How Much Do Ragamuffin Cats Cost?

Ragamuffin cats have unique features from ordinary cats, and don’t make the mistake most people make and confuse it for the Ragdoll; these are two different breeders.  They have a shorter nose that is scooped, a rounded skull, and most are “cubby” looking.  Most of them look sweet because of their walnut-shaped eyes.  This is one of the main reasons why these cats are expensive.  Vet Street says the breed was more than likely created by crossing the Turkish Angora, Persians and Birmans.

  1. Johnny Lueras (Westminster,  CO) paid $0 and said:

    I got my kitten for free, my friends got her for me, and we got her free because she was a rescue kitten.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  2. Emily Wilson paid $10 and said:

    I got my ragamuffin, kiwi, for ten dollars because he was on the death list. He was scheduled to be put to sleep ten minutes before I got him, because no one wanted him. He is the absolute best cat ever! Ragmuffins usually go for 600-1,500 dollars or more. I got a bargain!

    Was it worth it? Yes

  3. Lynda (several,  several) paid $1200-1700 and said:

    This article is inaccurate. The sweet, cherub look comes from the fluffy whisker pads. The roundness of everything else helps add to the sweetness. I got both of mine from silverliningragamuffins and they were well worth it. We visited her home several times to meet them before they were ready to come home. We were always warmly welcomed and their house was nice and the kids were great. I really loved having a breeder with young children. The kittens were already prepared to be around my 3 year old granddaughter. I wouldn’t change a thing and if we decide to get more I will call her up in a heartbeat. It’s a military family, but I don’t care if they move halfway around the world I will go back.

  4. suzie (Phoenix,  Arizona) paid $2000 and said:

    my Ragamuffin kitten came with a 2yr guarantee, she had her shots and had been given a clean bill of health by a highly reputable veterinarian. She was socialized and adjusted to our home in a matter of a day.She is so sweet we fell in love at first site. We received pictures and phone calls from the breeder the entire time while we waited to pic her up.we bought from Broadway Darlings Ragamuffins in Phoenix and already plan to get a second one at Christmas. Best kitty ever and worth more than the 2000 we paid.

  5. Sandy (Hartford,  Connecticut) paid $900 and said:

    I don’t know what Lynda is talking about, but this article is pretty spot on. If you look hard enough, I was able to find my ragamuffin for my mom for about $900. This came from a reputable breeder. Be aware of those who are charging more than $1,500. Usually, these are people who are looking to capitalize on the breed and charge way more than they are worth.

    My tip is to make sure you search a few hundred miles outside of your home and make the road trip if you can save a few hundred.
