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!!

All kittens go home with 30 days of free pet insurance

 Trupanion medical insurance for your pet


$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, or if going with the pet nanny 24 hours before travel.

Pet Quality Ragdoll kittens.   $2500 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.

Pet Quality Toybob kittens.  $1200 (non standard aka long tail)-$2500 (standard aka short tail) plus state of Florida mandated sales tax of 6.5%.  Kittens at the low end of pricing will be what is considered “non standard” aka will have a longer tail.

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 Ragdoll or Toybob.  $2800-$4000 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, perfect 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 catteries only which practice early spay/neuter. Anyone I sell a breeding cat to must share my ideals and goals for the Ragdoll or Toybob 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, Ragdoll kittens generally leave the cattery between 13-18 weeks of age, and Toybobs between 16-22 weeks of age.

Why can’t my kitten come home any earlier?

Kittens are adorable and curious creatures, but there are important reasons why it’s best to wait until they’re a bit older before bringing them home:

  1. Socialization Period: Kittens have a critical socialization period from 2 to 9+ weeks of age. During this time, their brains are open to new experiences, and they tend to view them as interesting rather than frightening. Socializing kittens during this window helps them adapt to living in human homes and become confident and friendly members of the family.
  2. Stress and Adjustment: Moving to a new home is stressful for any cat, especially young kittens. They need time to get used to the smells, sounds, and layout of their new environment.  A kitten that is too young may lack the confidence to properly adjust to its new home.
  3. Health and Development: Young kittens have smaller reserves, and any disruption in their eating or drinking can lead to dehydration. Waiting until they’re a bit older ensures they’re better equipped to handle the transition. Additionally, kittens need to learn essential skills from their mother and siblings, such as food sourcing and social behaviors, which takes time.

Remember, patience pays off! When you finally bring your kitten home, they’ll be better adjusted, healthier, and ready to explore their new world. 🐾

We reserve the right to decline the sale of our cats or kittens at any time to anyone whom we believe is not a suitable home for one of our felines.
