Ragdolls are undeniably the best cats ever. Want a dog but don't have room? Get a Ragdoll. Want a floppy amusing kid friendly cat? Get a Ragdoll. Ragdolls are perfect for any age, they are fun and playful, yet gentle and caring. They are definitely people cats, they love people. They are also really docile, so if you get one MAKE SURE YOU KEEP IT INSIDE! I cannot stress this enough! If they get attacked, they WILL NOT fight back. I know this from experience. (RIP Jasper 3). My 2 knew Ragdoll... (read more)

I've been having one myself for 2 years now. Pros: they are dog-like cats that love playing fetch, and hide and seek. They are royal and like following you around the house. I don't know other but my kitty is a floppy cat and like a cuddle in bed. She is a wise cat. When she was still a baby, she knew how to climb up and jump off the cat tree without hurting her joints after I taught her once. Cons: I disagree with others that recommend letting Ragdoll out. You can do it if you are... (read more)

I have had two Ragdoll cats. Both unique in their personalities but both beautiful creatures. Our original cat who is now 9 years old has always been the dominate one. She runs the house but with her playfulness and love she shows through following us around or jumping next to us for a cuddle it's not hard to see why. We often play fight with her but she has never drawn out her claws on me and if anything is to much she will nibble on your hand soft enough to not even leave a mark. She will... (read more)

Pros: Beautiful to look at, Super affectionate, inquisitive, extremely amenable to handling (goes "limp" when held), quirky personality, amazingly soft fur, easy to clip nails, playful and fun Cons: BIG voice! Not really a con for me but when I was researching ragdolls many breed descriptions said they tend to have "quiet, musical voices" My boy is loud and LIKES to converse with us! Personal Experience: My neutered male Bode is a Red point mitted ragdoll who was born on 1/26/12. I have... (read more)

The idea that there are characteristics unique to Ragdolls which makes it best to keep them indoors is a bunch of ridiculous rubbish! I imagine it has something to do with the people wanting to feel less guilty over leaving their pet locked up. My ragdoll (like all my previous cats) goes outside everyday. I have watched him closely and yes they are a little more trusting I suppose - but now with 6 months experience in a quiet outdoor area he is just like any other cat!!! Just keep an eye on...

Hi all, I have a beautiful blue mitted ragdoll named Georgie, he is 8 months old now and a little angel (most of the time) he definatly has his mad moments though when he scouts around the house at 100 miles an hour screaming his head off! Complete nutcase but quite amusing! I too was told they are indoor only cats but he has got a taste for the outside world and loves it, he only goes in the garden, but spends hours out there chasing butterflies and I hate to say it bees and wasps! This has... (read more)

Apollo my beautiful ragdoll kitten is a sweetheart. intend to cat proof the garden soon as he does enjoy playing in garden with my other kitten. I have to admit he is as bold as he is beautiful and fearless enough to walk up to strange dogs and other cats. i would never let him out to roam - anyone could pick him up and not all dogs are friendly....
my other kitten (the same age and a fracton of the size) beats him up when they play fight - Apollo is an extremly gentle giant...not that he... (read more)

We have just bought a 16 week old Ragdoll kitten (Molly-Mae) she is so affectionate, i would highly recommend one, she as a excellent loving nature and is not shy of human affection, if your looking for a loving cat and pillow companion then a Ragdoll is for you.

My Ragdoll kitten is great. I got him at 4 months old and he is a lovebug. He loves to be with our family. He is so gentle with our two children ages 1 and 3. The girls will play with him and harass him a little, and he is totally mellow. He has nipped them, but I don't blame him. He has nipped using his teeth, but we are working on that behavior, and yes he loves to knead with his claws partially out, but if you don't like cat claws trim their nails! His got trimmed and we were going to... (read more)

I am the cat lover in the family, but having seen the last of my Siamiese cats out I didn't think I could face the heartache all over again. 3 months later Teddy cat fell into my arms as a present from a friend at 1 year of age. My husband the dog lover absolutely adores him as he is indeed very dog like, or rather, I think, like a horse with claws. As to grooming, HA HA HA. How do you groom a non-cooperative cat that can twist it's back legs around over the top of it's back whilst... (read more)

I am a total expert on this breed. Our family were the third Ragdoll Cat breeders in England. We won a lot of rosettes for our cats. We had champions and Grand champions in England.
We have sold cats to the Sheik of Doha, who turned up in a stretched limo and two armed guards. He bought two kittens, who (although now are probably a good 15 years old), who eat off gold plates, the lucky lil souls.
we started in the 1980's, and sold up in the mid 1990's to to family reasons. The breed... (read more)

The Ragdoll is a semi longhaired giant of a cat. Be prepared for a male neuter when mature to be in the region of 15-22lbs, female neuters usually around 13-15lb. Breeding girls and stud boys usually weigh less than the neuters. There are three basic patterns, mitted, colourpoint and bicolour and quite a variety of colours now though the "traditional" colours are seal, blue, lilac and chocolate (newer colours are the red and cream, torties & tabbies). All ragdolls must have blue eyes -... (read more)

Ragdoll - These cats are not as pathetic as their breed descriptions suggest. Mine has a great character - loves playing with my other cats - loves being outside, especially if you are there too. Isn't overly floppy like you'd expect - except if he is sleepy and then he'll let you cuddle him like a baby, relaxing so he's in almost any position you put him in.
He's very friendly and quite brave - I've heard that you shouldn't let them outside and I completely disagree with this - my one... (read more)
