In addition to the price of a Ragdoll cat, one of the other questions I get frequently through e-mail is the average monthly or yearly cost of a Ragdoll cat.
The price of a Ragdoll cat is covered on this page – Ragdoll Cat Price – which is literally the amount you paid for the kitten or adult cat.
However, the monthly or yearly amount required to keep a Ragdoll cat is quite different.
A Ragdoll cat cost really includes:
- Vet Visits
- Flea Control, etc.
- Unexpected Expenses
- Cat Health Insurance
- Did I forget something?
A kitten is usually more 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 spend on or budget for your kitty every year? If you can include in the comments a breakdown of what you spend and also maybe say if you feed dry food, wet food or raw food (as the costs of those vary considerably), maybe where you live, the type of litter you use, the age of your cat, the health of your cat, etc. You can break it down by the month or the year.
