Taking a break
New queen Amethyst (“Mystie”) and new stud Blue Topaz (“Jazz”) have not “clicked” yet. Jazz is trying, but Mystie has him a bit... intimidated. Eventually they will figure it out, but in the meantime, it’s better to say we’re taking a break and referring folks to other breeders.
Because this is a 5-month process from start to finish (9 week pregnancy then 12+ weeks until the kittens are ready to go home), if you’re looking for a kitten before mid-summer, I am very comfortable sending you to Bev, Lena and Kristie, depending on where you live and who has available babies. Their contact information can be found on our Important Links page.
Zhiva is a highly affectionate but very shy girl who needs a quieter, more relaxed household than we can provide (rambunctious kittens and hormonal adults stress her). Zhiva is a large girl and loves sitting next to us and cuddling.
If we can’t provide what you want in a cat or kitten, we are definitely happy to make recommendations with other quality breeders with sound practices and high ethics, who may be a better match. Just ask, or visit our Important Links page and look at Friends of Rhapsody.
If you’re looking for a Ragdoll or are simply interested in meeting our cats and kittens, feel free to contact us now, and we’ll either set you up for a visit with us, or give you the contact information for any of these great breeders (or both – embrace the power of AND!)!
Visits are always welcome as an opportunity to educate people about what to expect from the breed. Even if we don’t have the purrsonality you’re looking for, we are in contact with other ethical, quality breeders in our region and are very happy to make strong recommendations.
