Adoption Fee

Our adoption fee not only reflects the kitten's quality type, but also reflects the quality of care we provide in our cattery. As an adopter, you get to walk right into the heart of our cattery at pick-up time! We want you to see with your own eyes what type of care we are providing. As years go by, breeding becomes more and more expensive due to inflation. We're getting better at what we do with each year that passes, learning more ways to provide even better care for our cats and kittens. With better care, becomes MUCH higher overhead costs. Food alone costs us close to $1000 a month simply because we choose to feed everyone one of the most wholesome brands. Next you get the Genetic testing, PCR testing, vet expenses, and other consumables like cat trees, toys, grooming tools, litter and litter robots - as I'm sure you can imagine, these are constantly being replaced with the heavy usage they get. I'm sure you get the idea! Breeding is not cheap, we don't take shortcuts, and we certainly are not ripping anyone off! I believe breeders who do it right should be charging far more than they already are for the amount of labor and hard work that goes into it - something adopters don't see. You should question a 'good deal' because I can guarantee that the kitten is not being cared for properly with the amount of cost that goes into proper care.
 

Please Note: As a Limited Liability Company in New Jersey, we are required by Law to charge New Jersey Sales Tax of 6.625% per sale.

What's Included

Our kittens come from a remarkable pairing of the beautiful ragdolls we've chosen to be part of our program. Alongside the high quality type, our kittens also come with:

 

 

Vet Check

Our Kittens are seen by our vet prior to leaving our care, and are given a health certificate signed by our Vet stating that our kittens are fit for rehoming.

Vaccinations

Our Kittens have received their age appropriate vaccinations which include the Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici-Panleukopenia vaccine, and the rabies vaccine.

Deworming

We give our kittens 2 sets of 3 doses of fenbendazole: one set at 6 weeks old, and one set at 12 weeks old.

Spay/Neuter

Our kittens are spayed/neutered prior to leaving our care. Surgery requirements for felines are to be at least 3 pounds, which is typically anywhere between 10 and 12 weeks of age with our kittens. Because of this, kittens will leave our care anywhere between 12 and 14 weeks old after they've healed from their surgery.

Microchip

We have our kittens microchipped while they go under for their surgery to minimize any unnecessary pain, and to provide protection so he/she always finds a way back home if ever lost!

Revolution Flea Treatment

We provide a flea treatment prior to being spayed/neutered to protect our kittens in the event they are exposed while being outside of our care (ie vet clinic).

Health Guarantee

We provide a two year genetic guarantee against the following: HCM, PKD, and MPS VI. We also provide a 72 hour limited health guarantee against FIV, FeLV and any other life-threatening diseases that are pre-existing. This does not include any upper respiratory/eye infections, or the common cold as this can be stress-induced from traveling.

Grooming

Claws are freshly clipped and fur is freshly bathed in a deliciously scented shampoo that is carried in our shop (soon to be launched) if interested in purchasing for yourself.

TICA Paperwork

We provide all kittens with their TICA paperwork.

Trupanion Pet Insurance

We provide 30 days of free pet insurance for every kitten going to their new home. Insurance must be activated within 24 hours of picking up their kitten otherwise is no longer valid. Please note we do not get anything from this offer. This is completely free and nothing is received on our end for having you sign up and activate your free month of insurance. You can also cancel any time, no obligations.

The Best Socializing

Nobody can socialize a kitten the way a kid can. And we got two of them! We truly believe kids are the key to every kitten's heart. When kittens are raised from day one around children, you can bet that kitten is going to be a very happy and easy-going kitten. Not only do we have two kids, we have (a lot) of nephews and nieces who come by often to say hello.

The Ultimate Ragdoll Experience!

Making jaws drop is what we strive for! We dedicated our entire garage to a Ragdoll haven and renovated it into the Kitty Paradise it is today. We have made it a place customers get to come to when picking up their kitten, and check out all our cats and kittens while they're at it. You get to see the heart of our cattery where our Ragdolls are loved and raised. The reaction we get every time an adopter comes is exactly that, their jaws drop - every time!

Lifetime Support

We look at our relationship with our adopters as a potential 20 year timeline, and commit ourselves to be there as best we can to answer any pressing questions you may have along the way. We do ask our adopters to be mindful of the questions asked post-adoption, and to try and limit it to the pressing issues you may have so that we can be as equally available to all adopters who need help. We recommend getting your less pressing questions in prior to adoption when we're in the adoption phase and answering many of those questions already.
