Ragdoll Breeder - Cats - VIC : Perfect Pets Profile

Hello, thankyou for visiting!
I am Susan of Luxafel Ragdolls. I am a small scale registered breeder with GCCFV and have owned Ragdolls for almost 20 years.
I live in S/E Melbourne and breed a limited number of kittens every year, quality, not quantity!

ABOUT OUR KITTENS
At Luxafel Ragdolls, we are dedicated to breeding gorgeous kittens with the sweetest personalities. Our kittens are born & raised in my home surrounded with lots of love everyday. I only breed a small number of kittens every year so that I have enough time to spend with every single kitten.

Breeder Questionnaire

Question. Do you health test in accordance with the current standards and recommended guidelines for your breed? Can you demonstrate your knowledge of any required DNA or other health related test results concerning your breed (if applicable).

We DNA test all our breeding cats in our cattery with Orivet for many diseases including PKD and HCM. Heres the full list of what we currently screen for : (As new conditions tests become available we will add them also) Polycystic Kidney Disease, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, Acute Intermittent Porphyria, Vitamin D Rickets Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome Hereditary Retinal Degeneration PRA (CEP290), Chylomicronemia - Lipoprotein Lipase Deficiency Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome, Cystinuria SLC3A1, Frontonasal Dysplasia GM1 & GM2 - Gangliosidosis, Haemophilia B, Hyperoxaluria GRHPR, Niemann-Pick Disease - Sphingomyelinosis Hypokalaemia Periodic Polymyopathy, Mucopolysaccharidosis, Myopathy (COLQ) and Myotonia Congenita.
Question. Do you ensure that your kittens are appropriately socialised? Please provide details about how you raise your kittens to ensure that their environmental and social needs are met, that they are suitable as pets. And, do you ensure that the new family understands and is equipped to continue this socialisation?
Yes
Absolutely, our kittens are surrounded with love from the minute they are born. They are born and raised in my home where all they know is warmth and love from birth. With a dedicated kitten nursery, once they are old enough they will enjoy lots of activities to keep them busy and stimulated. Once they are old enough to roam safely, my whole house becomes their playground!! All our kittens are raised indoors where they do what they please just like they would in your home. They steal our seats on the sofa, they try to eat our food, and they are a part of our family until they become a part of yours ❤️
Question. What written information about the conditions of sale, warranty, and information concerning the care and maintenance of the breed do you provide?
Yes
Kittens leave with a Luxael Ragdolls kitten folder that includes paperwork and information including genuine 4-generation pedigree papers, a 2-year genetic health guarantee, insurance policy activated, food and other suppliers lists, vaccination, worming and desexing certificates along with lots of kitten food and more. I am always happy to advise the best tried & tested supplies we use and recommend or don't recommend also.
Question. Is ensuring that your kittens go to the right home a high priority? How do you ensure that the kitten will be a good fit, and be well cared for in its new home? Do you have a verbal or personal interview?
Yes
YES, absolutely. I ask everyone to fill out my kitten application to get to know them better and make sure they are ready for the responsibility of a Luxafel kitten. I screen everyone who wants a kitten and ensure they go to only the best homes where they are not just a cat, they are going to be a large part of your family for a very long time.
Question. Do you offer ongoing support? For example: Help with introducing a kitten to other animals; help with any health or behavioural problems that might occur.
Yes
I am always here for my extended Luxafel family if they need me ❤️ I have a Luxafel Family FB group that my kitten buyers are invited to join if they like where they can share photos and funny stories or anything they like. They can get to meet other Luxafel kitten/cat owners also.
Question. In the long term, do you assist with re-homing a kitten or cat if for some reason the new family are unable to care for it?
Yes
Yes, I definitely would help with rehoming and have before. I understand that sometimes things change and we must make hard decisions, I only ask that if an owner's situation ever changes and they can no longer care for a cat I bred that they please contact me, I will always do my best to help rehome him/her.
Question. Do you offer pet insurance?
Yes
We send our kittens to their new homes with a Trupanion insurance policy :) We also include a 2-year genetic health guarantee.
