Ragdoll Kittens: Where Not to Find One

by Rob on October 25, 2014

Never buy a cat from a pet store. The animals found in pet stores often come from puppy and kitten mills only concerned with their profits. The kittens and puppies are often raised in inhumane and unsanitary conditions and are abused. Pet supply stores are an excellent place to purchase toys, scratching posts, and cat food, just not pets.

Another source to avoid or at least be very careful with is the “backyard breeder.” Backyard breeders are individuals that breed Ragdolls with little concern for breeding standards. The kittens from these breeders are rarely registered and may be mixed breed kittens. It is possible to get a healthy kitten from one of these breeders; however, if you are looking for a registered Ragdoll cat, backyard breeders are not the way to go. By purchasing your kitten from a quality breeder you will ensure your Ragdoll cat has the best chance of a healthy, happy life.
