About Us
and Our Kitties


I am a small in home cattery, located in Illinois. While searching for a kitten, for my
granddaughter's birthday, I discovered the RagaMuffin. A lucky accident for me,
and love at first sight. That is the reason I chose Serendipity for my cattery name.
The dictionary definition of Serendipity is: Luck in discovering something you're NOT looking for.
Unfortunately the name was taken, I was crushed. With the addition of an extra "P" I was allowed to
use the name. When we gained CFA registry, years later, CFA would not allow me to use Serendippity,
even with the extra "P". GentlePurrs, a fitting name, was then chosen as my CFA cattery name.

RagaMuffin Kitten

All of my kittens are raised with us in our home, on our laps, and in our beds.
Each of our kittens receives individual attention and handling from the time
they are born so that they are well socialized for their new adoptive families.
As a responsible breeder, my first concern is the health, happiness, and well-being of
each of my kittens. I am very careful to place them in caring, capable homes.

RagaMuffin Kittens
If you are considering purchasing a kitten please remember
RagaMuffin ownership should be considered a lifelong commitment.
If you do not feel you are able to make a total comittment at this time,
please delay purchasing your kitten until you feel you are ready.
Ragamuffins give and expect to receive a great deal of attention and
affection. The beauty, charm and intelligence of the breed justifies the
work and the expense of caregiving. It is, however, a responsibility
that not everyone can - or should - take on.

We hope you enjoy your visit here at Serendippity and that you come
back soon and often. We love sharing my precious little four legged family
with others. We delight in the little antics of these beautiful and
precious RagaMuffins. Be sure to check out our nursery page before you
leave for any available kittens and updates on future litters.

I want only the best homes for my kittens and will screen potential buyers accordingly. I encourage prospective buyers to ask questions of me as well. I am a selective breeder producing only a few litters each year, kitten availability is limited. Kittens are sold on a first come, first serve basis. Kitten adoption fee is $1850. A $500 deposit is required to hold your kitten. Kittens are not reserved until deposit is received. Deposit are deducted from the adoption fee. Deposit is non-refundable after your kitten is born and accepted by you. Non-refunded deposits will be applied toward a future kitten.

Please email me your color/pattern preferences and desired sex along with a little information about your life-style. This way I can make sure the personality of the kitten, chosen by you, is suited for YOU. I would not want to place a shy, reserved kitten in a household of small children. This would not be good for either you or the kitten. I will be glad to keep you updated regularly with photos of his/her progress as you wait.

Kittens come with a written two year health guarantee against genetic disorders. Kittens will have all age appropriate vaccines, wormed, microchip, and will be spayed or neutered. NO EXCEPTIONS! This helps me do my part against the ever growing pet overpopulation problem and also helps make the transition from my home to your easier on the kitten. All breeders have been tested for HCM and PKD and tested negative. Copies of all testing available. Kittens are ready for their forever homes between 14 and 16 weeks. Depending entirely on the development of the kitten. To understand why we wait so long see the breedlist below. I have a strict NO DE-CLAW POLICY in my contract. I feel this is a very inhumane, mutilating surgery for cats. Please check the site listed below when considering this surgery.

All cats and kittens are free fed Life's Abundance dry kibble. Please check link below. I highly recommend kittens be feed wet food daily along with any dry kibble. Cats need extra moisture in their diet, especially males. Fountains are also very useful as well.
