The Rogdoll is a cat breed with a color point coat and blue eyes. They are large and muscular semi-longhair car with a soft and silky coat. Developed by American breeder Ann Baker in the 1960s. The Ragdoll cat is a pointed breed, which means that the body is lighter in color than the points(the face,legs,tail and ears). The Ragdoll cat is carefully bred to produce large affectionate animals in three patterns, two with white(mitted and bi-color) and one with no white (colorpoint). The ideal Ragdoll is a well balanced cat, with no exterme features. Altered males will usually top the scale at 15-20 pounds; females are proportionately smaller and usually weight between 10-15 pounds at maturity. Ragdolls are slow-maturing. reaching full coat color at two years, and full size and weight at four.
Ragdoll cats tend to be more interested in humans than some breeds of cats. They are known to run to gteet you at the door, follow you from room to room and generally choose to be where you are. Many Ragdolls have been taught to come when called and play fetch. Thet are gentle cats, and usually play without extending their claws, Ragdolls tend to be floor cats, no jumpers. The Ragdoll's semi long coat is plush and silky, and requires minimal grooming to keep it looking its best. They should be combed with a steel comb on a regular basis to find and remove any loose hair or tangles. Quality coats consist mainly of long,soft guard hairs. Ragdolls,just like all breeds of cats, will shed usually with the change of seasons. The absence of the thick, dense, insulating undercoats results in reduced shedding and matting. In all, Ragdolls are well behaved,and easy to care for prefect for our modern,busy,lifestyles.
There are four patterns:bi-color,van,mitted and colorpoint. Patterns come in six colors:seal,blue,chocolate,lilac,red,and cream. Points may be solid, lynx,tortie,or torbie(tortie and lunx). If you do the math, you can see that there are quite a large number of different combinations possible! CFA accepts bi-color and van patterns, mitted and colorpoints for showing in the full array of color combinations.
