2,000$ : Includes spay/neuter, all kitten shots for the first year, ISO microchip, litter and individual registration (CFA), 2 year health guarantee, parents or ancestors DNA tested for feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and PKD (Persian variety), and all sales taxes (GST/PST).
Kittens are usually ready to leave for their new families after 16 weeks of age. The kittens leave with their health records including medical history and vaccination certificates, all administered by licenced veterinarians. You will also be provided with a kitten kit including, plenty of instructions, food and a favorite toy.
The purchase process usually involves a few telephone or e-mail exchanges in order to answer any questions you may have, and allow us to get to know each other. If you decide to write, in addition to your questions, please tell us a little about you, your familly (2 ans 4 legged), your past experience with cats or other animals, as well as any needs or expectations you may have for a futur pet. Under normal circumstances, we encourage a visit before you actually make a deposit for a reservation so that you can meet some of our Ragdolls in the flesh. However, COVID-19 has made visits more complicated. We do not allow in home visits at this time. We try to do everything by phone or on-line. Visits outside on the balcony or thru the windows to the solarium has been the only option for those wanting to meet the cats and babies prior to the actual purchase.
The following is the typical purchase process and payment distribution:
An initial deposit of 200$ is required to make a
reservation and be on our wait list.
A second deposit of 300$ is required at the time you make your actual selection among the kittens. This takes place AFTER the kittens have seen the vet at least once and received their first innoculations, and usually takes place when they are about 10-12 weeks old.
Note that deposits are NON REFUNDABLE should you cancel your reservation or decide not to purchase the kitten agreed upon (unless, of course, something happens to the kitten whilst in our care).
Your reservation deposit saves your spot on the wait list. When I have available kittens, I go down the list starting from the top. You are free to pass or chose one of the available kittens. You do not lose your spot unless you indicate that you no longer want a kitten or fail to respond to all my efforts to contact you. In such a case, you lose your deposit and your reservation is voided.
The average wait for a kitten is 6 - 12 months normally, but because of the large numbers of reservations since the pandemic, the wait may be considerably longer, possibly up to 2 years depending on where you are on the wait list.You may be lucky and get yours more quickly, or may have to wait a little more depending on your selection criteria or availability in years where we have small litters and a longer waiting list. Generally, we have fewer kittens available in the fall and winter and more babies born in the spring and summer.
The final payment of 1500$ is due at the time the kitten
leaves for their new home.
