Watch this before buying a kitten!
Choosing a kitten in 10 steps (what you need to know when shopping)
So, you have decided to get serious about buying a purebred kitten and want to know how it should be done. Below I will give a few key points that must be taken into account so that the purchase does not cause disappointment.
Pick and buy a kitten personally. The kitten should be chosen by the future owner himself, or owners, if the family consists of several people. Remember that you are choosing not only a kitten, but also a breeder to whom you will have to communicate after purchase for advice. Before going to the bridegroom, put on non-marking clothes to which wool does not adhere well. you go to a house where cats live, you will sit there and take them in your arms. Do not use any perfumes, cats hate strong strong smells, so they will avoid communication with you and you will not be able to communicate with them properly.
Buy a kitten from home. only in this case you will see what exactly you are taking. You can look after the kitten at the show, but the final decision should be made only after observing the kitten in a calm home environment.
Outwardly, the kitten must be absolutely healthy. Refuse to buy, if the kitten is carried out in your hands for five minutes in the semi-dark hallway, the Breeder must show how the kitten plays and moves around the room, watch him for half an hour. this time is enough to see if the kitten is something is wrong.
The kitten must be at least 3 months old. Physical development of the kitten and the full course of primary vaccinations is completed by three months, but not earlier. Kittens are younger, under-vaccinated, you cannot buy, but you can reserve by making a prepayment. The deposit is usually 1 / 5-1 / 3 of the amount and a written agreement must be drawn up for it or a receipt for receipt of money must be issued.
The kitten must not only be vaccinated and revaccinated, but also have a veterinary passport with all the vaccinations affixed.If a kitten is bought in another city / country, then, in addition to the polyvalent antiviral vaccination, he must also have rabies, certified in a state veterinary clinic, affixed no later than a month before departure, as well as a certificate for removal from the veterinary clinic, taken on the eve of departure.
The Breeder must have documents confirming the seriousness of his activity. a certificate of registration of the cattery in a serious felinological system, pedigrees for the parents of kittens and certificates of obtaining titles by them, the results of animal examinations for viral and genetic diseases.
The kitten must have a document of origin. This can be a metric by which you can get a pedigree or a ready-made pedigree, depending on the conditions on which the kitten is bought. For example, obtaining a pedigree is possible in exchange for a metric after neutering an animal sold as a pet.
All conditions of purchase must be supported by a written agreement in 2 copies, one remains for the breeder, the other you receive. A written agreement is necessary to settle the relationship between the breeder and the new owner of the kitten, because conditions can be forgotten or misunderstood when explained verbally. In case of possible problems, it is the written agreement that will serve as a reason for the proceedings, but not what was said orally.
The kitten should be given a dowry. food and filler, to which the kitten is accustomed at home, calculated for several days, as well as detailed recommendations on the procedure for feeding and keeping the kitten in the new home. This is very important so that the stress of the move does not overlap with the stress of changing food and toilet.
Ask the breeder for a recommendation of a good veterinarian Unfortunately, there are very few good veterinarians who know the specific physiology of cats. Veterinary academies teach how to treat agricultural animals, not pets, so only the presence of positive practical experience in treating cats with a veterinarian can serve as a reason for contacting him for advice.
What you need to know about the breed
Ragdoll (English Ragdoll. rag doll). a breed of semi-long-haired cats, bred in the 60s of the last century in the United States. Ragdolls got their unusual name because of a gene mutation, as a result of which their muscle tone is reduced. As a result, they are extremely flexible and soft to the touch, but they should be handled with care: unlike other cats, they are not able to land on their paws, and even falling off the couch is fraught with serious injuries for them. Due to their physical characteristics, ragdolls are never aggressive, on the contrary, the owners, on whom they completely depend, are for them the center of the universe, and it is hardly possible to find anywhere more docile and loyal cats.
Ragdolls require constant care, but at the same time they are not capricious and very phlegmatic. They get along well with other animals and, if they show aggression towards them, they simply leave and do not get involved in a fight.
Representatives of this breed prefer to communicate with people. They have high intelligence, quickly become accustomed to the tray and perfectly understand human speech.
How to choose a real ragdoll
When choosing Ragdoll kittens, it is extremely important to remember that they are all born completely white, and the true color of the cat will appear only at the age of two. In newborns, the eyes open only after two weeks, the sucking period also lasts quite a long time, and it is not worth taking babies away from cats prematurely.
