Welcome to the official website of
The British Ragdoll Cat Club (TBRCC)
The committee of The British Ragdoll Cat Club were saddened to hear the news that Paula Long had passed away suddenly whilst visiting family in Canada. Paula had been a loyal and valuable member of the club for many years and a lot of those years were spent on the committee taking on various roles. Show Support, Show Manager, BAC Delegate and Honorary Secretary. Paula steered the club through a difficult period and shouldered many responsibilities at that time. She was a very determined lady and would help and support you. You always knew where you stood with Paula. A very efficient and enthusiastic lady. She will go down as a very important part of the clubs history. Paula bred Ragdolls for a few years under the Osocool prefix. Together with her mother Jean they would be at the Supreme Show each year with a lavish picnic complete with the table, cutlery and crockery. All were welcome.
The club extends condolences to her husband, family and friends.
Ragdoll BAC Seminar
It is a requirement of all recognised GCCF breeders to hold a BAC (breed Advisory Committee) seminar every two years. This is for judges, stewards, breeders and exhibitors. There will be a joint seminar held with the Birman, Snowshoe and Singapura breeds on 24th September 2017 at Mapplebrough Green Village Hall, Redditch. The topic for demonstration/discussion will be Ragdoll type. We would encourage people to attend.

We are receiving regular requests from members of the public seeking confirmation that breeders are members/registered breeders, after seeing statements from a breeder to that effect. We also receive
complaints from kitten buyers who were led to believe the breeder was a member of TBRCC. This
creates extra workload for the committee, who then need to cross reference the membership list and
reply to these enquiries.
If we find that the breeder concerned is not a member, we contact the breeder to highlight the mistake and politely request that they correct the error within a certain timeframe. If the breeder does not, then a disclaimer is put on the website. Whilst we apologise for any offence, we feel this is necessary and prevents a breeder being questionned by Trading Standards over incorrect advertising, and ourselves being involved in any private matter between a breeder and any other individual.
