Our Available Kittens
Why choose a Fancy Paws Kitten????
There are many Backyard Breeders out there offering Ragdoll & Maine Coon kittens. Honestly, Gumtree is full of them.
Yes, their kittens are cute. Yes, they may be cheaper! But be warned. You buy cheap and you will by again! You must choose your kitten & Breeder wisely. Not all breeders are equal in care, quality or ethics!
A Fancy Paws Kitten however, has so much more than any other kitten you will find available.
Our kittens are born in our home. They are loved before they are even born! Once they are here they learn all about life as a young kitten from my 3 very noisy children who love kittens just as much as I do.
A Fancy Paws kitten has been exposed to household noises, will not fret when left alone, are emotionally stable, confident and independent. We ensure this by keeping them with Mum (and here in their familiar surrounds) until they are 12-14 weeks of age. This guarantees mentally strong kittens. We do not move our kittens on at 8 weeks (it would be nice sometimes as this is the age they really start to eat us out of house and home) and as research shows this is a critical development age for all kittens.
All our Kings & Queens are PKD (Kidney Disease hereditary to Ragdolls & Maine Coons) & HCM (Fatal Heart Condition) tested negative. Our Kittens are clear of these conditions THROUGH PARENTAGE! Our Ragdolls & Maine Coons are also tested CLEAR regularly for FIV & FeLv, both of which are serious feline diseases. Our Maine Coon Kings & Queens undergo AN ADDITIONAL Hip Score X-Ray for Feline Hip Dysplasia (FHD). This is an orthopaedic condition of the hip joint that can affect cats. Large bodied cats are affected at a higher percentage than smaller cats. FHD is the result of abnormal development of one or both hip joints and causes instability and degeneration of the joints.
We take genetic health testing very seriously and are committed to the health of each and every Fancy Paws Kitten.
We are registered with an accredited Cat Fancy organisation, Queensland Feline Association. We are governed by their rules and ethical breeding practices and take this seriously. We answer to them. A backyard breeder answers only to his wallet.
To the public, vet work costs between $450 - $850 (To desex, keep up to date with vaccinations, microchip etc) for your 'cheaper' Backyard Bred Kitten. So after you purchase your 'cheaper' Backyard Bred Ragdoll Kitten for $500-$1500 (yes, weve seen some priced at $2000+) you then have to fork out another lump sum to the vet to ensure the health of your kitten. That of course is IF your kitten doesn't die on you within a few weeks of coming home because he is too young or was inbred and has congenital birth defects that could have been prevented from the proper health tests mentioned above. Sadly, i recieve far too many phone calls and emails from heartbroken families looking to replace their new backyard bred kitten that suddenly passed away within weeks, sometimes days, of being home. Your 'bargain' Ragdoll Kitten has now cost you $950- $2250 and you may not even have a purebred Ragdoll (yep, I'll get to that part soon).
A Fancy Paws Kitten has all her vet work completed. No risk of unwanted pregnancy if she gets out of the house one night. No time off work or away from the home to organise such vet work. We have done everything for you and them, for the first 12 months, leaving you more time to bond and cherish your new Ragdoll. Now how awesome is that?!
A Fancy Paws Ragdoll will have pedigree papers guaranteeing authenticity of the breed. In fact, a 5 generation pedigree! This ensures your new kitten is no impostor, no cross bred with blue eyes.... But 110% Ragdoll.
Lastly, but let's not limit ourselves to just these points.
Fancy Paws Kittens are Quality. Debonair. Alluring. Stunning. Dazzling.
They have the WOW FACTOR! And who wouldn't want to be owned by perfection?!
Payment/Deposit: A $300 non refundable deposit is required to secure your Ragdoll or Maine Coon Kitten. Kittens are not considered reserved until a deposit has been received which we recommend placing early to avoid disappointment. We are also more than happy to offer payments plans to assist you with paying for your new kitten. We aim to make your dream of owning a TRUE, Ragdoll or Maine Coon Kitten a reality.
Full payment is required upon pickup or 1 week prior to your baby being transported or 48hrs prior to pick up.
Long Distance & Interstate Transport: We are more than happy to assist with transporting your new fur-baby to you. Kittens travel very well whilst in transit and cope with their adventure with little to no stress at all. Please note SINCE COVID HIT we no longer fly Kittens. Airlines have become increasingly costly and do not provide what we consider appropriate care of our Kittens during transit. ALL our Kittens travel via ROAD across Australia either by Dogmovers (QLD & NSW) OR by Private Pet Courier to other locations.
Ragdoll Kittens are $1500.
Maine Coon Kittens are $2750.
Our kittens leave us, ready to take on the world at 12-14 weeks of age.
Depending on each kittens individual development.
Plus the following...
*Pedigree Papers - This is proof your kitten is a TRUE RAGDOLL/MAINE COON and is the REAL DEAL!!!!!!!
NO LOOK-A-LIKE...ONLY A PUREBRED, REGISTERED RAGDOLL/ MAINE COON WITH THE PAPERS TO PROVE IT!!! IF YOUR RAGDOLL OR MAINE COON DOES NOT HAVE PEDIGREE PAPERS - YOU DONT HAVE A REAL ONE!!!!!!!
*Parents have had genetic health tests and scans (TESTED NEGATIVE FOR HCM/PKD/HEART SCANS AND HIP X-RAYS)
*Vaccinated Twice With F3
*Parasite Treated (For flea's & Worms every 2 weeks since birth)
*Familiar with and using indoor litter trays*
* Please keep in mind, we try our very best to have your kitten leave with positive toileting habits. However we do not consider kittens fully litter trained at 12-14wks. Training will need to be continued once they leave us and are in their furever homes. This takes commitment and patience. Some kittens catch on quickly whilst other kittens take longer to adjust before it becomes second nature to them.
*Take Home Food And Toy
*Having been cuddled and tickled, raised in my home under foot with my noisy kids - Not in cages!
*A LIFETIME of support and on going assistance from us as Registered Breeders.