Very often, a representative of ragdolls is passed off as their close relative. a Burmese cat. The reason for this is the similar color with dark markings. Meanwhile, the ragdoll standard is quite strict: its distinctive features, along with a peaceful character, are rich blue wide-set eyes, a wedge-shaped muzzle with chubby cheeks and a middle chin, rounded ears (sometimes with tassels), a long muscular body with a long, slightly pointed tail. Despite some stockiness and muscularity, muscle tone in these cats is always reduced. By and large, to distinguish a real ragdoll, you just need to pick it up.
There are only three color options: color-point (standard), mitted (with white “socks”, chin and chest) and bicolor (two-tone). Each of the colors can be one of four varieties: “sio”, blue, purple or chocolate.

Bulletin boards in the world network are full of advertisements for the sale of pedigree kittens. In every more or less large city there are hundreds of such proposals. This is especially true for the most “fashionable”, common, favorite cat breeds. How not to get confused in this variety and choose a kitten without being deceived in its quality and health and buying it for its real value? Let’s try to figure out what to pay special attention to when studying the text of the ads. The first thing to pay attention to is the age of the child. If the kitten on sale was born less than 2 months ago, and it is already being sold, and not reserved in order to give it away at a decent age, then it is better not to contact such sellers at all. No self-respecting breeder will give a kitten under 2 months old to a new home! Until this age, the child should live at home, with a mother cat, learn from her what can and cannot be done in the house, finally switch to adult food, socialize and learn to communicate with people. Kittens that are early separated from their mother and littermates quite often have various deviations in behavior, they are less accustomed to the tray and scratching posts, and their games with a person can be too intrusive and aggressive. In addition, the age of 1.5-2.5 months is the most dangerous for the beginning of an independent life for a kitten, since this is the so-called period of the “immune hole”, when the kitten’s maternal immunity is no longer sufficient, and its own is still practically not working in the kitten; a baby, barely finding himself in a new house, can simply die from a viral infection In other words, only a person who obviously does not care (to put it mildly) about this kitten, his health, life in a new house and relationship with new owners. No sane person will sign up for such a purchase, knowing what it threatens him.
If you are looking for a truly thoroughbred animal, and not a mestizo of unknown origin, remotely resembling what breed is unknown, then when choosing a kitten, you should pay attention to the child’s pedigree. This is the only document that guarantees that your chosen kitten is really a British Shorthair or Abyssinian, and not a purebred “nobleman”, vaguely similar to such a color and in general has nothing to do with the declared breed. Actually, both mestizo and “noblemen” are no less sweet, smart and loved than purebred animals, but in their case the question arises whether it is worth paying tangible money for a kitten with an unknown origin, when they are often given into good hands for free
Another important point is vaccinations. In fact, vaccinating a kitten is an excellent characteristic for its breeder. Self-respecting catteries and breeders generally sell kittens only fully vaccinated and quarantined after vaccinations (immunity is not formed in the first half hour after the vaccine injection, but within about 2 weeks after it, and during this period the kitten should remain healthy and avoid stress) If the kitten is given to the unvaccinated, the new owner should think about whether he is ready to risk the health and life of a barely bought baby. After all, moving to a new home is a tremendous stress for the baby, and against the background of such stress, little kittens fall ill with both infectious and non-infectious diseases much faster and easier However, everything is not as simple as we would like. Vaccination schedules for different manufacturers of vaccines have a lot in common, especially the recommended age of kittens. A kitten under the age of eleven weeks (2.5 months) cannot be fully vaccinated, no matter what songs its seller sings to you! An “under-vaccinated” kitten is not protected from infections, and vaccines against dermatophytosis (Vakderm, Microderm, Polivak) have nothing to do with viral infections, and their effectiveness in relation to fungal skin diseases is highly questionable. If the health of your future little pet is dear to you, pay maximum attention to the issue of its vaccination.
You should also listen carefully to the words of the breeder about the breeding prospects of a kitten sold with the right to breed. A kitten with the right to breeding is always more expensive than a kitten “on a pillow”, so many not very conscientious breeders tend to sell literally everything that moves for breeding. The owners give fabulous money for the kitten, and after a few months they come to the exhibition, where they listen with surprise and horror as the expert tries to gently explain to them that their pet is only remotely similar to its breed, and such an animal simply cannot be breeding Any loud The breeder’s statements regarding the prospects of his kitten must be documented! If the breeder shouts that the kitten being sold is a show class, but the kitten has never been at any exhibition and has no evaluators, awards and nominations, then all the statements of this breeder are empty boasting, and this child, at best, is not bad. But is it worth the money that the breeder wants to get for it is, again, a big question.
