If you’re here, you’re looking for Ragdoll cat breeders in Louisiana or places where you can find Ragdolls near you.
I’ve done some research and put together a list of breeders in the state of Louisiana that are currently breeding Ragdolls (at the time of publishing this).
I have also included some additional resources to help, in case you can’t find what you’re looking for from the list below or a breeder locally.
Good luck, and happy kitten hunting!

TICA and CFA Certifications
While not a complete deal-breaker, it’s nice to see breeders with professional certifications – it’s like a stamp of approval that you’re dealing with a responsible and ethical breeder.
Two of the certifications and organizations that you should keep an eye out for are:
The International Cat Association (TICA) – TICA was founded in 1967 and is the world’s largest and oldest association for cat enthusiasts and breeders. It has over fifty years of experience in registering purebred cats from all over the world.
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) – Founded in 1906, the CFA is the largest purebred cat registry in North America. They’re devoted to the advancement of purebred cats and provide some excellent resources.
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 $500-$3,000 for a Ragdoll kitten depending on the pedigree.
If you’re getting into this for a show-quality cat, this price can easily be several thousand more!
Here is a rough price guide:
|Type of Ragdoll||Approximate Price|
I thought I’d share some additional resources that I think will come in handy for some new or prospective Ragdoll parents:
AdoptaPet.com – AdoptaPet is an online resource that helps connect you with hundreds, maybe even thousands of rescues, shelters, and other places where there are cats in need of homes.
I’m not going to put any pressure on, but there is something rewarding about taking in an adult cat in need of a home.
Ragdolls on Reddit – There is a huge community (25k+ at the time of publishing) over on Reddit.
It’s a good place to make some friends, share cute pictures, and ask any specific questions you have.
Are Ragdoll Cats High Maintenance?
That depends on who you ask!
In my opinion, they’re not high-maintenance at all. Ragdolls do require more grooming than, say, an average short-haired cat would need though.
But as long as you’re willing to spend a few minutes brushing your Ragdoll a couple of times a week, this shouldn’t be seen as a chore.
Ragdolls also enjoy the company and interacting with humans – when it suits them of course. But again, if you’re looking for a 100% self-sufficient pet, maybe a cat isn’t for you…
As a general rule, the busier your household the better. Ragdolls enjoy playing with other cats, they’re great with kids and will give you plenty of affection.
Do Ragdolls Make Good Pets?
If you ask anyone with a Ragdoll, I’m sure they’re going to tell you that they are perfect pets!
They are certainly adorable and fluffy, but are they right for you?
Some of the things you should consider before taking on a ragdoll cat as an addition to your house family is whether or not you have kids and other pets.
Generally speaking, they make great pets for families with kids as they love attention – and they are known for being very docile and tolerant.
They can be very playful and boisterous, but they can also be a bit clumsy at times.
Some young kids may be a little intimidated by them or find them too rough to play with because of their size. But they really are big softies.
Another thing you need to think about is whether or not your ragdoll will get along with the other cats and pets in your house.
As long as you introduce them to your other pets correctly it should be something you can easily manage.
I’ve never heard of a Ragdoll being aggressive or causing any problems. They can be a little too playful for older cats, but it shouldn’t be an issue if you have plenty of toys for them, a cat tree, etc.
