Our RagaMuffin kitten adoption fees begin at $2400.
For our previous adopters: We too have unfortunately been affected by the 2022 overall 7.9% inflation rate in all our significant costs to show, breed, and raise our Muffins. However we've made some changes in how we are doing things around here so fortunately we haven't had to increase our Adoption Fees by the whole 7.9% though - YAY!
Note: Due to rapidly rising costs involved in keeping our show/breeding cats and raising our kittens in optimal health and condition over the past year, and the forecast of continued inflation, we will unfortunately be raising our adoption fees with our next litter. Please plan accordingly.
Adoption fees cover the following:
Transportation is not included in the adoption fees, but we are happy to help make arrangements. Meeting in person is always preferred and we are willing to drive within 10 miles of 45152 to meet with you in person; Unfortunately due to recent increases in fuel prices travel fees for non-local meetups will be applied at a rate of $.65/mile (minus the initial 10 miles included).
We do not ship kittens air cargo but if air travel is necessary, however we work with you for you to fly your kitten in cabin and meet you in person at either Cincinnati or Dayton airports to safely deliver them into your arms directly for a $65 fee to cover our gas and parking costs. We are also more than happy to work with your choice of in-cabin pet flight nanny services that fly with ticketed flights, however we will no longer work with those that fly with Stand By ticketing only.
State Health Certificates, Rabies vaccination certificates, and vet visit needed for those items (if necessary) for airline travel are not included, but at cost. These costs have continually changed in the 2 years so please ask for what they are if these are required.
Our kittens are raised in our home with us as part of our family. They start eating solids with a balanced raw diet and we then later introduce high animal protein content premium rehydrated freeze dried raw as their primary diet with high protein kibble available 24/7 for quick snacks between meals. We believe a solid, strong nutritional foundation is one of the most important factors in a healthy and happy life; so our contract does require our kittens to continue on a wet food (raw, rehydrated freeze dried raw, or high meat content canned) diet as their primary source of food with premium kibble available only for in between meals snacking (not their primary food).
All of our parent cats are DNA tested clear for both Ragdoll and Maine Coon HCM, PKD, blood group and other conditions for a total of over 40 heritable conditions. We provide copies of the parents’ results with every kitten so that should any medical issues arise, your kitten can have the best chance of getting accurate treatment as quickly as possible by simply ruling out these 40 diseases they genetically can not be affected by.
All breeding cats are tested FELV/FIV negative, proBNP negative (heart conditions), and between 2-3 years of age are monitored annually to semi annually with an echocardiogram, with results of all testing provided with your kitten.
*We offer a lifetime warranty against development of any of these 40+ diseases and a 2 year limited warranty for other conditions as outlined in our kitten adoption contract.
We do require first right to take back our kittens or assist in re-homing if a situation arises where they need to find a new home and will always take one of our babies back, no exceptions.
READ ONLY copies of our Deposit and Adoption Contracts are available for preview in links provided on our Adoption Questionnaire, as well as a more thorough outline of what the process looks like when you adopt your RagaMuffin from us.
Please contact us for an Adoption Questionnaire/Application if interested in bringing one of our RagaMuffins into your life.
