UK Ragdoll Breeders by Region

Here is a list of reputable Ragdoll breeders spread out across the United Kingdom. Whenever looking for a breeder, a good indication is seeing the GCCF Breeder Scheme Membership logo on their webpage. The logo indicates that this registered breeder has met the specific standards and remained committed to the required Code of Ethics. However, the breeder’s premises are not inspected by members of the GCCF, so it is always wise to physically visit the place where you want to purchase the kitten.

While being part of the GCCF Breeder Scheme increases a breeder’s online visibility, not all GCCF breeders are registered with this scheme. This does not mean they are not excellent breeders and should be considered when looking for a Ragdoll breeder in your area.

How Much Does a Ragdoll Cost?

Depending on where you purchase, a Ragdoll does range in price. People have been able to find these cats for around £500 (approximately $680). However, if you are buying a Ragdoll that is show-level quality, expect to pay between £850–£1450 ($1,160–$1500) for the kitten.

The higher the price of the Ragdoll means that the kitten is registered with the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy and comes from a champion pedigree line. In addition, a more expensive Ragdoll purchased from a breeder will often include microchipping, vaccinations, worm and flea treatment, HCM/PKD proof of testing, and a few weeks of high-quality food.

The lower to mid-range prices most likely indicate that these Ragdolls are not pedigrees. Also, the price for the kittens often does not include any extras such as microchipping and medical testing. If you are not concerned with having a registered pedigree Ragdoll, people often sell Ragdoll crossbreeds for around £200 ($275) that are just as beautiful and calm in temperament.

Things to Ask a Ragdoll Breeder

People looking to purchase a Ragdoll often have several questions to ask the breeder, depending on the Ragdoll itself. If you are looking to buy a show-level pedigree Ragdoll or a household pet, here are some questions you should consider asking the breeder:

  • How long has the breeder been in business? Pedigree breeders, especially Ragdoll breeders, should have a few years of experience. If the breeder is a novice, they might not have the knowledge and understanding needed yet.
  • Ask about the parent’s lineage and health. Experienced and reputable breeders often present detailed information about the mother and father of the kitten. Ask additional questions about the parents as you can, as this helps you understand what to expect from your Ragdoll kitten. Many Ragdoll kittens come from several generations of pedigrees, and it is interesting to understand their lineage.
  • What additions come with the purchase of a Ragdoll kitten? Some breeders get extra things done for the Ragdoll kitten (microchipping, vaccinations, etc.) before they are purchased. However, this can vary from breeder to breeder. See what the breeder will provide within the cost of the kitten.
  • What are the characteristics of the kittens for sale? Any animal lover will tell you that an animal’s character could be different from the siblings or parents. Think about what personality you are looking for in your future Ragdoll pet.
  • What does the breeder love about Ragdolls? While this may seem like a simple question, knowing why the breeders got into this business is reassuring. See how compassionate they are about the animals. That is a good way to tell they genuinely care about these cats. A breeder who is kind and passionate about what they do will reflect in the cats available.

Things to Know Before Buying a Ragdoll

Whenever you decide to purchase a Ragdoll (or any pet), you want to make sure that you feel ready and comfortable having this cat as a pet. Here are some things to know before you get a Ragdoll:

  • Ragdolls are prone to some health problems. When purchasing a Ragdoll from a reputable breeder, you can get background information about the kitten’s lineage and parents’ health. Normally, the Ragdoll is a healthy breed. But you want to get as much information about the kitten’s history you can before purchasing them.
  • Make sure you have the time to give your Ragdoll affection. Ragdoll cats are often thought to be more like dogs instead of cats because they are very loving and often follow their owner from room to room. They can develop depression if they are left alone a lot and not given affection or attention.
  • Ragdolls need weekly grooming. While the hair of a Ragdoll does not mat easily, regular grooming reduces tangles and shedding. Without twice weekly brushing, you might find a lot of fur around your house.
  • Can you handle a larger cat? Although your Ragdoll kitten is tiny now, Ragdolls can weigh between 10-15 pounds when they reach adulthood. Larger cats need larger things! Ensure that your living environment is suitable for larger cats.
  • A Ragdoll is an indoor cat. The Ragdoll is best suited for the indoors. While some cats love to venture outside, the Ragdoll can get into some trouble if left outdoors. They have been bred to be trusting and do not display aggressiveness. These cats are not as aware of dangerous situations that could arise in the outdoors. Sadly, these cats could get stolen as well.

Conclusion

If you want an affectionate cat with a calm demeanor, the Ragdoll cat is an excellent choice. While these felines can be an expensive purchase, reputable breeders ensure that your Ragdoll comes certified by the GCCF, is vaccinated and microchipped, and has been tested for potential diseases. However, if you decide to get a pedigree Ragdoll from a breeder or a crossbreed kitten, always do your research about your Ragdoll’s lineage and medical history. As long as the kitten is healthy and free from in-breeding, this cat will make an excellent new addition to your family.
