About us

Benchmark Cattery is located in Southern Wisconsin. We are located on the WI/IL border approximately 2 hours from Chicago and Milwaukee and 1 hour from Madison, WI.

Here we maintain a small number of breeding females, all show-quality cats receiving high quality care, and it shows.   Many comments have been made regarding the coat conditioning of Benchmark Cats.  Our cats are fed Fromm Brand Holistic Cat Food in both dry and canned food. They also receive treats of salmon, tuna and lamb. The adage “you are what you eat,” does apply.

Our litters are born in a quiet room where mother and litter are not stressed.  Kittens are closely monitored for care, growth and health and have been placed in several states with owners confirming great things regarding our breeding program.

Benchmark RagaMuffins are registered with the ACFA (American Cat Fancier’s Association) and the CFA (Cat Fancier’s Association).   We are members of RAG (RagaMuffin Associated Group.  Benchmark is also a proud member of The RagaMuffin Kitten Breeder’s Society (TRKBS).  TRKBS  members breed authentic RagaMuffins and adhere to an enforced breeding code of ethics.

* Benchmark cats or their breeding lines are DNA tested for the HCM Gene and have tested negative for FeLV (feline lukemia) and FIV (feline AIDS).
