About 

our family & process
Here at RumiRagdolls, we are a small TICA registered cattery of a few people and several pets! While we are openly "dog people," we have an immense love for the ragdoll breed for their friendly personalities.

Through responsible showing and breeding, we plan to uphold the integrity of this beautiful breed while placing healthy, happy kittens in loving homes like yours.  Whether you have pets, kids, or plants - these cats fit well into virtually any lifestyle.

Our Process 

Because we love these cats  so deeply, we breed conservatively and expect only a small number of litters  per year.

We share our home with our amazing "staff" who help love and raise the kittens as our resident pets. When your kitty comes home with you, they will be well adjusted to living in a home with visiting children and other pets.

We match our kittens to adoptive families based on your wish-list of desired personality traits and color combinations. After 8-12 weeks of observation and evaluation, we get to know their character pretty well. If you want to join our growing family, please send us a serious inquiry!

Frequently asked questions

Can I leave my ragdoll home if I travel a lot?


Since they crave interactions and attention, ragdolls should not be left alone for long periods of time. If you feel that your lifestyle requires you to travel often, make sure you leave enough food, water, and litter for your cat and consider a second pet so that they can keep each other company when you are away. We don't recommend leaving cats unattended for longer than 24-36 hours at a time.




What will I need for my new kitten?


You can consult our recommended products page to see what products we use and love.




Are ragdolls hypoallergenic?


Ragdoll cats are NOT hypoallergenic. While they lack an undercoat and produce less dander, people with allergies can still have a reaction to their saliva and fur. Allergies or not, you and your cat will feel better if you brush them out once a week to maintain a healthy coat.




Can I let my ragdoll go outside?


We highly discourage allowing your ragdoll cat to spend time outdoors. Ragdolls are very much domesticated cats, rendering them vulnerable outdoors. Due to their curious and friendly nature, they may not pick up on dangers (cars, foxes, dogs, heights). Don't worry, they are very happy perched on the windowsill bird watching with you at home!




is it okay to declaw a ragdoll?


Never. It is never okay to declaw. The good news, however, is that ragdolls are generally not known for playing with their claws drawn. If you provide scratching posts and toys, they generally stay away from furniture and curtains. We have four ragdolls, two dogs, AND a nicely kept home!




What is the difference between seal and blue? What about lynx? What are all these colors and prints!?


Seal ragdolls have darker, brown points. Blue ragdolls have grey points. Lynx pattern cats have blue or seal tabby stripes! Remember that ragdoll coloring develops over time. Regardless of color or pattern, all ragdolls should have blue eyes. Any breeder who advertises mink, sepia, white kittens with 'aqua' eyes is breeding outside of the breed standard for ragdoll cats. learn more about ragdoll colors check out this page or read about ragdolls through CFA or TICA.




Do ragdolls shed a lot?


Ragdolls have rabbit-like fur and shed seasonally. Brushing them weekly should help. Compared to domestic short hair cats, ragdolls generally shed less! ​




Do ragdolls make good pets?


Absolutely! Ragdolls are incredibly social and love attention and companionship. We highly recommend them for families and dog lovers. Their breed name "ragdoll" comes from the natural response for them to flop over when held! The "floppy" cat and "puppy" cat nicknames are a testament to how wonderful they are as pets.
