About Us

Who are you?


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.




Where are you located?


We are currently located in the Hampton Roads area of Southeastern Virginia (Chesapeake, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, etc.), about 20 minutes from the North Carolina border. We will be in this area until Spring 2023 at which point we will be relocated to a new area again. Prior to this, we were in the Northeast Ohio area from 2017-2020.




Can I come to your house to see your cats and kittens?


We're thrilled that you want to come visit us and our cats and home. But please keep in mind, we are home based breeders who raise our cats and kittens in our home. It would be very disruptive if people were coming in and out of our home just to look around. While it's not an absolute prohibited rule as we have allowed selected families to come over before reserving, the answer will almost always be 'no' when a complete stranger just randomnly sends us a message and asks if they can come over our home to see / inspect our home and all of our cats and kittens before they reserve a kitten. We are not going to use the COVID-19 pandemic excuse as to why you can't come over to our house, but we will tell you that we are not commercial breeders, we do not have "business hours," and 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. The one exception is, on pick-up day, you and your family may come over to our home to meet us, our cats, and pick up your kitten. However, we do understand the importance of you wanting to make sure you aren't working with an online scammer or supporting a kitten mill and making sure you are working with a reputable breeder. We're very active on social media, and we encourage you to visit our Facebook / Instagram / TikTok profiles as we have shared many photos and videos for all to see.




Are you a registered breeder?


Yes, we are dual registered with The International Cat Association ("TICA") as well as the Cat Fanciers' Associate (CFA). You can search for our registered cattery in the TICA database by searching for "KIMURADOLLS" in the search bar: https://tica.org/owners-breeders/catteries/registered-catteries You can search for our registered cattery in the CFA cattery name index by clicking on "K" and scrolling down until you see our cattery KIMURADOLLS: https://cfa.org/cattery-name-index/ Note: We own KimuraDolls, KimuraRags, and KimuraRagdolls but operate only under the name KimuraDolls. The other variations were registered to prevent copycats.





Breeding Program

How are your kittens raised?


We handraise our kittens from birth. When momma cats are in labor, we stay by her side throughout the entire process, assisting when needed, especially if mom needs a break, so we may help her clean kittens and keep her birthing area clean. Our kittens are hand-handled from birth until they go home with you. As newborns, we weigh them twice a day to ensure they are gaining weight appropriately. This helps us to stay on top of their health and make sure they are healthy and strong. Sometimes we may have to supplement feed kittens, in which case they are handfed. We begin 'hanging out' with our kittens around 4 weeks, right around the time they are beginning to move around on their own with curiosity. At 4-5 weeks, they begin climbing out of the nursing boxes, and between 5-6 weeks, they are climbing all over us, curious with our toes, fingers, shirts, hair, etc. We expose our kittens to daily household routines such as loud vacuuming, mopping, cooking, watching TV, as well as get them used to car rides back-and-forth to/from the vet. We bathe our kittens at 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 10 weeks, and 12 weeks. We drive them to our vet at 8 weeks, 10.5 weeks, and 12 weeks. And they usually meet our dogs around 8 weeks of age after they have received their first FVRCP vaccine.




At what age do your Ragdoll kittens leave you?


Our Ragdoll kittens will be available to go home with their new families between 12-14 weeks, depending on assessment. The idea of waiting until the kitten is 3 months is daunting on families who may be impatient and are struggling with the excitement of adding a new furry member into their family household (we know). But this age requirement is not only industry standard, it is in the best interest of the kitten. During the first 3 months of their lives, they are still developing emotionally, mentally, and physically. By waiting until they are ready to leave the nest, you are avoiding any potential problems that typically associate with an early separated kitten. But rest assured, we will do our best to take lots of pictures and videos so you can still be a part of their growing lives while you wait!




Will I receive my kitten unaltered (whole) or altered (spayed/neutered)?


We have a strict policy on practicing early spay / neuter on our Ragdolls before they go home to their new families. This means that your Ragdoll will have already been spayed / neutered by a licensed veterinarian, prior to coming home with you. We not only want to prevent irresponsible breeding, but we also want to make sure that your kitten comes home and is ready to come home and be a kitten without the burden of you having to take time off of work / school / etc. for the kitten's spay / neuter procedure and healing time. If you are concerned about early spay / neuter, I encourage you to read this article (http://cfa.org/Owners/CatCare/SpayNeuter/EarlySpayNeuter.aspx) about a study done on early spay / neuter. Early spay / neuter has no negative effects on the kitten's development.

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.




Where are you located?


We are currently located in the Hampton Roads area of Southeastern Virginia (Chesapeake, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, etc.), about 20 minutes from the North Carolina border.

Can I come to your house to see your cats and kittens?


We're thrilled that you want to come visit us and our cats and home. But please keep in mind, we are home based breeders who raise our cats and kittens in our home. It would be very disruptive if people were coming in and out of our home just to look around. While it's not an absolute prohibited rule as we have allowed selected families to come over before reserving, the answer will almost always be 'no' when a complete stranger just randomnly sends us a message and asks if they can come over our home to see / inspect our home and all of our cats and kittens before they reserve a kitten. We are not going to use the COVID-19 pandemic excuse as to why you can't come over to our house, but we will tell you that we are not commercial breeders, we do not have "business hours," and 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. The one exception is, on pick-up day, you and your family may come over to our home to meet us, our cats, and pick up your kitten. However, we do understand the importance of you wanting to make sure you aren't working with an online scammer or supporting a kitten mill and making sure you are working with a reputable breeder. We're very active on social media, and we encourage you to visit our Facebook / Instagram / TikTok profiles as we have shared many photos and videos for all to see.
