What is a Breeder?
A Breeder (with a capital B) is one who thirsts for knowledge and never really knows it all, one who wrestles with decisions of conscience, convenience, and commitment.
A Breeder is one who sacrifices personal interests, finances, time, friendships, fancy furniture, and deep pile carpeting!
She gives up the dreams of a long, luxurious cruise in favor of turning that all-important Show into this year’s “vacation”.
The Breeder goes without sleep, but never without coffee!
Hours are spent planning a breeding or watching anxiously over the birth process, and afterwards, over every little sneeze, wiggle or cry.
The Breeder skips dinner parties because that litter is due or the babies have to be fed at eight.
She disregards birth fluids and puts mouth to mouth to save a gasping newborn,
literally blowing life into a tiny, helpless creature that may be the culmination of a lifetime of dreams.
A Breeder’s lap is a marvelous place where generations of proud and noble champions once snoozed.
A Breeder’s hands are strong and firm and often soiled, but ever so gentle and sensitive to the thrusts of a kittens’ wet nose.
A Breeder’s back and knees are usually arthritic from stooping, bending, and sitting in the birthing box, but are strong enough to enable the breeder to show the next choice kit to a championship.
A Breeder’s shoulders are stooped and often heaped with abuse from competitors, but they’re wide enough to support the weight of a thousand defeats and frustrations.
A Breeder’s arms are always able to wield a mop, support an armful of kittens, or lend a helping hand to a newcomer.
A Breeder’s ears are wondrous things, sometimes red (from being talked about) or strangely shaped (from being pressed against a phone receiver), often deaf to criticism, yet always fine-tuned to the whimper of a sick kitten.
A Breeder’s eyes are blurred from pedigree research and sometimes blind to her own cat’s faults, but they are ever so keen to the competition’s faults and are always searching for the perfect specimen.
A Breeder’s brain is foggy on faces, but it can recall pedigrees faster than an IBM computer. It’s so full of knowledge that sometimes it blows a fuse: it catalogs thousands of good bonings, fine ears, and perfect heads… and buries in the soul, the failures and the ones that didn’t turn out.
Retired Ragdolls make great pets. This page is for upcoming Retiree’s. All retired Raggies are 350.00
They come Vetted, Vaccinated and Spayed or Neutered. They have been apart of our breeding program so they are Negative for Fiv/Felv and are Negative for HCM, Pkd Etc by genetic testing and/or lineage. Most make great additions and an easy transition to a new home but still they are scared and need to be given adequate time to destress and learn their new routine. Sometimes this takes a few weeks. We have NEVER caged our cats so they have enjoyed our home as any pet would.
Due to the fire that destroyed our home and cattery a couple of years ago some are a bit timid as we went thru quite an ordeal. These cats will do better in Adult only home and preferable seniors as they enjoy much quieter lives. Here is the other info you need to know…..
All Adult’s are adopted on a contract of NO Declawing and if you cannot keep them then you are responsible to find them a new appropriate home.
NO DUMPING AT A SHELTER or RESCUE.
To reserve you kitty 1/2 must be put down as a deposit, the other half is due upon pick up (you MUST bring a kitty carrier) All Sales areas AS IS and FINAL, No REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES.
