Cat can be described as delightful, charming and
fascinating. The Ragdoll cat breed was developed in
California by a woman named Ann Baker, who wanted to
capture the amazing docile nature of these cats. There
are many versions of the story as to how they were
created. No one, except Ann, who has since passed away,
knows the exact truth about how the Ragdoll breed came into being. More important is what the
Ragdoll Cat is today; a remarkable and beautiful
companion suitable for a loving family, who is seeking a
cat that will be devoted to them. The Ragdoll is a
pointed breed, meaning the extremities are a darker shade
than the body, with lovely blue eyes. It is a playful
cat, with a gentle nature and is noted for its tendency
to go limp when picked up. Having a soft, silky,
semi-long coat, the Ragdoll Cat requires a minimum of
grooming. The coat is often described as feeling like
rabbit fur. The Ragdoll Cat is a fairly large cat, not
attaining full size until two or three years of age.
My adult males average 15 pounds with females
maturing about 5 pounds less.
Please note that
there are some myths about Ragdoll cats. For instance, Ragdoll cats do shed, but not to the degree of
other longhair cats. Also, not every Ragdoll cat will choose to be a lap cat. Just like
us, they have individual personalities. Each will have its' own likes and
dislikes and choose how it wants to display affection. Some will sit on your
lap, others will sit next to you or at your feet. Other pets in the household
may have a direct effect on how the Ragdoll cat interacts with you.
What all Ragdoll cats do have in common is
that they want to love and be loved. Taking the time to build a relationship
with your own unique Ragdoll can be a very rewarding experience.
There is little
that can be compared to being loved by a happy Ragdoll!
