Email about our retirees
We are an in home cattery located in Hanson, Massachusetts. We are registerd with TICA, CFF, and currently show our cats in CFF. Our whole family is involved with the cats and kittens, from caring for them, to the socialization process of the newborns.
We breed for health first, then temperment, and everything follows those two. As a testament to the temperment, Bogie and Bacall's boy Brimley is now a therapy pet.. He visits schools and nursing homes to show what a ragdoll is all about. He loves "ragdolling" everyone he meets.
Some of our brags:

We have traditional ( no lynx or reds) and non-tradional( i.e. lynx,torties, red) lines
We have a contract that includes a health guarantee, and all of our pet quality kittens are spayed/neutered before they go to your home.
Our kittens are vet checked, FelK and FIV free, wormed, and vaccinated before leaving our house at approximately 12 to 14 weeks of age.. By this time they are properly socialized, use litter appropriately, are on solid food, and are comfortably weaned from their mom.
Before we breed any of our cats, we consider type, lines, pattern, general birth history of the mother, and quality of previous litters. We are not out to overbreed and produce just a "pet".. We want to improve on our lines, improve the look of our cats, and our breedings should reflect that goal. We show our cats and kittens, so see that they are up to standard, and even though we don't sell breeders often, we hope to have breeder/show quality in our litters. Producing a lot of "pet quality" kittens does not improve our ragdolls. .
If you visit many breeders' sites, you will see that some breeders have their own "look". When you like a particular kitten/cat, you probably like that breeders goals. We at Romantic Rags work in that direction. Our cats have a certain "look".. Right now it comes from our Foundation Lines, KimsDolls, RacinRags, Cherryhill, to name a few. Hopefully it will continue in our RomanticRags lines.
We do welcome visitors, but by appointment only.. Visitors are not allowed if there are un vaccinated kittens in the house.
We will hold a kitten from a litter with a deposit ( non refundable - but transferable to another litter) We cannot hold a kitten without a deposit - this assures that you are seriously interested in a RomanticRags baby.
We want to thank our wonderful mentor, Kim Balas of KimsDolls for all the time and advice she has helped us with over the years.. She is a wonderful, knowledgeable breeder, and also a good friend. Thank you for entrusting us with your cats and kittens. You are our first call when we want advice on breeding, or anything "ragdollish"..

You can surely find a kitten for less money than what some of us charge, but
If you are looking for an inexpensive Ragdoll, please keep in mind quality is not expensive . It is priceless. Our ragdolls are healthy, well socialized, vet checked.. You may find a less expensive kitten, but you won't find a quality kitten like you will from a reputable, registered breeder who belongs to TICA, CFF,CFA, ACFA. We take the time to research health, pedigrees, and make sure our cats and kittens are up to the Ragdoll Standard. We work with each other to advise, share experiences, and produce healthy cats. We are aware of health issues like FeLK, HCM, and FIP and are happy to share information. We make sure to early spay/neuter when it is available though our vets to eliminate unethical "breeders" from getting our cats and breeding them.
