PawPeds

PawPeds, in pursuit of their mission to raise the level of understanding about breeding and genetics in the Cat World, offers an educational course series as follows:

  • General course step 1, or G1 for short, is mainly about cat ownership. 
  • Step 2 of the general course, G2, is mainly about having a litter but also includes basic genetics and breeding plans.
  • Step 3, G3, is more in depth about selective breeding, genetics, physiology, cat food, behavior, etc. 

Riverside Rags completed G1 and is working toward G2 and G3.

  • The kittens don’t experience a kitty mill lifestyle.
  • Kittens are fully cared-for, with appropriate veterinary care and clean, safe living conditions.
  • Breeding cats are tested and vaccinated, and produce healthy kittens with quality genetics.
  • The breeder can provide you accurate information and guidance about your new kitty.
  • Most of all, the breeder has the experience and facilities necessary to strengthen the ragdoll breed while helping wonderful families adopt the best possible kittens.
