve tried to switch her entirely to wet but she really will not eat the foos she licks the juices from the wet.
    She has been so well worth any money I have had to pay for her; she’s just like a child to me.

  13. JL says:

    I’m looking at getting a kitten here in Italy from a reputable breeder. The price for the one I want is 1,000 EURO. It includes sterilization, vaccines, pedigree, and health papers.This price is higher than what I am seeing on here but maybe because it is Europe and the sterilization fee of course. Does this sound reasonable? Thanks so much!

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Jessica, for me, the cost of the kitten doesn’t really matter if I know I like the breeder, know that the parents have been tested for disease and the kitten looks healthy and most of all if I feel a connection to it. In 1989, my mom paid $300 for my Rags who lived 19.5 years. That breaks down to $15/year. I would have paid $3,000+ a year for him. He was the love of my life. I don’t think 1,000 EURO sounds like a lot. Again, though, to me it’s not really the important part.

  14. Jerri K says:

    I had to convert that to US dollars – 1000 EURO equals $1225 US dollars. I’m really not sure what the going rate in Italy is for Ragdoll kittens. In the US, for that price you would likely get a show-quality kitten. Pet quality kittens, based on the local breeders I’m familiar with are about $675-700 US dollars. This would normally include everything you mentioned, as well as knowing the parents have been genetically tested for the HCM gene.

    So while I agree with Jenny that they are worth every penny, compared to US prices, 1000 EURO seems a bit high to me for a pet quality kitten! But if that’s what you have to pay in your area, you will not regret it!

  15. Rachelle says:

    I was soooo lucky. I got a CFA registered Sealpoint Mitten male at 2 1/2 years old from a younger Russian woman who had bought him from a breeder a few months back in 01/12. She found that he didn’t like her two daughters – maybe they pestered him too much? – and she was going back to Europe for a while and couldn’t take him. She had let a neighbor “take care” of him for just a few days, and supposedly in that time his whole belly and chest became matted. She sold him, his carrier and large hooded litter pan for $30. No, that was not a typo. I took him to a very good groomer and for $65 plus a $10 tip got his belly and chest shaved of matts, and the rest of him bathed, as well as a high-and-tight trim around his butt (I can’t STAND cling-ons) and nails cut. He gets along with my 20 lb. dog (as long as he stays away from the dog’s food), he is incredibly affectionate, loves to curl up by me, follows me everywhere in the house…and meows loudly for his spendy $1.49 per tiny can of wet food – occasionally on sale for 99c at Petsmart (I tried some Friskies…he only ate that when he realized I wasn’t going to give in right away to the more expensive choice he’s on now; after all, Friskies wet food is better than no wet food). He was also fed Iams Digestive Health dry food because “he has a sensitive stomach” and though I still have him on it, I’m doing some research on better options for longevity. (Seems he didn’t take to Blue Buffalo; it gave him loose stools.) I also buy Feline Pine litter at $13+tax per 14lb box, and with cleaning his box twice/day and weekly fresh litter, I go through about a box every 2 1/2 weeks. His shots were up to date, but I’m getting him examined in a couple of weeks for some baseline lab work, as well as getting him microchipped. heaven forbid he slip out of the house – I would never get him back, I think, even if he were ‘chipped, cause he is SO handsome! $25 for a cat tree, $10 for a grooming tool, plus there’s toys, catnip, treats, waterless shampoo for between quarterly groomer visits…. phew! But so worth it. Now if I could just de-smell his poop he’d be perfect. LOL

  16. Heather says:

    I’m looking for a place to put the word out and find a great home for our Ragdoll…. We have two little boys who we have found to be alergic to our precious Ragdoll – Ryoko. Ryoko turned one in August, is a seal point beauty, neutered, has his claws but never uses them, loves everyone and wants to be in the middle of kid’s chaos, and also loves our yellow lab.

    I have to find him a home to someone who prefereably has a loving dog, children and house that would spoil him rotten.

    Any suggestions?

  17. Robbie says:

    Heather,

    I may be interested in your furry friend. So sorry to hear you can’t keep him, but would absolutely love to get more information from you!

    Thanks,

  18. Rachelle says:

    Davidson aka Davi was diagnosed this week with severe stomatitis – a common oral infection/inflammation in many of the ‘oriental’ breeds (Himalayan/Birman/Siamese, Tonkinese, etc.) and also in Ragdolls. His vet visit, microchipping and antibiotics for the stomatitis came to about $330. Yikes! Now I have to give him 1ml liquid abx twice a day – and he HATES it. I have to wrap him in a blanket and squish him between my knees to inject the liquid into his mouth. Neither of us are happy campers, but I hope the med helps. Stomatitis can be VERY bad.

