BREED PROFILE:
Ragdoll

Ragdoll The Ragdoll is a very laid back cat. The ideal Ragdoll is a well balanced cat, medium to large, moderately longhaired, blue-eyed pointed cat. The point markings may be covered by a range of white overlay patterns.

Altered males will usually top the scale at 15-20 pounds; females are proportionately smaller and usually weigh between 10-15 pounds at maturity. Ragdolls are slow-maturing, reaching full coat color at two years, and full size and weight at four.

There are four patterns: bi-color, van, mitted and colorpoint. Patterns come in six colors: seal, blue, chocolate, lilac, red, and cream. Points may be solid, lynx, tortie, or torbie (tortie and lynx). If you do the math, you can see that there are quite a large number of different combinations possible!

CHARACTERISTICS: Large cat with color at the points
PERSONALITY: Docile, placid and affectionate

The Ragdoll is an affectionate and intelligent cat. Ragdoll cats tend to be more interested in humans than some breeds of cats. They are known to run to greet you at the door, follow you from room to room, flop on you, sleep with you, and generally choose to be where you are. Many Ragdolls have been taught to come when called and play fetch. They are gentle cats, and usually play without extending their claws. Ragdolls tend to be floor cats, not jumpers.
