Ragdoll Kittens Purchase Info
Eden-Lea Ragdoll Kittens Purchase Info
I raise my Ragdoll kittens in a natural way, as holistically as I am able, and with much love and care. As I do things very differently from other breeders, I have a requirement that my new Kitten owners at least be interested in making an effort to keep their new kitten in a natural way.
I prefer not to let my Ragdoll Kittens go to homes where I think they are likely to be vaccinated or fed mostly commercial dry or canned food. For more information, please visit my cat health area. While I realise that people will make their own decisions once they get their new kitten home, I try to place my Ragdoll Kittens where I believe that they will have the best possible chance for long and healthy lives.
PRIOR to any enquiry, please make sure to visit my cat health pages, in particular the cat food and vaccination pages. Enquiries about kittens seem to come all at once, and I give priority to those who let me know that they have looked at and understand the information on food and vaccinations, and are wanting a naturally raised Ragdoll Kitten.
My Ragdoll Kittens are available from around 12 weeks old, depending on each individual kitten’s growth and personality. They are thoroughly Vet checked, de-sexed, registered & pedigreed with the Qld Feline Association (QFA). Kittens are also completely potty trained, flea and worm free, and microchipped.
De-sexing: All Eden-Lea Ragdoll Kittens are de-sexed prior to leaving home, sorry this is not negotiable.
Vaccinations: Eden-Lea Ragdoll kittens are not given the standard chemical cat vaccinations. In lieu, they are given initial Homeopathic Nosodes a natural vaccine using Irene de Villier’s recommended protocol. This gives natural immunity a boost, and does not tear the immune system down and cause health problems in the long term – as chemical cat vaccinations do.
Visiting Ragdoll Kittens: My Ragdoll Kittens are raised inside our home, and for a number of reasons, I no longer have kitten visitors inside our house – for any reason at all. Apart from personal security and public liability issues, I learned very early on that it is unwise to have strangers, their friends, family and children running around in our home, amongst our possessions and endangering our feline family..
Therefore, I am sorry but I do not have visits to young kittens – kittens are only able to be visited after they have been spayed/neutered and are all ready to leave for their new homes. On a visit, the kittens are taken outside where they can be viewed with safety.
- The below points are firm, so if this does not suit you, please do not inquire.
- I do not have casual, “just looking” visits. I only have visits for people who are going to take one of the kittens or cats that I have available, and will be taking them home on the day.
- You need to let me know which one you are interested in upon inquiry. I am usually able to take more photos (and possibly a video) of a kitten to email upon request, to approved enquirers. And long chats on the phone about the kitten/cat are very welcome. I give as much information as you need.
- You are able to spend as long as you want here with the kitten on pick-up day, and having a chat. And of course, if you do not like the kitten when you see him or her in person, then you are absolutely under no obligation at all.
- The kitten is taken out to the front of the house for viewing and there is no access inside our home for any reason.
- I require 24 hours of notice before a visit/pick up to allow for bathing and worming etc.
- Because it is of utmost importance to me that both the kitten and the new owners are happy, I give a two week satisfaction guarantee with all of my kittens. If you are unhappy in any way, you may return the kitten within two weeks for a refund. NOTE 2013 – As I am no longer breeding because of new council regulations about the number of cats on a property – I can no longer offer this return guarantee on my adult cats for sale.
Shipping: I don’t ship kittens.
Boy Kitten or Girl Kitten? As a general rule of thumb, boys do tend on the whole to be more cuddly and affectionate than girls, although they are of course, all individuals, so it varies from cat to cat.
If you already have a female cat, it is safest to choose a male kitten/cat as sometimes a female will object to another female invading her territory, and this may cause ongoing dramas.
