Are you getting a kitten? Worried about what to expect from your kitten or what to get for your kitten?

Trigg as a Ragdoll KittenWhat if you knew what to expect and prepare for before you even picked your Ragdoll kitten up? Wouldn’t it be nice to know how to kitten proof your home? Or what about what to buy at the pet store in anticipation for your little one’s arrival? How about vet visits and cat health insurance? There’s a lot to consider and prepare for. ….Well, you’re in luck. The only guide you’ll ever need is right here, and I promise it will help you understand everything you need to know. After many years of researching Ragdoll cats, talking to professional breeders, veterinarians, groomers, talking to cat owners about Ragdoll cats and bringing home four Ragdoll kittens myself over the past 8 years, I wrote A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home to give you all the knowledge you need in order to feel comfortable about bringing your baby home including what to expect, what to get and how to prepare your home.
Charlie as a Ragdoll Kitten“I have read your ebook and found it very informative. All of your product suggestions are priceless, especially for a new cat owner.  As a first time cat owner, I had not a clue as to what’s best.  Everyone has an opinion in what they like but, in your case I think you have tried a much wider variety of products therefore, I would definitely go with your suggestions. I had doubts/concerns about first days with my kitten and where the location of the safe room was.  You definitely cleared  that up for me.  I also watched your nail trimming video.  I definitely had not planned on doing this myself.  I was going to seek out the groomer.  But then I watched your video.  I can do that! I think you have a great book and have provided a great service for cat owners.  Especially newbies.”

“Thinking about getting a Ragdoll? Want an easy-to-read, yet an in-depth guide to preparing in taking your little one home? Jenny Dean’s A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home is a wonderful eBook that will not disappoint. Everything is broken down into easy chapters, and Jenny writes as if she is there with you to take you there through the various steps. I read this guide prior to picking up my Ragdoll kittens and I was very impressed with my outcome. It is now Day 5 and my kittens are adapting very well. They have their safe room with food, water, litter box, cat scratchers and cat condo. I especially followed the “Carriers and Your First Vet Visits” section. After following Jenny’s recommendations, my kittens had a comfortable first visit to their veterinarian. This eBook also gave me more confidence and food awareness as a cat owner. Before, I thought generic cat food brands provided satisfactory nutrition. After reading the guide, I am now feeding my kittens a combination of wet and dry grain-free cat food. Blue Buffalo and Wellness are just a couple to name. If you still are unsure about getting this guide, please visit as it is a wonderful resource not only for Ragdoll owners, but for all cat owners.” Lauren Birman “For a new Ragdoll owner you have doubts on what to do and what to use. After reading this book it helps you to make the right decisions on what products to use and on the health of the cat. I highly, highly recommend this book to all new Ragdoll owners. It will help you through preparing for your new Ragdoll kitten and what things to expect. Through the videos shown on you can see what Ragdolls are all about and products that you can try out. I have purchased several of the products that have been recommended on and I’m excited to put them to use. I like seeing how Jenny’s Ragdolls respond to the products that are being tested & especially the day to day activities of Ragdoll Cats.  Love,Love this book! Thanks Jenny!!!”

Charlie as a Ragdoll Kitten“As a future Ragdoll owner I feel this eBook is an essential guide and should be a first stop for anyone thinking about purchasing a Ragdoll kitten. It provides the most basic key points everyone should know prior to owning a kitten while giving helpful examples and tips along the way. I was skeptical on reading yet another book about cat care but reading this eBook in conjunction with being an avid reader of proved very worthwhile. I would recommend this eBook to anyone thinking about owning a Ragdoll kitten, especially first time owners who are still in the research phase. This eBook combined with have proven to be tremendously helpful in my quest in gathering information on Ragdoll cats.”

    Hi Jenny, I haven’t seen this come up and I’m not sure if this is the best place to ask my question but here goes: Since ragdolls take longer to mature, it stands to reason that they’re kittens longer too. Does this mean they should be kept on kitten food longer? My 7-month-old ragdoll is eating both regular (not kitten) canned food twice a day but he also free-feeds on the dry kitten food that his breeder recommended. Just wondering at what point I should wean him onto adult dry food. Thanks!

  2. ripdlc says:

    Hi Jenny! I lost my beautiful best friend of 14 years due to kidney disease in July. I’m still devastated. Kidney disease is horrific to watch, I’m a still angry because I kept saying I thought she should be on canned food not dry, but my vet insisted on kidney disease dry food. They wouldn’t allow me to do sub-q injections, they did nothing for her. I took her for 3 other vets and they did nothing. We had to put her to sleep. I shared this because Rags reminded me of her though she was a calico. I’m sorry for your loss. I now have a 4 month old ragdoll but I’m not sure what kind she is! The person I purchased her from said seal point but I’m not sure. Can you help if I send some pictures? My last and final question…I have a 13 year old kitty here as well. As long as little one keeps her distance she’s fine but little one has more energy than 10 lions! She chases my older cat, my olde cat will hiss, growl, spit, smack but not enough to hurt her. But for her to back off. Boo (the little kitty) doesn’t fight back but immediately does it over again. Eventually, I split them up. The kitten has a “safe room”. I got Boo October 30th & I’ve started back to step one over and over but nothing changes. An suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you

    • Jenny says:

      Firstly, I am sorry for your loss.

