Our Ragdoll cats and kittens are purebred and are TICA registered. Kittens usually become available at about 12-14 weeks of age, some are slower to mature and may need additional time. You will receive a TICA registration form after purchase. Buyers purchasing for pet/show will receive it when proof of altering is shown before the kitten is six months of age. Before a kitten goes to its forever home we will provide spay/neuter legal contract agreement that must be signed.
We do not practice early spay/neuter because there are more health risks when altering a kitten prior to four months of age by any method. All kittens are also sold with a written health and genetic guarantee. Buyers will receive a health record with age-appropriate vaccinations and deworming. Above all, you will get your pre-spoiled bundle of joy who's ready for you to love!
PAYMENTS AND DISCOUNTS
We love to place our kittens in homes together, so we give 25% discounts when purchasing more than one kitten from us. We reserve the right to refuse the sale of our cats or kittens at any time or to anyone we feel is not the right home for one of our cats. Full payment is due on/before your kitten leaves our home, and we only accept cash on the day your kitten leaves. You may pay in advance of arriving, via Pay Pal or VENMO for your kitten. Altering is required for kittens sold as pets.
RESERVING & WAIT LIST:
Kittens are reserved on a "first come, first serve" basis for clients with deposits. A kitten can be chosen by photos and videos (upon request). We will do our best to send out an email notification announcing when kittens will be posted to the website and Facebook page. Please send us an email if you wish to be contacted when kittens are posted.
A contract will be provided with each kitten purchased. The contract is intended to protect the seller, buyer, and most importantly, the kittens. Our contract states that if there is a fatality due to a genetic illness during the first three years, the illness must be proven by a licensed veterinarian and a necropsy report. A replacement kitten will be offered when one is available. Each kitten has a 7 day health guarantee. We must be contacted within 7 days after adoption if there's a serious medical concern, diagnosed by a licensed vet; returning the kitten and replacement will be offered. We will not be held responsible for any medical expenses.
We discourage declawing of our kittens, but understand there can be problem situations. We recommend Soft Paws. Most Ragdoll owners realize they are not aggressive cats and if given the proper scratching furniture, they will not damage your home, and rarely react aggressively with their claws.
If you give your kitten the Feline Leukemia and/or FIP vaccines, all guarantees will be void. It is in our best interest to not have any health issues and we do our best to ensure a safe, healthy purchase. All buyers will be required to sign our legal contract before kittens leave our home. Please read our contract before purchasing a kitten from us.
All kittens are seen by our WONDERFUL vet : Quince Orchard Veterinary – Dr Anspaugh before they head home.
Please keep in mind when selecting and reserving kittens that all kittens need to be picked up within a week after the posted adoption date. If you cannot pick up your kitten within that week, please reserve a kitten in the next litter for a later time. All times and days must be confirmed within a week of the leaving date. If a scheduled time and day for pick-up is not confirmed within 2 weeks of the adoption date, the kitten shall be advertised as available and he/she will no longer be considered reserved and deposits will not be refunded. Adoption dates are determined by readiness of the kitten. We never try to "push" our kittens out the door, but we have kept kittens for up to a month (sometimes longer) after they were ready to leave. During those times, we are left unsure of whether the kitten is actually going to be picked up, as we have a small family cattery. We are not a kennel and cannot accommodate vacations or other events. We also do not want one kitten left all alone after the entire litter has moved on. This causes stress for the kitten, the mom, and all of us. The adoption date is based on age, ability, and required time for all preparation for leaving. If there is an unforeseen circumstance that arises which may cause a delay in picking your kitten up, please contact us as soon as possible, we're very easy to work with.
DELIVERY & SHIPPING:
We can arrange a transport pet courier if you live far away. We do not ship kittens in air cargo.
We live 30 minutes outside of our nation’s capital, so it is easy to fly in. We can bring your baby to the airport to meet you.
Please contact us for more information on shipping and/or delivery.
