Are you looking for a Ragdoll breeder, and a Ragdoll Kitten?
My Ragdoll Cats has set out to provide the ultimate guide to Ragdoll Breeders and finding a Ragdoll Kitten in 2021. As a part of this initiative we will be updating this hub page to include informative articles about choosing a breeder, finding a kiten, things you’ll need for your first year as a new owner and so much more.
We will also have a map of locations so you can find a Ragdoll breeder near you.
Ragdoll Associations, Clubs and Rescues.
We have a done the research for you. All of the main Ragdoll associations, clubs and rescues will be included. From this hub page you will be able to find information about each one, from the main international associations to your local club.
We also believe strongly in rehoming and rescuing pets. On each of the location pages for breeders, you will find local cat rescue information, and if there are any Ragdoll specific rescues we will include that as well.

As per their website. They also have a list of breeders and other information all about the Ragdoll cat.
THE CFA – https://cfa.org/ragdoll/
The Cat fanciers Association is more of a resource for all cat breeds, not just for the Ragdoll Cat. The first two associations are more specifically about the Ragdoll cat. The CFA does however have a page dedicated to the Ragdoll cat which you cat find in the link above.
Older Ragdoll Cats for Adoption
Another great way to become a Ragdoll Cat owner is to adopt an older cat that has either retired out of breeding, or their owner has passed on and the cat has become available. This is actually how I got my current cat Maya. There was an elderly gentleman that was a friend of a friend and he had to enter into an assisted living situation in a seniors home. As that transition was happening none of his kids were able to take the cat. So my friend asked if I wanted to adopt them, and at the time I was actually looking for a new cat. Maya was 12 at the time and Grandma Cat was 22. So I adopted them.
These kinds of arrangements aren’t always easy to find, but they are out there, especially with COVID there are a lot of people that have passed away and pets need new homes.
