Hello dear Ragdoll prospective or early Ragdoll parents,
99% of all interested people often ask themselves the question: “How do I actually recognize a ‘good’ breeder?”
I have some sweet kitten & puppies, so NOT the cute pet baby is crucial, but much more, the home and the people who care for the animal offspring !!!
Here are a few nice tips, which you – at your decision, can be incorporated and observed.
Number of animals (only those who have a manageable number of animals, can also guarantee for the well-being of the animals.The food, medical care and affection, which each individual member of the family needs! A hobby-breeding is very time intensive, therefore my recommendation of the max Number of 4-5 cats 1-2 cats and thus a maximum of 5 litters per year!)
A HOBBY-ZUCHT should be an independent HOBBY and NOT finance the livelihood
sufficient space! The recommendation is about 15 m² per cat / r
Each breeder should have his own hangover (this is the only way the breeder can judge and guarantee the character, the nature and the health of the animal).
The cat should therefore also be available only to their own breeding cats. Every foreigner copulation carries enormous risks. (A breeder takes responsibility, does not offer his cat! The risk of infection, a parasite infestation is far too large and also the genetic lines should be respected). Anyone who constantly and permanently prizes his cat and makes it available, has only the monetary background.
The breeding animals and of course their offspring should have proven to have full (at least 4-5 generations) pedigrees. (You have the opportunity, during the visit, to look at the pedigrees !! Take this opportunity)
A “good” breeder, NOT offering (ads with photos) – his recently born kittens (with eyes closed, for me an absolute NO GO !!!)
The planned litters are only approximate. See HP’s through-the-clock throwing plans well beyond the current year should you hear loud church bells ringing ….
Observe the race-well and comply. THE RAGDOLL SHOULD NOT be allowed to move out in RETARD !! FINGER OFF, if the breeder agrees here !!!
The observation and assessment of a “suitable” breeding kittens, takes a certain time. Suitable kittens are born less often and not in every planned litter.
Our kittens, which are allowed to breed, are tested before donation, on the investigations relevant for us. To take responsibility.
Kittens who move out as “dear-hab-animals” should be subject to a castration order. Out of responsibility for the animal in order not to get into unfair hands!
I hope, my personal advice, can help you with your decisions.
Greetings, yours, Tanja
Dear Ragdoll-Parents, dear Friends and Visitors,
