pleasantdolls family

Pleasantdolls Cattery was founded by the Wood family in 2016. I grew up with a passion for animals and taking the best possible care for any animal that I came in contact with. Cats were always my specialty and I had a huge soft spot in my heart. 


Over the course of my life I have owned many different species of animals most of whom were cats and dogs. 2010 is when I first starting hearing more about Ragdolls and over the next 5 years slowly began falling more and more in love with this breed. In 2016 we were so excited and thrilled to start our own Ragdoll cattery when we brought home our King Maverick. Then in July 2016 we welcomed into our home our first queen Malibu. Our beautiful Masquerade came into our hearts in October of 2016. We are still expanding but want to make sure we're able to give as much love and attention to each of our own fur babies as possible so we will remain a small in-home cattery.

We are located in Northeast Saskatchewan and are proud to be able to provide our precious babies to their perfect families all across Canada.

At Pleasantdoll Ragdolls we do not cut corners when it comes to our cats long term health. Our kittens and cats come first, plain and simple. Our Ragdolls have all been tested and found negative for the following DNA genetic diseases: 

  • PKD1 - Polycystic Kidney Disease is a disease in which a large number of fluid filled cysts form in the kidneys. These cysts are present from birth in affected cats. They start off very small, gradually increasing in size until they affect the surrounding normal kidney tissue, causing kidney failure and death.
  • HCM: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common cardiac disease in cats. Affected cats are at risk of sudden cardiac death due to defects that produce increased left ventricular heart muscle thickness. In Ragdolls, the condition is inherited due to breed specific mutations in the cardiac myosin binding protein C gene (MYBPC3). They will also pass this defective gene on to their offspring.
  • Feline Leukemia - FeLV adversely affects a cat's body in many ways. It is the most common cause of cancerin cats, may cause various blood disorders, and may lead to a state of immune deficiency that hinders a cat's ability to protect itself against other infections. Because of this, common bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and fungi that usually do not affect healthy cats can cause severe illness in FeLV-infected cats. These secondary infections are responsible for many of the diseases associated with FeLV.
  • Feline AIDS - feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) attacks the immune system, leaving the cat vulnerable to many other infections. Although cats infected with FIV may appear normal for years, they eventually suffer from this immune deficiency, which allows normally harmless bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and fungi found in the everyday environment to potentially cause severe illnesses. The median survival time for a cat diagnosed with FIV is approximately five years.
  • All of our cats and kittens are up to date on shots, and free of parasites.


Included in the cost of your kitten, you will not only receive a healthy, well-socialized, beautiful kitten, you will also receive the following:

  • A signed contract for both the buyer and ourselves
  • First and second round of shots, administered by a licensed veterinarian.
  • De-worming at 6, 8, and 12 weeks of age
  • A TICA registration. A three-generation laminated pedigree is also offered for an additional charge of $50
  • Once you have chosen your kitten, you will receive weekly photos and updates so you can follow along with your new baby's progress and growth.
  • Updated letter (email) sent home to every family just before your baby goes home.
  • Our awesome Kitten Care Package! 
  • Most importantly, we socialize, socialize, socialize our kittens. We believe in giving you not just a pet, we want to give you a new member of your family.

At Pleasantdolls, we get many requests from new parents for a list of things your baby needs to get them started off on the right paw.

Here is a "Wish List" to help get you started:

1. Cat carrier 

If your baby is flying to you they will be flying in their carrier that will be included in the flight package.

If you are picking up your cat/kitten please have a carrier of your choice along. Keep in mind that ragdolls are a large breed as a rule. Get a good carrier that should last the life of your baby, keeping in mind...some of our babies can grow to be VERY LARGE cats.

2. Tooth brush and kitty tooth paste

This will save you money and your baby's smile. A child's soft bristle tooth brush works well. Most cats like chicken flavored toothpaste. Never use human tooth paste on your baby.

3. Nail trimmers

Start them young and treat as you go. We will be more than happy to show you how to trim your kitty's nails.

4. Toys!

Ragdolls are like a puppies....if you don't give them toys, they will take your stuff. Your stuff will become their stuff....buy the toys.

Also, please don't wrestle with your kitty. Wrestling with them/using your hands as toys will teach them to associate you as being a toy, and this becomes much less cute as they get older. 

Trust us....buy the toys.

5. Cat tree

Place your cat tree in or near a window. For even more fun, please buy a bird feeder and feed the birds outside of said window. This will entertain your fur babies for hours and help the birds too, especially during the winter months when food is difficult for our feathered friends to find.

6. Brush and comb 

Most our cats and kittens love to get brushed, it feels good and helps decrease shedding hair around your house.

7. Toys .... Lots of toys .... Can't have too many toys 

(Please see #4)

10. Dry, wet food and water

Kitten food, of course. We recommend giving kitten food until your baby is 18 months old. We also recommend both dry and wet (canned). Mixing some wet food into their diet as a yummy treat as well as a source of extra moisture.

By nature, cats (all cats...lions, alley cats and tigers too!) do not drink enough water. The number one killer of cats is kidney failure. So make sure your cat/kitten always has access to lots of fresh, clean water.

9. Did we mention toys ? 

"Da Bird"

Kittens love this toy. In fact, kittens love anything that dangles from a string. However, a word of warning...any string toys should be used under adult supervision to avoid accidental strangulation. Also, the plastic ring with the little ball is another favorite toy. Laser toys are fun and a great way for your baby to get exercise. Any toys that scream or chirp are always a good choice...kittens love grass hoppers than chirp, mice that squeak, etc.

8. Dishes

Glass or metal please, no plastic dishes. Plastic dishes will give your baby chin acne.

11. Radio or TV

Please, if you're gone for the day and your baby is alone, leave the TV or radio on for them. This breed is very intelligent and will need something to do.

12. Litter Boxes

One and a half boxes per kitty, minimum. In other words 3 litter boxes for 2 cats etc...

Also, a cat litter scoop and scoopable cat litter. There are a variety of litter types. You may want to consider some alternatives to clay such as corn husk, walnut shell etc...
