We have now after 11 years made the decision to stop breeding. We have thoroughly enjoyed raising these amazing cats and have met some lovely people during this time. Breeding is very time consuming, and is expensive if done properly, and it also comes with both highs and lows, but it has been worth it. We will really miss having those adorable kittens running round the house.
We still have a few adults who are staying with us, and one who we are still taking out to shows. We would hope to always have one or two of these wonderful animals to share our home with.
Thank you to everyone who has rehomed our kittens and our adults, and we hope that you enjoy life with a Ragdoll or two as much as we do.
We do still have a couple of cats looking for new homes. Please see our Older Cats page for details.
Now it is time for new hobbies, and some holidays.

Generally Ragdolls get on very well together but every now and then, whilst individually being very loving and easy going, there is a clash of personalities, or they just do not get on with another house member. Unfortunately you can never guarantee that every one will be happy with whoever they live, although generally they do.
5 years ago a couple had two seal colourpoint female kittens from us who settled well into their loving new home. In 2015 they decided to add to their ‘family’, and rehomed two male kittens; a blue colourpoint and a blue bicolour. Despite all of their efforts, rather then the kittens settling alongside the girls, they just do not get on at all. They have been separated in the house, but this is not a long term solution. The owners have therefore come to the very difficult decision to rehome one of the pairs as this will be better for the cats.
If you would be interested in rehoming either the two 5-year old girls, or the two 2-year old boys please contact us by email and we can provide you with further information about each of the cats.
We occasionally have kittens available; please check our KITTENS page.
We do not have Kittens available now but may have more later in the year, but our waiting list is currently closed. Please check the Kittens page and when the list reopens, please email with a little about yourself and what you are looking for. Please do not just leave voicemails – we get too many calls to reply to them all.
We will also be looking to rehome some older cats over the next year. Please contact us, by email, if you would be interested in rehoming an older Ragdoll, telling us a little about yourself and what your preferences are.
We have recently rehomed the following – a lovely 8 month old blue colourpoint neutered boy and a seal colourpoint neutered girl, both happily settled in their new forever homes.
Willow recently produced her first litter for us, sired by Jazz. Being her first it was a small litter but the kittens are really lovely, and of very good size. She has proved to be a really good attentive mother. The kittens have now all moved to their new homes and we look forward to hearing from their new ‘staff ‘.

All booked up now for Willow and Kabuki to compete in various classes at this show at the end of the Month. We thoroughly enjoyed this event last year and are hoping that the girls have a another successful show. As they will be competing against each other in a couple of side classes it will be interesting to see how the judges compare them.
We had a good day out at this show on Saturday with Sweetwillow. She came third in her class, and then picked up two firsts and a third in her side classes.
It was also a great opportunity to catch up with other breeders, including Chris & Allen (Cheham) and to admire their RagaMuffins!
We had a good day out at the show yesterday with both Gus (Kantial Augustus) and Willow (Sonnywood Sweetwillow) doing well in their classes and bringing home a range of rosettes. Gus came 3rd in his Open Class. Willow, who is a really lovely kitten, did very well, winning her Open Class, particularly with this being her first time out on the show bench. Next time she will be competing against other adult cats, so it will be interesting to see how she does then.

WELCOME TO OUR NEW GIRL, HAPPYTYME DAWNMIST.
Misty has joined us from the Happytyme cattery in Yorkshire, and we are grateful to Louise for entrusting her to us. We hope that she will become a great asset to us, and will enable us to breed tabby patterned kittens again in the future.
CURRENT UPDATE: Kittens now moved to their new home.
Sweetwillow, a blue tortie colourpoint girl, bred by Sharon Terry (Sonnywood), has joined the Kantial Ragdoll family this week. She is very pretty, affectionate, and never seems to stop purring. We are looking forward to seeing how she progresses.
