There are many responsible Ragdoll cat breeders, and hopefully this list helps you in finding one.
It is very important you get your Ragdoll from a responsible breeder. You do not want to buy a kitten from a “kitten factory” or pet shop that does not give proper papers to your kitten.
It is crucial the kitten can have at least 12 weeks to develop – all too often kitten are sold too young and this may affect the development of their personality. If a kitten is weaned from its mother too early and raised in stressful conditions, even a Ragdoll can develop a less-than-happy personality. But a kitten which grows in a peaceful and friendly home with regular contact with people should be well socialized and loving as an adult (But always remember every cat is a personality of its own and some are more affectionate than others.) Also the immune system of a kitten that has been with its mother and siblings long enough develops to a healthy level.
A responsible breeder will take care to make the best genetic match possible for a new kitten, so that it will be healthy.
Always demand that your Ragdoll kitten is registered. It only costs a few dollars for the breeder to register their litter if the parents of the kitten are registered. So if your breeder says the kitten is not registered because it costs so much, you can draw your conclusions… You are probably not dealing with a responsible breeder with registered cats. It may even be you are talking with a “kitten factory”.
Also if you are sold a lilac or chocolate ragdoll kitten, remember that the color darkens to its real color for two years. So you might be sold a seal or blue kitten that has not simply reached its true color yet. The only way to know if you really are buying a lilac or chocolate Ragdoll, ask for a DNA test or be sure your breeder specializes in those colors and knows how to tell if they are lilac or chocolate.
