How Did American Ragdoll Kittens Get Started?
American Ragdoll Kittens began this amazing journey in 2009, when newly single mother, Nancy Hamilton, was looking for an unusual companion for her autistic one year old daughter, Victoria.
This new pet and family member would need to be easy maintenance (as Nancy had to work full-time), affectionate (to pull Tory out of her shell), fluffy (as this would stimulate Tory’s neurons), playful (to stimulate movement in Tory), never aggressive (as Tory could play inappropriately at times), hypo-allergenic and clean (as Tory suffered from asthma and allergies and used an inhaler), and be able to happily live out it’s life indoors.
This was not an easy task, and while researching every pet imaginable, Nancy stumbled upon a relatively new breed (started in California in the 1960’s) of cat known as the RAGDOLL. It was known for it’s large size, loving and affectionate temperament, long non-matting coats, serene dispositions, striking appearance, blue eyes, and the tendency to relax in a person’s arms like a ragdoll (hence the name).
We originally began as a cattery dedicated to working on bringing back the ‘all-but-lost’ recessive and dilute colors in the Ragdoll Breed, with good practices and genetics always in mind. Our breeding goal was to provide Ragdolls in lilac and chocolate, which were in the lines all along, but not cultivated. When breeding, we keep the highest quality of lines in mind. We make sure to use all SBT registered Ragdolls. (Cats that have not been outcrossed with other cat breeds, at least, for us, not in the last five generations). We have extensively researched feline and mendelian genetics, but always place health, temperament, and overall elegance of the Ragdoll breed at the forefront.
Over time our vision was mainly realized, and we began to expand our vision to include offering Ragdolls in a rainbow of other colors.
