Ragdoll Cat Breeders: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly

If you’re a Ragdoll lover looking for a new furry family member, congratulations! Ragdolls enrich our lives, and they have lots of love to give. These beautiful cats often have a friendly temperament, big blue eyes, and plush coats, making them a popular breed.

If you want to adopt a purebred cat, many options are available. It is probably best to adopt either a rescue Ragdoll (a Ragdoll that has been abandoned or needs to be adopted because a family is moving out of the country or for various other reasons) or a retired breeder (these are purebred cats that breeders have used for breeding litters, and they are usually 3 to 8 years old). 

There are many reputable breeders to choose from, and we would like to help you learn how to find a fantastic breeder in your area.

Is It Worth It to Wait and Buy My Ragdoll Cat from a Reputable Breeder?

Check out Floppycats readers’ list of recommended Ragdoll cat breeders by state.

We also have a page about how to spot Bad Ragdoll Breeders and scammers. It can be tough to figure out which breeders are good and which are harmful, but we’re here to help.

First, it’s essential to know that a “reputable breeder” concept is very subjective. You will find that many reputable breeders of all kinds of animals are rather opinionated because they are so passionate about animals’ well-being. As a result, some problematic breeding and animal care controversies can be tough to discern.

Our “Find a Ragdoll Cat Breeder” page might help you more with the research process. A good Ragdoll cat rescue is sometimes the best route for those who do not have the time or energy for a kitten or are looking for a more established cat. Purebred cat rescues do a great job of looking at your background and family needs to place the right kitty with you. 

Some of the things to look for in a breeder are: 

  • Are the kittens raised underfoot? (in the breeder’s home)
  • Does the breeder have a decent reputation?
  • Do the cats look happy and well on the breeder’s website?
  • Does the breeder have dogs or children?
  • Do you personally like the breeder’s personality?
  • Does the breeder test their mating cats for genetic diseases?

There are many questions to ask a potential breeder to determine if they’re the right fit. If you’d like additional ideas, please visit our Questions for Breeders page. Getting along with your Ragdoll breeder is very important. Any negative energy from either side can indirectly affect the cat you are considering. 

Their kittens must be either raised underfoot or in the breeder’s home. If the breeder has a separate room, that can be okay if the breeder is proactive about socializing the animals.

How Do You Evaluate a Cat Breeder?

If you are looking for a purebred Ragdoll from a responsible breeder, it is a good idea to look at several breeders. Ask other breeders if they know another breeder you are interested in. In such a field, they usually know of one another.

Photos of each new kitten on a breeder’s website always say much about the cats. If there is a lot of “gook” in the cat’s eyes and the eyes of the cat are droopy, then more than likely, it has health conditions.

Be sure to look at the background of the photos. Is the area where the cats are living clean? If not, then the cat may have health issues. If the kittens, Studs (male breeders), and Queens (female breeders) look healthy and happy, then more than likely, the kittens will be too. Getting photos of the kitten you are considering texted, emailed, or mailed to you is essential. 

You will likely have to put down a deposit to reserve a kitten or an unborn kitten from a litter. The more popular the breeder and the more popular the Queen or Stud producing the litter, the more popular the kittens will be. However, the breeder should be willing to send you photos of the kitten or the unborn kitten’s parents before you put down a deposit.

Lastly, consider whether or not the breeder has children or dogs. If you have children and dogs, the kitten should be raised in that environment so that when the kitten arrives at your home, there isn’t a challenging adjustment period with your kids or dogs. Good Ragdoll breeders ensure that the young kittens are raised in an environment similar to their new home!

Some Ragdoll breeders will ship their kittens. You pay an extra fee for this (the airline charges) and a pet carrier fee (which the breeder buys ahead of time and ships the kittens in–so they are safe and warm). Some Ragdoll breeders insist that you pick them up yourself, so it may be the wisest thing to find a Ragdoll breeder in your or the next state over.

