Hi everyone i am new to this forum.
I just love that they have these here.
I am looking for a ragdoll kitten and was wondering if anyone knew why they fix the kittens at an early age so that you can't breed them.
I have a female himalyan kitten and i would love to get a female ragdoll kitten.
does anyone around no where i can get a female ragdoll kitten.
thanks

Well - I don't live in Canada - so I'm not sure where you can find a breeder - but you can look them up in Cat magazines or even online. Try using google to find a Ragdoll.

As for why they fix their kittens at an early age - is so people will not breed them irresponsibly. Some people will see a pure bred cat and think: MONEY! And breed the cat too early or too often: turning the mother into a kitten machine. Another reason they spay and neauter is so that owners don't breed (on purpose or on accident) their cat and have more unwanted kittens. There are many reasons. You can also just see it as something you don't have to do - one less step and one more vet visit you can aviod.

If you want to breed cats - you can normally talk to the breeder and she might mentor you or at the very least give you a breeder quality kitten to get started.

I'm sure if you search on Google you'll find a cattery in or near your area. If you want to breed Ragdolls, I suggest you start going to the shows and make friends and ask questions. If there is a Ragdoll club, show an interest. If you breed cats, it should be with the intent to preserve and improve the health and conformation of the breed. After you have got to know people, and they know you want to learn. That will make it much easier to find a mentor who will advise you. Good luck!

Also sometimes the breeder decides to spay or neuter because it takes the hassle off of you and puts the risk on him/her. Less worry for me I think.
