The beauty of the Ragdoll is only one of their many features.
Their disposition and personality are what makes them a truly unique cat.
They are quiet, playful, placid, relaxed and very loving. They make a wonderful house or apartment cat because they adapt well to the indoors.
A Ragdoll should never be left outside unattended.
They can be easily leash trained, however, it is recommended that they stay in the house at all times.
Ragdolls are docile, large and affectionate cats that respond well to children and other pets. Ragdoll cats and dogs do especially well together if the dog is well mannered.
Ragdolls are slow to mature physically obtaining full maturity between 3 and 4 years of age. Altered adult males may reach 7 – 10 kgs; females will weigh about 4-6 kgs.
The Ragdolls fur is rabbit-like, medium long with some shedding. Remember, all animals, including humans do shed their fur, so expect some shedding in the spring and fall.
What is nice about the Ragdoll fur is that it is very easy to pick up. It is so soft that it just sits on top of the surface instead of working it’s way into fabric and is therefore easy to pick up. Just a damp hand, or rag will lift most hair off your clothes.
The ragdolls requires little or no routine grooming. During shedding season, be sure to watch for some tangles under the armpits in some Ragdolls.
All ragdolls have beautiful blue eyes.
