The Ragdoll Cat
The Ragdoll cat is considered a newer breed of cat. The breed was designed by Ann Baker in the 1960's.
The Ragdoll cat has remarkable blue eyes, an angelic face, and large body w/ a plush silky coat and a fanning tail.
The Ragdoll's large stature is defined by heavy boning, and musculature that allow the breed to be sturdy - yet, surprisingly,
when held, Ragdolls will completely melt or "go limp" within their owner's arms. This is a physical sign of
their trusting & docile nature, and an attribute that makes them very unique and sought offer.
I love this breed and could continue for days about their qualities, however, when you bring
your kitten/cat home you will discover for yourself many delightful qualities not common to all cats.
These attributes are synonymous with the Ragdoll cat:
floppy, docile, sweet, large, fluffy, dazzling, puppy-like, loyal, affectionate, clever, sociable, curious, playful.
