INFORMATION ABOUT THE RAGDOLL BREED

PAGE UPDATED 21st March 2022

 

 

The origin of the Ragdoll dates back to 1960 when a white female Persian was mated with a male Birman. 

The Ragdoll has a diminished instinct to defend itself and is therefore an ideal indoor cat. This breed is popular amongst cat lovers that live in units. However, RAGGIES recommend that all cats are kept within the bounds of their owner's property. 

The group of kittens on the right are a itter of 5 males- 2 seal bi-colour (lying down) and 3 seal colourpoint (standing). Bred by RAGGIES Cattery. Weren't they brilliant, posing as they did for this photo? 

The temperament is pretty lay-back!*- Hence their name- "Ragdoll." Eyes are blue and coat is semi-longhair with points on their ears, tail, face and legs. A Ragdoll's fur is silky in texture (Angora) and requires a minimum amount of grooming. The main colours are Seal, Chocolate, Lilac and Blue. Patterns are Colourpoint, Mitted and Bi-colour.

GENDER.

The gender of a Ragdoll makes little difference when they are sterilised prior to 6 months of age. There is almost no difference in behaviour or affection. Males will not spray as their equipment has not been "enabled" and they do not have an urge to mark their territory ! Many people ask for a female kitten under the mistaken belief that they are more affectionate. This is incorrect. We have found that in most cases there will be no difference. It must be said though that male kittens will grow larger than females. This of course means that there will be more cat to cuddle! We would respectfully request that prospective buyers do not leave all our males kittens wondering why nobody loves them!

 

In our experience  Ragdolls are not particularly large. The average weight of our adults is 4kg. Of course, you can make a Ragdoll larger by over feeding but generally we don't believe that they are large cats. At least ours aren't!

RAGGIES kittens go to their new owners at 12 or 13 weeks old, having had two vaccinations . They will have also have been wormed and micro-chipped (as well as being sterilised). All kittens are registered with the F.C.C.of W.A. as pedigree animals.
