    I have a Ragdoll.

    I paid 375 for her which was GCCF registered NON ACTIVE meaning that she had to be neutered before 12 months.

    This included her being vaccinated and micro-chipped and she came complete with lots of little goodies so overall I was pleased with this.

    It really does depend on what area you are in and if the breeder is a reputable breeder or not.

    Some backyard breeders will sell them cheaper but they will normally not be vaccianted and the parents are generally un-registered cat that have no health tests and are not suitable for breeding.

    Like a previous poster mentioned it also depends on what you want the kitten for as show and breed prices are higher.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi

    For Ragdoll kits - the TBRCC recommends the following "guide" prices

    Pet £375
    Show Neuter £375 - £400
    Breeding Queen £550 - £800
    Show/ Breeding Queen £650 - £800
    Show/Stud Potential £650 - £800

    These will vary a little from region to region but will give you a good idea of the costs from a registered breeder. If you are paying a lot less than this then you need to ask why!

    If you decide on a Raggie kitten you can visit www.tbrcc.co.uk and go to the Kittens Availability page - that will give you a list of kittens available and where they are with contact details.

    I have 9 GCCF registered persians, ranging in age from 2 to 15. Some that I've had have been ex-breeding girls and I've had several rescue persians too. My youngest was £300 two years ago, she was about 14 weeks old when she came to me and was fully vaccinated, not breed or show quality, but still beautiful in my eyes! :)

    Don't a lot of persians and ragdolls need adopting all the time because people don't seem to realize they need brushing and stuff and find them hard work so get rid of them?

    Something I would suggest is if you look at one see them getting brushed, some are really bad with it and if it's your first its easier to get one that is used to it or likes it. My mums persian, Misty runs a mile if she sees the brush. She will only let me do it and only if she is sleepy and had lots of cuddles, I have to be really gentle though or she will attack me. Luckily she is very good at keeping herself unknotted. Amazing really, she always looks like shes been brushed really well except under her chin, she sometimes gets little knots there.

    You are correct I do have 2 Birman's along with an 8 year old female Ragdoll and a 10 year old female moggie.

    I like a bit of everything lol.

    The older two are technically my ex husbands cats but when he left they stayed and so here we all are!

    Ah I see, I did it the other way around I had a lovely female Birman first then the ragdolls came along! :D She wasn't very well socialised but she was very lovely, I only phoned the breeder looking for a moggy and the lady explained I could pay her up for a Birman and ............yes the rest is history. She is no longer with us now though.

    They are very similar breeds so I think if you love one then you love them both !
