We give every kitten/cat their full attention, love, and care.

Your kitten comes with a health record and a health certificate, showing that the immunizations and de-worming are up-to-date.

We promise to be available, before and after the sale to answer all your questions, concerns, for the lifetime of your kitten/cat. 

Visiting your kitten:

We are a closed cattery, for health and safety reasons we don’t allow visits to our home. April 2020 we made the decision to close our cattery to the public, It was a tough decision to make, as we have enjoyed people visiting us in the past. The safety and health of our cats and kittens is our top priority. We have plenty of great reviews and references, and are open to scheduling video chats.


   A contract will be provided with each kitten purchased. The contract is intended to protect the seller, buyer, and most importantly, the kittens.

Please contact us if you’d like a copy of our contract in advance.

We update our sale contract sometimes, so if you have purchased from us before, your new contract might have a few changes.

Please read the contract before completing, and let us know if you have any questions.

You must be 18 years or older to sign a contract.

Note: a copy of your state ID/DL is required, as we need it to verify you are in fact older than 18 years old (by state law we cannot sign a legal contract with a minor). Also to ensure contact info provided on our sale contract belongs to the person signing the contract, and not using a fake name or contact info.

Please understand as we need to ensure all kittens sold as pet get spayed/neutered, we need to make sure we can reach you to obtain proof of spay/neuter.

Spay and neuter contract: We are required by TICA to obtain proof of spay/neuter on all kittens sold as pets, in order for us to abide by our contract with TICA, we need you to abide by your contract with us, by providing us proof of spay and neuter. 

We understand you may simply forget to send us proof of spay/neuter, we will email you a reminder or 2. We do not want or wish to have to take anyone to court, but if you breach our sale contract, you leave us with no other choice.

As a member of TICA’s responsible breeder program, we need to stand by TICA’s code of ethics.


 We will drive up to one hour to meet you with your kitten at no additional cost, any additional driving will be left up to our discretion. Delivery service to other states is available with a fee, starts at $550.00.

Note: any driving to meet or deliver will be decided upon availability of time.


We accept payments via Venmo, Apple Cash, and Paypal. We will send you a Venmo request or Paypal invoice after sending you your kitten’s contract. You can use any credit card, debit card, or echeck to pay. No fee will be added if paying via Venmo or Apple Cash, unless you select purchase protection, if so you will be charged that fee. A 3.1% Paypal fee will be added if paying Via Paypal.

Note: Payments to pay for your kitten/kittens in full, must be received one week before pickup/delivery, unless paying cash on pickup date.

Payments must clear before you can take your kitten home.

Pictures of your kitten:

We promise to take pictures of each kitten at least once every 3 weeks, any pictures we take sooner than every 3 weeks (once a week or once every 2 weeks), is subject to availability of time, the right lighting, and timing for the kittens.

Taking pictures can be very time consuming, as kittens most often don’t stay still. On average it takes about 45 minutes per session for each kitten, so kittens in the same litter may not have their pictures taken all in the same day, unless we are able to.

Pictures are posted to the kitten’s photo album on our Facebook page, we can send you the link for your kitten’s album.

We try to be fair to everyone waiting to take home their kitten, as we know the wait is tough, we do our best to take as many pictures as we can. Our priority is taking great care of our kittens, keeping their rooms clean, socializing and training. So taking pictures comes after those priorities. 


When we have kittens available, they will be listed with price.

Due to the drastic increase in our expenses, the price of our kittens will go up in 2023. Our pet price will start at $4150.00 plus sale tax.

They are priced to cover the cost of our investments, daily expenses, and to cover my hourly rate… I work 7 days a week, 50-70 hours per week when we have kittens, a minimum of 40 hours per week when we don’t have kittens. I also pay temp employees for help when needed. I plan to take 2 days off per week, to have somewhat of a normal work schedule, we have hired someone to cover for me 2 days a week.
On my 2 days off I won’t be checking my email or answering calls or texts, my days off will be listed on the available kittens page.

Note: we don’t feed kibbles and wet food, we only feed the highest quality cat food Stella and Chewy’s and it isn’t cheap! We never cheap out on caring for our Ragdolls, from toys and cat furniture replaced frequently, food and litter, cleaning supplies and products that are safe for our cats, vet care, DNA testing…

Every Breeder’s expenses are different, every year’s expenses are different, and has been increasing for the past several years. So our prices are subject to change in the future.

Price is listed on the sale contract, and won’t change after contract is signed.

Ragdoll kittens availability:

We only breed our queens 1-2 times per year, so we have a limited availability of kittens.

We have traditional Ragdoll kittens in almost every litter. Mink Ragdoll kittens in most litters. We only have white Ragdolls when we breed our white queen. We only have solid Ragdolls when we breed our solid queens. We don’t have sepia kittens that often, as we have to plan to breed 2 mink Ragdolls to produce a few sepia kittens.

 Please only complete this application when we have kittens available!
