Getting A Kitten

We currently have kittens available to loving forever homes 
  It is always an exciting time around our home when kittens arrive. Kittens are born in a private nursery off of our  lounge. They graduate to the kitten room (Our Living Room and Kitchen ) where they start eating dried food/wet foods. Also, this is where their mum teaches them to use the litter box.  Next, is the trip to the vet and their first vaccinations at 9 weeks of age.  Our kittens are given all the love they deserve.  At this time we welcome visitors by appointment but, ask that you do not visit another other cattery on the same day.
This is for the protection of our  cats and your kitten.
 
When you decide to get a kitten from us, your kitten will be GCCF registered, had their  vaccinations, vet checked, wormed, flea treated with Frontline (not that any of our cats have ever had flea's!!)  We also offer you the choice of having your kitten microchipped prior to coming to their new home, at NO EXTRA COST! They are also spoilt,  fully groomed prior to leaving us going to their new home. Because Ragdolls mature a lot slower than most other breeds, they will usually not be ready to leave us until they are at least thirteen weeks old.  Vaccinations can not commence until the kittens are 9 weeks of age and the second jab can not be  done until  the age of 12 weeks, after which time we like to monitor the kittens for any adverse reaction to the jabs etc. Sometimes their bodies react to the jabs and a small lump (the size of a garden pea) can be felt under the skin near to the vaccination site.  This is nothing to worry about, the lump will disappear as quickly as it appeared!  Nor is any vet treatment required! So to save the new owner being worried this is why we like to monitor the kittens!  We spend a great deal of time with our kittens, giving them all the love and affection they so richly deserve - and then even more cuddles and kisses! We believe this is so important in rearing happy confident socialised healthy cats. They are all raised with us as part of the family; their health is never compromised. 

 NONE OF OUR KITTENS ARE RAISED OUTSIDE IN A CATTERY!!!
Serentiy
 When ready to leave us, your Ragdoll Kitten will have been fully socialised, and will be very content with all the sights and sounds that they are likely to encounter on their arrival at their new home.

Rearing each litter is a complete and utter joy to us, with each kitten having its own unique personality. All are very endearing, and each one has brought us many hours of pleasure with their cuddles and humorous antics. Therefore, finding our kittens a secure lifelong home, where they will be loved and cared for like a cherished family member, is a priority to us.  We strive to find  responsible homes where it is recognised that the acquisition of a Ragdoll as a pet, although very rewarding, is also a long-term commitment of time, love and money.

What You Will Get...When your kitten is ready to leave us, you will receive their vaccination certificate, microchip certificate, a copy of their pedigree, samples of the food they have been eating, a Ragdoll care booklet (that we have put together to help the transition in to your home), their favourite toys that they have become attached to,  and a list of recommendations for an assortment of essential accessories that you will require. Free Pet Insurance for the first few weeks  the kitten is in its new home.

Please note that we cannot be held responsible for your kitten climbing up your legs/curtains/jumping on the sofa and generally causing havoc in the first few weeks in their new forever homes!

Upon collection of your beloved raggie kitten, you will need to bring a sturdy carrier to take your kitten home. We suggest you purchase a carrier that will hold up to 20 lbs. Your kitten will not stay little for very long!. A good carrier will be between £20.00 - £30.00 and can be found at all good pet stores.  ***We will give you a comfort blanket, which has the smells of your kittens siblings on it, to ensure it doesn't become distressed whilst travelling to your home****

  
Unfortunately due to time wasters, we  now ask for deposit, of £100 per kitten, which is non returnable if you change your mind.  (the money would then be donated to the rehoming programme).
 
If you feel you can give a kitten a wonderful home, please email or ring me for availability on 07834 327 937, please ensure that you ring at a reasonable time. ****Please note we are happy to supply photos of your chosen kitten once you have been to visit, but we are not able to send photos to people making general enquiries, we don't wish to offend, some of photos emailed in the past have somehow found there way on to other sites.  Therefore we no longer do this.
