Osochic Ragdolls Ragdoll Kitten Purchase Guide 


 Guidelines to Advise & Protect you when buying a genuine pedigree, Ragdoll Kitten.

What to look for and ask a breeder proof of when thinking of buying a pedigree kitten.

And, what to expect!

Please do your research before choosing your Ragdoll kitten

Find a reputable, ethical & honest registered breeder to purchase your Ragdol kitten/cat from.

Reputable Registered cat breeders will operate from a suitable, hygienic, homely location & will offer a full history of the condition, health & lineage of the kittens & cats they have.

A good breeder will always ask questions about you, your home & the environment their kitty will potentially be going to; this is because we want the best for them and to increase the chances of experiences being positive for them and you going forward,

 ⭐️  No kitten should leave a breeder ⭐️

 ⭐️  Without a registration certificate & pedigree papers.

 ⭐️  Without being protected against disease. (2x primary kitten vaccinations).

 ⭐️  Until a week AFTER their last 2nd vaccinations.

 ⭐️  Before treatment against internal & external parasites at various appropriate stages of life. 

 ⭐️  Without proof that both parents have been tested for diseases, including the one known Ragdoll HCM.

 ⭐️  Before the potential owner has checked out the legitimacy and integrity of the breeder.

  • Do not buy kittens that come with no pedigree papers,even registered breeders are not allowed to do this. 
  • Unregistered means the kitten is basically a moggy!  increasingly people with little or no experience are breeding two unneutered Ragdolls, without knowing their history or lineage, so inbreeding problems, genetic disease is possible, if not probable.
  • NB - A Responsible Registered breeder checks for disease in their adult cats; breed prone, hereditary & contagious diseases. They have an understanding of the coefficient of inbreeding (or coi). The coi  is not a measure of health. It is a measure of risk, and with or without DNA tests, it is the best way to judge the level of genetic risk you are taking when you breed a litter. Therefore, if you have no history on the 2 breeding cats the RISKS are beyond HUGE!!!! You may as well throw a dice, hope for the best and pray for the litters future especially in pedigree cats & especially so of the Ragdoll as the breed is still in its infancy & so the gene pool is very small.  Therefore, It is not the same as breeding moggies, that have been established since 8,000 BC. 
  • If advertised, HCM tested, ask to see the test results as proof.
  • If advertised; 'parents are health tested for other conditions other than HCM, ask for proof.
  • When purchasing a Pedigree kitten, you should receive a three, four or five generation pedigree certificate.  It should be properly completed & signed by the breeder showing all the breed numbers & registration numbers of all the cats within the lineage,  ensure it includes the breeder's name & address.
  • When purchasing a genuine Pedigree kitten, you should receive a Registration Certificate from the governing body the breeder is registered, with all the kitten's registered details included on it. 
  • The Sales Contract-These are rules applied by a breeder to protect the cat, the breeder's reputation & the breeding bloodlines. 
  • Ensure you're given a receipt. AND pay via a recognised source. NO cashapp etc or any other unsafe source. 
  • BOTH kitten's parents must be registered 'active' on the active register, to be able to register a kitten! 
  • When did the mother of the kitten last have a litter?  Some breeders over breed their queens, so don’t allow their breeding queens enough time to recover & replenish to their optimum physical state. 'Greeders' don't prioritise the mums welfare. An undernourished Mum = undernourished & sick kittens.
  • What is the animal husbandry like of the breeder? Clean home? Litter trays empty? Do the adult cats look clean & content?When you are deciding on a kitten Give kitty a discreet look over, check the ears, eyes, nose & bottom. Never buy a kitten with discharge coming from any of these areas. A kitten should be clean, playing happily, bright eyed , not listless or grubby.
  • If advertised as a rare colour& asking a premium price, ask to see the colour DNA genetics certificate. 
  • If a breeder advertises 'pedigree' Ragdoll kittens, but says the kitten will be unregistered, or to have kitty registered to something else, question their ethics as this is against the GCCF regulations. Sadly people lacking integrity use GCCF in their adverts as a lure & are not members. Or, sell unregistered because they have already bred from the Mum recently and shouldn't have bred again within that time frame set by their cat registry & don't want anyone official to find out!
