Price Of A Ragdoll Baby and General Information
I am a member of ÖVEK, an
Austrian Club for Cat Breeders affiliated to FIFe and a member of Ragdoll Club "The IG Ragdoll". Breeders have to
observe the statutes and articles of these clubs, otherwise they are fined or
in case of repeated infringement of their rules, expelled from the club(s).
Occasionally pet buyers would not mind getting their Ragdoll without a pedigree or think that they don´t need one as they never intend to breed. I usually tell them that a pedigree is a kind of certificate issued by the club to confirm that the respective breeder observes the rules and regulations of the club.
Preconditions for Breeding

female cats must be 12 months + when mated for the first time;

regulations concerning this issue);
kittens must be vaccinated
twice against flu and panleukopenia
before they leave the cattery.
Important Information About My Babies

cattery before 12 weeks of age.
