Kitten Application below
*** UPDATED 11/7/19 ***
Our pet quality waiting list is full.
We may have show quality kittens available.
MESSAGE TO FAMILIES ON OUR WAITING LIST:
Show quality will be offered to those on our waiting list first, and then offered to families without a deposit.
We have a couple of litters that we will be evaluating until they are approximately 11 weeks old. I will notify families on our waiting list once I complete evaluations, and will offer kittens in order that deposits were received and by breeder/show/pet quality. We will not do photos until I finish evaluating and I know which kittens will be available.
These kittens will go home approximately mid December and early January.
We accept Zelle, Venmo, PayPal (with 4% fee), and Personal Checks for payment.
Please contact us for our PayPal, Zelle & Venmo Account info.
Chamidolls is a very small TICA and CFA registered in-home hobby breeder located just south of Birmingham, Alabama. We have been breeding for 12+ years, and we also show our cats and kittens in TICA's Southeast Region (AL, MS, TN, SC, NC and FL). Our Ragdoll breeders are negative for HCM, FeLV, FIV. Most kittens will be ready to go home around 12 weeks old as long as kitten is eating well, is good size, no litter accidents, and are vet checked healthy. Smaller kittens will stay with us longer.
Please understand that we are NOT a pet store and we do not have a "cattery" where cats live for visitors. Our Ragdolls live in our home as part of our family. We breed Ragdolls as a hobby and hand-raise our kittens in our home, underfoot.

Please note: Prices are non-negotiable.
Reserving/Purchasing Kittens - We offer kittens by quality and date deposit is received. We offer first as 1) Show-Breeder; 2) Show quality (or show quality in pet home); and then 3) pet quality. We evaluate kittens for quality and personality until they are approximately 11 weeks old, sometimes longer if we are evaluating for show/breeder. Once we are finished evaluating, we will offer the kittens to those on our waiting list first, and then any available kittens will be posted on this website and on our Facebook page.
If you choose to be placed on our waiting list, PLEASE BE PATIENT :) with us as breeding is NOT a QUICK process as we are a small breeder and it takes about 4.5-5 months from breeding FOR ONE QUEEN until kittens are ready to go home at approximately 12 weeks of age. Once the queen is bred, it takes 9 weeks for pregnancy, and then 12 weeks (sometimes longer) until the kitten is able to go home. Also please be patient if you are looking for only a specific color/pattern/gender as it will take longer since we cannot guarantee our queens will have that specific color/gender/pattern. If you are open to ALL colors/patterns, you will receive a kitten sooner. We are very good at responding to all emails in a timely manner, and if you would like an update, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US FOR UPDATES AT ANY TIME.
PLEASE respond to our emails within a day to two when we offer you a kitten so we may offer to the next family if you are not interested. If we do not receive a response within 2 day, we will offer the kitten to the next family on our list. If you are not interested at the time, please let us know right away so we can offer the kitten to another family. If no response, we will assume that you are no longer interested in our kittens and we will take you off of our waiting list unless you contact us. Thank you in advance!! :)

Pet Quality Kittens - Pet quality seal and blue kittens are $895-$995, pet quality red/flame and lynx kittens are $995-$1100, and are priced individually based on color, pattern and how close the kitten meets the Ragdoll standard. Pet quality kittens may be less than perfectly marked or may have another penalizing or disqualifying quality which would prevent them from being shown. Spay/Neuter surgery is an additional fee.
Show Quality - Show quality kittens are priced individually based on color, pattern and how close the kitten meets the TICA Ragdoll standard. Show quality prices are $1200 to $1600 based on quality. Show-breeder quality in a pet home (when show-breeder home not available) may be higher priced. Show alters have perfect or near perfect markings and meet the Ragdoll standard. Show quality kittens will only be sold with show rights, and NO breeding rights. Show alter Ragdoll kittens may be sold to a pet home at show alter price if no show homes are available. Spay/Neuter surgery is an additional fee.
Retired Cats - We require a $200 non-refundable deposit to reserve a retired cat, young adult, or older kitten. Retired cats are individually priced. Occasionally we may have an adult cat that we are retiring from our breeding program that may become available to a furrever pet home. Our Ragdoll cats will be altered before going home, up to date on core vaccinations/rabies and TICA registered.
Kitten Pick-up: We do pick-ups/meetings on Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday depending on our work schedule. We may also meet you up to one hour depending on our schedules. Please be sure to have a pet carrier to keep your kitten safe for the ride home.
Air Transport - You may fly into our airport, Birmingham International, and we will hand deliver your kitten at the airport curbside. We do NOT ship our cats/kittens in cargo.
