Pricing & Process

REVISED 7/28/2020

Prices for kittens 3-6 months are presently determined by each kitten’s quality and rarity therefore some kittens are valued higher.  For further details about individual kittens please ask.

Older kittens 6-12 months are priced individually.  They may be available for various reasons such as being held back for breeding assessment.  Older kittens are not always less money.  Often, older kittens are better quality and very rare colours.

Our adults and retired breeders are evaluated individually for pricing as well.  Often a King or Queen may only have one litter of kittens and be 1 year of age.  They will be valued higher than and adult that is 5 years old.

 

PRICING

PLEASE NOTE our pricing for 2020 has been revised due to significant increases in our supplies and veterinarian services.

We have genetically tested our adult breeding Ragdolls from the foundation up!  Our prices include ‘peace of mind’ in knowing that we guarantee genetically healthy kittens and that we are available to answer any questions during their transition into new homes.  We are also available for any concerns, educating and discussion down the road. We are a RAGDOLL FAMILY!

Pet kittens are INDIVIDUALLY priced. Traditional colours (blue eyes) begin at $1450 and mink, solid and BEW kittens begin at $1650.

ALL of our PET kittens are MANDATORY spay/neuter.  This will be completed BEFORE leaving OR have a FIRM contract to be done by a set date at our discretion. This takes into consideration the physical readiness of each kitten at about 12 weeks of age.

PROCESS

Please fill out our adoption form if you are serious about adopting one of our kittens.  We want to know about the family our kitten is moving in with!  IF you are approved you will be contacted within 48 hours and the kitten selection will begin!

In order to reserve a kitten, a deposit of $250 is collected by e-transfer and applied to the overall cost of each kitten. E-transfers are to be directed to ocanada.ragdolls@yahoo.com and are automatically deposited. In the memo area of all e-transfers please reference the kitten you have chosen and what the transaction is for. Bank transactions will be your receipts. The balance and ‘additional’ will be required for each kitten approximately 1 week prior to the kitten’s home date when surgery is usually scheduled. These arrangements will be determined on an individual timeline.

KITTEN WAIT LIST

Due to the high demand for kittens we have started a short wait list. Once approved for adoption you can be added to our list which requires $50 e-transfer to hold your place. This is non-refundable but will be applied to your deposit when you choose your kitten. Kittens are chosen in order from top to bottom of the list taking into consideration gender and colour preference. IF a matching kitten is declined 3 times you will be removed from the list. The list is for serious inquiries only and you will be our first priority when placing our kittens. We do not hold your place or reserve kittens without a financial transaction that demonstrates commitment.

WE NO LONGER OFFER VISITATION.

In addition to recent COVID-19 precautions our priority is to preserve the continued health of our breeding adults and the optimal wellbeing of the ‘wee ones’ so they are ready to leave by their target dates. We do our very best to supply pictures as an alternative while reserved kittens are growing.  We will also gladly provide ‘milestone’ information and ‘candid’ photos when the occasion arises. Alternatively we have a private Facebook group for our furry family where we will post birth announcements, pictures, videos and useful health information.

REGARDING HOME TIMES

Kittens must leave on their target date.  It is the buyer’s responsibility to be AVAILABLE when it is time for their kitten to transition to their new home.  YOUR KITTEN WILL NOT BE HELD WHILE YOU ARE ON VACATION. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD WHEN RESERVING A KITTEN. We expect that if your new family member is important enough, they will not be boarded and displaced within weeks of going to their new home.  Please consider the stress that this causes, the health issues involved and be wise about the timing of your new family member! Your new baby will be ready at approximately 12 – 16 weeks of age.

SHIPPING & DELIVERY

Shipping by air is discretionary. We will not ship during holidays, summer or winter months if there are temperature embargos. We always prefer and will make accommodation for families that want to take their kitten home in the airplane cabin as a passenger. Hand delivery to an Ontario location may be an option at our discretion however fees will be associated with this service.

CANCELLATION POLICY

A deposit for each kitten is due at the time of reservation.  This initial deposit represents a firm COMMITMENT to reserve a kitten and is immediately applied to individual kitten’s vaccines, deworming and any additional supplementation, if needed.  A DEPOSIT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT REFUNDABLE IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND.

O CANADA Ragdoll kittens are OUR furry family until they are paid in full and therefore we reserve the right to terminate or rearrange an adoption after the deposit(s) has been paid. THIS IS RARE. Should WE choose to cancel our adoption arrangement, then we will return the deposit(s). Please note that sometimes young kittens become unwell, have accidents or we lose the ability to breed their parent(s) and in order to further their lineage we need to hold a kitten back. Thank you for your understanding.
