Rachel Zimmer – SunnyShores Cattery, Daytona Beach, FL

Unfortunately, we now live in an age where online kitten sales have become rampant with scammers.  Individuals will often have a very nice website with glowing testimonials, offer MUCH lower prices, have no or very little online/social media presence, accept only wire transfers for payment and ask for complete payment upfront, will never allow kitten pick up from the cattery, will never speak to you on the phone, and will never be able to provide actual personal or vet references.  These are just some of the examples to watch out for in online kitten scams.

I’m happy to say I am not a kitten scammer!!

SunnyShores is proud to be a Genetically Tested cattery.  As a reputable breeder, I testify that every cat/kitten has been produced from bloodlines negative for the known DNA HCM and PKD mutation found in the Ragdoll breed.  


All kittens go home with;

~Age appropriate kitten vaccines


~A Florida State Health Certificate (which includes an examination from my veterinarian,  a negative feline leukemia/feline AIDS test, a negative fecal test, and deworming)

~A FIVE year genetic/health guarantee

~30 days of free pet insurance with Trupanion

TICA or CFA registration papers

~Implanted HomeAgain microchip with registration paperwork

~First dose of Revolution Plus, a baby blanket and toys

~Lifetime support from a knowledgeable breeder/veterinary technician with over 20 years experience


A portion of every Sunny Shores kitten is donated to The EveryCat Foundation
“To improve the health and welfare of all cats”

All kittens go home with 30 days of free pet insurance

$500 deposits (which will come off the final price of kitten) are non-refundable, but may be transferred to a different kitten/cat. Deposits are taken AFTER kittens are born to place a hold on a kitten so it will not be made available to anyone else.  Deposits are accepted in the form of cash, money order, personal checks, VISA, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Zelle, Venmo or PayPal.  Final payment due the day your kitten goes home.  Final payments are accepted in the form of cash, money order, personal checks,VISA, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Zelle, Venmo, or PayPal.

Pet Quality.   $2000-$2800  plus state of Florida mandated sales tax of 6.5%.  A pet quality kitten is the perfect new addition to a family. They are sweet, loving, gentle, and playful.  While they may be less than perfectly marked, they have all the “purrsonality” you’re looking for. All pet quality kittens are spayed or neutered (no exceptions) and microchipped.

Please note, I do not encourage buying two kittens from the same litter; litter mates have a tendency to bond more to each other than to members of their new family.  If you’re wanting two kittens, my recommendation is to get your first kitten then add the second kitten several months later.

Show Quality.  $2800-$3500 plus state of Florida mandated sales tax of 6.5%.  A show quality kitten is a family pet first and foremost.  The difference? A beautiful, perfectly marked kitten you can take to have fun in the show halls!  If you’re looking for a fun hobby the whole family can enjoy then get a show cat.   Show quality kittens are spayed or neutered (no exceptions) and microchipped.

Breeding Quality.
  Price Varies,  based on markings, type and pedigree of each individual cat.  We offer breeding quality cats occasionally to small registered Ragdoll catteries only which practice early spay/neuter.  ALL SUNNY SHORES RAGDOLL BREEDERS ARE GUARANTEED DNA HCM NEGATIVE! Contact us for more details.  Anyone I sell a breeding cat to must share my ideals and goals for the Ragdoll breed.

Domestic and International shipping available.  I use a variety of methods to ship; Delta Pet First, United Airlines Pet Travel, and personalized courier services both flying and driving.  We can decide which method is best for you if your kitten needs to be shipped. 

I encourage the mother/kitten bond until I feel each kitten establishes his own independence, social nature, and character.  Therefore,  k
ittens generally leave the cattery between 12-18 weeks of age. Why can’t my kitten come home any earlier?
