Q:

How much do ragdoll cats cost?

A:

Quick Answer

Ragdoll cats can cost as little as $450 for pet-quality cats or over $1,200 for show-quality cats. This price covers vaccinations, feeding costs and registration. For show-quality cats, the additional expense reflects travel and show expenses that demonstrate the quality of the cat's pedigree.

Full Answer

Pet-quality ragdoll kittens have minor cosmetic defects that mean they cannot be put into shows, but they are raised with the same care and attention as show-quality cats. Pet shops and farms give away kittens at eight weeks, but breeders do not sell kittens until they are 12 weeks old. This gives the kittens time to properly socialize with their mothers and littermates and prevents them from treating human owners like littermates.
