Our ragdoll cats have their own accommodation, and do not run loose.
The girls, and young teenagers live in my home, and the kittens are born and raised with me.
This is to fully care for them, to give the kittens confidence and to socialize them well into family life.
I breed my ragdolls to be the best kittens, at the best price, in New Zealand.
My cats are all DNA tested, with swabs sent off to an offshore DNA testing facility, to check for the HCM (heart murmur ) and NPK (kidney disease) gene.
I then know that all offspring will be clear of these diseases.
Casual breeders that do not comply with this have a very high risk of kittens carring this deadly gene. Kittens can die at 2yrs of age, which is heart breaking.
A really good reason to buy from Registered breeders, which are now not a lot dearer than un registered, non compliant breeders.
