About Kootenay Ragdolls, we are a cageless cattery called KootenayRagdoll
Anyone who has ever been lucky enough to own a Kootenay ragdoll cat has probably come away singing the breed’s praises. Indeed, a 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 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, Ivy, Dolly and Heaven. King Drisco. Wisdom Panel has Optimal Selection DNA Tests that I can share the results on my website. You will find Health Test Results under each King and Queen.
We are Registered with The International Cat Association (TICA).
