Welcome to Spring! Fall in Love!
Traditional Ragdolls are born completely white and start slowly getting their color at about 1 week of age and do not reach full color until between 3 and 4 years of age.
Traditional Ragdoll Colors: Seal; Blue; Chocolate; Lilac; Red; Cream; Seal Torti; Chocolate Tortie; Blue Tortie / Blue Cream; and Lilac Tortie / Lilac Cream .
Minks have inherited one Burmese gene from one parent which gives them color at birth.The Minks have jbherrited one Burmese hebe from one parent, which gives them color at birth. The Mink Ragdoll is rare and is a bloodline that can be traced back to the first Ragdoll cats bred by Ann Baker.
They are rare because only certain breeders have minks. When a litter is born, only 50% will be minks; the other 50% will be traditionals. They’re called “Minks” because their eye catching coat is even smoother than the coat of the traditional Ragdolls — the mink’s fur actually feels like a lady’s mink stole, and their tail is often extremely plush. Mink Ragdoll kittens are born with color. The point color of the mink is much softer, richer and darker than the point color of the traditional Ragdoll. Minks come in all the standard colors of chocolate, lilac, flame, cream, tortie and blue/cream.
Mink Ragdolls have Aqua colored eyes by the time they are 12 weeks old. Aqua eyes can vary from blue with just a small hint of green to almost fully green eyes but the most common is a very even blue green.
A Sepia is achieved by mating two minks together.
Sepias have inherited two Burmese genes, one from each parent. Their coat is twice as thick as their Mink sibling. Sepia Ragdolls have the thickest, plushest, and softest coats of all of the pointed Ragdolls. They are considerably darker coated than their mink Ragdoll siblings.
Sepia Ragdolls can have green, gold, blue, aqua blue, or a rainbow of other eye colors.
Ragdolls are known for their sweet and gentle temperament. They are calm, sociable, and affectionate without being demanding. They are extremely loyal. They will follow you around the house, wait for you by the door until you come home, and sit with you while you work on your computer. Ragdolls love screen time!
Ragdolls are known for their beautiful blue eyes and their flop when you pick them up. They make great snuggle partners! They will grow to be around 20 pounds and live 15-20 years of age. They are large boned and large muscled. It is important to have a quality food that supports joint and bone health, as well as their skin and beautiful hair.
Even though they have long hair, they shed less than many short-haired cats. They do not have and undercoat, making them a low allergen cat. There is no such thing as a hypoallergenic cat. They are excellent groomers, though it is good to do the occasional brushing.
They love to play. They carry things in their mouths. Little pompoms are great. Throw one and they will fetch like a dog. They enjoy the cat teasers. And did I mention they love screen time? They love the YouTube videos of birds, squirrels, etc. They love the cat apps on the phones. If the family is watching a movie together, your Ragdoll will be right with you.
Ragdolls are vocal. We have one that is a tattle-tale. Any time something is out of place, if another pet has done something wrong, Cashmere is sure to be vocal about it.
Ragdolls are tolerant to children and other animals. We have dogs and cats together in our home with no issues.
Common health problems that appear in Ragdolls cats include:
· Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (heart disease)
· Bladder stones
· Feline infectious peritonitis
· Feline mucopolysaccharidosis (a disease that can cause eye problems, joint difficulties or paralysis)
