Amazing Ragdoll Cat Facts 

Ragdolls get their name from their tendency to go limp when picked up, much like a ragdoll toy.


The first Ragdoll cat was a white longhaired female named Josephine who captivated researchers with her unique relaxed temperament.  

Founding Feline  

Signature blue eyed pointed ragdoll cats have darker fur on their ears, face, legs and tails contrasting a lighter coat on the main body.

Pointed Markings  

Unlike Siamese breed cousins, Ragdolls only occasionally make soft chirps and exclude loud meowing or yowling noises.

Quiet Voices  

Reaching full physical maturity faster than many purebreds, Ragdolls are essentially full grown cats by age 3 versus 5. 

Fast Growing  

Exceedingly people-oriented, ragdolls eagerly greet owners at the door, follow them room to room and learn to play fetch.

Dog-Like Affection 

Weighing up to 20 pounds, these mild-mannered gentle giants take quickly to snuggling in laps for pets, earning them the nickname puppy-cats.
