You should consider which stud to use when your kitten is about 6 months old. First, you should email the Stud Registrar to request for guidance on pedigrees that are consistent. Once you have chosen an appropriate pedigree, you can contact the stud owner who will most likely ask for a copy of the pedigree of your queen unless they already know it.

For comfort, do not just use the closest stud, but test first what are the excellent and poor levels of each stud and measure them against your queen’s. Visit in advance, if necessary, or request for a photo. Check what DNA samples are needed–most pet holders expect your king to have the FeLV (Feline Leukemia) and FIV (Feline Aids) exams within 24 hours of continuing to study. If your crown is thicker boned, the pet should be thick boned, fight lower skin colour by using a pet with powerful skin colour, etc.

If your vet is unable to do a snap test, request the proprietor of the stud as they can send for their vet to do the trials for you from Monday to Friday (generally more challenging occasions).

Because most Ragdolls are strongly linked-many coming down from the initial 12 cats carried over from the United States-it’s important to attempt to maintain the pedigrees as far apart as you can, especially the first 3 centuries where you should strive for all the distinct rows if necessary. You will most probably discover that on a variety of rows, the fourth millennium adds up.

Line reproduction and inbreeding are better kept to those with the cat’s concerned expertise and expertise so that any hereditary faults are recognized and can be held into consideration before continuing with a mating. Progenies of cats that are too tightly grown can be infertile, and while you double on the fine levels, you also double on any deficiency. (See Coefficients for Inbreeding Calculations).


Make sure your king receives her’ flu and enteritis supporter vaccine at probably 28 days before mating. Talk to your vet about the option of offering your princess a’ murdered’ flu vaccine launcher 10 days before the kittens are delivered as it will offer her the highest security before birth stress. Never use a pregnant cat’s’ live’ vaccine.


You should not match your Ragdoll Queen under 10 months of era. Before mating, it’s also sensible to let her have a complete call.

Contact the stud manager when your wife goes on call to verify that he is accessible and arrange to bring her there (kindly leave at least 24 hours as the stud proprietor has to disinfect the stud home in preparing for your wedding).

Just in the event that your first stud selection is enjoyable another young lady when your cat goes on a call, it may be helpful to have a second stud selection set up.


Contact your veterinarian and create a blood test reservation. Your veterinarian should be able to take blood without an anesthetic for your cat. If he stays on an anesthetic, I would suggest that you email another veterinary practice or request the stud proprietor to do it at their vet for you.


Please make sure your cat’s fur is pest-free and you’ve inspected her eyes for ear mites. Snip the edges of her fingers to avoid her from rubbing the stud is advisable. She should be in a state of top-displaying no haws. Never bring a pet to practice as the pet proprietor must safeguard the stud’s safety and is quite free to hesitate to carry your pet if he/she notices any indication of disease or weakness.


Remember to present to the stud proprietor your blood test cards and the cat’s vaccination certificate. He/she should demonstrate you the permits of the stud in order.

The standard operation, when the king comes to stud, is to be in “queen’s rooms” for the first 12 hours until she comes to understand her fresh home and continues to understand the stud. Most stud owners oversee the matings over the first 24 hours, and if everything’s fine and the queen’s relaxed, she can be allowed to run with the stud freely. Usually, the cats are matting for 2/3 days and then they are prepared to collect. If you reside a long way back, know to verify in progress if leaving her for longer would be useful or not. It is not suggested that she be stuck with the stud for more than 5 days to avoid second matches.

The next day, to lay your mind to sleep, the stud proprietor button to see how she got down. Hopefully, you may discover that before she is receptive, the cats have already matted or the monarch may need a little longer.

Upon your return to collect your cat, you will be asked to pay the stud fee (recommended £ 300) if effective matings have been observed and you should obtain a mating license to advise when the anticipated litter should arrive. If your queen isn’t pregnant at the first attempt, it’s normal to offer you several free matches until the queen gets pregnant or you may be invited to try another cat. Before bringing your cat to stud, it is suggested that you negotiate the terms and conditions for mating with the stud proprietor.


