Ragdolls are large, docile, loving cats that adore their humans. Their nickname is known as a “puppy-cat” as they have a lot of dog-like qualities. Their medium to long haired fur is silky, bunny-like fur that has minimal shedding, is non-matting and requires very little grooming. Ragdolls don’t fully mature in weight and color until they reach 3 to 4 years old with neutered males possibly reaching up to 20 pounds or more and females about 5 pounds less. Ragdolls are a quiet cat with a soft voice and are very compatible for families with children and other pets. Since they are non-aggressive, docile cats, they will not protect themselves against predators and therefore need to be indoor cats only. Because of their dog-like qualities, they will greet you at the door and can be taught tricks like fetch and sit pretty. They like to be around their humans and will follow you around the house or just hang out wherever you are.
Ragdoll cat colors are Blue, Seal, Chocolate, Lilac, Red & Cream. Ragdoll cat patterns are Mitted (may have a white Blaze), bicolor and colorpoint. Ragdolls cats may also have a lynx pattern. A tortie Ragdoll cat is mottled with red and/or cream on their point color. A torbie Ragdoll cat is mottled with red and/or cream and also has lynx striping
