The Good, the Bad & the Ugly of The Ragdoll Cat Breeders

If you're a Ragdoll lover who's looking for a new furry family member, congratulations! Ragdolls enrich our lives, and they have lots of love to give. 

There are many options available to you if you want to adopt a purebred cat. It is probably best to adopt either a rescue Ragdoll, or a retired breeder. 

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?

It is important that their kittens are either raised underfoot or in the breeder's home. If the breeder has a separate room, that too can be okay if the breeder is proactive about socializing the animals. 

How Do You Evaluate a Cat Breeder?

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

Be sure to look in the background of the photos. Is the area where the cats are living clean? If not, then the cat may have health issues.
