Ragdoll Cats & Kittens in California
Iíve loved cats for as long as I can remember. Content to have a few wonderful felines as pets, the thought of becoming an exhibitor and breeder never crossed my mind until I attended that first cat show in
UPDATE: December 2009
I'm proud to announce that Snugglerags has produced our very first Supreme Grand Champion! You can see a picture of SGC Snugglerags Sebring of RegencyRags on our Home Page. This is really very exciting for us...
Snugglerags is a small hobby cattery dedicated to showing and breeding Ragdolls. At this point, we do far more showing of our cats and kittens than breeding. Generally speaking, we produce roughly three litters per year. This is definitely a family hobby. Our oldest daughter, Courtney, is a veterinary technician who is enrolled in Vet School. She is very helpful with practical tips. Lindsey can be usually be found at the Cat Shows with me--- cats/kittens in tow. She has become our groomer extradordinaire!! Mollie, our youngest daughter, is a sophomore at Stanford and, when home, joins her Dad socializing the babies.
I am a nurse practitioner and my husband, Harry, is a pharmacist. Together, we have extensive health care experience that, to a large extent, transfers to the care of our cats and kittens.
We are dedicated to the preservation of the breed standard and producing healthy kittens by assuring broad genetic diversity. While this means acquiring cats from a variety of champion lines, we know that a wide gene pool will result in healthier cats. Every breeder has a fundamental goal of producing healthy kittens. Beyond this, our primary objective is large size and purr-fect temperament. We believe that, in the end, what people desire is a sweet tempered ragdoll that is the gentle giant it is supposed to be according to the breed standard.
Ragdoll Cats are big, fluffy, affectionate pets. They are wonderful companions, sweet-natured and intelligent. Unlike many other breeds, they stay sweet as adults. Although large in size, these cats do not have aggressive tendencies and, as such, can only be indoor cats. Time outdoors is certainly encouraged and good for their health, however, any time outdoors needs to be strictly supervised to keep them safe from predators.
Reputable ragdoll breeders do not release their babies until approximately 12 weeks (or later). Please check out WHY kittens should not leave their momma until this age. http://www.breedlist.com/faq/young.html