Pinking up Your queen’s first indication of pregnancy is when she’s’ pinked up’ (your nipples should grow clearly and feel orange). Usually this is evident between 3/4 decades. You may also realize that during the earlier phases, and again at the subsequent point, she eats a little more, particularly just before she goes to work.

You have to make sure she has plenty of nutrition and let her consume as much as she likes, always forgetting to have accessible fresh water.

Gestation For Ragdolls, the gestation period is about 65 days, but maintain an eye on her from day 63. If by day 69/70 she did not go to work, it would be wiser for her to be examined by your vet.

The Birth Trying

to be there when your king goes to work is always sensible. Most women like to learn that they are encouraged by their proprietor beside them. It also implies that when and when problems occur, you can cope with them.

The monarch should understand what to do as a law by instinct, but there are always occasions when it’s a crown mistress. Once the first kitten is born, she should start to wash her face to clear the nasal passages-if she doesn’t have to wash her lungs and nose to breathe. Most probably she will delay until afterbirth comes before breaking the umbilical cord. (Don’t be amazed-it may require up to quarter an hour to get through the afterbirth and sometimes the second kitten may be raised before the first afterbirth, so verify that there is an afterbirth with each child). If she doesn’t seem to understand what to do, you ought to act and break her cable-but not too near to the tummy of the kitten. Make sure you sterilized the scissors in advance and with a little medicated talc dab the bottom of the rope.

Once all kittens have come securely and the king is happy to purr and her kittens are suckling, it is important to alter the bedding for her to be smooth and safe. From practice, when using a heated cloth, Ragdolls get too warm and they start gasping. They may become restless and they don’t want to remain with the litter. Switch off the hot board if this should occur, but create sure space is hot and clear of draughts.

A guide to average weights for kittens – How to Weigh my Kitten Properly

Weighing the kittens, mention from day 2, is the best way to verify that everything is working well, as every day they should get a little. A 1 week old kitten’s average weight is approx. 6-7 oz (170-200 g); 2 weeks approx. 9-11 oz (255-310 g); 3 weeks 10-13 oz (280-370 g); 4 weeks 12-15 oz (340-425 g); and by the time they are 1 month old, approx. 1 lb (450 g) as a manual. They should weigh between 1 lb 13 oz-2 lb 3 oz (820g-1 kg) and between 3lbs and 4lbs (1.3-1.8 kg) at 2 months of age somewhere. These are estimated weights-at a certain era some kittens will weigh more, and others will weigh less-do not care as soon as each kitten frequently gains.

Weaning At the same moment, not all kittens wean. Usually between 4-6 decades the kittens will demonstrate indications either by digging into the meals of their mother or loving whatever you give them. Baby rice with Cimicat or diluted evaporated milk or cat gloop is a nice starting point.

Usually they all enjoy this and then they can advance on fried black seafood, poultry, cooked eggs, thin, pilchards, kitten Felix or one of the patented frozen ingredients like kitten Iams immersed in cold air and allowed to dry, which has all the extra vitamins and minerals a puppy requirements to create powerful, good teeth.

If you use one of the proprietary brands of dried foods by 12-15 quarters, most of them will have graduated from it by then. Remember, a kitten’s stomach is tiny and it’s not wise to put in too many different foods at once, because if they can’t handle a specific meal or make it lose, you’ll have to find out which meat it’s.

Toilet Training Remember to alter the kittening pen’s bedding every day as it’s soiled with urine, given only a little, but enough that the ammonia coults. The simplest route to begin toilet training is to bring a tiny litter tray next to them in the kittening cage from week 3/4 onwards and raise them into it regularly, smoothly shifting their front claws to offer them the concept; their mother generally tells them what to do.

Penned kittens are likely simplest to coach, but we each have our own techniques as trainers and some love their kittens to have more liberty once they can move around. Patience is the watchword-don’t care if it’s not for a week or two, you’re right.