Finally, when buying a kitten, you should always pay attention to the conditions in which it grew up with previous owners. And here it doesn’t matter whether you decide to have a thoroughbred animal, a cute mestizo, or take a nice “nobleman” in good hands. Poor nutrition in the first months of life can leave its negative imprint on the health of a kitten easier than it seems to a person from the outside. Sometimes. and reward him with chronic diseases, with which the new owner will have to fight his whole future life. So, if the breeder says that the kitten ate his food from the table (borscht, fried potatoes, sausage) or economy-class food with an unfortunate 4% meat in the composition (Kitecat, Whiskas, Friskies, Darling, Felix, CatChow), then, having bought this kitten, you with no small probability run the risk of having an animal at home not only with disturbed gastronomic addictions, but also with chronic gastritis, pancreatitis, liver pathologies. It is unlikely that an adequate person can dream of a pet with such a dowry.
If the breeders do not have a single scratching post at home, the kitten cannot be accustomed to it. If a cat with kittens is used to walking through the window of the first floor, then in the new house the kitten will try to walk in the same way (which is fraught with the death of the baby if its new owners live above the second floor). In other words, when deciding whether to take a particular cute kitten, find out as many details as possible about its nutrition, maintenance and habits and consider them from the point of view of possible problems in your future life together. In the end, you choose not a toy for several months, but an animal with which you have to live together for the next fifteen years. And your choice of a kitten largely depends on how happy and cloudless these years of marriage will be.

What is important when buying a purebred kitten?
It may seem that there is nothing difficult in acquiring a purebred feline. However, this is not at all the case. Buying a thoroughbred kitten contains a lot of nuances that must be taken into account. It is important to note that the breeding of thoroughbred animals is not an easy task, it seems simple Therefore, in this area there are many random and unscrupulous people who sell “not very thoroughbred” animals, passing them off as thoroughbred and, what is more tragic, not very healthy or even terminally ill animals for healthy. So, what should you pay special attention to when purchasing a purebred kitten??
When choosing a cat breed, it is important to be based not only on its visual perception, i.e. exterior characteristics, but also on the qualities that are inherent in a particular breed. The fact is that each breed of cats has special characteristics inherent in it by nature. By paying attention to this factor, you can avoid problems that may appear in the future. You should decide for yourself if you can get along with a cat that has certain habits.
15 THINGS I WISH I KNEW BEFORE GETTING A CAT/KITTEN
For example, Oriental and Siamese cat breeds are characterized by excessive activity, which does not make sense to tame. This does not depend on the upbringing or character of a particular cat, these are breed features that cannot be avoided.
There are different representatives of felines: calm, energetic and very energetic, talkative and not very, well and badly tolerating the temporary absence of the owner, for example, during the working day, etc. It is important to choose the right breed, the one that is close to you and your family.
There is such a term as the breed of an animal. And this is not just the attribution of an animal to a particular breed, which is necessarily confirmed by the pedigree. The breed of an animal is the quality of the breed characteristics, i.e. compliance of the external characteristics of the cat with breed standards. It is important that the kitten’s parents have excellent breed data, as evidenced by their titles. Ask if the kitten’s parents took part in exhibitions, and this is not just idle information
The breed of an animal is determined by experts at exhibitions by a certain system of assessing and assigning titles to animals. The most initial title in adult animals. it is the Champion of the breed (Ch), which opens the show career and the path to breeding for the animal. The presence of this title is mandatory for parents of kittens, at least for a cat, unless of course you want a purebred kitten, and not like a purebred one. The final and most significant title is Champion of the World (W.Ch). Each title given to an animal is accompanied by a title certificate and an assessment sheet, which you can see from the breeder. All titles of ancestors are marked in the pedigree of the animal and the more there are, the higher its potential breed.
Sale of kittens “without documents”. Kittens “similar to pedigree”.
You can often find advertisements for the sale of pedigree kittens without documents, allegedly because the kitten is being sold as a pet. Needless to say that the presence of documents is precisely the confirmation that the animal is purebred.
