Q: How is a Kitten Shipped?

A: Ship by Airlines

Shipping is available to all US destinations. Shipping charges vary depending upon location. Shipping costs include airfare, the kitten’s shipping crate (pet taxi), vet health certificate, and a kitten care packet. The packet includes a bag of the kitten food that he/she is accustomed to and kitten care information. Delivery is typically counter to counter service. kittens will travel in a pressurized compartment that’s temperature controlled. The cost of shipping by airlines is $150.00 – $420.00 depending on destination and airlines.

B: Ship by Specialized Ground Service

You also have the option of having your kitten delivered by van right to your doorstep using a Pet Transport service that delivers to all destinations in the continental US. The cost for this service varies for distance and location. This is the most expensive of the two ways to get your kitten delivered.

Q: Is shipping really safe for the Kitten?

A: Shipping a Kitten by itself to a new location always sounds cruel and embarrassing, but actually it is not especially with based American airlines. With my many years of shipping experience, I know for a fact that all of the kittens are well taken care of. So if you stop and think about it, the airlines are not going to mistreat the kitten(s) for fear of lawsuit and customer dissatisfaction. I tape kitten(s) food and feeding instructions to the top of the crate and put frozen water in the crate, so it will gradually thaw out for the kitten(s) and the kittens are offered food along the ride. The average flight is approximately 3 to 5 hours. I always ask about any delays or layovers and know the exact times and departures of the flights, so I know where the kitten is and am able to give you the information as well. The kitten will arrive the same day as it is sent usually a few hours. I have a big fluffy bed of shredded newspapers in the crate for the kitten(s) to nestle in and usually a pig’s ear chew (they love them), and a toy or sock with my scent on it to help the kitten feel secure

Q: Can I travel to pick up my Kitten?

You are always welcome to travel over to pick up your Kitten after purchase, and usually traveling with your Kitten in most Airlines requires no additional fee for flying with a kitten apart from a personal flight fee. Nevertheless, Some Airlines demand an extra fee anyway.

Q: I just pick up my Kitten from the Airport. Does she need a Vaccine?

A. Do not give your new kitten any vaccines within the first 14 days of arrival. Your new kitten is all up to date on shots before living in our home and will not need a vaccine for at least weeks. Many Vets will attempt to issue a vaccine so that they can make additional money. Do not get any vaccine on your first Vet visit as the kitten will need time to adjust and you do not need any additional stress on him or her !!!

* Nevertheless, when you pick up your kitten, it is necessary to go for a Vet check-in not less than 48 hours after you received your kitten for a general check-up and in case of any health problems, we will be responsible for either giving you a new kitten or refund your payment if no other kitten is available at the moment.

The Ragdoll cat or Ragdoll are not traumatized by shipping so please don’t be concerned. I have never had a Ragdoll cat or Ragdoll kitten injured by the shipping process.

Upon arrival plan to open a can of food as they will be very hungry. If you have a long drive home bring a litter box in the car and put them in it. They will arrive in regulatory crate which will make the Ragdoll kittens or ragdoll games very don’t let your Ragdoll kittens for sale or Ragdoll kitten for adoption stay hungry upon arrival.

Before shipping the Ragdoll kitten will see the vet for a health certificate. This will expire in 30 days so they will need to be shipped in this time frame. As soon as I have their schedule and reservation I will give you this information. You can track the Ragdoll kitten online using the airway bill number.

The shipping fee is currently $250 and will be more if the kitten has to go in a larger crate. The base fee of $300 is subject to change according to airline fees. The airfare by itself is $250 for the smallest crate with American Airlines. The extra expenses included in my fee are Health Certificate, gas for 3 hours driving to delivery company/airport, crate, and parking.

If your kitten encounters delays or canceled flights the personnel are trained in caring for animals and boarding them. They also have a vet on staff at all times. Delivery agency may call you with updates. You are welcome to visit your kitten after six weeks of age by appointment. The kittens go home between 10-12 weeks of age and you are welcome to pick them up at my home or for a fee we are willing to deliver. Example Delivery fees are: $ 300, $ 200, $250.
