Ragdoll Cats & Kittens for Sale

The large fluffy Ragdoll cat is one of the most aesthetically beautiful breeds around today. Along with their luxurious looks, their placid temperament and affectionate nature make them a popular feline companion for families in the UK and beyond.

The most famous trait of the Ragdoll is their ability to go limp or floppy upon picking them up. They are one of the biggest “lap cats” and love to cuddle, snuggle and curl up next to their owners. Therefore, they remain a popular cat breed for cat lovers looking for an affectionate, cuddly companion.

Meet the Ragdoll

Ragdolls grow to be large cats, with the males reaching up to 20 pounds and females reaching 15 pounds. However, Ragdolls grow slowly, and it takes them roughly four years to get to their final size.

Along with being hefty, they have a sturdy, muscular body frame with a broad chest and short neck. Their coats are silky, dense and semi-long with extra bushy tails, giving them an even fluffier appearance.

Most Ragdolls will be a creamy white colour with a colour point pattern where their fur is darker at the extremities (nose, ears, tail, and paws). However, although uncommon, they can come in other colours; red, seal, chocolate, blue, and lilac. They can also possess different patterns, but again, these are less common.

Ragdoll kittens are usually born white, with their colouring and patterning developing around 8–10 weeks. Then, their colour may continue to change until they reach full maturity between 3 and 4 years old.

Another gorgeous physical characteristic that Ragdolls have is their vibrant blue eyes. They are also large and round, making them stand out against their light fur. They have medium-sized ears with rounded tips and a slight forward tilt.

The temperament of a Ragdoll

The Ragdoll’s floppiness is thought to be down to an instinctive reaction that reminds them of their mother picking them up as a kitten. However, some people believe it is due to a genetic mutation. Most cat breeds will go limp when you “scruff” them by the neck, but Ragdolls are bred to go floppy when picked up and held in any way.

The Ragdolls gentle nature is a trait passed down from the similar Persian and Birman breeds. However, Ragdolls are much more submissive than these breeds, which can be both a good and bad thing. It means your Ragdoll will never harm a small child or start fights with other cats, but it also means they cannot defend themself if they get into trouble.

Though Ragdolls will act docile when held, this doesn’t mean they are inactive cats. They love playtime and will happily play with their toys alone and engage in family play. However, they will not jump and climb all over your house like more energetic breeds, and their play sessions are usually short.

Ragdolls are also extremely loyal and devoted to their owners, which is why they are known as one of the dog-like cat breeds. This does mean they can be quite clingy, though, so they need to be with a human who can give them regular attention.

10 Reasons to add a Sphynx to your family

  1. Surprisingly, they don’t shed much - Although Ragdolls have a long, plush coat, they lack an undercoat which significantly reduces their shedding and matting rate.
  2. They have excellent manners - Ragdolls are incredibly well-mannered, will listen to you, and rarely create problems, so they are a breeze to live with.
  3. They are soft and cuddly - These teddy-like cats are not only big and soft. They adore cuddles and will never wriggly out of your arms, unlike some of the more aloof breeds.
  4. You will never feel lonely - If you live alone, a Ragdoll will be the best company as they will stay by your side, follow you around, and comfort you when you’re feeling down.
  5. They will greet you at the door - Like a puppy, they listen out for your car and will be eagerly waiting by the door as you turn the key.
  6. They won’t harm a fly - Okay, maybe they would hurt a fly, but they would certainly not lash out at any human or other pet.
  7. You can teach them tricks - Ragdolls are intelligent cats that can quickly learn tricks, develop recall, and even play fetch. Plus, they understand how to walk on a leash, so you can let them safely explore the outside world.
  8. They love water - Ragdolls are one of the few breeds that like to play in water. Running taps make them curious, so don’t be surprised if they dive in the sink as you’re doing the dishes.
  9. They are quiet - Ragdolls are not a very vocal breed, so they will not meow at you every time you move or get up. This makes them an ideal choice for someone who lives in an apartment.
  10. They don’t need much grooming - Despite having long hair, their coat tends to stay in excellent condition with two short combing or brushing sessions a week.

Best homes for a Ragdoll

Ragdolls do best in homes where they will receive lots of attention and cuddles. They will quickly get lonely if neglected, which can be harmful to their well-being.

It’s also vital that you keep your Ragdoll as an indoor-only cat and do not let them roam. As Ragdolls have been bred for their gentle nature and floppy trait, they do not retaliate if they get into a fight with another cat. This can make life outside very dangerous for them, so it’s best to keep them indoors.