When buying a kitten, the breeder gives the new owner a metric about the origin of the animal. It is issued for each kitten by the club’s felinologist when registering a litter, based on the pedigree of the parents and the examination of the kitten. The metric contains basic information about the kitten: breed, date of birth, sex of the animal, color, breed of parents, numbers of their pedigrees, their color and titles, if any. If a kitten is sold (for various reasons) as a pet, then in the metric the breeder makes a note: “without the right of breeding”. Based on the metric of a kitten, you can purchase its pedigree in the club where the breeder is or the cattery is registered. Most often, undocumented kittens are sold in the following cases:
- The documents are not completed, tk. the litter is not registered in the club, for example, mating between the British and Scottish breeds is now prohibited, and the pedigrees of its parents can serve as conditional proof of the kitten’s belonging to the breed.
- Lack of pedigree in one or both parents of a kitten, which most often happens when they were acquired at one time. without breeding rights. Litter in this case cannot be registered. A certain part of “similar” animals are born from thoroughbred animals acquired without the right to breed. The lack of such a right may be due to genetic abnormalities incompatible with breeding.
The sale of undocumented kittens is the absence of any responsibility of the so-called amateur breeders. By purchasing an undocumented kitten, in addition to the absence of a true belonging to the breed, you can acquire a bunch of problems: from health problems to anomalies in the development of an animal, which can appear in the first year of its life.
You should worry about the health of your future pet already at the stage of its acquisition. The optimal age for weaning a kitten from its mother is 10.12 weeks, which is associated with the kitten’s immune system, the period of vaccination and normal socialization.
Weaning a kitten early from its mother can seriously affect its immunity. Until this period, you can get acquainted with the kitten and, if desired, reserve it to leave it with you.
What does a healthy kitten look like? A healthy kitten makes a very pleasant impression. The kitten has shiny fur, clear eyes, clean ears, pink mouth. Everything is clean under the tail, the skin around the anus should not look sore pink. The kitten should not sneeze, suffer from watery eyes, have any discharge, or smell bad. A healthy kitten’s tummy should be soft enough. The kitten must be active and playful.
If a kitten has some peculiarities in development, this happens sometimes, then a conscientious breeder must inform about it.
Unfortunately, often the acquisition of a kitten in a random place, at a symbolic price, from the so-called “lovers” is fraught with serious diseases in animals, the treatment of which requires a lot of time, material and emotional costs, and is not always successful And these are the risks that it would be good to estimate in advance.
Any sales agreement implies the ability to independently examine a kitten in the clinic. Do not neglect this opportunity, it can be of significant benefit. According to the rules specified in the contract, the survey can be performed within 3-5 days after purchase. If viral diseases are found, the kitten can be returned to the breeder.
The personality of the breeder and the conditions for raising a kitten
A breeder is not just a stranger, it is the first educator of your little pet. A lot in the character and life of a kitten will be determined by the conditions of existence in the first weeks. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to these very conditions: the impression that the breeder made on you, the room in which the animals live, its general cleanliness and cleanliness of the toilet space, places for food, the presence of a play area, the grooming and fatness of the animals in the room.
It is important that the breeder advises you on nutrition, care, further maintenance, as well as the necessary purchases for the future pet. A conscientious breeder who loves his pupils will do everything in his power to make the animal in the new family as comfortable as possible.
It is advisable that the breeder inspires confidence in you and is available for contact. Indeed, after acquiring a kitten, a number of questions may arise, with the solution of which the breeder can help. It would be great if he offered this help to you himself, asking you to inform him about the kitten’s condition at first and not hesitate to call if you have any questions. A good breeder perceives his pupils as his own children, because so much work and moral strength has been invested in them.!
The formal side of the issue
Often, the process of buying and selling an animal is not supported by any documents. Both the breeder and the buyer may find this a waste of time. However, buying a thoroughbred animal should be taken more seriously. Don’t neglect paperwork!
Despite the fact that the contract is formal in nature, it regulates the rights and obligations of each party and is disciplinary in nature. The contract must be read carefully, it is better to familiarize yourself with it in advance at home, if you need to ask the breeder to make clarifications or amendments.
Veterinary passport. one might say, the main document of the animal. The breeder must, with the kitten, give you his veterinary passport. It should contain marks about deworming and vaccination. over, the breeder must explain what each mark means, and inform about the need and time for the following preventive procedures.
Documents of origin are a mandatory attribute when buying a purebred kitten. The document of origin can be presented in two versions. The first is the kitten’s metric. It contains basic information about the pet and its parents, as well as information about the possibility or prohibition of breeding the animal. A kitten that is sold with the right to breed will cost much more for the price. If you want to purchase a pet without the right to breed, then in due time you will need to castrate the animal.