If you would like to travel to get your kitten – that is, on an airplane, the breeder should allow you to see their facility to check that it is in good condition. If the breeder is hesitant to let you see their home/facility, you might be wary of adopting from that breeder. After all, as a cat breeder, they are operating a business, and part of their business is the facility they operate in!

Words of Caution

As with any purebred animal, beware of “discount” Ragdolls. The kitten might be inexpensive up front, but even a gorgeous cat can come with diseases that could make the kitten very expensive in the future. Unfortunately, Ragdolls are a popular cat breed, incentivizing people to breed them haphazardly and ignore health concerns.

Ragdolls should be purchased from a registered, reputable breeder. Unfortunately, when a breeder wants to breed happy, healthy pedigree Ragdolls, it’s an expensive and timely undertaking that will show up in the price of a Ragdoll kitten.

BEWARE! Ragdoll Breeder Scams

Apart from irresponsible breeders, you also have to watch out for scams. Some people pretend to be Ragdoll breeders, but they are scam artists.

Like many scams, these can be tough to spot, so personally asking the breeder questions and ensuring you see pictures and tour the facility is very important.

Where to Look for a Reputable Ragdoll Cat Breeder

When we talk about buying a new Ragdoll kitten, the best option is to do it through a reputable, well-known breeder in your area. A professional and good breeder will also make sure you’re a good fit before allowing you to take in any floppy cats, and they are breeding cats as a business! 

They should ask about your: 

  • Financial situation, 
  • Living standards
  • Ability to love and take care of the kitty!

On top of that, a professional breeder will also do genetic testing to screen for everyday health problems and ensure that the kitten is vaccinated.

One thing to remember, though, is that a kitten that is vaccinated will also come with a certificate and is often called “Veterinarian Certified.”

Buying an adequately vaccinated kitten free from any genetic defects provides the owners with peace of mind. It can also save one from veterinary bills later down the road.

Some of the diseases against which a kitten is tested are:

  • HCM
  • FIV
  • FELV
  • PKD

In short, there are a lot of benefits in choosing a professional breeder, and one of the top positives is that you get quality kittens bred according to the standards for this breed of cat.

Another good sign for a credible Ragdoll breeder will be if they’ve registered their catteries with the following:

These organizations are cat associations or cat registries that:

  • Keep a register of pedigree cats
  • Specify and update the breed standard for registered breeds
  • Monitor the development of new cat breeds
  • Organize and host cat exhibitions with competent judges
  • Guarantee that all registered cat breeders follow a strict code of ethics

What Do Quality Ragdoll Breeders Offer?

Variety of Ragdoll Colors

Most reputable breeders offer Ragdoll kittens in the usual/traditional colors, including: 

  • Seal
  • Mitted
  • Lynx
  • Tortie
  • Chocolate
  • Bi-color Patterns

Health and Veterinary Care

A good practice best Ragdoll breeders follow is to test their kittens for PKD and HCM. They usually guarantee that their kittens are HCM-negative. Some also get their kittens tested every year for FIV and FELV. The kittens should have all their vaccines, along with 3 deworming doses. Some breeders offer a health guarantee for a certain period, too.

Free Consultation Call

You can always look at their website (because reliable Ragdoll breeders have websites or some online presence.) If they offer a free consultation call, we have a list of questions for cat breeders that will help you in the adoption process and ensure this kitten is the right cat for your family. You don’t need to spend a lot of time talking to the breeder to sense whether they are knowledgeable about domestic cat breeds and thorough in their care.

Additional Pet Insurance

Some breeders are also pet insurance gurus. They could offer different insurance packages for your family. You’ll be able to select a good option for your needs and ensure that your floppy cat has access to lifelong quality care.

Fun Facts About Ragdoll Cats

If you want to dive into more details about what makes this pointed breed unique, check our post about Ragdoll genetics. For example, did you know that the breeder Ann Baker is the creator of Ragdoll cats? Or that all Ragdoll cats carry Josefine’s genes? Did you know that, although they’re bred to be an affectionate breed, each adult cat has its soul, and the personality traits of each adult Ragdoll cat can differ?

