Acquiring RagaMuffin Kittens

ragamuffin breeders

Below is the process for acquiring your RagaMuffin Kittens

  • We reserve the right to hold back any kittens from our litters for evaluation for use in breeding programs.

  • Our kittens will be available to be picked up between 14 -16 weeks, depending upon the kitten's development and socialization.

  • We do not keep waiting lists.   Unfortunately, we found them to become unmanageable.

  • We do not take deposits until kittens are born.  We are very happy to tell you when we expect kittens and we do not mind if you check in frequently for an update (in fact, we like it)!

  • Shortly before a litter is expected to be born, you may complete an Application Form, which you can access from below.  Please do not send an Application Form until we have told you we are expecting kittens.  At that time, you can also review the template of our Sales Contract and our Deposit Receipt.  The Deposit Receipt must be signed at the time you submit your deposit.  Please DO NOT send a deposit until we have reviewed your Application and told you that you may send it.  The Deposit Receipt must be signed and returned to us in order for us to accept the non-refundable deposit as a reservation of any kittens.

  • If you wish to reserve RagaMuffin kittens, a non-refundable $500 deposit is required.  If you are paying by PayPal, the amount of the deposit will be $520.  $500 will be applied against the total adoption fee for your RagaMuffin and $20 is the PayPal fee and is not applied against the adoption fee.

  • Please understand we may be talking to more than one person about the same kitten. Available kittens will be placed in the order in which deposits are received.

  • The remaining balance owed under the Sales Contract for your RagaMuffin must be paid on the date the kitten is picked up, or if your kitten is traveling by courier, two (2) weeks prior to the date the courier is scheduled to leave to take your kitten.  The final payment must be made in cash.   In the event the kitten is being taken to you via courier, you may pay the balance by PayPal, but you must add 4% to the balance if paying by PayPal.  

  • If you change your mind, please understand that we have turned down other potential purchasers, so there are no cash refunds of deposits.

  • Provided that all above requirements have been met, please feel free to ask us any questions you like ahead of time to be sure you want to adopt one of our kittens. We pride ourselves on raising well-socialized, healthy kittens and we want to be sure they go to homes where they will be loved and spoiled.

What to Expect in Choosing Your RagaMuffin Kittens and Other Tidbits

  • You will choose your kitten(s) when they are about six (6) weeks to eight (8) weeks old.  This gives you the opportunity to observe them in videos we will post as they are growing up on our website and Facebook page, as well as photos we will send you.  It also allows us to determine if we feel any kittens should be placed in a breeding program.

  • Each person acquiring one of our RagaMuffin kittens is required to sign the Sales Contract.

  • On rare occasions, one of our kittens that have been chosen will be a late bloomer and turn into the purrfect kitty for our breeding program.  Our primary purpose in breeding these wonderful felines is to promote and better the RagaMuffin breed.  In such cases, we may contact you and offer you another kitten, or at your option, a full refund or a kitten from our next litter.  It is a difficult decision to make, but in those unusual cases where the perfect RagaMuffin kitten comes along and really should be a breeding kitty, we hope you understand.  This rarely happens because we do our best to wait until the kittens are eight weeks old and hope by that age (and usually can) we can determine if they are a kiten we should keep for breeding.  In the unusual case where it might occur, we will do whatever we can to make it up to you.  We truly hope you understand why this may sometimes happen.

  • The Sales Contract provides a two-year health guarantee.  Please read the health guarantee in the Sales Contract provided to you.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

  • In order to assure that our kittens are placed in the best possible homes, we do screen prospective buyers.  We will ask for a veterinary reference.

  • Vaccinations will be up to date at the time pick-up or delivery of your RagaMuffin kittens.

  • Your kitten will be microchipped before leaving Kaerik RagaMuffins.

  • All kittens will be spayed or neutered before being placed

  • We do not allow our kittens to be de-clawed.  Our RagaMuffins have been trained on scratching posts, so please be sure to have scratching posts available when you take your kitten home.  De-clawing is a maiming procedure.

  • You will agree in the Sales Contract that you will not allow your RagaMuffin kitten outdoors.  Cats live much longer and healthier lives inside, where they are not subject to the dangers inherent in living outdoors.

  • We reserve the right to decline any person's adoption application at our sole discretion.

  • Please review the "Bringing Your RagaMuffin Kittens Home" Page, the "Diet and Nutrition Page" the "Grooming your RagaMuffin Kittens" Page, the "RagaMuffin Kittens Dental Care" Page and the "RagaMuffin Kitten Proofing" Page for helpful information on caring for your RagaMuffin.
