Ragdoll cats are affectionate, calm, and have a very unflappable character. They are sociable and love to be in the company of their owners and guests.
The breed’s founder is a cat breeder from California, Ann Baker. In the early 1960s, she crossed a white Angora cat, distinguished by a calm and affectionate temper, and a cat with a Burmese phenotype. The selection of kittens for breeding was not only in appearance but also in character: the goal was to bring out incredibly gentle, tame cats. The breed quickly gained recognition and was officially registered in 1965.
The main characteristic of ragdolls is the desire to be with a person. Without communication, they are sad and even sick. But one should not think that Ragdolls have neither personality nor desires of their own. Like other cats, they need time to get used to a new person and trust him completely. And no matter how relaxed the kitten is on your lap, a fly that has flown into the room or a ball that has rolled out can attract the kitty’s attention. Like most cats, Ragdolls become more phlegmatic with age and spend time with their owner with even greater pleasure.
The breed belongs to the semi-longhair category, but care for their coat does not cause much trouble. Animals are hygienic, and their hair rarely falls into tangles. However, combing is needed 1-2 times a week (which is usually very fond of these affectionate cats). It is also necessary to inspect and clean the eyes and ears.
Ragdolls usually like to eat, but genetically they are not prone to gaining excess weight. It is necessary to remember that spayed animals should receive slightly more exercise. Because these cats are slow growing, they need more vitamins, minerals, and protein to complete their skeletal development. When choosing the type of food, the type of prepared food, the necessary additives, and the correct calculation of the portion size, it is better to consult with a veterinarian or breeder.
