CFA Advances the RagaMuffin to Championship! 2-6-11!
Welcome to Ragtime Cats......
RagaMuffins are Huggable, extremely lovable, "teddy-bear" like cats. They are the ideal feline family member.
Our goal is to breed high quality RagaMuffins with great purrsonalities.
Ragtime RagaMuffins is an in home cattery. Our kittens are raised underfoot where they have opportunities to be social and play with other pets.
We are a proud founding member of the RagaMuffin Cat Lovers Society, Inc., and subscribe to a high code of ethics in our breeding program and high standards for our cattery.
Our cats are all registered with the CFA - the Cat Fanciers Association. CFA has the most restrictive breeding practices for RagaMuffins - presently there are no accepted outcrosses allowed in the CFA. If you want to be assured of a "RagaMuffin", do not accept "papers" from any other registry, especially "TICA".
I have a strong commitment to our cats and work hard to promote the breed. I show strongly across the nation. I am the Founding Spokesperson (Feb 2003) and the elected Breed Chair (2003 - 2014/present) for RagaMuffins in CFA. I serve as President of the RagaMuffin Cat Society - a CFA chartered club, and as President of the RagaMuffin Cat Lovers Society - an organization devoted to the RagaMuffin breed. I also serve CFA as an Ambassador, Mentor, Agility Ringmaster and Licensed Master Clerk. Our RagaMuffin "Blueberry" serves CFA as the Iams Ambassador Cat for our breed.
Ragtime Cats has the Top winning RagaMuffins in the Nation, while also preserving the fabulous tempermant within our cats! We are extremely proud to have had the Nations Best RagaMuffin Cat in ACFA - Three Years Straight! We then worked on CFA acceptance of our breed, and became "CFA only." If your looking for show cats - compare your titles - not ALL titles are equal. Many breeders claim titles from extremely small organizations where there was literally no competition for a win. Others claim titles are unimportant - most people can figure why someone would say that, or they would be happy to tell you all about their own titles! Also - in order to OFFICIALLY call a cat a National Winner in ACFA - You must place in the Top 20 in the Nation - there are breeders who claim "IA" (Inter-American) wins to try to deceive you that they have top winning cats. Their "IA Wins" may be as simple as a color placement - which is almost a given with the number of colors in our breed. There are very few true National Winners in ACFA - 10 to be exact in 5 years! 8 of those 10 are with Ragtime Cats. Ragtime Cats has the first and presently only Regional Winner and the first Breed Winner in CFA. We obtained the first "Grand" RagaMuffin in CFA.
We are also proud to be recognized as a leader in the RagaMuffin - our latest credit is to have written the RagaMuffin chapter for the newest book "The CFA Complete Book of Cat Breeds" - released in October 2004. So be sure to check the RagaMuffin section! We have also recently (2013) been consulted concerning the RagaMuffin breed for a new cat book to be released in Europe later this year. Watch for it!
We do not ship cats within the United States. Kittens/cats must either be picked up or we will hand deliver them to you. New federal regulations require that the buyer, seller and kitten be present together. Shipping is available for breeding cats overseas.

Every year from
Member and Chair/Breed Council Secretary of the CFA RagaMuffin Committee/Council.
From our inception in 2003 - present.
RagaMuffins are accepted for Championship in ACFA (American Cat Fanciers Association), CFA (Cat Fanciers Association), CFF (Cat Fanciers Federation), and AACE (American Association of Cat Enthusiasts). RagaMuffins are accepted for Registration in TICA (The International Cat Association). (While RagaMuffins are registered in TICA - there are no actual registration rules for the breed - do not accept papers solely from TICA as proof that the kitten/cat is a RagaMuffin - it could be any other breed registered experimentally as a RagaMuffin)

While Ragtime Cats remains devoted to the RagaMuffin cat - we are also working on requirements for association judging programs. This requires working with cats different from your 'primary' breed, which is the RagaMuffin.
We have worked closely with All Aglitter Persians. Thus we also have a breeding silver & golden female. We will be showing their offspring in CFA. We are extremely proud to work with these beautiful cats and are now proud to be a member of the CFA Breed Council for the Silver & Golden Persian! Another big thanks goes to Diane for the wonderful breeding stock she entrusted to us - whereas we now have our own home-grown "Ragtime cats" CFA Persian Grand!
At this time, we do not plan to breed anymore silver/golden Persians. Our top queens went to Ramayana Persians. Please visit them for your silver/golden dreams.
Silver & Golden Division Persians
This space is dedicated to a wonderful friend and fellow breeder who is VERY deeply missed: Gloria Middleton of Rainbows M&M Cattery - American Shorthairs.
Gloria - we know you are watching over all of us now - and you are dearly missed. You were a blessing to all who knew you and you are missed in our showhalls. I am sad to have never had the pleasure of owning one of your precious babies - but I'm proud to have had the chance to know and love some of them personally. I know "Stoney" is now upon your lap and a happy boy with his mommie. I look forward to the day when we can meet again.
You will never be forgotten here!
