Ragdolls are known for their extremely cuddly and friendly nature. Therefore, it isn’t much of a surprise that these felines are extremely popular among families looking for companion animals.
They have also stolen the hearts of many breeders. There are a couple of breeders throughout Louisiana that specialize in these floppy kittens. We listed the most active ones here.
2 Ragdoll Breeders in Louisiana
1. Nola Ragdolls Vieux Carre’ Cattery
- Madisonville, Louisiana
The Vieux Carre’ cattery is a small cattery based in-home and registered with the TICA. They ensure that their kittens are raised underfoot and heavily socialized, helping them grow into confident and lovable pets.
All their cats are DNA tested for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and polycystic kidney disease. Like most catteries, they have a waiting list that you can register with to ensure that you snag a kitten when one becomes available.
2. Cats by Francy
- Lafayette, Louisiana
This cattery specializes in Persians, Himalayans, and Ragdolls. They have been breeding cats since 1978, but they only recently began breeding Ragdolls in 2010. These aren’t the primary cats that they breed, but they do have litters regularly.
Their kittens receive plenty of medical work before going to their new homes. For instance, they get all the necessary vaccinations, workings, and flea prevention. They are also socialized and trained. Breeding cats are DNA tested to ensure that they aren’t carrying any underlying diseases.
