Welcome to Hearthrob
Hearthrob is a small in home cattery raising only Ragdoll kittens. We are located in NY. I have been raising Ragdolls since 1998.
The kittens are raised in my home.
Hearthrob cats and kittens are registered with TICA and we are members of RFCI - Ragdoll Fanciers Club International and RI (Ragdoll International).
My cats are free fed dry food. They are also given wet food once daily with human grade chicken, beef or fish added. Kittens are fed wet food twice daily and are free to eat dry food or momma's milk bar.
You will receive a copy of your kitten's parents negative genetic test result with your kittens supplies. Testing is done at Univerity of Davis Genetics Laboratory.
Kitten will have been to the vet for a health check up and you will receive a signed health certificate along with kitten's supplies. The kitten has a two year genetic health guarantee.
Two sets of three vaccinations are given before the kitten leaves for its new home.
Hearthrob kittens are sold with a contract. I will be happy to email a copy to you.
Kittens are registered with TICA. Registration papers will be sent to you once I received proof the kitten has been spayed/neutered. This surgery should be done at 6 months of age to allow proper growth and prevent future problems.

Kittens are sold as pets and not to be bred unless otherwise agreed. If you are interested in breeding, please let me know. They are not to be declawed and they are to be indoor only pets. Allowing your ragdoll outside would expose your pet to parasites, disease, predatory animals and folks who would like your beautiful ragdoll cat for free.

Goodbye my sweet boy... thank you for all the love through the years.
Hello. My name is Christine and I have been raising these lovely cats since 1998. My original breeders came from well respected old-time catteries - Hemlock Trails, Pretty Paws, Rockerbye Rags, Moon Valley, vanZeewald. My babies can be traced back to the original start of the breed by Ann Baker.
I am retired now and have all my time to spend with my cats and kittens. The cats have a lovely, newly renovated cattery with walkways and perches. They spend their days playing, socializing and sleeping. Kittens can be picked up from my home in Queens or Long Island, whichever is more convenient. Kittens can also be delivered to you .
I have two whole males. Hearthrob's TazdeJose - Taz for short , who is a 7 year old seal point. Hearthrob's Louie, a seal mitted lynx. I have six whole females - Angel, a blue cream torbie; Olive, a seal point and Cherry, a flame point, Hemlock Trails Marley, a blue mitted lynx, Darla and Bessie both seal mitteds.
We do not have many litters a year which allows plenty of time for socializing and enjoying each new batch of kittens. Although breeding is actually a lot of work and expense - I get to be involved in the most wonderful moments - I get to see them start to run, play, wrestle and mock attack each other.
Marley had a litter of 2 born in August 8, 2019. There is a seal point boy and seal point girl available for deposit. Darla had a seal mitted boy born August 22.
Please see the Kittens Available and additional pictures page for photos. Photos will be added as the kittens grow. Kittens can be put on hold for you with a deposit.
From time to time we have adult cats looking for forever homes. These are grown cats that are retired breeders or have never been bred. Pictures of available adults.
If you are interested, please complete the contact me form and tell me abit about yourself and the home the kitten/cat would be going to. This form will be sent to my email when you click on the "Send" button.
I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
