Here in Canada Ragdolls start at $750 for pet quality and you can get a Siamese for $200-$250.

Just wanted to say that I've been doing research on Ragdolls and I know that the price range is usually between $500-$700. Personally, I would play closer to $600.

I believe Birmans are about the same price.

Good luck with your hunt!

go to www.petfinder.org and do a pet search there for the cat you are looking for . Believe it or not they do have lots of pedigree cats that are thrown away and available for adoption. I have seem many siamese in my area and some persians. You can also contact the breeders of these type of cats and ask for an older fixed cat, they will sell them cheaper. I also like the Main coon cat and have seen them at petfinder and at petshows for $300. Good luck and think about petfinder to give a unwanted animal a home. catlover

That's about right - $1000 to $1500 CDN!

Pinkdaisy - I was just kidding re the exchange rate between Canadian and US currency although it's not nearly as bad as it used to be since our dollar has been steadily rising. Not a problem. I'm sure the prices will vary greatly from one area to the next and agree that the best way to get pricing is to check out breeders in your own area.

I am not sure about the modern style of Siamese, but on average, the pet price for a Traditional Siamese is commonly $350-$600...usually close to the $500 mark. Traditional Balinese usually go between $500-$700. These are general prices for CFA registered kitties. Hope this helps!

Wow, cats are expensive in the US. In Canada a Traditional/Applehead pet Siamese goes between $200-$300 Cdn.

Bijou cost us $175 and Mika was $200

I thought it was that the value of our dollar is dropping?

why buy a cat when there are plenty of cats that need a home in shelters all across the nation?? you will be saving a life and You can safe a bunch of money. Most shelters only ask for the cost of neutering or a small adoption fee. I'd give those cats a chance first.

I paid $1000 for my Bengal Simba, but I've seen them going for as low as $500

I paid $550.00 for my male Ragdoll and $525.00 for my Female Ragdoll. I got a break on my Female because I purchased from the same Breeder she was $575.00. I agree some of the Best Cats are the ones who are being given away or are looking to be adopted from a shelter. It's like they are know how lucky they are to find a good home and spend their entire lives letting you love them for it.

Was yours purchased with a breeding contract?
Bengals can go for as low as $500. but the quality is pet therefore not as pretty usually as the higher quality, higher priced ones.

I would expect to pay around $500 for a pet quality kitten. Make sure you go to a responsible breeder, not a back yard breeder or a pet shop. I don't knw about Bengals, Ragdolls, Traditional Balinese, and Siberians but most breeders, no matter what breed, charge around $500 for a pet kitten. Some of the rarer breeds, like the Mau and the Siberian may cost you more.

The Ragdoll price ranges anywhere between 500.00 to 1300.00 depending on if you want pet quality, show quality, or breeders. Norwegians usually go for 800.00 for pets where I live. I know that is what mine will go for. 1000.00 for breeders.

In Hawaii a neutered/spayed Bengal kitten with very defined coat: $1400
Otherwise, they are in the $450 to $900 range
