These feline cuties are well known for their big size, characteristic blue eyes and silky fluffy fur.

Native to the United States, are the second most popular breed around the world. Their main characteristics supposedly have been passed down from the Persian and Birman breeds.

Fact File

Ragdoll cats have taken their name by their likeness to go limp when they are being picked up, just like an actual ragdoll.

It takes 3 years for them to reach maturity and when they do they can be three times bigger than most cats. Imagine that!

Some people call ragdolls “puppy – cats” due to behaviors such as following people around and ease at being physically handled.

They come in four patterns (Pointed, Mitted, Bicolour and Lynx) and six different colors (red, seal, chocolate and the corresponding “dilutes”, including blue, lilac, and cream).

Ragdoll Varieties – Simon’s CatRagdolls come in a variety of interesting colour combinations:

Care

Due to their easy going nature is not advised to let the ragdolls outside by themselves. These cats are totally devoted to their owners, they love human company and are great to have around children. Just make sure to show them how to hold them correctly by supporting them with both hands.

If you are away from the house for long periods of time is recommended to have two cats. Some ragdolls tend to get lonely and would benefit from companionship.

Before introducing a new cat into the household a good tip is to put a little talcum powder on their coats which helps covering any unfamiliar smells.

Due to their fluffy coat of fur, a thorough grooming is advised at least twice a week.

A deep litter tray is essential but remember to buy one big enough to fit these beauties.
