Links to information about HCM and PKD

All our cats - pets and breeding cats - are HCM n/n (Hypertrophic Cardio Myopathy) DNA tested to be negative for the Ragdoll marker.  We have worked with, and tested, of our lines from the beginning, and have never used a HCM carrier in our breeding program.  In 2015 and 2016 we have had kittens from 4th and 5th generation with our catteryname.

During previous generations our cats are tested free for PKD - which is a kidney disease,  and not very common in ragdolls at all.
