-queens are bred for litters 6 to 12 months apart. Our mommas health is important to us! Queens in good condition raise healthier babies :)
-kept in a clean and regularly sanitized home rich in mentally stimulating activities.
- exposures to infectious agents is strictly limited by operation of a closed cattery to protect momma and babies, but you may have unlimited live audiovisual visits with your kitten.
-extensively socialized with other cats which is extremely important since most cats are multi cat households.
-raised with dogs since most pet homes have both cats and dogs
- handled DAILY the breeder. This is a HOME; not a cat mill. Our cats mental health is as important to us as their physical health!
-retired early (usually at age 3) so they can go be a beloved pet for the rest of their lives.
Azure Sky Ragdolls are a small home based, TICA registered and licensed Ragdoll Breeder in BC. Our cattery is located in the southwestern interior of BC in Kamloops. Currently we are the only TICA Ragdoll breeder in Kamloops.
All our kings and queens are beloved pets in our home, and raised with much love.
Head Kitten Nanny - Sophia - German Shepherd
Sophia has been raised with cats since she was little; they are part of her family. She does offend them to no end when they have grown into adults as she insists that she must still clean their face AND bottoms. As such all the kittens we raise do spend a significant amount of time looking like Elvis with their hair swept back.
Nanny Sophia of course is constantly “on the job”.
Assistant Kitten Nanny -Bear- White Eskimo
Bear has been raised in our cattery and is responsible for befriending all the older kittens. He is "best friends" Seraphim. We find them sleeping together all the time. The young king and queens all head butt him in a sign of affection.
