Please do your research before choosing your pedigree kitten

 

Find a reputable, ethical & honest registered breeder to purchase your 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.



  • No kitten should leave a breeder without a registration certificate & pedigree papers.
  • No kitten should leave a breeder without being protected against disease. (2x primary kitten vaccinations).
  • No kitten should leave a breeder before 13 weeks of age.
  • No kitten should leave a breeder before treatment against internal & external parasites at various appropriate stages of life. 
  • No kitten should leave a breeder without proof that both parents have been tested for diseases, including HCM.
  • No kitten should leave a breeder before the potential owner has checked out the legitimacy and integrity of the breeder.
  • No kitten should be without their Mum for the first 12 weeks of life.


  • Do not buy kittens that come with no pedigree papers, even registered breeders are not allowed to do this. If anything goes wrong with the kitten after purchase you will have little or NO redress!
  • Unregistered means the kitten is basically a moggy!  Sadly, increasingly people with little or no experience are tempted to breed two unneutered pedigree cats they've managed to get hold of, without knowing their history or lineage, so inbreeding problems, disease and unnecessary suffering 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 minefield 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 and 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 you are unsure if a breeder is registered, ask for proof of registration.  If they won't supply this, go elsewhere.  You can check this yourself.  ( To check if with the  GCCF, tel'  01278 427575 ).           
  • If advertised, HCM tested, ask to see the original paperwork as proof, a good breeder will not be offended. (ensure the actual kittens' parents are tested & not just the grand parents!) - This disease is prevelent in this breed and needs to be checked for!
  • If advertised; 'parents are health tested ask for proof  & check the cats names correlate with the 'parents' of your kitten. A good breeder will not be offended.
  • 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- This can look quite official but these are rules applied by a breeder to protect the cat, the breeder's reputation & the breeding bloodlines. This is legally binding. Read it thoroughly before any purchase & ask the breeder to explain anything you don't understand.
  • Ensure you're given a receipt. AND make sure you are asked to 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! Don't be fooled.
  • 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? Is there an overwhelming cat smell? Do the adult cats look clean, content, healthy & groomed? Are they part of the family indoors? Are they sociable & friendly?
  • Never go from one breeder to another without washing your hands thoroughly & changing your clothing, as you could cause cross infection/contamination, especially regarding little ones. We prefer you choose a different day entirely please.
  • 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. The kitten's coat should look & feel healthy; you should not see or feel any dry skin or scabs. Gently blow the hair on the back from the tail to the neck to see if free of fleas. Flea poo looks like tiny black/brown flecks. If you are in doubt, walk away. A kitten should be clean, playing happily, bright eyed & bushy tailed, not listless or grubby.
  • If advertised as a rare colour & asking a premium price, ask to see the colour DNA genetics certificate. Is it possible to get that colour kitten from the potential kittens parents? Click here for Link to a 'Ragdoll kitten colour predictor' to help you find out. 
  • If advertised as a 'closed' cattery, This term means the breeder ONLY breeds from the cats in residence at their property & does NOT allow their stud boy to mate other females, or their females to mate with other stud cats outside of their home.   
  • 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 & don't want anyone official to find out! 
  • Never pay for a kitten BEFORE seeing it !!! 






♥ The responsibility of owning a new kitten 

 

            For the kitten's life to ensure you;


  • Vaccinate appropriately.
  • Allow proper vet care when sick or injured (if in doubt, always seek advice from your vet).
  • Maintain an adequate worming & flea regime.
  • Keep kitties claws clipped. If unsure ask your vet to show you.
  • Provide regular, appropriate, nutritious meals with a constant supply of fresh water.
  • Provide a clean & comfortable bed.
  • Provide clean, regularly emptied litter trays.
  • Provide a safe & stimulating environment.
  • Provide plenty of human companionship.
  • Ensure young children are monitored and shown how to be gentle with their new kitten.

               


  ♥ In addition; ...... As the new owner of a OsoChic Ragdoll Kitten;


  • Keep your kitten in a quiet room for 72 hours to let them settle in, (with absolutely NO introductions to any other animals).
  • Do not let young children over fuss or overwhelm.
  • Allow kitty to rest, sleep, eat & drink after playing; this is imperative to their development & wellbeing.
  • Introduce other pets 'after' one week & then gradually over a few weeks period.
  • Acknowledge Ragdolls are indoor cats.
  • Insure kitty after free period for at least three years of age with same cover guarantees.
  • Abide by our Sales Contract. (breach of contract will result in legal action).
  • Gently groom kitty once a week.
  • A great bonus is a secure, easily cleaned (daily), garden enclosure so they can enjoy the fresh air with shelter.
  • To provide a varied diet of appropriate nutritional foods - dried, wet meat pouches & cooked fresh foods (& some raw if possible).

  Please note ;

  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, so please do not be offended.
