Accent About Us

Chatabelles is a family oriented cattery. It is owned and operated by Rose Ann and Bruno Althot, who is located in Tillsonburg, Ontario, Canada.

Chatabelles is a french word, when broken up, Chat means "cat" and Belle means "beautiful." What a perfect name to describe this breed.

These cats are very much our pets and are truly loved. Anyone who comes for a visit can definitely tell you that! All the kittens are raised under foot and are handled daily by us and our children as well as our children's friends, etc.

Neko and Zachary Binx and Max are our Kings! They are all extremely affection males. Our Queens are Oliviera, Esmeralda, Paris, Portia, Anastasia, Fiskr and Sephora. Oh, yes....I shouldn't forget Bo, he is our male that is neutered. We fell in love with this character and couldn't part with him. Wow.... what a personality! Bo fetches and also plays hide-and-go-seek. Definitely a smart breed!

All of our kittens come with their first set of shots, they are also vet checked for health at Ostranders Vet Clinic. They come with the health record, and a year health guarantee will be given. Each kitten will be de-wormed 3 times. They will be Registered with "The International Cat Association", once the kitten is spayed/neutered. Everyone who purchases a kitten will receive a receipt and documentation of an official sales contract. We also provide anyone with on going support with regards to their new kitten.

Like mentioned earlier we are located In Tillsonburg. Our address is:

Believe me you'll have the time of your life here!

You'll be kitten smittened!





In October 2013, we added a new member to our family.... Isabella Jade... A retired Ragdoll Queen. She is the most gentle, affectionate and loveable kitty!!!  She "talks" to us to let us know if she wants a treat or a cold drink from the tap.  Since I have been off work not feeling well she looks forward to our cuddle times late morning and again in the afternoon. I love Izzy, she is my baby kitty!!! Thank you to Rosie and Bruno for choosing us to be  Izzy's new family!!!  Thanks: Cheryl.


I got my kitten last November. She was about 4 months old at the time. Rose-Ann and Bruno delivered her to me with a food sample and a small blanket with her mother's scent. Rose-Ann was very helpful with all my questions. My kitten was already litter trained, and to this day I had no problems with her use of her litter box. She is very healthy, active, playful and affectionate. I never had any problems with her appetite. She likes to run around and kick a little rubber ball all over the living room, but she also likes to sleep beside me or just sit and watch me go about my chores. Sometimes she will meow with her little voice until I pet her. She used to like climbing onto tables and countertops, but that happens less now that she's bigger. I will definitely consider "Chatabelles” again if I decide to add another ragdoll cat to my household. Thank you: Carlo.


 "I adopted a ragdoll from Rosie, and he's truly wonderful. The sweetest kitty you'll ever meet! I got him at 2 months old with all the vet papers needed! Rosie was amazing.  I asked a million questions and she answered each one. She even drove down to Toronto to drop him off

My experience with this cattery was great and if I want to further expand my family, I'll definitely adopt from Rosie again! Thanks: Fizza.


A few months ago I was mentioning to a friend at work that I wanted to buy a new kitten to keep our 5 month old rescue kitten occupied at home. My colleague asked me if I had considered a ragdoll kitten. I had never even heard of this breed before – so the research began! I fell in love with what I was reading about the breed instantly, and their adorable appearance didn’t hurt. I was surprised to find that there were a number of Ragdoll breeders in Ontario. I reached out to about 6 in total. Some didn’t have any kittens available, and some breeders were quiet rude. Not only was Rosie at Chatabelles incredibly friendly and helpful, she also offered a greater variety of colours, and lower prices than the other breeders. Rosie would email me back and forth answering all of my questions and send me up to date pictures of the kittens. When we finally went to pick up our kitten it was so great to see all of the happy cats and kittens just lounging around the house.

