You're getting a Ragdoll kitten (how exciting!) and you have questions about caring for it, once she or he is home.

A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home is a comprehensive guide that covers every aspect of kitten care a new owner needs to know written in a warm, friendly tone.

What if you knew what to expect and prepare for before you even picked your Ragdoll kitten up? Wouldn't it be nice to know how to kitten proof your home? Or what about what to buy in anticipation for your little one's arrival?

Looking for recommended products for a new Ragdoll kitten? Looking for suggestions on everything from water fountains to scratching posts, pet carriers, cat litter, litter boxes, cat bowls, etc....products that a Ragdoll cat owner just can't live without? How about vet visits and cat health insurance? There's a lot to consider and prepare for. A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide includes links to videos and products, and the information presented is from real life experiences, not repeated from other cat books. There are many quick, simple tips that can be used with Ragdoll kittens.  The author also has a corresponding website Floppycats.com, where you can easily connect with other Ragdoll cat owners.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

It took me several years to gather the information for A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home.  I spent hours upon hours talking to breeders, Ragdoll cat owners as well as vets about what were best practices, etc.

In late 2004, my parents adopted two Ragdoll kittens from Kentucky when our family's Rags was 15 years old.  We hadn't had a kitten for 15 years and moreover, we had never had a multiple cat household.  We did have a multiple pet household - always a German Shepherd dog and a Ragdoll cat.

It was important for us to not only upset Rags, the 15-year old, but also to welcome, Caymus and Murphy, the kittens.  We wanted to understand how to make it all work.  So I asked breeders, vets and also fellow Ragdoll cat owners through my website (an informational website about Ragdoll cats) about best practices for introduction as well as food options, etc.  Because of the research and approach, everything went well with introductions.  The breeder had recommended two kittens because if we only got one, then the one would always bug Rags. Whereas if we got two, then they would play with each other and leave Rags alone. 

After Rags passed away in March 2009, I became more serious about looking for my first kittens, Charlie and Trigg.  Since I had just said good-bye to a 19.5 year old cat, I knew that my two juvenile delinquents would be totally different, but it wasn't until after they were home that I realized how very different it would be!

I wrote and published, A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home, two years after the death of my dear, Rags. 

Much of what I experienced taking care of all of them (5 Ragdoll cats) is what I talk about in this book. 

The generosity of Ragdoll breeders who I have communicated with either via phone, in person or through e-mail over the past 10 years should not go unnoticed, their generosity of spirit, unending love for the breed and their attention to the breed have in part made this possible. 

In particular, I want to give a huge thank you to Peg Nelson of Meriwidoz Ragdolls (retired), Jeanette Gogan-Olivier of Angelight Ragdolls, Andra Schroeder of Little Apple Ragdolls, Debbie Le-Strange of GUYSNDOLLS Ragdolls, Melissa Keefer of Pretty Kitty Ragdolls, who helped give me additional information that I could add to this ebook. 

My vet, KC Cat Clinic, a feline specialty practice, has also been instrumental in helping me gain knowledge about overall cat health, well being and care.

I hope you enjoy reading A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide: Bringing Your Ragdoll Kitten Home as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Jenny Dean has created the total package of what an E-Book should be. A Ragdoll Kitten Care Guide is easy to read and entertaining, simple to search and contains unexpected content. It not only tells, but shows what the new kitten owner needs to know. There are links to videos, products, and the information presented is from real life experiences, not repeated from other cat books. There are many quick, simple tips that can be used with Ragdolls and Maine Coons. Any large cat has different needs and Jenny addresses these in her book.

The book is well priced for the value. Purchasing it before you bring your kitten home will help you make good choices as you shop to get ready.

I'd suggest that breeders may wish to include a copy when they sell a kitten. It would save them a lot of time answering phone calls and emails from concerned new kitten parents. Well worth the small investment.

This is an excellent resource for people purchasing a new Ragdoll Kitten, people who already own one and want new ideas, and anyone interested in the breed. Yes, Ragdoll Kittens are different from other cats. You have to meet one to truly understand, but Jenny does a great job explaining the breed.

I recommend purchasing this book.

Jenny and I exchanged Ragdoll books. This was the first ebook I've ever read. To those of you who haven't read one yet (which I am guessing will be very few of you) you can read it on a computer and do not need a tablet. It's like a cross between a book and a blog with clickable links. I liked Jenny's honest and personal experience stories from the 5 Ragdolls in her life. I love the picture of her with Rags, the cat that prompted her website. I appreciated the reasons behind the questions to ask a breeder, the products that were tested and reviewed, and the info about her mom's custom kitty door. I found the book to offer more than the title implied. This isn't just a book for new kitty owners, although it does cover that. I learned of new products for my two Ragdoll wannabes. The book complements her website and her Yahoo! group very nicely. I'm happy to have added to it my "Ragdoll Bookshelf"

"This eBook taught us so much regarding what to expect and how to prepare our home for our first Ragdoll kitten - without it, we would've made serious mistakes that could've damaged our relationship with our kitten! After two flights in cargo and 12 hours of travel, we just wanted to cuddle her up, but she needed to be comfortable and come out of her carrier in her own time.

Even more helpful was the advice on introducing 2 cats to each other - 3 weeks later, we brought home our Bengal kitten - a polar-opposite personality-wise! We followed the eBook's instructions and now we have two happy, well-adjusted kittens that are best friends, with no territory or jealousy issues. The eBook applies to ALL kittens and cats, not Ragdolls exclusively!

THANK YOU Jenny for all your help and guidance in bringing home our new family members!" - Sharon L

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book right around the time I got my Ragdoll in August 2012. I had been around cats most of my life but had never owned a purebred. I found this book to be very informative and easy to understand. It eased my mind that I was making the right decision in owning a Ragdoll. Jenny is very knowledgeable about the breed and what it takes to be a caring human to these delightful balls of fur. If you are thinking about including a Ragdoll in your life, this book is a must read!
