Catster advocates for adopting before shopping, though we fully understand that there are many reasons for seeking a breeder. So, we encourage it to be done the right way. We have not personally visited or investigated all the breeders listed here. We have simply put the top-recommended ones all in one place for you to get in touch and make the best decision for yourself. .
All kittens are adorable, but the Ragdoll is one of the most adorable breeds out there. Often called the “gentle giant” of the feline world, their sweet, laidback temperament makes them a fabulous family pet. If you live in Georgia and have been hunting for a Ragdoll kitten of your own, your options for reputable breeders are a bit limited. However, we located a handful that specialize in this breed. Nearly all are registered with The International Cat Association (TICA)1, and most are also licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture. The majority are small, family-owned operations where kittens are raised as members of the family, which means they’ll be used to people and children before joining your household.

The 4 Ragdoll Kitten Breeders in Georgia
1. Heaven’s Ragdolls
All Ragdoll kittens at this tiny cattery are TICA registered and purebred. Types are traditional, sepia, mink, and solid in colors including chocolate, cream, red, lilac, blue, tortie, seal, fawn, cinnamon, and blue-eyed white. Patterns include bicolor, mitted, lynx, and pointed. This closed cattery is licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and has been around since 2004. All kittens are raised inside and handled each day by people, including children, so they should be well-socialized.
They come with up-to-date vaccinations and de-worming and can be microchipped upon request. Kittens also come with a health guarantee against genetic defects. Heaven’s Ragdolls offers new owners lifetime support.
2. Pinkerton Ragdolls
Pinkerton is an in-home hobby breeder registered with TICA and is an inspected home with the Georgia Department of Agriculture. Kittens are raised cage-free in a quiet home and treated as pets, so they’ll get along well with people by the time of purchase. The breeder offers traditional, solid, and mink Ragdolls in the following colors: red and cream, seal and blue, cinnamon and fawn, and chocolate and lilac. Because they are a closed cattery, any visits will have to first be scheduled.
Kittens go to new homes between 13 and 16 weeks of age and are vaccinated, as well as spayed/neutered. They are tested for a variety of diseases, including heart, kidney, and eye diseases, along with identity markers and dilute genes.
3. Ragatootie Ragdolls
This closed, in-home breeder is registered with the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) and has been breeding and showing since 2007. Ragatootie sells the majority of its Ragdolls as pets versus selling to other breeders. Males and females are the same price, unlike at other places. Kittens will be spayed/neutered and wormed and will have had at least two shots before being sold. Ragatootie’s website also includes a plethora of information on the history of Ragdolls, taking care of Ragdolls, and more!
4. Redi Freddie’s Ragdolls
This small cattery is a member of TICA, as well as the Ragdoll Fancier Club International. Kittens are released to new owners at 16 weeks and will have been checked by a vet, spayed/neutered, wormed, and given their first three vaccines. All kittens are also microchipped before leaving the breeder. Plus, your new kitten will come with a written contract, a 2-year health guarantee, and TICA registration papers. Redi Freddie’s has lots of glowing reviews, with many people talking about the breeder’s obvious love for Ragdolls.
