Ragdolls are very placid and loving cats who go to and trust anyone. They enjoy being held like a baby and relaxing in your arms, they will often lie on their back with their legs in the air. In saying that, they are also very active and love to play. The Ragdoll is full of spirit and are also mischievous, but so beautiful that they usually get away with whatever they're into. The Ragdoll are indoor cats, which are happy living totally indoors and are safest when kept indoors. When outside they can wander off, or be harmed as they are very trusting in their nature.
Ragdolls thrive on human companionship, and more often than not will eagerly await their owner to come home, and be sitting at the door when you arrive. They will almost always be in the same room as you, normally at your feet, or on your lap. They love their chins and tummies to be rubbed, and are just so affectionate, you can see how much they cherish the time spent with their owners. Very rarely will they use their claws, it is just not in their nature to do so. Due to their affectionate and loyal disposition they rely heavily on you to provide them with the security and proctection that they need.
In general Ragdolls can be very vocal, and sometimes I find that I'm answering them, thinking that it's our 5 year old calling me, when in fact it's just my Stud Cosmo with his deep rolling meow, looking for us, as he may have woken up in the lounge room and we have since all moved to the kitchen! Most mornings Angel wakes us up because she's hungry, walking on our heads and meowing as loud as she can!
They are an extremely adaptable cat and would suit families, singles and apartment living. They offer excellent companionship and are a semi-long coated, non-matting breed, so they do not require a lot of maintenance; they are placid, easy going cats with a quiet voice. They are playful even into mature years and will chase around balls, and all different sorts of things. As indoor cats they are toilet trained and as such require an indoor litter tray.
Ragdoll Colours Include:
Seal - Dark Brown
Chocolate - Milk Chocolate Brown - this is a dilute of the Seal.
Blue - Slate Grey/Blue
Lilac - Lavender Grey - this is a dilute of the Blue.
Red - Orange
Cream - Pale Cream - this is a dilute of the Red.
Tortie - Patches of colour, because the gene responsible for Red is carried on the female (X) chromosome, torties are always female. When the gene is active on one (X) chromosome, but not present on the other, normal pigment (Seal or Blue) will be formed as the skin cells multiply, resulting in the characteristic patches of colour. Torties are available in all patterns.
Lynx (Tabby) - Have tabby points, pencil lines on their face and white eye liner. Lynx can be found in all Colour Point Patterns, but is most obvious in the darker colours.
Ragdoll Patterns Include:
