AVAILABLE CATS & KITTENS
The following cats and kittens are available to new homes subject to the new owner completing our vetting process. You will note most of the cats are available as pairs...
Why pairs are preferable
Most of our cats and kittens go to their new homes in pairs as the psychological benefits to the cats are enormous. Ragdolls have had the normal survival instincts dumbed down by selective breeding, so they are a danger to themselves if they are allowed outside unaccompanied. This makes their world smaller, and so we must ensure they have stimulation. Ragdolls are also prized for their sociable disposition and can be incredibly needy for attention and this can make them prone to loneliness. Even the most attentive of owners have other commitments, so in most circumstances we recommend a pair. Research has shown that the strongest feline bonds are between siblings. We spend a lot of time observing our cats and only the most independent go singly or to a home with another pet. Part of our observation process involves us watching for bonded pairs within a litter.
Once a pair of cats develop a strong bond, they become dependent on each other. They show their affection, by grooming each other, playing, sleeping, and lounging together. Bonded cats view their companionship as a source of comfort. This study by Dr Landsberg makes for interesting reading. Social Behavior of Cats
If you have a cat friendly dog, our kittens tend to get along well with well mannered dogs as we have dogs at home.
You will also notice we are not in ANY hurry to let our kittens leave and our kittens/young cats are usually older than those offered by other breeders. That is because they stay with us until they are 100% ready, or until we believe they are. Sometimes they stay a while longer whilst they recover from neutering, sometimes they stay longer because they were from a very small litter and need a bit longer to benefit from additional social interaction and sometimes it's just because we can't bear to part with them!
Please don't infer anything negative from the fact they are still here several months after we could have sold them, it's simply not about "selling " cats for us.
Learn more about them below and if you feel you can offer a loving, secure, indoor home please complete the form on the contact page.
Lucian & Lucia
The pair shown are Lucian (top) and his sister Lucia (below), they were the only two kittens born in this litter in July 21. Making them 8 months old. Whilst Lucia is generally very sociable, Lucian much prefers the company of men. We kept them back thinking he needed additional socialisation but over time we have realised this is not the case. He is lovely and gentle with everyone, just aloof with women. So, for his happiness, we are seeking a male-only environment. No problem with him living with ladies, just be prepared to be ignored! They are lovely, healthy cats. She makes up for her brothers awkwardness around women and likes to accompany you around the house, particularly enjoys relaxing in the bathroom with you whilst you enjoy a long soak. He loves to lick feet, especially if toes are poking out of the duvet. (male toes obviously!!) Neither like closed doors and she can open most internal doors quite deftly. These two MUST stay together and must have an indoor-only home, although access to a catio would be lovely. We have dogs and older children and they are fine with both. Beautiful cats with no vices or habits, feel free to contact us to discuss further. We are in no rush to part with these fantastic cats and they are only available to loving and obedient slaves. (Sorry, owners!!)
Trent & Tansie
Lively family home required for these two lovable rogues, dogs not a problem. These two are confident and cuddly. Tansie is a large, pretty and affectionate girl and her brother Trent has a similar disposition but is a blue colour pointed. Both are bold, bouncy and daft. These will be large adults. They love tummy rubs, cuddles and adventures. These two are only available together and must have an indoor-only home, although access to a catio would be lovely. We have dogs and older children and they are fine with both. Beautiful kittens with no vices or habits, feel free to contact us to discuss further. We are in no rush to part with these fantastic cats and they are only available to loving and obedient slaves.
Please get in touch to discuss forthcoming litters.
For those already on our list, we usually move fairly quickly as we believe it is unethical to get anyones hopes up and even mention kitten availability until the kittens have been vet checked at 11 weeks.
Unlike some who accept deposits based upon scan images, we believe in ensuring the kitten is fit and healthy before notifying the new family. So, please don't become disheartened if you have been waiting for a while, just drop us an email every now and then and we will be in touch soon.
