All our Ragdolls are TICA registered, we obtain pedigrees for all our Ragdoll breeders and will be happy to provide you with copies before purchasing your kitten/kittens.
We pride ourselves on engaging in ethical breeding; inbreeding and overbreeding are not options for us! Our breeding males are kept separate from our breeding females, we only have planned pregnancies, that are arranged by Jamila. Our queens will have 1-2 litters per year, and we give our kings breaks as well. Over breeding results in unhealthy cats and kittens, not only for the females, but males as well, that's why we have multiple kings, so each king can take a 4-6 month break, to get their focus off breeding and on to gaining weight and being the loving social pet that Ragdolls are.
All our Ragdoll breeders are tested negative for FIV, FeLV, and our cattery is free of FIP. All our Ragdoll breeders are DNA tested, and are negative for HCM, PKD, MPS VI and other known genetic disorders.
Ragdolls are the perfect companion pet:
Ragdoll cats make the perfect companion pets! Ragdolls have dog-like personalities, are very focused on spending time with people, will follow you room to room to spend time with you, love to snuggle on your lap for long periods every day, and are fantastic with children/dogs/and other pets. Ragdolls are stunning large mellow cats that are very gentle, affectionate, and intelligent. Ragdolls can be easily trained and are natural people pleasers so they are very easy to train on scratching posts, can learn to fetch, and can quickly be taught to stay off of certain tables/counters/etc. Because Ragdolls are so docile and crave physical contact and interaction they very quickly bond with children, dogs, other cats, and most other pets. Ragdolls are known for going limp when held and most Ragdolls enjoy attention so much that children can lug them around and play with them without worry that they will scratch or bite. Ragdolls are very clean and easy to care for pets, with coats that are low shedding and require very little grooming to stay plush and beautiful. Ragdolls are considered hypo-allergenic and most people with pet allergies have little or no symptoms to the Ragdolls low dander coats. Ragdolls are the top recommended cat breed for companionship and are often recommended by doctors for retired individuals and also for special needs children.

About me (Jamila):
My 1st cat:
I have always loved cats, my 1st kitten was at 4 years old, she belonged to my grandmother but I always called her mine. I remember her so clearly, more clear than somethings that happened last year. kiki moon was a solid dark gray persian like, that was my 1st connection with cats, I still remember she was so young when I held her in my arms, she was trying to nurse on my pink T-shirt, drooling all over it, with the loudest 1st purr my ears and heart have heard.
My 1st litter of kittens:
I was 5 or 6 at the time, when my calico cat gave birth to her babies, I remember the card board box, the smell of those very cute babies. Every time I have a litter born now, I always get that great feeling of happiness and excitement, just like a 5 year old all over again.
My years with cats in Libya:
1991 my dad took me to Libya, I was almost 7 years old at the time. I grew up being around cats, cats that are not as fortunate as ones here. I wanted to save them all, and took care of them the best I could. I did not have cat food, so I would eat my vegetables and other things and save my meat to give to the cats.
At a young age, I learned so much about cats and their health, I raised orphan kittens, I tamed wild ones, I loved them with all my heart.
As my mom was still here and I lived 1991-1995 without a mother, I filled that void with cats, they were my everything.
Returning home (to the USA):
With the help of the US embassy, I was able to return home Sep 13 2006. I had to start from zero, worked 2 jobs riding a bike from and to home. 2008 I got my federal job, got my 1st car and moved out of my small apartment.
My 1st Ragdolls:
2009 was when I started searching for Ragdoll kittens, I was only planing on one when I was searching. Things don't always go as planned, I got Sicily and Prince with breeding rights.
2010 I brought Sicily home from the airport, it was one of the best days of my life, that's when I fell in love with the Ragdoll breed.
Becoming a breeder:
I started breeding while still working at my Federal Job, at 1st my plan was Sicily and Prince only, ..... but then I got Khaleesi, Leah, ...............
As I obtained more Ragdolls, and more responsibility of raising these kittens. I left my federal job after 5 years of service, to dedicate all my time to these loving Ragdolls.
My Ragdolls are my life, I dedicate my life to raising them.
