OsoChic's GCCF Pedigree Ragdoll cats live with us as part of the family. We recognise the importance of the first 13 weeks of a kitten's life & that's why we include, adore & nurture our kittens within our home. I'm grateful to my family for their ongoing support of my passion & commitment to this breed & as such I will refer to Osochic going forward as 'we', as it takes teamwork to provide the best possible holistic care for our furry dream team. We strongly believe our method of raising kittens is reflected in their temperament. As a close family unit with extended family & loyal friends we often enjoy the company of respectful visitors, especially when we have little furry things bobbing about the house! This enables our kittens to have positive social experiences with all age groups, which is vital for development & also for when they eventually transition to their new homes. 

We lve the big, silky coated teddy-bear look!  Never forgetting the importance of preserving the Ragdolls best quality, the o-so coveted, relaxed & floppy temperament. Our truly scrumptious felines are cherished members of our family. We have managed successfully to balance health screening, feline husbandry & a typical loving home environment, promoting a holistic care approach. 

The Ragdoll breed was created in the 1960's, which is a very short amount of time in comparison to other more established breeds. This is why we believe widening the gene pool is so important for breeding & creating 'adaptability' & therefore 'survival'.  Charles Darwin in his Origin of Species had a lot to say on the subject & it is the bedrock of his theory of the survival of the fittest, & consequently evolution. The process of widening & strengthening a gene pool promotes health; so extremely important when that gene pool is so small due to its infancy. This is the very reason why our Ragdoll family have been imported from other countries. Admittedly, this is not an inexpensive theory to put into practice as the costs are huge, but since valuing the diverse imported lines from strong boned, stunning, health tested, show quality Ragdolls, we have not only been rewarded with success on the show bench but also healthy, beautiful, kittens & of course established super friendships with other breeders worldwide.

Occasionally we have pedigree Ragdoll kittens for sale to approved loving homes.  We offer adorable, quality, registered GCCF Ragdoll kittens, in our bid to produce our next show hopeful. We strive to thoughtfully create not only beautiful, but healthy, true to type, well socialised kittens, with stunning blue eyes, soft plush coats & most loving dispositions.

Our prefix 'OsoChic' is registered with the GCCF & our Ragdoll cats are on the 'Active Register'.  We are one of the few breeders based in the South West of England on the GCCF Responsible Breeder Scheme, which states,'to only mate a queen who is healthy and in good condition, and only as often as is appropriate for her wellbeing.' Some queens need to be mated up more than once a year, others less than once a year. You do what is in the best interest of the cat, not the owner.

In accordance with the GCCF code of practice 'if' we choose to breed this is done so in accordance with their regulations.  Our queen is paired with our boy & placed in one room with supervision for a few days. When pregnant she will have free rein of the house again. When the time is near she will start to nest so she is in a totally stress free, hygienic, comfortable & a familiar setting. Kittens are raised in this quiet environment until 4 weeks of age, at which point they can explore the play room. At eight weeks old they are mature enough to explore the rest of our home. They remain with us until approximately 13 weeks of age.

  

To maintain optimum health we do not share our boy for stud services. The holistic welfare of our cats & kittens is always our top priority.  It is important to keep in mind many catteries do carry some diseases that are common to cats & can affect any breed, including any you may have at home already!  We take sensible precautions advised by our vet to prevent diseases entering our home.

Characteristics of the Ragdoll Cat


The Ragdoll is a large, blue-eyed, colour-pointed cat. Their size, blue eyes & captivating appearance certainly make them stand out. They are equally cherished for their calm & loving disposition. The Ragdoll is extremely sociable, thriving on human companionship. They are often found following their owners room to room or quietly cuddled up on the lap of their human companions. They are extremely kind, loyal & trusting & make the best of pets for young & old alike.


Ragdoll Cats are indoor cats

Their docile & non-aggressive personality makes it hard for them to fend for themselves outdoors. They have no road sense. They happily make friends with strangers, making them desirable to thieves!


Ragdoll cats are semi-long haired, although only usully require brushing regularly once weekly due to their single coat which feels like soft rabbit fur.  However, they do shed hair in Spring & Autumn. In clement weather a secure garden enclosure is of benefit for 'experiencing the elements' for short periods . A Ragdolls size will usually range from 8-14 lbs for a female and 14-20 lbs for a male. Ragdolls will generally reach full maturity for size & colour at approximately 3 years of age.


They usually get along with most other household pets with the proper introduction. Known for being an extremely intelligent breed, the Ragdoll cat is a quick learner & eager to please. This makes them very biddable & very easy to train. It is not uncommon to hear of Ragdolls that have learnt to fetch! You can easily train your Ragdoll as well with proper positive reinforcement & rewards. This should make teaching them to stay off high surfaces, not to scratch furniture etc, a fairly simple task with proper encouragement. We willingly start this process for you whilst they are with us as, to give the best chance of every family being thrilled with their new addition.


Known to be quieter vocally by comparison to some of the more talkative breeds such as the Siamese. Ragdolls instead make a super 'chirrup' noise, which is very endearing & they respond well if you master talking back with the same chirrup noise! Sometimes enabling you to have a complete conversation! lol. They are extremely devoted to their owners, a Ragdoll will want to be part of everything you do. Although Ragdolls are fairly docile they do still love to play! Our kitties love nothing more than to bat a fluffy toy or have a little ball to carry around in their mouths. It is advised to provide your Ragdoll with stimulating toys that will arouse their interest & amuse; to ecourage physical & emotional wellbeing.