  19. Melissa says:

    In 2007 I adopted Sebastian when he was 6 years old for the low low price of $25. He was listen on petfinder.com. For that fee I got the most amazing companion, his brush, a broken automatic littler box, and his carrier. I often tell Sebastian that was the best $25 I have ever spent. He was in a situation where he was kept in a basement of a home because he was afraid of the dogs and children. Now 5 years later he is still with me, living a happy carefree life. No matter what we pay for a Ragdoll these beautiful cats make the most amazing companions with their sweet distempers, gentle head butts, their “Ragdoll Flops”, blue eyes, and unconditional love.

    • Jenn Rausch says:

      Melissa, you are absolutely right ! ! I’ve had 4 cats I never paid a cent for and they are all so sweet and loveable !

  20. Jenn Rausch says:

    I paid $375 + $275 airfare for my Ollie – 1/2 price discount as the breeder (NOT RECOMMENDED) was discounting older kittens. He was 7 1/2 months when I got him. They did not neuter him either, I discovered later during research that all other breeders spay/neuter before sending to their homes. I spent almost $1,500 on him in vet bills in the first 4 months, in addition to his neutering, chipping and vacs he was discovered to have an ear polyp after 2 1/2 months of trying to figure out why he had a chronic ear infection and weepy eye. Thankfully the ear is good now but we still deal with the weepy eye.

    I have no idea how much I spend on vet bills a year, I have 5 cats now and this has been an unusual year with all Ollie’s issues. As for feeding, about $30/$40 a month on dry (Blue) and not sure about wet, around $15-$20/mo depending if I can get Friskies on sale. I split 1 5.5 oz can for all 5 a day.

  21. Amber says:

    I got mine from a lady who just wanted to spread the ragdoll love. She was against registration and didn’t want her animals in cat shows since they are basically like circuses. I bought 1 male and 1 female ragdoll from her in late 2011. I paid $450 for the male and $225 for the female. It was a “buy one get one free” deal. Plus, she just really seemed to like me a lot and related to me. I think she just wanted to have kittens to play with as well. She had a lot of money, a really huge house and a lot of free time. They were extremely well taken care of. She had several other adult cats that were rescues and every single cat in the household got along with each other. There was a lot of love there.

    I paid about $700 at the vet a few months later to get them both fixed, tattooed, pain meds for the surgeries, cones and a health check up (blood test, etc). The reason I didn’t get a health check up right away is because the lady had it done for me. She even gave me the vet documentation.

    I spend about $40 on litter each month, $60 on soft food and $50 on hard food. Actually, maybe not even that much because they eat less than I buy. I just like to make sure I always have enough food on hand for them. Mango (the boy) is super beefy but doesn’t eat much. The food I buy is locally made and really good quality, so maybe that’s why. He’s very healthy. Gypsy (the girl) eats a lot, but I think she has a high metabolism because she’s super skinny no matter how much she eats. Over all, though, they are not that expensive to maintain. I don’t ever want to have kids. My ragdolls are my kids! :D

    By the the way, those are Canadian dollars :)

  22. Linda Sidor says:

    I am a breeder, I purchased my very first pet girl
    Meribelle for $450.00 in 1991! She lived to be thirteen
    We fell in love and the rest is history!

  23. Jennifer says:

    All prices in Canadian dollars:
    Toby – $100, papered rescue ;)
    Cosmo and Orion – $665 each after tax
    Isabella – $100, papered retired breeder. Had to spay her myself.
    Hailey and Maia – $700 each, both fixed and both torties. Breeder charges the same for rare colours as traditional colours.

  24. Barbie Heinen says:

    J-Cat & Babsi: $800.00 each after $100 discount for two kittens. They were “miss marked” so cannot be shown, but their Daddy is a Supreme Grand Champion and their Mommy is a Triple Grand Champion. They come from two wonderful breeders in the Oklahoma City area who not only show their wonderful cats all the time, but raise them lovingly as part of their marvelous families. One breeder, FamilyTime Rags, has their Daddy, and another, D’s Jewels, has their Mommy so the kittens came from her. So we have two wonderful babies and couldn’t ask for more. Now almost one year old, they came to us at 12 weeks old, neutered and spayed, microchiped, and with all age appropriate vaccinations, wormings, health record, four-year health guarantee, a kitten care package for each kitten filled with a food sample of kitten food, sample of litter, toys, as well as sweet plush baby blankets. Both breeders are always available to answer any of my questions. So you can see they have a LOT of time and love invested in their kitties, and I think the cost is very appropriate. As for what the babies cost ME in a year, just read all the costs associated with everyone elses babies above, and you’ll know! But as everyone before me has said, they are SO worth it!

  25. Stephanie Bray says:

    I have 8 Ragdolls, ALL rescues, ALL free. 2 are Grand Champions and one is a Champion. All are absolutely perfect. You never have to buy a Ragdoll, rescue them instead because they are killed in shelters every day.

