Our Shipping Procedure
If you are interested in any of our Ragdoll on our website and live too far to drive down and pick up the Kitten in person, then we can make the arrangements for you to have your cat on a next or same day delivery. The cat will be shipped to the closest airport near you or hand delivered to your home. Delivery prices are per county, region. In most cases the cat will arrive within 4-8 hours within the US and 72 hours max international delivery from the departure time. However, sometimes delays do occur due to weather or cat checking, so check the flight with the shipping company before you leave your home to go to the airport.
General airline Requirements
1. The cat must be at least 9 weeks 4 days old
2. Must be accompanied with a veterinarian Health/Acclimation Certificate

Safe and Comfortable Shipping process
Kittens aren’t vases or art supplies, so when you hear that he or she can be shipped to you, your first reaction is probably shock. Before you panic, get that picture of cardboard boxes and foam peanuts out of your mind! Shipping Kittens is usually quite safe and any airlines or trucking companies that take live animals have procedures in place to be sure they arrive in good health.
Airlines will either ship Kittens in the cargo compartment which sounds a bit callous and scary, but is actually fairly safe and comfortable for the Kitten, especially if there is no need for a layover or cargo transfer or the Kitten to be stowed under the passenger’s seat in lieu of carry on luggage. This is probably the safest mode of air travel.
We alway give all our Kittens a Bordetella vaccine prior to shipping to avoid the chances of other Kittens or pets infecting them.
