Ragdoll Cat Breed

Ragdolls will grow up to be considered a large cat, also laid-back and semi longhaired with emerging blue eyes. The Ragdoll is a pointed breed, meaning the body is lighter in color than the points (the face, legs, tail and ears). The Ragdoll is bred to produce large affectionate kittens in three patterns, two with white and one with no white. The ideal Ragdoll is a well balanced animal, with no hard and rough features. Males will usually top the scale at 15-20 pounds while females are proportionately smaller and usually weigh between 10-15 pounds when mature. Ragdolls are slow-maturing, reaching full coat color at two years, and full size and weight at four years of age. Ragdolls were developed in the 1960’s by Ann Baker; a breeder in Riverside California. The origin of the Ragdoll breed consisted almost entirely of free-roaming cats. Ann bred Josephine, a domestic longhaired white female that was found running loose in her neighborhood, to other cats she owned or found. The offspring of this female had unique temperament traits that were very endearing. By selecting individuals with the look, temperament and criteria she wanted for her breeding program, she created the Ragdoll breed.

Almost round and slightly oblique, bright china blue.

A thick silky topcoat of medium length over a shorter silky undercoat; with ruff, breeches and a plumed tail.

There are four patterns: bi-color, van, mitted and color point. Patterns come in six colors: blue seal, chocolate, red, liliac, 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!
