Meet Our RagdollsRagdoll Breed Info.

Ragdolls are large, laid back, semi longhaired cats with captivating blue eyes. 

The Ragdoll is a pointed bred, which means that the body is lighter in color than the points (the face, legs, tail and ears).   The Ragdoll cat is carefully bred to produce large affectionate cats in three patterns, two with white (mitted  and bicolor) and one with no white (oolorpoint).

T he ideal Ragdll is a well balanced cat, with no extreme features.  Altered males will usualy 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 2 years and full size and weight at 4 years old.

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 with you where ever you are.  Ragdolls are smart cats, many have been taught to come when called and play fetch.  They are gentle, docile cats who are very loving.

The Ragdoll's semi long coat is plush and silky, and requires minimal grooming to keep it looking it's best.  Their Ragdoll quality coats  consist mainly of long, soft guard hairs.   Ragdolls, like all breeds of cats will shed, usually with the change of seasons.  The absence of the thick, dense undercoats results in reduced shedding and matting.  

Ragdolls are well behaved , loving cats that are easy to care for.  They are the perfect breed for our modern, busy lifestyles.
