Welcome to Kootenay Ragdolls


About Kootenay Ragdolls, we are a cageless cattery – LtSandRagdolls –

Anyone who has ever been lucky enough to own a Kootenay ragdoll cat has probably come away singing the breed’s praises.  Indeed, a mink ragdoll kitten is equal parts fluffiness and sweetness, making them almost a perfect pet.  Even die-hard dog partisans cannot help but be charmed be the mink ragdoll kitten’s affectionate temperament and luminous eyes. Ragdolls are also larger than many other breeds of house cat, and their average weight ranges between 12-22 lbs.

The mink ragdoll is a Registered specific sub-breed of ragdoll cat.  There is a download you can read below the ribbon picture.  This attachment is a good read although there is ongoing debate.


Our History and where we are located   

We are located in Jaffray B.C. With Little Sand Creek running through the middle of our farm. Jaffray is halfway between Cranbrook and Fernie of the East Kootenays. I fell in love with the Ragdoll Breed when we purchased our first Flame point female. Her personality is so different from the barn cats we have. She loves attention, wants to be apart of whatever we are doing in the house. She loves to play fetch with her favorite play mouse. Sassy became my companion in the house. I did a lot of research and decided I would become a breeder to protect, preserve and promote this wonderful breed.   (Kootenay Ragdolls)

My research included health concerns as well.

All our cats are negative for FIV, FeLv, and HCM, as well as PDK1. Since then we have grown our cattery to include: Queens April, Lacy, Zoey, and Nova.  King Drisco.  (Updated August 8th, 2021.)

We are Registered with The International Cat Association (TICA).

Oct 30th,2020聽 Tracy sent this text to me and approved me sharing on my website.聽 Tiby is 17.5 weeks old.

“Tiby had her vet check appointment today, they had nothing but amazing things to say about her and your organized binder. They also checked her ears and saw nothing of concern and we microchipped her too. No way we want to loose this precious kitty. 馃挄 thank you again for trusting and choosing Tiby for us. You did an amazing job!
She’s already 5.6 lbs…she’s going to be so big!”

I love this part, receiving these messages randomly.

We could not be happier with the newest addition to our family! Lori was so responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. She was even able to FaceTime with us so that we could meet the kitten from afar, which we really appreciated. She would keep us updated on his progress and provided a lot of adorable pictures. She ensured that the kittens were looked after both socially and medically (with regular vet checks), which was really important to us. Thank you so much!

Loralie is an amazing breeder. She really cares for her kittens and is wonderful to talk to. We purchased a sweet little girl from her and she鈥檚 absolutely beautiful. Loralie even went the extra mile to deliver our girl to us, which we are extremely grateful for.
We definitely recommend this breeder to anyone who really cares for their animals, because Loralie is a breeder who expresses much love and compassion for her animals.

Loralie MeeuwsenThank you Anna, she looks so happy.

Lori is a kind, caring and knowledgeable breeder who has assisted us through out the process of setting up a home for our new family member.
As a person who only grew up around dogs it has been a wonderful reassurance having Lori help with all the stages of helping raise a well adjusted, well trained and happy healthy kitty.

We got such a sweet baby girl from Lori! I totally recommend anyone looking for a sweet tempered kitten, to contact Kootenay Ragdolls. Lori is a wonderful breeder, and babies her kittens until it鈥檚 time to send them to their new homes. She delivered our kitten right to our home when I wasn鈥檛 able to drive to get her. Getting one of her rag doll kittens was one of the best decisions I have ever made!

Kootenayragdolls.caThank You Elaine, I couldn’t be happier knowing she has a great family. This is the best part of being a Ragdoll breeder, knowing I am preserving, protecting and promoting a beautiful breed.

We can鈥檛 say enough about how wonderful a breeder Lori is! Right from the get-go we could see how kind and caring she was towards her cats and also very knowledgeable about the ragdoll breed. From FaceTimes, to pictures, to updates about vet visits, we had full trust that our kitten was getting the best care and was in a great environment. Lori answered all of our questions and went above and beyond preparing all the necessary paperwork we would need, as well as extra information and tips. We absolutely love our kitten! She is so sweet, curious, and gentle. We could not be happier with the whole experience and would highly recommend!

Kootenayragdolls.caYour recommendation gave me goosebumps聽馃槏聽I am so proud of my Ragdolls.聽馃槏聽thank you Michael

We just got our beautiful ragdoll kitten. Lori was so wonderful to deal with. She sent lots of photos and updates and clearly loves them so much. She really went out of her way to bring our beloved new kitty to us. I couldn’t recommend Kootenay Ragdolls and Lori more.

Kootenayragdolls.caThanks Suzy I love getting pictures of her playing with her family

In Love with our new baby聽馃槏馃槏馃グ馃挄鉂わ笍馃挄鉂わ笍聽I may be a little bit prejudice when I say鈥 Lori is an amazing crazy cat momma鈥, being that she is my sister. But I have seen first hand how she cares for all her furry friends. The time and love she puts into all of them is amazing. Her records for each one are immaculately in order. Anyone who purchases a furbaby from her will not be disappointed.

Kootenayragdolls.caThanks Sis, I know he has a wonderful home and I get to see him anytime.