Now, we have our 9 week old kitten that we named Gizmo at home. He is absolutely perfect! He is so sweet and cuddly with a purr louder than our 6 month old. He and our other cat are the best of friends. When they aren’t busy chasing each other around the house, they are cuddled up on the window ledge. At night both cats snuggle with us in bed and Gizmo shares his time evenly between my husband and I. Almost as if he is trying to make sure one of us doesn’t feel left out J.

Overall, I would highly recommend this breeder to anyone who is looking for a new kitten! You can’t go wrong with this breed, but going through Chatabelles ensures the whole process is an enjoyable one. Thanks: Meaghan.



Last summer I purchased a Ragdoll kitten from Chatabelles. The entire experience was amazing. Rose-Ann was always willing to answer any of the questions I had throughout the process. Since I lived a few hours from her house, she would send me pictures to keep me updated on the kitten I chose. She was also able to accept payment by email which was very convenient for me. My kitten came with his first set of vaccinations, deworming treatments, and a health record which was very helpful when transitioning him to a new veterinary clinic in Guelph. The kitten I brought home was perfect! He was healthy, litter box trained and loved to cuddle. He has such a loving and fun personality, he even plays fetch with his toys.  I am so happy with my kitten and the service that Chatabelles delivered. Thank you so much again! Stanley is my little buddy! Follows me around everywhere! Thanks: Candice.


After I had to say goodbye to my 11 year old Himalayan, I decided I wanted 2 cats, and a breed that was a little more hands-on than the typical Himalayan.  I did my research and decided on the Ragdoll.  I began researching breeders in my area (Ottawa) but thankfully found Rose-Ann Althot's Chatabelles site.  Right away I loved seeing that the cats were "family cats" raised in a loving home.  I also loved their gorgeous faces.  Throughout the process of adopting my new wee ones, Rosie was helpful every step of the way. My cats are now 10 months old, gorgeous, monstrous, and have stolen our hearts.  They are sweet, loving, and both loads of comedy-relief!  They have excellent health and are loving towards strangers and each other.  I am so thankful for these two sidekicks.  As I type this, Lucy is sleeping with her paw resting on my arm and Leo is squished in beside her in a space that is clearly too small for him. Thank you once again Chatabelle's for bringing these two gems into my life!

Thanks: Jane.



I'm a very happy customer of Rose-Ann.

Her cats are amazing! Rose-Ann takes care of them the very best way.

I'm so happy I have a cat from her home and it is really a great personality and beloved.

Thank you,



When we decided to add a kitten to our home, we were looking for a breed, that would be compatible with our puppy. We had an amazing Siamese cat for many years, & were thinking about getting another one. I decided to research the various cat breeds, & discovered the Ragdoll. It seemed to have all the qualities that we were looking for. Just like our Siamese, we were smitten with the gorgeous big blue eyes! We liked the fact, that Ragdolls are bigger, gentle, & easy going. We went to our vet, to ask his opinion of this breed. We wanted to make sure that Ragdolls were a healthy cat. Our vet told us, that Ragdolls are his favourite cat, & that they are very healthy. It was now time to find a reputable breeder. I checked out a lot of Ragdoll breeder's websites, & discovered Chatabelles. I was captivated by the beautiful, organized website. I e-mailed Rosie, & she got back to me right away. I told her what I was looking for, & she said that she had kittens available. Three days later, we went to meet Rosie & the kittens. Esmeralda (our kitten's mama) had four sweet little fur balls! They were three weeks old. We chose the Seal Point male, & named him Ryley. He has just had his first birthday, & is now a healthy, husky, thirteen pounds! Ryley....aka"George Clooney" as our vet calls him lol, because he's so handsome, is incredibly smart. He opens closet doors, by putting his paw under the door, & pulling it open, & then plays with the shoes! He loves playing with his little furry mice. I'll throw the mouse, & he fetches it, & brings it back to me! We've played this game together, since I brought him home, when he was nine weeks old. We have a great time!

Ryley, certainly lives up to the description of this amazing breed. He is smart, sweet, gentle, & a very easy going guy!

