To be on the kitten waiting list please text (817) 781-2059. There is a $250 non refundable deposit required to be on the waiting list which means you are waiting to pick up the actual kitten that you picked out.
I only start a waiting list after the kittens are born and I can tell the likely color and gender and the kittens have received their first inoculation by the veterinarian at about 7 weeks of age. I will text you pictures, optional visitation date, pick up date and directions. Check these dates carefully, to ensure they fit for you. Each day a kitten is left in my care after the available pick up date there is a $25 charge. At times it is not possible for me to keep your kitten after pick up date.
A waiting list is the list of buyers that have picked out their actual live kitten. Some of the following Q & A’s may help you more firmly decide the kitten that best fits for you.
Q: Are you looking for show quality or pet quality and what is the difference?
A: A show quality Ragdoll needs to meet as closely as possible the Ragdoll Standard set by either The International Cat Association (TICA) or the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA), …understanding that THERE IS NO KITTEN/CAT THAT PERFECTLY MATCHES THE STANDARD, but there are kittens that do not meet the standard. These kittens are pet quality. Most of the kittens bread at Ragdolls Totally Terrific are show quality.
Q: What is the most important quality in any Ragdoll?
A: Good Health.
Q: What is the most important guarantee regarding Ragdoll Kitten Health?
A: The signs and symptoms ones sees when visiting the Cattery and looking at the adult cats as well as the kittens. See the information pasted below from our Cattery page. It is always a good idea to visit the cattery from which you buy your kitten or cat and Look For:
- genetics that have no HCM and lines that are FIP free
- the number of cat boxes per cat. Jackson Galaxy, cat behaviorist suggests 1 cat box per cat + one. So for three adult cats there should be four cat boxes and if there are 30 cats in a cattery there should be 31 cat boxes.
- cat furniture that will give cats the ability to exercise and feel at home
- a cattery that does not have a smell of urine or feces
- cat and kittens eyes that are bright and discharge free. Any watery or pus discharge would mean medical problems.
- look at the cat and kittens ears. Hair missing could also mean medical problems.
- look closely at the adult cats. Stroke their fur are they balding? This could mean medical problems.
- look at the kittens rectum. Hair missing around the anus could mean a kitten that has been suffering with chronic diarrhea. A kitten whose rectum protrudes could mean the kitten is suffering from constipation. Look at the kittens litter box. Look at the poop. Correctly formed poop looks like a tootsi role. Too much fiber or bone looks like sausages tied together, too loose a stool looks like a pile of pudding. Well formed stool is an indicator of good health.
- When you pay for your kitten you should receive a breeder slip that can be sent to The International Cat Association (TICA) or The Cat Fancier’s Association (CFA) to receive the cats Certificate of Registration
- Plan on taking your kitten to the vet within 24 hours. The only exception I would make to this is if the breeder will provide a receipt from the veterinarian showing that the kitten has been seen by a veterinarian within the last month.
- Make sure to receive a written contract as well as health records.
