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!!

Greetings! My name is Rachel and I welcome you to my cattery. Sunny Shores is a home-based cattery located in the beautiful central east coast city of Daytona Beach, Florida, just two blocks from the “World’s Most Famous Beach”. The cattery is owned and operated by myself, a veterinary technician since 1996 and I have been breeding Ragdolls since 2000, and working with the Toybob breed since 2020. My cats enjoy time in a 1300 square foot “apartment” right off our bedroom that is lined with windows on both sides and is filled with cat trees, towers, scratching posts, and lots of toys. Many have referred to it as cat Disney World! Enrichment is such a vital part of a cat’s world, and here at SunnyShores, kittens play free with their siblings, older kittens and my adult cats. And of course, let’s not forget the dog friends at SunnyShores; Wolf, a giant German Shepherd, and Phoebe, a Pit Bull. I have a house filled with fur and love!
Health and temperament are my MAIN goals. Kittens also have the opportunity to come to the veterinary clinic with me beginning around 7 weeks of age to get them used to a carrier and car rides. This is also an important step in early socialization since my co-workers LOVE playing with kittens!
I believe a cat should be an integral part of the family, sharing in everyday activities such as dinner time, tv time or nap time. Cats should greet visitors and lay in their lap and in my home, they do! Just come for visit and you’ll see!! I offer some of the very best in well socialized and lovable cats.
All kittens go home with:
~Age-appropriate kitten vaccines
~A Kitten Birth certificate and Pedigree
~All pet and show alter kittens will be spayed or neutered
~A Florida State Health Certificate (which includes an examination from my veterinarian, a negative feline leukemia/feline AIDS test, age-appropriate vaccines, a negative fecal test, and deworming)
~A FIVE year genetic/health guarantee
~30 days of free pet insurance with Trupanion
~TICA, CFA, and/or LCWW registration papers
~Implanted HomeAgain microchip with registration paperwork
~First dose of Revolution Plus applied

SunnyShores is proud to be a Genetically Tested cattery. As a reputable breeder, I testify that every cat/kitten has been produced from parents/bloodlines negative for the known DNA HCM and PKD mutation found in the Ragdoll breed, as well as over 50 other additional genetic diseases.
