The Ragmeister is a fantastic cattery. We adopted a Ragdoll from Gary last year. We live in Idaho and Gary shipped this little tiny kitten to us. Charley arrived on time at our airport. We promptly took him to our veterinarian who gave him a complete physical and found him very healthy. It is also good to know that Charley’s health has been guaranteed for 3 years. Charley is a wonderful, spirited, healthy and inquisitive boy. I cannot imagine a sweeter breed of cat highly enough. My experience with Gary was top-notch and would be happy to recommend him to my friends.

We purchased our Ragdoll, Dallas in December of 2009 and had the most wonderful experience. We found Gary because of a close family friend had purchased their Ragdoll, Jackson a few years prior. Upon deciding we wanted a Ragdoll, we contacted Gary and went to “meet” our new family member the day after Thanksgiving! We fell in love, but were going on vacation in early December & Gary said he’d hold on to Dallas for us until we returned. Upon returning we picked Dallas up the next day and took him home. We’ve had absolutely NO ISSUES (health or personality) with Dallas since we purchased him and he blossomed into the best cat ever. We would bring him to bed with us every night and he would stay tucked under the covers or sleep over my head on my pillow. We would actually travel with him frequently and he made the trek with us from San Diego to Rhode Island in the backseat of our car and he just loves to go! We now adopted a kitten from a shelter back in October and they are the best of friends… Dallas and Lola Bug chase one another, snuggle, and wrestle! They even play “Treat Patrol” where they fetch treats down the hall… I have to say, he’s most certainly my little Baby! Six months ago I had a baby, and whenever I feed her, Dallas hops on the couch and lays in my lap while I’m feeding the baby. He lays there while she holds his tail while eating her bottle – he’s so good with Sophia and never experienced “the jealousy issue”. We would not hesitate to purchase another cat from Gary. If you should have any questions about using Gary as a breeder for your Ragdoll – please feel free to contact me at angela.burns@live.com.

We have now had two cats from Ragmeister. The breeder is fabulous. Our first cat, Oscar lived 14 wonderful years. We were shattered when he passed away. Our new kitty, Ivan, is a terrorist! He chases our two dogs, jumps around playfully and gives us so many smiles I cannot count them all. Ivan came to us totally socialized, and joined our dogs without a hitch. He travels with us all over in our RV and loves the ride. He is gorgeous to look at, but more importantly, he is gorgeous in his spirit. He is spicy, spunky, and a real humorist. We love him, and so do our two dogs, a dachshund and a black lab. I couldn’t recommend a breeder more highly!!

Our gorgeous girl!

I purchased the most beautiful Lilac Ragdoll from Gary Strobel in May 2011. I had been talking to Gary for over six months before the purchase because I was so nervous about the kitten flying from San Diego to New Orleans. He assured me that the kitten would be fine. Well, he is fine and 100% purrfect. I named him Zephyr. He is the BEST present I have ever bought myself. I kind of felt guilty about “buying” a cat instead of adopting from the Humane Society but that guilt quickly went away as soon as I picked him up from the airport. The joy this kitten has already given me is priceless. He is the most beautiful cat I’ve ever seen in my life. He is 6 months old now and already 9 pounds so he’s going to be big. He also loves water and jumps in the tub every day. He just loves bath time. Thank you Gary for the most beautiful baby in the world. I look forward to going home every day to see my new addition. He is a blessing and has definitely enhanced my life. I had a wonderful experience with Ragmeister Ragdolls and I love the book that Gary Strobel wrote. It was extremely helpful. Thanks for everything Gary. I want another Ragdoll already but I’m going to let Zephyr be an only child for a while.

My husband and I purchased a Ragdoll kitten from Ragmeister Ragdolls in September of 2011 and we couldn’t be more thrilled! BRAVO is a healthy, wonderfully friendly Seal Mitten Ragdoll kitten who kisses us “good morning”, plays energetically during the day, and then sleeps the night through next to our heads, often purring contentedly. He is amazingly social and possesses a curiosity that brightens our day. Over our 59 years of living, we’ve owned many wonderful pets from sheepdogs and iguanas to cats and cockatoos, but we’ve never experienced anything like a Ragdoll kitten. We absolutely loved working with Gary Strobel at Ragmeister Ragdolls. A breeder of Ragdolls since 1991, he provides a loving environment for all the kittens and has exceptional knowledge about this lovable breed. He has been very generously supportive and no question has ever gone unanswered. It is obvious from the time you begin talking to him that the Ragdoll cats and kittens are truly treasured – he is not just a “breeder” but passionate about the Ragdolls. Plus all of his Ragdoll kittens come with a 100% health guarantee. We highly recommend Ragmeister Ragdolls to anyone seeking a professional, caring, experienced breeder.

I was fortunate to find Ragmeister’s website about a year and a half ago. I researched this breeder and compared what he offered to other breeders located closer to my home. I was impressed with his three-year genetic health guarantee; as someone new to purchasing an animal from a breeder I had lots of questions and concerns, which he patiently answered and addressed. I found this breeder to be very kind and helpful to a “newbie”, and once I found two beautiful flamepoint female kittens I just had to have, he walked me through the process of adopting my fur-people. He spent quite a bit of time explaining how to care for them and by the time they were ready to be picked up I was confident I was walking away with wonderfully healthy kittens. I have had absolutely no problems with my kittens who are now eight months old. They are growing into their beautiful coats and are extraordinarily sweet-tempered. I’m grateful to Gary for the care he gave my girls while they were waiting for their forever-home, and so glad I found him! I highly recommend Ragmeister to anyone interested in adopting Ragdolls – they are raised in a healthy home environment with great care. I would definitely go to him in the future if I ever want to expand my little family.

Jojo the Flamepoint Radoll

Posted by on Jan 16, 2012 in Blog, Correspondence, Reviews | 0 comments

Hi Gary,

This is the Flamepoint we got from you earlier this year. He has worked himself into the family effortlessly. Every visitor to our house wants to take him home. My daughter bought a (full) brother of his from a subsequent litter from you, and my granddaughter absolutely loves him. Jojo loves water, plays with our small terriers and other cats, and has a personality that will not quit. Naturally, he has picked up a few nicknames along the way: most everybody calls him Flop.
