Faith & Ragdolls are our Passions
Regrettably, our cattery plans are on hold indefinitely without the chance for any more kittens. We will respond to your inquiries when we reopen. Thank you for visiting NinaDeDrap and best wishes with your Ragdoll search. God Bless :-)
Reservations for a specific kitten usually begin at 8 weeks with a $250.00 deposit deducted from the total cost (by check or PayPal). The remaining balance is due when the kitten is picked up.
Kittens become available after 12 weeks of age. They will have been dewormed, have received two rounds of FVRCP vaccinations, two veterinary examinations, and been spayed or neutered.
Kitten prices vary: The price of our Ragdolls ranges based on their features. When available, photographs are tagged with each kitten's price.
We send kittens home with many blessings and a GIFT basket that includes a few days' supply of food, a selection of their favorite toys, TICA pedigree paperwork, litter and litter box, care instructions with tips for a smooth adjustment to their new home & more.
For everybody's safety please remember to bring a carrier to transport your new Ragdoll home. If you don't have a pet travel case, let us know and we will have one ready for you. Thank You.
THE GEMSTONES LITTER
Carla and her family are absolutely wonderful! They are so passionate about the ragdoll breed. Their cats and kittens are so well loved. It really shows by how well they socialize with their siblings and people. Carla was amazing to speak with. She responded to my inquiry immediately and was always available to answer questions. Carla and her family could provide so much information about every kitten’s personality. It was amazing to also meet the kitten’s parents. Our family is so pleased with our kitten “Marble.” He is so handsome, social and cuddly. Our kitten has made such a wonderful addition to our family. We are so happy. If we were to add another kitten to our family I would contact Carla! I highly recommend Carla at NinaDeDrap! - C.B.
IMPRESSIVE PROFESSIONAL SERVICE
Thank you so much for your professionalism and your kindness to us on our first day. My husband and I were very impressed after we left with our little Zoey and are grateful for your generosity. We will send you pics here and there. Thank you again. L & K.
We've have adopted several purebred cats in the past and decided it was time to get an addition to our family. We always wanted a ragdoll kitten and so I started looking but there were so many catteries, how would I decide? As I looked, I was immediately drawn to Nina DeDrap Ragdoll Cattery. Why? I could see from their website and the details of their pictures were far beyond any other cattery. Each kitten had multiple pictures and described with their personalities making it easy to choose the perfect kitten for us. Carla has been nothing but exceptional in answering all our questions and concerns.
From the moment we walked into their home, we knew that this was not just a business but a home that was based on providing the very best love and care. On our way home, we knew we had chosen the perfect kitten, Fudge, for us! His personality is exactly as described and more. Carla treats us as an extension of her family and continues to provide us helpful information to ensure a smooth transition. It’s comforting to know that no matter what, Carla will always be there for us and Fudge. We can’t say enough about what a great experience we've had. - D. & C. M.
My family worked with Mitch and Carla and now have our first Ragdoll. Everything from my first email to Carla to picking up the kitten was easy and Carla is very friendly. Our boy is the cutest and he has a great temperament. It is obvious he and all his litter mates were very loved and very well cared for! Truffle is such a love bug!!!!! This has been an easy and pleasant experience!!!! - M.A.
ALL POSITIVE, EASY & PLEASANT: RETURNED FOR ANOTHER KITTEN!
Our journey began with Carla & Mitch in the fall of 2019 when we brought home “Truffle”, the most beautiful, perfect cat. He was so well socialized, playful and affectionate! All of our contact with Carla leading up to and including bringing home Truffle was positive. We continued to send Carla updates and pictures long after we were home and settled. We knew we needed to add another Ragdoll and would consider no other place than NinaDeDrap/ Carla & Mitch. “Amber” has joined our family and is awesome! Carla was in constant communication through the entire process and has made everything just as easy and pleasant as the first time. I wouldn’t hesitate to tell anyone to reach out to Carla when they are ready to bring home a purfect kitten!! M.A.
NinaDeDrap Ragdoll Cattery is like a wonderful, loving family to me. When I first contacted the owner, Carla, she replied back to me immediately and helped answer all the questions I had about ragdoll cats. While waiting for the kittens to grow up, Carla shared kittens pictures and kept me updated, how they got examined and vaccinated by the vet, how they played with each other, got potty trained... I’m so happy watching them getting bigger every week!
Finally when I went pick up my little kitty Bliss, I felt like all the time were worth waiting just for him. : D - E.S.
SEND US A LINE :-)
It is always a pleasure to hear from our loving adopting families when they send photos or videos of our babies growing up.
If you're happy... let us know - we'd love to share your thoughts here ;-)
NinaDeDrap Ragdolls are of SUPREME QUALITY, raised within the family among our children at home in a clean healthy environment. Our dear Rags are cared for with love, fed only high quality food from top-brands, and are guaranteed to be HCM Negative. Genetic test results from UC Davis Lab are available upon request. Our cattery prefers pine litter pellets over other types, and kittens are fully potty trained when they go home.
Our goal is to breed authentic Ragdolls - registered with TICA - with characteristics that meet the Cat Fancy standards: Of pointed traits and with true blue eyes. To accomplish this, we carefully select our breeders and study their pedigrees to ensure the continuation of legitimate purebred lines.
True purebred Ragdolls are born WHITE and their color progression slowly develops as they grow over the first 3 years of life. Their overall size growth also takes 3 years to mature. We do not breed sepia, minks or solids.
We recommend you to research as much as you can about the Ragdoll breed, this very unique kind of cat. They are very gentle and known for their extremely docile nature: This is why we ask that you please DON'T declaw or mutilate your new Ragdoll. Our kittens go home socialized and having learned how to use a scratch post, so you should not worry about furniture damage. Please ask us any questions and click below for links to learn more about the Ragdolls' sweet laid-back personality.
