Welcome to ChamiDolls Ragdoll Kittens! We are a very small in-home hobby Ragdoll Show-Breeder located a few minutes south of Birmingham, Alabama. We have been breeding Ragdoll kittens for over 8.5 years, and actively show in TICA's SE Region. We are also very proud that our daughter is a TICA Clerk Trainee and a Junior Exhibitor. We are members of TICA and RFCI (Ragdoll Fanciers Club International) and our cattery is also registered with TICA (The International Cat Association) and CFA (Cat Fancier's Association). As we have a very small in-home cattery, we only have a few litters per year. All of our Ragdolls are raised in our home, underfoot in a family environment as to provide the love, attention and socialization that is needed for our kittens to become well-adjusted adults. We are one of the few Ragdoll breeders located in Alabama that shows cats and kittens in TICA or any reputable cat association to be sure we are breeding the correct type and temperament as to provide the very best pets and show-alters to our families. We believe it is so important that all cat breeders show in a registery as this is the only way that you continue to breed the correct type and temperament according to any cat Standard. It is also a super fun hobby for families and very rewarding!
BOY or GIRL? Is there a difference? We get asked this question a lot. Several families are looking for females because they think male cats will spray even after they are neutered. Most spayed/neutered pets do NOT spray. What people do not realize is that males AND females BOTH spray. Some lines do spray more than others, and we have only had TWO male cast and TWO females that have sprayed in 9 years of breeding. Males do weigh more and have larger features than females. We do find, in most cases, that males are more "on your lap" loving and affectionate, and females are more "next to you" loving, but again there are exceptions to this as well as we have had several females that love to snuggle on our lap.
Our Ragdoll cats produce a variety of colors and patterns. We offer blue and seal mitted, bicolor, colorpoint, lynx ragdoll, torbie (lynx tortie) and torties (seal or blue with splashes of red). Our very favorite Ragdoll patterns are lynx and tortie, and we are very excited to be keeping a stunning blue mitted lynx boy to show and breed from our Nutmeg x Chewy breeding. The lynx ragdoll is absolutely stunning and their exotic striped markings are similiar to a cat in the wild. We will also have gorgeous red/flame male and female kittens at the end of 2016.
Breed Info: The Ragdoll is a semi-longhaired, POINTED cat, and ONLY has BLUE captivating eyes. Their personality is probably the most famous feature, and is known as a true gentle giant. They are affectionate, easy to handle, relaxed in temperament, very intelligent, and generally not overly active or very talkative, with the exception of when they are young, but there also may be exceptions to this as each cat does grow to have their own personality. This sweet, loving breed is also very intelligent, and similar to a dog in some ways as they are completely devoted and loyal to their owners and can be easily trained to roll, beg, retrieve toys, and may also be taught to walk on a leash and harness. This adoring breed is a true companion and loves to always be at your side. The Ragdoll is known for their docile, sweet, laid back disposition, and most have the tendency to relax in a person's arms like a child's rag doll. Most Ragdoll cats are so people-oriented, and absolutely love to be with their families and get strongly attached. They love to snuggle either on your lap, next to you, or at your feet. Our cats and kittens are always following us from room to room, and the kitten train is the absolute cutest. Since the Ragdoll is strictly an indoor pet, they must be provided with lots of trees, condos, toys, and scratching posts. They are also very social and need constant companionship unlike some other breeds, which may be aloof and more independent. The Ragdoll cat is more on the calmer side when older, but they still do love to play, and they also adjust very well to most situations and get along wonderful with most dog breeds, other pets and children. Since they thrive on companionship, we do suggest having two Ragdoll kittens or another pet to keep each other company as they are happiest if constant companionship is provided.
The Ragdoll cat is NOT hypo-allergenic and they DO shed as do all animals with hair. We find that if you brush the coat on a regular basis, they will shed less often. The Ragdoll has blue eyes and is a "pointed" breed, meaning their extremities are darker than their body and the coat is very silky and soft. This breed of cat does lose the fluffy coat just like other cats during the heat of summer and when breeding, but it will grow back in the fall/winter or when the cat is no longer a breeder and his/her hormones level out. Newborn kittens are white at birth, and will slowly develop their color as they grow, reaching full color at approximately 3 years of age. Ragdolls are slow to mature, and will reach full size at approximately 4 years of age. An altered male will grow to approximately 15-20 lbs., sometimes larger, and spayed females will grow to about 10 to 15 lbs. Traditional Ragdoll colors are seal (a deep brown), chocolate (lighter warm brown), blue (greyish blue), lilac (lighter greyish blue with a pink tinge). Patterns include colorpoint, mitted and bicolor. Other beautiful colors and patterns are red-flame, cream, tortie, torbie and lynx. To see Ragdoll color and pattern examples, please see our Color/Patterns page, and visit our Ragdoll Photos page to see some of our beautiful kittens who have found their furrever families!
If you are looking for a super sweet, loving, snuggly, floppy, large, gorgeous family pet that is wonderful with children, a Ragdoll may be the perfect pet for you and your family!
