Average Price of a Ragdoll
It’s always hard to give a price estimate as the price of exotic and pedigree cats can vary so much. Generally speaking, however, you can expect to pay somewhere in the region of $800-$1,800 for a Ragdoll kitten.
It really depends on the breeding lines and the pedigree of the kitten. I’ve seen Ragdolls being sold for as high as $12,000, so it’s not out of the question to see some pretty lofty prices.
Are Ragdoll Cats High Maintenance?
Ragdolls get a bad rap for being high-maintenance when they’re really not. I think this is due to the fact that they’re often seen as show cats, and they’re big cats.
If you want to show your Ragdoll, then yes, it’s going to be high-maintenance getting them into show condition.
For a household pet, however, Ragdolls are low-maintenance. You do need to brush them regularly, as you do with most cats.
This is the extent of the hands-on maintenance though. In fact, Ragdolls are known for being very laid back and not demanding a lot of attention.
They’re ideal for quieter homes for that reason. They don’t like a lot of noise and foot traffic and are happiest curled up on a lap on their favorite spot to sleep.
TICA And CFA Certifications
If you want some added reassurance that the breeder you’re dealing with is a reputable breeder with pedigree cats, then you could look for TICA and CFA certifications.
The International Cat Association (TICA) is the largest genetic registry of pedigreed cats in the world. If a breeder has a TICA certificate for their cats, you know they’ve been registered.
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) is a not-for-profit organization that holds shows and judges cats using CFA Breed Standards. There have been more than 2 million cats registered with the CFA over the years.
If a breeder is registered with either of these organizations, it shows they are committed to maintaining a high standard of welfare and understands the breed.
Colors and Coat Patterns of Ragdolls
Ragdolls come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Traditionally speaking, however, there are six different colors.
There are also four different coat patterns as follows:
- Bicolor – This means the cat will have white legs, an inverted ‘V’ on its face, and usually white patches on its body.
- Colorpoint – This is the ‘classic’ Siamese coloring. Darkening at the extremities; like the ears, tail, paws, and nose.
- Mitted – Similar to a colorpoint, but Mitted cats have white paws and abdomen. They must have a stripe running down their body, too.
- Blue Point – This is the term for a blue-colored Ragdoll with grey on its points. So, a grey face, tail, paws, and ears.
The interesting thing about Ragdolls is that they’re a ‘pointed’ breed. Pointed cat breeds, such as Siamese, Birman, and Napoleons to name a few, develop color at their extremities as they age.
If you see a newborn Ragdoll, you’ll see it’s born white. They then start to develop color at around 8-10 weeks, and will have their full color by the age of 3-4 years.
Do Ragdolls Make Good Pets?
Ragdolls are excellent pets. I’m not biased, honest, and obviously, they are not perfectly suited to everyone.
If you’re after a large, cuddly, docile, cat, however – then Ragdolls might just be the perfect cat for you.
They are affectionate to people, and typically get on well with other animals. Despite being large, they are better off indoors than outdoors. They’re not the most active and agile of cats, and they don’t chase prey like some other breeds.
They do need a loving owner that’s going to give them plenty of attention. This is totally understandable and something we all sign up for as cat owners, right?
So, what are you waiting for? You should have been convinced by now, if you were not already, that a Ragdoll would make a perfect addition to your household.
I hope you found a great breeder in your area. If not, you could always look into shelters and rescues to see if there is a Ragdoll in need of a home. Good luck!