Rosie & Bruno, are wonderful, caring people, that operate a beautiful Ragdoll cattery. We're so glad that we chose Chatabelles! If we were to get another Ragdoll, Rosie is who I'd be calling.

We highly recommend Rosie & Bruno of Chatabelles. Just go for a visit, & you'll be kitten smittened!!


Thank you: Ann. 



As someone who owns three small birds, one of the first questions I asked Rosie was if her kittens would be okay with them.  She reassured me that they would by telling me all about her queens, and recommending which litters I should adopt from.  She treats all her cats like members of the family, calling them by name and knowing each of their individual personalities.  From this I knew that I had found the right breeder.

On May 1st, 2015, I adopted a 9 week old female ragdoll from Rosie.  After only being with me for a few hours, Pearl was already very affectionate and napping by my side.  She's a very energetic and playful kitten who always wants to be with me or a member of my family.  Even as I'm typing this she is purring from her spot on my lap. 

This whole experience has been a positive one.  Rosie has been incredibly helpful throughout this entire process, and I would definitely recommend her kittens to anyone looking to add a new member to their family.



Thank you again, Rosie!


This is Cleopatra. We purchased Cleo from Roseann at Chatabelles almost two years ago. We love her personality.  She's very easygoing and she loves to be carried around in your arms while sprawled on her back. She's very funny!!

Roseann was a pleasure to deal with and always gets back to us promtly with an answer to any questions or concerns we have.  She truly loves what she does and it shows.  Keep up the good work Rose-ann!!!

Thanks: Carole.




This is Alice Marie. I purchased Alice as my very first pet from Rose Ann at Chatabelles on April 18/2014. She has the most amazing personality. She talks to me constantly and loves to be brushed for long periods of time on top of the washing machine. She loves to sleep on her back with her fluffy tummy in the air on top of the table. Her castle is where she hangs out when I'm in my room, she's always by my side and loves to make me laugh. I'm in love my kitty more then I imagined I ever could and she's so very happy here! 


Rose Ann has been a pleasure to deal with and is always there to answer any questions or concerns. She truly loves what she does and she does a fantastic job at it. Keep up the good work Rose Ann!!! Thanks: Laura.


It was love at first sight. But he was in Canada and I was in the US. So I continued to look domestically… but I kept coming back to the picture on Chatabelles website of the mink mitted flame point. He was exactly what I was looking for !  So I contacted Rosie and she jumped through all the hoops, above and beyond, making sure I had the right documentation so I could adopt him and bring him back to the US without a hitch. If she had not been so accommodating I may have just given up on that lovely boy, but she was so incredibly communicative, answered all my questions and made the cross border adoption easy for me.  And I could not be happier:  He is a fabulous cat, even more handsome in person than his picture! He is very healthy, affectionate, playful, inquisitive and gets along extremely well with my other cats.  A wonderful addition to the family, thanks to Rosie!

Thanks: Jennifer.


"Rosie’s friendly invitation to visit her home and meet her ragdolls was the start of my wonderful experience with Chatabelles cattery, and surprisingly unique compared to the other catteries I had contacted previously. We got to interact with kittens and adults of this amazing breed with no commitment to buy required, and immediately fell in love with spunky little Mia. The entire process was professional yet reassuring, and Rosie still answers any questions we have to this day nine months later. Mia is affectionate and quirky; she sleeps wrapped around my head at night (and does not irritate my allergies!). I can’t imagine not having her to meet us at the front door every time we come home.”

Thanks: Amanda


My daughter and I purchased two lovely female Ragdolls from Rose Althot in Tillsonburg, Ontario. Since we acquired these two kittens, one a blue bi-colour the other a seal-point, we have not been disappointed. They have certainly brought a lot of joy and laughter to our home. I highly recommend anyone interested in the Ragdoll breed to contact Chatabelle Cattery in Tillsonburg when considering purchasing a ragdoll for a pet. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Rose for all your help and for breeding such lovable kittens.

Thanks: Carolyn