FAQs – Ragdoll Breeders

Let’s dive into the most frequently asked questions related to Ragdoll breeders.

What is the average price for a Ragdoll kitten?

The answer can differ from country to country and even from one US state to another!
For pet quality, you can get one starting from $1200.
For breeder quality, the starting price is $3500.
If you want to buy a show-quality kitten from champion bloodlines in the Ragdoll cat breed, you need to expect to pay a higher price. Some can cost $5000+.

How do I find a reputable Ragdoll breeder?

We have listed some of the best and most reputable Ragdoll breeders above. But to find Ragdoll breeders in any US state or other country, you can also rely on Google Maps. Try only to pick those breeders who have primarily positive reviews from the customers. Then, check each potential breeder’s certifications and inquire about any health guarantees.

Are boy or girl Ragdolls better?

It depends on your personal preference and requirements. Both male and female Ragdolls are adorable, and the decision to get either is on you! Whatever you choose, you’re going to make a good choice.

Are Ragdoll cats clingy?

Ragdolls are very affectionate cats, and some might call them clingy due to their higher need for attention than other breeds. Ragdoll cats are amazing indoor cats for owners who want a companion to play with, but they can be a bit much for an owner who treasures their independence and personal space.

What Should Ragdoll Cat Breeders Give You? 

Every cat breeder packages the documentation of their kitties on their terms. NEVER get a pedigree cat without asking the breeder for the proper paperwork! There are certain things you should look for when you’re buying a Ragdoll from a legit breeder:

Contract

An essential part of the adoption process is the contract between you and the cat breeder. The sales contract describes the particular kitten you’re buying and any guarantees the breeder offers.

The document should include the following:

  • The name of your cat
  • Color
  • Gender
  • Breed
  • Parents
  • Your signature
  • The breeder’s signature

Some contracts include a clause that you should spay/neuter the kitten if it’s not for breeding. The buyer should do it within 12 months of buying their pet. Some breeders may withhold the paperwork until proof of spaying/neutering. This is an acceptable practice.

Be sure you read the contract carefully and discuss with the Ragdoll cat breeder all the parts you don’t understand or disagree with.

Veterinary Health Certificate

Even though a health guarantee might be specified as a part of the sales contract, the breeder needs to give you the kitten’s documentation that proves the feline has been under proper veterinary care (like blood, genetic or other test results, the kitty’s passport, etc.).

The health guarantee should include the following information:

  • That the cat is free of specified conditions at the time of sale.
  • The guarantee covers a specified period after the sale (usually one year).
  • The dates and the vaccines the cat has received.
  • A deadline by which a buyer must get the cat examined by a licensed veterinarian to ensure that it is in good health.

Some examples of conditions a breeder might guarantee against include:

  • FeLV (feline leukemia)
  • Ringworm
  • Fleas
  • Worms
  • Upper respiratory infections, including panleukopenia, rhinotracheitis, and calici
  • Known genetic problems
  • FIV* (feline immunodeficiency virus)
  • FIP** (feline infectious peritonitis)

What Should I Look for When Buying a Ragdoll Kitten?

When buying a Ragdoll cat, you’re not just getting a pet. You’re adopting a new member of your family. And just like every household member, the kitty you’re getting will have their personality, preferences, and needs.

Here’s a video about what’s it like to live with two Floppycats and what you need to know about them:

  3. Looking for a reputable breeder in the New England area, I see the only one with availability on their website is Bayridge Ragdolls in East Greenwich Rhode Island. Looks like their boys and girls come from Europe but they look gorgeous and look legit. Can anyone share any feedback on them? I know there’s a great review from 2017 on Willetterags but they have a year long wait list and I don’t want to wait that long. I’m not planning to breed them, just a pet for my family. Just want to make sure no health issues and so on. So curious about Bayridge Rags. Being unable to visit the cattery due to Covid restrictions sucks so any advice would be helpful. Or if anyone can recommend a good one in the New England area that would be great.

