BUYER BEWARE!! She goes by two names, Joni Preston and Joan Cox.

Justin and Roanoke area of DFW.

THIS BREEDER DOES NOT DO GENETIC TESTING ON HER CATS/KITTENS. AND IF SHE DOES, SHE IS PURPOSEFULLY SELLING KITTENS WITH GENETIC PREDISPOSITION FOR HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY!!

We purchased two kittens from TXRagdoll Kittens in September of 2020, and picked them up to bring home in November.

One of our precious kittens was diagnosed with Feline Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy about a month ago by a cardiologist at Texas A&M University's Small Animal Hopital. Today we received test results that the other has tested positive heterozygous for the HCM mutation.

When we previously contacted Joni about this, she blamed the rabies vaccines for causing this GENETIC issue.

Anyone with half a brain that has a rudimentary understanding of science knows that that is NOT how genetics works.

She also tried to tell us that we needed to wait until the kittens were over 10 lbs before giving them a rabies vaccine because they were too small for a rabies vaccine dose meant for 10 lbs cats.

That is NOT how vaccines work.

Vaccine dosages have NOTHING to do with weight. Dogs and cats of all sizes get the same dosage.

We want all buyers, and potential buyers, to be aware of possible genetic health issues when purchasing a kitten from THIS breeder.

It's obvious that Joni Preston doesn't care about the kittens that she sells, regardless of what she tells you.

She is just in it for the money.

Unfortunately, we trusted this con artist and lined her pockets with $4,000.

Now, one of our precious, sweet babies is dealing with a terminal illness that could have been avoided if this breeder had done proper genetic testing on her breeding cats.

Our family is heartbroken over this! We would hate to see another family have to go through what we are going through as the result of purchasing a kitten from this irresponsible breeder.

If you are seriously considering purchasing a Ragdoll kitten, please, please, please look for another breeder!

If you want to buy a Ragdoll, look for a breeder that is reputable, ethical, and registered. Look for a breeder that actually cares about the kittens that they breed. I promise you that Joni Preston and Texas Ragdoll Kittens aren't any of those things.

Unfortunately, we found that out the hard way. Don't make the same mistake that we did.

User's recommendation: AVOID.

Monetary Loss: $4000.

Texas Ragdoll Kittens Cons: Ignorant seller.

There was no $4000 loss as he purchased two cats and he did not lose both cats (that is the total for two cats). And his cat did not die, he euthanized it after a lethal rabies vaccine at 3 pounds and 4 months of age.

We advise against rabies shots for Ragdolls especially when they are small. Troy did not listen.

This is loaded with untruths, told by a big pharma rep who over dosed his 3 pound kitten on rabies vaccine. We are not a kitten mill and he knows this.

He has been to our home and bought from us twice, he failed to heed our warning about vaccines and proceeded to inject a 4 month old kitten with a full dose of rabies vaccine, which is dangerous for Ragdolls.

Since then, he has been PISSED OFF AT ME. Not our fault, we warn against it.
