If you are interested in purchasing a kitten, you may either visit us and view the kittens by appointment, or we will send pictures of kittens that we have to choose from for you to look at. We generally do not allow visitors until the kittens are 8-9 weeks and have had their first vaccines. Pictures can be taken as early as 3-4 weeks.
Once you have chosen the kitten that you want, we require a non-refundable reservation fee of EUR 200 to reserve the kitten for you until he or she is ready to become a member of your family. If for any reason we cannot bring you your kitten between 13-16 weeks of age, or agree on a suitable replacement, we will refund your deposit in full.
When your kitten is old enough to join you in your home (13-16 weeks), we will make an appointment to bring your kitten to you. It is much easier for us to let them go when we have seen their new surroundings and met their new family members (other pets are family members, too!) . It is also easier for them to adjust to their new surroundings with a few familiar faces around. We will travel several hundred km to deliver your kitten safe and sound to your doorstep. We do not make exceptions on this policy unless you already have a cat or kitten from us.
Please note that our Ragdoll cats and kittens are strictly indoor-only cats, UNLESS you can provide them with a safe, fully enclosed area in which they can go outside, OR you spend supervised time outside with your cat on a harness and leash (yes, you can train your Ragdoll to do this if you start relatively early and are patient about it).
Ragdolls are very social animals and they need companionship to lead happy, healthy lives. For this reason we do not sell single kittens to families who work full-time, unless they have at least one other cat. If you work full-time and would like to have a Ragdoll but can’t afford to buy two kittens, you may want to ask your breeder about acquiring a young retired breeding cat. Even if your breeder doesn’t have any young adults available, chances are he or she can refer you to a breeder who does. Also, your second kitty doesn’t have to be a Ragdoll. There are plenty of healthy, sociable young cats and kittens out there available for adoption. If you adopt a kitten or a cat from an animal shelter, however, it is a good idea to make sure that you keep the cat isolated from your other cats or kittens until your vet has examined him or her, and preferably tested for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) and has given the OK.
If you are planning on visiting your kitten, please do not visit other breeders, animal shelters, or multi-cat households on the same day. This is important as there are many illnesses (both bacterial and viral) that can be transmitted by your petting multiple cats, or even on your clothes or shoes. We do our best to keep our animals healthy, and your help and consideration is greatly appreciated. :o)