If necessary, using the animal’s metrics, you can draw up a pedigree. This is exactly the second document. The pedigree, in contrast to the metric, contains extended information about the ancestors of the animal to the mowing line of the great-great-grandfathers. When buying an animal “without the right of breeding”, the pedigree can also be issued, it will differ only in the absence of numbers of ancestors’ pedigrees. As a rule, the pedigree is drawn up at will.

What you need to know when buying a reefer container
In order not to become a victim of fraud when buying containers and to operate it correctly, it is necessary to understand several important points. What you need to know when buying a reefer container?
The side and end walls of such a container are made of sandwich panels. Outside, it is sheathed with duralumin or stainless steel, and inside with profile sheets of food-grade steel. There is an insulating material between the layers. polyurethane foam. An aluminum T-profile is used as a floor covering, designed for the strength of a warehouse forklift. The doors are also made of sandwich panels and are equipped with a locking mechanism to ensure a good seal. The stainless steel case is stronger and more weather-resistant than aluminum, but also more expensive. For the stationary version, the aluminum version is quite suitable.
Such a container is equipped with climatic units that constantly conduct self-diagnostics. The results are displayed on the product screen. The explanation of the error codes is given on the cover of the controller.
During loading, the walls of the refrigerated container can be accidentally damaged. At the place of the dent formation, the polyurethane foam peels off and, as a result, the thermal insulation is disturbed. In case of minor damage, this does not affect the operation of the installation, but still, the places of damage should always be carefully inspected.
Compressors are used in two types: reciprocating (copeland) and scroll (sroll). Spiral-type units are more modern and are characterized by compactness, low power consumption, but they are not repairable. In the event of a breakdown of such compressors, they are completely replaced, which saves time, especially when operating at sea. Pistons are more reliable, they are easy to disassemble for repair or replacement of parts. When using a refrigerated container as a warehouse, the type of compressor is not important.
Climatic units for operation are filled with freon 134, less often 404 with increased cooling capacity. Some models are equipped with an automatic carbon dioxide supply system, which extends the shelf life of perishable food.
Several models of containers are popular on the Russian market. Themoking (USA) is cheaper and comes with an extended controller panel. A similar German Carrier with almost the same characteristics is 10% more expensive. Japanese Daikins are used less often, spare parts can be purchased from our company Eurocont, as an official representative. Structurally, they differ in the use of gas instead of heating elements for heating. Earlier models are not efficient for operation in the High North.
When choosing used containers, the difference of several years is not significant, because its technical condition is important. Containers, which were used as a stationary warehouse, have much less wear and tear than when used for rail transportation. The year of manufacture is easy to fake, but if you involve an experienced specialist, he can easily determine the age of the container.
In terms of dimensions, refrigerated containers are classified into 20, 40 and 45 feet. The climatic equipment is the same for all types of containers and makes up a significant part of the total cost of the container.
A level platform is required to install the container, or four secure points of support must be provided under the fittings. You can significantly extend the life of the container if you put Euro pallets on it in the summer and cover it with a tarpaulin made of thick fabric to reduce external heating.
The ice defrosting mode is switched on and performed automatically, therefore it is allowed to open the doors only when absolutely necessary. After this, the unit must be restarted. When carrying out loading / unloading work, the unit is recommended to be switched off. Start-up is carried out after the end of work and only with closed doors.
If it is necessary to keep the doors of the switched on container in the open position for some time, then a special thermal curtain made of PVC is used, which prevents the penetration of warm air into the interior. In the event that a large amount of heated air still gets into the system, it is necessary to start the defrost mode. Otherwise, condensation will form, which can damage the equipment.
The temperature inside the container is maintained in the range from 25 ° C to 25 ° C. Some newer models have an extended range from 30 ° C to 40 ° C. The unit is powered by a three-phase voltage network of 380 V. At maximum load, it consumes about 5.0. 8.0 kW of electricity. The service life of refrigerated containers is at least 30 years, even when used in sea conditions.
Feeding at first
Briefly touching on the issue, the criteria that are adhered to are as follows:

- Dry food is recommended to be introduced from 2 months of age.
A place to sleep
- cleanliness, warmth and dryness;
- naturalness of materials;
- convenient entrance;
- the possibility of washing, airing and warming up in the sun.
