Hello! Welcome to BlueDreamer Ragdolls of Kansas City.
Thank you for stopping by!
We are a small TICA & CFA registered cattery, family show/breeder located in South Kansas City, Missouri. We strive for excellence in health, socialization, temperament and conformation. We show in CFA, since there are several local shows here every year, but also enjoying starting to show in TICA, as well.
Our cats/kittens are raised in our home with children and dogs. Kittens are whelped in our bedroom and spend their first few weeks right next to me. When their eyes open, and they start to move about, we move them into the living room, where they quickly become accustomed to the sights and sounds of everyday living. Until they transfer from our hands to yours, these sweet babies are held, stroked, snuggled and loved. They will be well socialized and of good temperament. Each kitten will be de-wormed, vaccinated, fecal-tested on schedule micro-chipped, spay/neutered and vet-checked TWICE before going home. We are here for the lifetime of these precious babies.
All Bluedreamer Kings and Queens are DNA tested for HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy) PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease), Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency, PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), Mucopolysaccharidosis VI and VII, through CFA Neogen (http://www.catdnatest.org/ ). And YES, documents are here onsite to view. Kitten families receive a copy in their packet.
Do your homework and a lot of research! Be wary of breeders using registries other than CFA/TICA (such as ACA). There is no guarantee of lineage, no breed standard, and their offspring are ineligible to be registered with CFA or TICA. Listen to what you "feel" when you speak to another breeder. Are you feeling unsettled? Are there red flags? Are you being rushed? Do they want to use Walmart Moneygram or other uncommon payment method? Do they require deposits before a litter is born, or require you pay for the kitten upfront (more than 1-2 weeks before pick-up) ? Doe something make you hesitate? I encourage you, to keep looking if you ever feel something is not right, even if you are in complete infatuation with a picture! (It's happened to me, too.) Slow down, take your time and wait for the right breeder. There are many great ones, but also poor ones, and scammers too!
We have been asked if we carry the "RARE" Mink, Solid or Sepia Ragdolls. Since these are not true Ragdolls, not included in the breed standard, and not eligible to register or show, we do not. Our respect for the breed and the others who have worked to hard to establish the Ragdoll breed, does and always will come first.
While we only started our cattery in 2017, we have bred Cavalier King Charles Spaniels for several years. The key to success is having a mentor. My Ragdoll and Cavalier breeder friends are priceless. I appreciate the wisdom of Kansas Ragdolls, House of Steward, Rosecottage. Marlcreek, Ohemgee, & Cottonblues to name a few. We are also huge fans of FLOPPYCATS, https://www.floppycats.com/where you can find a treasure trove of everything there is to know about Ragdolls!
A note on contacting me. I admit it---I can be incredibly SLOW to respond if we do not have any kittens to offer. We have our church, kids at home, college and post-college, elderly parents who need our time and attention. I work PRN as an occupational therapist and professional speaker. One week I may work very long days and others, I don't work outside the home at all. Persistence pays off when attempting to get my attention! We are a small cattery, and plan to remain small, therefore we only plan a few litters a year. Everyone who adopts one of our kittens is very important to me and is welcomed into the Bluedreamer family!
Also, because we are small, if a family contacts me wanting a "female Blue Bi-color in the summer" that is nearly impossible for me to fulfill. Unfortunately, I cannot predict color, sex, pattern or timing until a litter has arrived and their color starts to come in. It is much easier to get a kitten if you let me know you are flexible - such as "I want a female, or "I would love a Blue Mitted of either sex. Things move quicker if you just want a loving pet!
