Welcome to Snugglepuss Pedigree Cats Ltd. I am a TICA
(The International Cat Association) registered Cattery.
Here at Snugglepuss we endeavor to breed the perfect family cat.
I have bred Ragdoll Cats for eleven years.
Home to 'Tiny'
The Rare Pituitary Dwarf Ragdoll
'Sooty' Achondroplasia Dwarf Ragdoll
Tiny was a rare pituitary dwarf Ragdoll, f.a.b cats have only ever recorded two/three up to date. As far as we know he was the first dwarf Ragdoll and he has a very special place in our hearts. Tiny sadly passed away at the age of eight years old on the 16th of June 2019.
I am 51 years young and in all those years I have only ever been without a cat in my life (home) for six months of it. The three of them were in a cattery awaiting my return from Germany. I missed them so much, a house just is not a home without a cat or two in it!!
To say the least I have many years of experience of cats and their curious varying natures.
I breed traditional Ragdoll cats and non traditional, they are purely an indoor cat.Unless a secure outdoor enclosure is in place.
Their character makes them an ideal family pet as they are great with children and dogs, they are very lazy and they do sleep a lot during the day, they do however have there mad half hours which can be very entertaining as they do like to play fetch (yes sometimes I wonder if I have dogs in cats clothing). They love company and are very much a meet and greet cat when you come home.
My son is diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) he is fourteen years old and has the most amazing relationship with Lotso, he is a male neuter pet that Jack chose to keep as his own. They have a special bond and it is lovely to see this. Sadly we have lost Lotso, we were all saddened by his loss and we have helped our son come to terms with the loss of his very special friend. In all my experience of owning cats, I have only ever seen a bond like this once with my Father who was deaf and I got him just an ordinary cat years ago and Smokey's intelligence of my Father's deafness, was incredible Smokey would let him know if someone was knocking at the door and alert him to any dangers.
Ragdolls are just like any other cat, they are very intelligent contrary to their laid back natures. I find it very rewarding, when I receive feedback from all the lovely people that have been owned by my babies.
My main purpose of breeding these wonderful cats is that they are to be sold as pets only, therefore cat lovers can experience the pleasure of being owned by one. When purchasing one of my babies you will be required to sign a kitten contract, which states that the kitten must be neutered/spayed at six months of age.Mink ragdolls are spayed/neutered before leaving Snugglepuss.
You may have come across HCM/PKD in your research of Ragdoll cats, I have tested my breeding Ragdolls for both of these and I am pleased to say that they are clear for the known faulty gene.
All my cats(stud boys outside) live within our family home.
I am very passionate about my animals and do care about their welfare, so please do not be offended if I ask some questions when you enquire about being owned by one of my cats, this is purely to ensure their future care and welfare.
I have devoted my time to my cats therefore I am available to contact throughout the week and weekend.
My price of a kitten does not include vaccination, as I do not vaccinate, as this is a live vaccine now and can possibly have adverse effects on a Ragdoll, I have witnessed this first hand (before I started breeding). This therefore led to a friendly chat with my new vet at the onset of breeding. (whom I have a great deal of respect for) who recommended that this should be done at 18-20 weeks of age, which is therefore what I recommend, as I would rather take the vets advice for the health of my kittens.
I have not raised these kittens to make them ill or die from being vaccinated at 9-12 weeks. I prefer to wait until it is far safer to do so, when there immune system is better equipped it's only a matter of weeks but makes all the difference to the health of the kitten... Research is ongoing about the effects of the live vaccination in Ragdolls. I would like to make it clear that I do promote vaccination but at a later date and to only have the purvax core vaccination and omit the leukemia vaccine as questions are also being raised on this vaccine at present. Research is also showing that the annual booster, may now be required every three years after the initial booster vaccination.