    1. Hi Nev,
      I don’t know if you’re still looking as you mentioned not wanting to wait a year but I saw your comment and wanted to say I worked with Lily at Bayridge this past summer and yes, she’s legit. She raises kittens underfoot, we were able to meet one of her queens as well as the kittens, and they were all happy and healthy. She clearly loves them and dotes on them.
      Once we picked our girl, she sent us videos every couple of days of her playing with her siblings or climbing things or playing a game with Lily herself.
      I highly recommend Bayridge whenever she has kittens available! Our girl is so beautiful and playful and sweet. I know there are a couple of other reputable catteries in the NE area as well, a couple in Massachusetts that I’ve heard good things about.
      Good luck if you’re still searching!

  5. Great experience with Arizona House of Rags! The Cattery is located in Waddell, AZ, USA. Website is https://azhouseofrags.com/

    We brought home our lovable floppy cat “Phineas the Brave” on 11/7/20. He is a such a stunning cat- a handsome blue lynx point. Kathleen was incredibly kind, helpful, and patient with us throughout the process as this was our first family cat. We came across Ragdolls from my first grader’s school library book and we were hooked on them. Lucky for us grandma found Kathleen and secretly put a deposit on a kitten for our family! We are so thrilled with just how loving and fluffy Phineas is. We were so careful and slow to introduce him to his new big house and beagle brother but he is absolutely the most comfortable loving kitten. He wants to cuddle the dog on the couch, is adventurous and playful, and is definitely FLOPPY and loves to be held and cuddled. We are thrilled and highly recommend AZ House of Rags- not just for the beautiful kittens but also bc Kathleen was great to work with. She did a wonderful job raising a happy healthy kitten in a clean, very social environment!

    1. Awe you guys, my heart is very full I’m so glad that Phin has such a loving family it was truly a pleasure

  9. Hi, can anyone recommend a ragdoll breeder in Virginia, North Carolina, or somewhere which is a reaonanle driving distance from Fredericksburg VA? Thanks so much in advance for your help!

    1. Tory Hamilton says:

      We got our two sweet ragdolls from a breeder in Virginia called AngelGirl Ragdolls. We are very happy.
      Cattery Name: AngelGirl Ragdolls
      City, State: Fairfax, Virginia
      Country: USA
      Website: http://www.AngelGirlRagdolls.com
      When you adopted your kitty: 2018 – April and June
      Adoption Story: I am going to college in Virginia and was very lonely and wanted a pet. Obviously a dog is not a good pet for a busy college student who sometimes is on campus for 8 hour stretches because they need to be walked. However, I wanted a really friendly pet who would cuddle me and not hide under the furniture.

      After researching breeds I found out about the Ragdoll, with its dog-like personality. I researched local breeders and called several who never called back, or who never responded to emails. However, the one who had the best website answered the phone right away and offered to let me come visit and see their available kittens since they weren’t too far from me. That was Angel Girl Ragdolls

      So I went to their house and saw lots of ragdolls who came up to me and my friend to get some love. The house was very nice and smelled normal. It was clean and the cats all looked healthy. The couple were very nice and have some kids and a dog. I didn’t see the kids but I saw their pictures. The dog wanted just as much attention as the cats so they had to put the dog in another room, but then they brought out three different litters with kittens that were available for sale. Some kittens were too expensive for me, but I found one I liked for $950. who was loving and playful and just gorgeous. Cost can range a lot depending on whether they are rare or show quality cats. I told them I was on a budget.

      I did have to go to the bathroom and they told me I would be sharing the bathroom with a litter of kittens. Sure enough, there was a mom cat and some kittens in there. The babies were very interested in my feet, but were friendly. The bathroom was clean, and the litterbox was clean. The mom cat was in a carrier with a liner and an open top and and an open side. They had a full water bowl and a full cat bowl, plus another bowl of baby food that was mostly eaten.

      My experience was really good with them. They gave me lots of advice and called afterwards to check up on us. I was so pleased that when I returned to Dallas in the summer my mom and dad wanted a kitten because they liked my girl Maia so much. They happily flew with a kitten to meet us. The wife of AngelGirls has family in Texas so she delivers kittens to Texas as well, and only charges the cost of the kitten to fly – which in 2018 was $180.00 My parents are also very happy with their kitten. Hope this helps!

