Ragdoll Cat Price
A long time ago (or it seems like it), I wrote a blog post about the buying a Ragdoll cat. A Ragdoll cat price 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:
- Rags, purchased in 1989 with his brother Cosby – $350/ea
- Caymus and Murphy, purchased in 2004 – $600/ea (reduced by $50 each because my parents were buying 2)
- 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 (please leave comments below to let me know if prices are much higher than these):
|Pet (Alter) Quality||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||USD$1200- USD $2300+||This is a Ragdoll cat that is perfectly marked to be shown at cat shows, but is spayed or neutered.|
|Breeder Quality||USD$1500- USD $2500+||This is a Ragdoll cat that is fit for breeding and should also have been tested to be free of genetic diseases.|
|Show/Breeder Quality||USD$2300- USD $2700+||This is a Ragdoll cat that is perfectly marked to be shown at cat shows, and is also fit for breeding.|

Since this is such a popular topic, I went ahead and asked our Facebook community – 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?