Being so easy-going, Ragdolls look to make friends with other cats and dogs. However, they will do much better with another cat of a similar gentle nature, rather than a more aggressive feline who could dominate or even hurt them. Finally, they are gentle with children and super playful. So, a Ragdoll could be an ideal companion for a young, active child.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ragdoll Kittens

Why should I choose a Ragdoll kitten from The Pedigree Paws rather than elsewhere?
Kitten mills are now illegal in Great Britain, but some unlicensed breeders are still breeding animals in an unethical way. However, at The Pedigree Paws, we work with the best licensed Ragdoll breeders from the UK and Europe. Our mission is to fight pet farms, so we support only moral breeders who treat each kitten as their own, ensuring they are as healthy as possible. Therefore, choosing a kitten with us ensures that you will get a healthy, well cared for and socialised Ragdoll kitten.
Is a Ragdoll the right kitten for me?
If you're looking for a cuddly, gentle fluffball that will entertain you with its playful nature and snuggle with you often, you'll love a Ragdoll. Ragdolls bond deeply with their owners, and some may develop a favourite human, so if you're living alone and looking for a companion, a Ragdoll is perfect. Ragdolls are ideal for those who want a quiet, relaxed kitty rather than a loud, energetic cat. However, they should be kept indoors due to safety concerns, and they need regular social interaction with their owner. So, before deciding to bring a Ragdoll into your home, be sure that you or another household member will be around often.
Is The Pedigree Paws trustworthy?
We know that it's not easy to find reputable and ethical pet breeders or agencies. However, as a fully transparent company, our number one priority is to build complete certitude with our customers. That's why we're incredibly proud to have hundreds of previous happy customers. Feel free to check out our testimonials to see our success stories for yourself. We ensure all our Ragdoll kitten breeders are fully licensed and act ethically. So, choosing The Pedigree Paws to assist you in getting a Ragdoll kitten is much more trustworthy than looking for a breeder privately.
Are Ragdoll kittens from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
We only work with breeders who follow strict health protocols to ensure all our Ragdoll kittens are 100% healthy. This means that every Ragdoll kitten you see on our website has had a thorough health check with a licensed vet. Moreover, we also run DNA checks on both parents of the kitten. This ensures your new baby Ragdoll does not have any genetic mutations and is 100% purebred. In addition, your Ragdoll kitten will be dewormed, microchipped, and have all their vaccinations complete before coming to you.
When can I receive my new Ragdoll?
Ragdoll kittens, like all breeds, should not be taken away from their mother until they are fully weaned and are psychologically ready. This should never be any earlier than 8 weeks old, but preferably later. So, although we know that you’re keen to play with your new fluff ball, we prefer to keep them with their mother and siblings until they are 10-13 weeks old.
Can I see the parents of a Ragdoll kitten before purchase?
Yes, it's important to see the parents of any kitten before making a purchase. Doing so will allow you to see if the parents are in good health which will help to assure you that your baby Ragdoll will be healthy too. No matter how far away your breeder is, you’ll be able to virtually meet your Ragdoll kitten’s parents by a prearranged video call.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of my Ragdoll kitten?
Yes, all our Ragdoll kittens come with internationally recognised pedigree documents from top organisations, including GCCF, TICA and FIFe, to name a few. You can not choose the organisation though, as it depends on the location of the breeder. If you’re purchasing from Great Britain, your Ragdoll kitten will likely be registered under GCCF.
Do these Ragdoll kittens from The Pedigree Paws come from good breeders?
Before we accept any breeder onto our books we make sure that they follow the animal welfare policies of the top international pedigree and breeding organisations. However, we don’t stop there as we have also developed an extensive selection process to choose the most ethical breeders in the country. For example, we can say with confidence that all breeders on our site treat their animals like family members rather than a product to sell, which can make a huge difference to their wellbeing.
Are your Ragdoll kittens raised in a family home or a breeding facility?
There is only one ethical way to breed kittens and that is to raise them in a family environment with their mother until they are at least 10-13 weeks old. Because of this, we do not support commercial breeding facilities as they do not raise animals in this way. The main priority of these facilities is to make money, and this is apparent in the way they treat kittens, keeping them in cages without their mum. When kittens are raised in a family home, they are well taken care of and interact with humans regularly, a vital part of their socialisation process. Thus, they will receive a happy, affectionate kitty that will adapt well to their new home.
How can I help my Ragdoll kitten settle into their new home?
As kittens, Ragdolls typically adapt well to change. In most cases, your new Ragdoll kitten will settle quickly, providing they receive plenty of affection. However, there are a few ways you can help to make the change as stress-free as possible. First, request that the breeder send your kitten with a towel or blanket containing their mother's pheromones. This scent is very calming for kittens and will help keep them relaxed during the journey. Then when they arrive, consider keeping them in one room for a day to adjust, especially if you have other animals or young children.
