Intelligent, elegant, outgoing and a boss in their own way, best describes the docile cats named the Ragdoll. This breed originated from the breeding of a white female Persian with a male Birman.
The Ragdoll breed is a less active cat but sometimes reminds of a young child that is fond of playing with toys and loves to take part on whatever activities you might be doing. You may hug them often in a baby-like manner to soothe and pamper them.
The Ragdoll is also known to be a fast learner. Research says that they are more eager to pay attention to activities when you give them a bonus or reward for accomplishments.
This breed of cats is usually large with a cute face and a touch of masculine appeal. Their classiness is best shown by their soft medium-long and non-matting coat that you will surely love to touch and feel.
Ragdolls are classified as pointed cats though they are usually born white. As they grow older their fur’s color starts to develop into colorpoint, mitted and bi-color. Most colorpoint Ragdolls have darkpoints in their ears, tail, feet and face without white markings. A mitted Ragdoll is similar to a colorpoint Ragdoll, but they have a white mitt on their front paws. The Ragdoll also has a touch of white on its chin, boots on the back legs and feet, ruff and stomach. The bi-color Ragdoll has darkpoints, but can easily be distinguished by their pink noses and paw pads.
The Ragdoll posseses a non-fighting attitude so it will seldom fight back against other cats. They are often regarded as a sweet, silent cat but you will surely hear them out whenever its close to feeding time. They love being groomed.
To ensure your stylish and playful Ragdoll is healthy, you must provide them with good food, water and make sure they receive all vaccines and veterinary checkups.