    • Jennifer Ross says:

      My Phoebe is a retired queen and was almost 6 years old when I adopted her in 2011. She cost me $300 and it’s the best $300 that I have ever spent :)

      Fancy Feast in Sydney retails for A$1.07/can and usually I try to get it on special for around 83c/can. I also buy Royal Canin Intense Hairball formula dry food, 2kgs for A$35.95

      I also have Phoebe insured against major illnesses.

    • Hi, My cat past away about a month ago. It really hurts when I think of him which is every day. Where did you rescue your kitties from?

  26. Barbara Hirsch says:

    I got Anna in 2008 and Sophie in 2009 from Precious Paws in Charlottesville, VA. They were $800 each. We had to spay them ourselves which cost around $450 for Anna and $550 for Sophie because I also had her chipped. The girls have always been healthy and the only time I’ve had to bring either of them to the vet for anything other than regular check-ups and shots was earlier this year when Sophie got into something and skinned her ear. The emergency vet bill was $225 for clean up, an antibiotic shot and an e-collar, which I thought was very reasonable.

    I bought a couple of thousand dollars or so of supplies for the girls before I took them home the first time, and spend around $200 or $300 a month average for food, litter, treats, toys, replacement scratching pads, etc. I buy all their food, hairball treats (for Sophie), etc. at PetSage in Alexandria, VA. It’s an organic pet food store. I replaced two water fountains this year at a cost of $150 for Drinkwell 360 stainless fountains.

    A regular checkup for each cat costs $70 when they don’t get shots. I take them once each year. When Anna gets her rabies and distemper every three years I take her on two visits because she is sensitive, So that winds up costing me $250 for both visits. Sophie is $135 for her vaccination visit because she gets it all together. They are indoor cats, so I’ve only been getting them fecals every other year, those are $60 a piece.

    I consider anything I spend on my girls well worth it for all the pleasure they give me. I don’t “budget” for my cats, but I’m guessing they cost me somewhere between $3,000 and $4,000 a year. I’m sure I could do it cheaper if I needed to.

  27. Angela says:

    Oppa was $600 and newest cat Kimchi was only $350 (discount of $100 for being returning customer) she was a lil older but not that old. Got them from gemdandyragdolls =^^=

  28. Sarah says:

    I payed 725$ which included 75$ for my kitten’s neuter surgery. Food, toys, and pet supplies cost me another few hundred ( haven’t totaled it up yet). I think someone on a budget would still have to spend about 200$ on supplies if they do not already own a cat. One thing to keep in mind is that some contracts request you do a vet visit within 1 week of receiving the kitten. My vet visit cost 138$. But in that visit I got the kitten microchipped, a potty/ sanitary cut and some fortiflora.

    I got my ragdoll ,tommy, (at 8 weeks old) on December 1st, 2012

    We got our two boys for $750 and $950 – and a 50 dollar discount for getting two. Our bluepoint mitted was $750 and the Blue Mink Bicolor $950 – From the research I have done most Ragdolls in my area (Northern California) are between $650 – $1100 for non breeders.

    I bought Nuzzler a blue bicolor for about $500.00 in 2001. She was a pet, early spay, no problems till about 2004 when she began to have feline acne and allergies to 30 different items!!! After much allergy testing, medication and vet visits, she contracted ringworm.
    Expenses for vet at least a thousand dollars.

    I bought Snuggler a choc lynx Torbie bicolor show cat in
    Dec 2005, she was $1500.00, beautiful and healthy but did not enjoy showing. Healthy appetite also. She swallowed NINE glitterball toys in Nov 2006. 2 surgeries and many chewings later, she’s still very much vocal and a wonderful cat – but those vet bills can run in the hundreds. Cats are like 6 month olds – you NEVER know what they are going to get into!!!

    I recently (Oct. 2013) bought 2 (pet) Ragdoll kittens (I’m not a breeder), one seal mitted male and a blue mitted female from the same litter. Costs: 700,- Euro’s ($948,-) for the male and 650,- Euro’s ($880,-) for the female. I got a 50,- Euro ($68) discount because I was buying two cats at the same time.

  34. Amy says:

    Vito was $775 this past July. I beleive that cost is due to the fact that there are very few breeders in this area and the demand is high. He came un-neutered, wormed and first vaccinations. He was very well socialized and I feel the breeder was good. My vet knew of the breeder and says they are reputable and always breed nice, sweet Raggies.

  35. Victoria says:

    We picked up our ragdoll kitten 19 weeks ago and paid £480 for her. Today’s exchange rate makes that $765. She is a neutered seal mitted bicolour.

    I paid 650$ for my Ragdoll, who is mitted and named Elizabeth Taylor. We’ve had her for 6 months, and surprisingly, she’s not too expensive to maintain at all. We have her on the PetSmart plan which is 30$/month, and covers nearly every medical necessity. And canned food is about 70$/month. She’s a wonderful companion and amazing addition to our little family! If I had to choose to do it all over, I would!
