A Word of Caution with Cat Mills

Most people are familiar with puppy mills, but cat/kitten mills are nearly as prevalent. Like puppy mills, kitten mills are places where cats are bred and sold in volume, usually with a disregard for ethics. Both the parents and kittens in these mills are abused and neglected, creating potential behavioral and health problems for future adopters. Kittens from kitten mills often have untreated illnesses, physical deformities, infections, and worms.

The best way to avoid supporting kitten mills is by choosing a reputable breeder for your Ragdoll cat. Kitten mills are about quick turnover without regard for the health and well-being of the cats and kittens. Look for breeders that offer health guarantees, valid pedigrees, and records of veterinary care. Most reputable breeders won’t ship kittens and won’t allow kittens to go to their new owners before 10 weeks of age, but the longer you can wait, the better.

When it comes down to it, follow your gut. A breeder that shows care and compassion for their cats, transparency with their processes, strict guidelines for breeding rights, spaying and neutering, and veterinary care is likely a reputable breeder.
