The ragdoll cat is a large cat with a coat that has moderately long hair. Ragdolls have beautiful blue eyes and soft tails. Their average range of weight is 10 to 16 pounds for males and 8 to 12 pounds for females. They live to be 12 to 15 years on average. Don't think your Ragdoll cat is fat because he or she has a fat pad on their abdomen. This fat pad is natural for all ragdoll cats and it will be present even when they are underweight.
Rag doll cats are known for their gentle nature. They are always careful not to scratch people and they are a perfect cat to have if you have children. They have a soft voice that is rarely irritating. These cats are very into people. They will most likely greet you at the door when you get home and they will follow you wherever you go in your house.
Ragdoll cats love attention and they love human contact. This makes a great pet if you want to spend a lot of time loving on your kitty! (Maybe not as good if you are looking for a more independent pet.)
Many Ragdoll cats enjoy being held like a baby and laying on your lap.
They are also trainable to be walked on a leash.
Another one of the great features of a ragdoll is that they rarely shed or have hairballs. They rarely need any grooming.
The Origin of the Ragdoll Cat
The Ragdoll was first "developed" in 1963 in California. The cat was formed through a combination of free roaming domestic long hair cats of unknown ancestory. The foundation cat of the ragdoll breed was named Josephine. All ragdoll cats descend from Josephine and unknown roaming domestic long hair cats or from Josephine and her son Daddy Warbucks.
The originatory of the ragdoll cat breed was named Ann Baker.
Unpredictable Growth Patterns of the Ragdoll Cat
Ragdoll cats can grow in many different ways. Some grow explosively until their 10th month and stop. Others can actually stop for a year or even two years and then start growing again. A ragdoll cat can still grow up to age four which is much later than most cats.
Feeding Requirements Due To Unusual Growth Patterns
A ragdoll kitten can gain up to 2 pounds in a month during an explosive growth spurt. So it's important not to underfeed your ragdoll. Remember that the pad of fat on their belly is always their even if they are underweight and being underfed. Do not let that lead you to underfeeding your kittens. A healty ragdoll cat should be thick and solid not thin. You should let your ragdoll kittens eat an unlimited amount of food because their growth spurts are unpredictable and if you try and limit their food like you do with other kittens you may be starving them and hurting their growth process.
No Breed Specific Health Problems
The ragdoll cat has no breed specific health problems. Their mortality rate during their growing stages is very low.
Ragdoll cats are easy to live with, friendly, affectionate cats. They are one of the most sought after breeds in the world for a reason.