      On the kitten side of things – the problems you’re experiencing is the exact reason the breeder told us to get two kittens when Rags was 15- so they would play with one another and not pick on the senior cat, Rags. So, if that’s an option, it’s something to consider. Otherwise, I would find a good wand toy or something to wear her out, so that she doesn’t go looking for trouble with your senior cat.

    Hi Jenny!
    I already have a book “A ragdoll kitten care guide”,but I would like to purchase other two books,preferably hard copy! How can I get them?Thank you in advance.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Irena,

      The “Bonus” Books are included within “A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home” – just look in the back!


  4. Clare Anderson says:

    I want to buy the book (do you also get the other guides as well that were mentioned on the website?) but want hard copies not electronic and I cant see a purchase option from the web site for getting the actual book. Do you deliver to australia? Please provide the info I need to purchase (Link or Australian Seller) so i can arrange . thank you.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Clare,

      I am sorry but the book isn’t currently available in hard copy. It is only available in electronic copy – mostly because there are a lot of links where you can click on through to read more, etc. And also electronically it is available all over the world =).

      If you buy the Amazon one and forward me your receipt, I can send you a PDF version that you could always have printed.

      I hope to have a printed version soon.

      Thank you for your interest!

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Dave,
      Right now – through February it is being sold exclusively on – so if you have a Kindle or a Kindle app you can read it through that. I also have a PDF version, if you need that one sent to you.

  5. Marie Boros says:

    Jenny, I love your website. Intelligent and very informative.
    My first Ragdoll kitten will be born in about two weeks. I have to learn a lot
    before I get her. I’m very excited. I would like to have a hard copy of the
    Care Guide. Zip code to use is in San Digeo, Ca.92120. This is my son’s.
    If you send the book to him, he will forward it to me here, to Canada.
    Please answer.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Christine,

      Sorry, they’re not available in hard copy just yet. I would be happy to run them off at a printer for you and send them to you, but there would be an extra fee associated with that. Please let me know if you’re interested in that and I can get a rate for you (would need your zip code).


  6. Melissa Keefer says:

    Hi, Jenny ~ Great idea!! I’m going to order the book. Just wondering if the copies are available in hard copy? Also, is the little blaze baby your’s? I know you were interested in adding one to your family. He is adorable!!!

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Melissa – Yes, he is mine. His name is Charlie – he just turned two. No, no copies in hard copy yet – I haven’t decided whether or not to do that – it would take funding I do not have. It is available on in the Kindle version.

  7. Lori says:

    I too would love to buy these books as books, not e-books. Is it possible? And, if it isn’t, and I would purchase the ebooks, are there pictures that download too? Thanks.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Lori,

      At this point, the book isn’t available in hard copy. I hope to be able to offer that in the future!

      Yes, the ebook includes photos on nearly every page! Let me know if you need help!


  8. Kelly Leone says:

    Der Jenny I have tried to get though to you by e mail but seem to be having trouble hopefully this message will find you? I would love to purchase your books? RagDolls are my heart, I have 4 of them 3 of whom are babies and I could surely use all advice I can get! It would be nice to have books in hand instead of always reading everything on the computer! Please contact me as soon as possible if you are able to? So we can talk about getting my hands on your books and info without cc# on line! Thanks Kelly

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Kelly, I will email you, but wanted to post a comment too. There are a couple of options:

      1. You can send me a money order
      2. You can go to a place like CVS or Walgreens and get a Pre-paid Mastercard, Visa, etc and charge it that way
      3. You can use PayPal (if you have an account) and have the money withdrawn from your account.

      Also, I would be curious to know which e-mail you were using, so I can figure out why it wasn’t working.

      Thank you,

  9. Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz says:

    Wonderful series…I don’t have a Ragdoll but am thinking of ordering your ebook just for the info applicable for all kittens.

    • Jenny says:

      Thanks, Teri. It was a labor of love! You’re right, it can definitely be applied universally. I guess the only thing is that I refer to the Ragdoll Breeder here and there – but I think common sense can come into play too. Your Cornish Rexes are adorable!

      • Diane Hernandez says:

        My name is Diane. I recently rescued a kitten, I wasn’t sure what breed she was until I came across ragdoll facts on Pinterest. I now am convinced she is a ragdoll. Although I can’t say for sure how young she is? I also have a few questions and concerns….If you maybe are willing to help me out…I love this kitten to the moon, she has brought so much excitement, laughs, and explosion to my life in jus a few days! I definitely will keep her! She is very unique in so many ways, I will send you a couple photos, she isn’t to fond of photos because of the flash , she is very sensitive to light, she was crying this painful awful cry when I found her! My heart was heavy as I seen her in that cage!! I had to help her! I’m not positive she’s old enough to be away from mommy but she’s adapted well to her surroundings I am very proud of my kitten and she’s eating well, sleeping so much better and hardly makes a sound. I am n love with ragdolls now! I will do anything to make my baby’s environment , health, and shelter the most everyday! I rescued her, but she rescued me in so many ways , she has no idea! She is so tiny and lovable to the ppl around her, but to me she is my light, she somehow found me and I’m so Thankful!
        Like I said I would like to speak with you about my baby. There are a few things I am a bit concerned about. I’ve looked thru the web and I think I may have come across something but I’m not sure. This is my first rescue, first kitten, first love, I really would like some advice , ideas, helpful tips . Thank you very much!

    hahaha great idea I sure could have used this last December when getting the hooligans. Older cat is 13, and she was about 1 or so when we got her.
