bulletIt is wise to ensure you have a signed contract from the breeder. The contract should have at least the following:

1. The birth date, color, and parents of the kitten

2. The breeders health guarantee

2. A return policy

3. The immunization record of your kitten, plus future recommendations for shots.

4. Recommendation of food and litter to use with your kitten

5. An altering agreement, if your kitten hasn't already been altered. It is the usual practice for the breeder to hold the registration papers on your kitten until proof of altering (spaying or neutering) has been sent to the breeder. Your breeder will have the procedure outlined in the contract.

bulletSometimes breeders will have more things in the contracts than just the basics. Make sure you read and understand the contract, and then abide by it, to protect yourself, as well as the cat. If your vet should question the advise given by the breeder, give him the name and telephone number of the breeder, and she or he can explain the reasoning behind the recommendation. Remember, the breeder knows the Ragdoll better than most vets know the Ragdoll. The vets play a very important part in your cats life, and we can't do without them. However, each breed of cat is a little different, and your breeder will know the little things about the Ragdoll. Please work with your breeder.
