We are a husband and wife team (Tony & Kim), living the dream in being able to raise and work with these adorable and lovable cats. We are also working professionals by day with Tony serving active-duty in the armed forces, and Kim who holds a law degree working in the legal profession. Together, we pursued our interests in the cat fancy world, and KimuraDolls was created. We are dual registered with The International Cat Association "TICA" & the Cat Fanciers' Association "CFA." We ♥ the Ragdoll breed and we strive to promote and maintain the Ragdoll breed standards.
Please remember: We are not commercial breeders. We do not have "business hours." We do not have staff on hand. We do not have a "facility" for you to see or visit. Our home is not a pet shop to window shop for a kitten. Our cats and kittens are raised in our home with us and our pet German Shepherds as part of our family.
We strive to breed ethically, responsibly, and with integrity. This means we breed to improve, sustain, maintain, and preserve the Ragdoll breed by producing high quality Ragdolls, working with established registry breed standards, and working with champion bloodlines with fellow breeders who have dedicated years to developing superior bloodlines.
Each one of our breeding cats is genetically tested and screened for genetic disorders and diseases. Our breeding cats and kittens receive routine preventative healthcare from a licensed veterinarian.
Hana has been our family pet since she was 8 weeks old. She is a 9 year old purebred German Shepherd Dog. She was born in 2011 in California and played a significant role with a local German Shepherd rescue organization providing socializing and pack skills to other rescue German Shepherd Dogs during our two-year volunteer commitment to the rescue.
Jax has been our family pet since he was 8 weeks old. He is a 6.5 year old pedigreed purebred dark sable German Shepherd Dog from Czech working lines. He was born in 2014 in Maine, and while his parents earned their Schutzhund IPO3 titles, Jax went on to personal protection dog training. He takes his job of protecting our home very seriously while simultaneously being the most affectionate cuddler of the entire furry bunch.
We started our Ragdoll breeding program under the cattery name "RusticKittens Ragdolls." Over the years, we became victim to copying and fraudulent misrepresentation of our cattery name. Additionally, there are now 3 TICA registered Ragdoll cattery names with "Rustic" in the name. To avoid confusion and distinguish our unique and respectful breeding program that we have worked hard to develop, we have changed our cattery name to KIMURADOLLS and have taken steps to purchase up any variations of our cattery name, including domains. At the time of changing, we are the ONLY "Kimura" ragdoll breeder. We have had a huge problem with others copying us, and it is frustrating because we take the time and effort in our creative design processes. If you see any other KIMURA breeding program, especially a KIMURA ragdoll breeding program, it is probably a scammer or someone copying us. We are the original KIMURA ragdoll breeders. We own "KimuraDolls," "KimuraRags" and "KimuraRagdolls" -- but we operate only under "KimuraDolls." The registration and claim to the other two variations is solely to prevent someone else in registering under the likeness of our name.
