Our Story


Behind The Name

The name "River Haze" was created based on two things; our first Ragdoll Sire, and our Firstborn. 'River' is the name we had chosen for our first Sire Ragdoll, and 'Haze' is short for our firstborn daughter Hazel who was 6 months old when we started this venture. 

Behind The Cats ​

We are a team of four; husband + wife (Steve + Kaitlin) with 2 young children. We both grew up in households that adore animals. Kaitlin grew up in Toronto, Canada and owned and operated a ragdoll cattery with her mother from 2013-2018 when she married her husband and moved to USA. In 2020, we welcomed our first daughter and 6 months later established our new cattery.


Behind The Cattery

We have poured our hearts and soul into making this cattery ethical. Each Ragdoll that has joined our breeding program has been selectively chosen, ensuring it meets the standard of the Ragdoll breed. We are forever grateful for the many breeders who have trusted us with their Ragdolls! We're constantly looking for ways to better the lives of our Ragdolls, and recently renovated and transformed our attached garage into their very own kitty oasis. This involved adding a side door for customer pick-ups, new walls, new outlets, fresh coat of wall paint, epoxy paint for floor, and the endless new furnishings to make it purr-ty! Amongst many new things, they've got their own fireplace, a seating area for customers to hang out while picking up their kitten, a mini fridge for any refrigerated medications etc, a storage cabinet for all their supplies, 4 new litter robots, 3 new Mau Pet cat trees, a big cat wheel, wall & ceiling climbers, and 2 Clearly Loved Pet pens for our new litters to inhabit for their first 8 weeks of life.

We do not allow cattery visits unless you're an adopter. We will provide our address prior to pick-up.
