FAQs when considering Ragdoll Cats

How much do Ragdoll Cats cost in Indiana?

As a sought-after breed, Ragdoll Cats for sale in Indiana cost between $600 and $1,500. A cat’s price is based on its pedigree, coat quality, age, health and vaccination history. If an Ragdoll Cat’s parents are show-winning, they can be even more expensive.

Like all breeds of cats, Ragdolls may be prone to certain health issues. One of the most common concerns is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a heart condition that can cause thickening of the heart muscle and may lead to heart failure. Ragdolls may also be more prone to urinary tract problems, such as bladder stones or infections. Additionally, their long, thick coat may be prone to matting and skin irritation, which can lead to skin infections.

What should I ask to choose the right Ragdoll Cat breeder?

Asking some relevant questions about their philosophy will ensure you avoid Ragdoll Cat breeders that do this only for financial gain, not having the interests of the cats or you in mind. Make sure you ask about:

  • Health history of the parents and vaccinations. They should have their first vaccinations by the time they're adopted.
  • Whether they've bred their Ragdoll Cats with other breeds (they should disclose this and it would make it not a purebred lien.
  • Have the socialized the kitten among other kittens?
  • Do they belong to a Indiana Ragdoll Cat breed club? You can ask for references from the club.

Why does it matter if I buy from a registered Ragdoll Cat breeder?

When you buy from a registered Ragdoll Cat breeder (with either their local Ragdoll Cat club, governing body, or TICA/CFA), that ensures that a standard of care and expertise is enforced. You can ask them about a wide range of topics such as the Ragdoll Cat’s genealogy, the right kitten for you, common health problems with Ragdoll Cats to look out for. We offer additional registration through our Cat Kingpin Certified program as well, although it's not a replacement for other registrations.

I have had two interests since I was very young… the Internet and cats. I grew up with two lovely cats in my family, Midnight and Chloe. But when I started looking for a cat as an adult, I realized how few reliable resources there are for finding ethical breeders. So I combined my Internet skills and cat knowledge to create Cat Kingpin, the #1 resource for cat breeders online. Have a question or suggestion for my list? You can reach me here.
