Ragdolls are beautiful cats that come in a variety of patterns and colors.
Kittens are born white (with the exception of the nontraditional, they are born with their color.) They develop their color and pattern as they mature, it can take up to 2 years for a Ragdolls to get its full color and up to 3 years for them to reach their full size.

Ragdolls are currently available in the following colors: Seal, Chocolate, Blue, Lilac, and the new flame (Red) and torite. All pointed Ragdolls have blue eyes.

Ragdolls also come in the solid variety, which can include many colors such as black and white and calico.  The solids are TICA SBT registered ragdolls as are the pointed,  however the solids will not have the blue eye of their counterpart pointed Ragdolls, they will have either green or copper eyes.  The solids are not yet accepted in the show ring.

The Ragdolls coat ranges from medium to long with soft rabbit-like fur, that is non-matting and non-shedding.  Ragdolls do not require a lot of grooming however they would never refuse a good brushing.

The personality of the Ragdoll varies with each cat, however here are some of the common traits you can expect from your Ragdoll.  Ragdollls have a very sweet and loving disposition, they often go limp when you hold them.  My Ragdolls are raised with my children, therefore they just love to be around children, they are happy to sit in my daughters doll carriage and go for a stroll. Ragdolls are very affectionate.  They also enjoy playing, you will have many hours of enjoyment just watching them. Ragdolls also do nicely with other pets.

Ragdolls are highly intelligent and can be trained, much like a dog.  Ragdolls easily adapt too new environments.
