What is a Ragdoll Cat?

The Ragdoll has a bunny soft, semi-longhair coat which does not require extensive grooming. Ragdolls are carefully bred to produce healthy, uber-affectionate, large, loving animals.

Ragdoll kittens are born white, acquiring their coloring and coat pattern as they age. Full color development may not be evident until 2-3 years of age.

 

Ragdoll Cats are a POINTED BREED

What does “Pointed” mean?

Pointed means that the body is lighter in color than the points. Points are located in the face, legs, tail and ears.
All Ragdoll cats must be pointed cats with blue eyes to be acknowledged for championship competition. (Note: Rules in the associations change over time, and these rules may change.)

 

THE RAGDOLL COLORS

SEAL POINT:  The body color of the seal point should be an even pale fawn or cream, shading gradually into a lighter color on the belly and chest. Points should be dense, deep seal brown.

COLORS

THE RAGDOLL PATTERNS

SOLID:  dark feet and color visible everywhere on the cat, one solid (point) color without recognizable stripes, spots, ticking, white, or silvering (Currently Angel Girls does not have Solid Ragdolls)

BICOLOR:  This is the Most coveted pattern by people attending CFA Cat Shows and is marked by a facial white upside-down “V” with white legs and white belly.

MITTED:  White coloring appears on the ears, tail, and face mask. All 4 feet are white (front mittens don’t go past ankle).  Back leg white goes all the way up to the heel. Chin MUST be white for shows, and have a stripe of white that extends from the chin all the way down the belly. Color on body, belly, and chest is a shade lighter than the point color.

Note: Some mitted may also have something called a “blaze” present. This is a white marking between the eyes (on the nose). It can be just a little bit of white, or take up most of the face. Two common varieties are the “hour-glass” blaze, and the smallest version, a “diamond” blaze.

LYNX: Tabby markings (ie: stripes) in the point color over the inherent color and pattern of the cat

TORTIE: The basic tortie is a combination of black and red patches in a random manner
