Ragdoll Cat Price

A long time ago (or it seems like it), I wrote a blog post about the buying a Ragdoll cat.  A Ragdoll cat price does vary quite a bit depending on the potential show and breeder quality of the cat in question.

I thought it would be fun to show the prices of the Ragdoll cats my family has purchased:

  1. Rags, purchased in 1989 with his brother Cosby – $350/ea
  2. Caymus and Murphy, purchased in 2004 – $600/ea (reduced by $50 each because my parents were buying 2)
  3. Charlie and Trigg, purchased in 2009 – $800/each (reduced by $50 each because I was buying 2)

Here is a break down of the prices of Ragdoll kittens that I have found (please leave comments below to let me know if prices are much higher than these):

Quality: Approximate Cost: Notes:
Pet (Alter) Quality USD$850+ (some breeders charge more for females due to the fact that spaying costs more than neutering, also some breeders will charge more for rare or non-traditional color patterns, like Torties CreamsLilacs and Flames)
Show (Alter) Quality USD$1200- USD $2300+ This is a Ragdoll cat that is perfectly marked to be shown at cat shows, but is spayed or neutered.
Breeder Quality USD$1500- USD $2500+ This is a Ragdoll cat that is fit for breeding and should also have been tested to be free of genetic diseases.
Show/Breeder Quality USD$2300- USD $2700+ This is a Ragdoll cat that is perfectly marked to be shown at cat shows, and is also fit for breeding.

To see an explanation of what each quality means, please visit Buying a Ragdoll cat.

Since this is such a popular topic, I went ahead and asked our Facebook community – How much did you pay for your Ragdoll kitten/cat?  What year was it?  Are you a breeder – do these prices pretty much match your ranges?

Really though – the question about Ragdoll Cat Price should ALSO include the total cost of a cat in 1 year’s time. A kitten can be quite expensive because of vaccinations and what not.  A cat can still be expensive because of food, litter, vet bills, etc.  Do you have an idea of what you budget for your kitty every year?