    Hi Jenny,
    Awesome site! I’m new to ragdolls and hope to get one from a breeder by March 2017. We currently have a british shorthair. After researching on Ragdolls, watching your vids, and seeing them at a cat show and at a breeder my wife and I are in Love! I just got your book as well. Keep up the great work!

    I just had a question for those owners that purchased from a breeder. Is it really worth getting the paperwork from the breeders? I adopted our British shorthair from a breeder. I received the paperwork I was supposed to send out but never did. I didnt understand why I would need to pay for this paperwork when we would have no plans on breeding or selling our cat in the near future. What do you and your subscribers think about this topic?

    Thanks in advance,
    Ger

    1. Hi Ger, thank you for supporting our site by buying our book. As far as papers go, papers represent responsible breeding and also hopefully someone that cares about the breed. So it’s more than just getting papers – if a breeder does papers more often than not they are responsible and care about the breed. Those things are worth more – and you have to question someone’s intentions who does not have papers with their cats.

  11. This summer, I ordered a ragdoll kitten from Catastrophic/Lonerock in WI. The kitten was suddenly “ready” a month early. And, I was SOO excited. In retrospect, the early was not the only red flag that I should have seen. I really did not want to buy $100 of cat food that was not the brand I intended to feed. I thought we had that worked out, yet was expected to pay $80 for foods I did not want. One of them being a low quality, the other being freeze dried. On the way home, the kitten coughed several times. I notified the breeder via email when we got home that night. She kept encouraging me to NOT see the vet, telling me it was “stress”. That was Sunday. Wednesday, i took him to the vet and he had conjuntivitis, a fever, and congested lungs. He was given Zythromycin. The following Monday, I took him back and he was worse. The vet asked to keep him. He passed away the following Friday. I was able to get a refund, but that did not fix the heartbreak. Looking back, I should not have “assumed” that the health certificate and registration papers were in the pack sent with (I owned a pet store and we had all that with ALL of the puppies, plus enough food to transition). I should have wondered when the cat was handed to me wrapped in a blanket and I was told to hold him all the way home (6 hours)I should have wondered when there were no other cats in sight and the response to where the housecats were was “outside”. The blood work came back as FeLV positive. Although the fever and white count indicated bacterial. His lungs were clear on x-ray. WE have since gotten two ragdoll kittens from Brier Rose. We were pleased to see kitties and underfoot and with run of the house. I received all of the paperwork that I had expected. My vet check on my end indicated very healthy kittens. Rags (the first cat) may well have been an isolated incident for this breeder…I know that things can happen. But, I also know that in her 35 years of breeding, this could not have been the “first” as she said.

  12. I have a rag doll cat who has never had kittens and is no more than 3 or 4 very pretty needs a home very bad some one just dropped her off and never came to sign papers over not fixed and really need some one to contact me asap im in Clearwater fl.

    Just watched your video on Weruva canned cat food. My Dolly eats Fussie cat canned food. What do you think of that brand? I also give her Fromm Surf and Turf dry food, but she actually prefers the wet food. I buy that from Chewy.com and will look into the Weruva brand. Will appreciate your comment. Thanks. Mary

    1. I have heard of it, I think, but that’s it. I do not know anything about it. Oh!! It’s a VERY GOOD thing she prefers wet food – I would look into the dangers of dry food. Check out catinfo.org and see the benefits of a wet food only or a raw and wet food only diet. Just say no to dry food is my new thing =)

There are many Ragdoll breeders and catteries.

If you are looking for a Ragdoll cat, it is probably best to buy either a rescue Ragdoll (a Ragdoll that has been abandoned or needs to be adopted because a family is moving out of the country or various other reasons), a retired breeder (these purebred cats range in age from 3 to 8 years old and they are cats that breeders have used to breed. The breeders look for a safe home for the retired breeders) or adopt a new kitten.
