Ragdolls were bred in the 1960's by Anne Baker, in Riverdale, California. She had a long haired white female, name Josephine. A seal mitted male was the father. The most striking feature of the kittens was their sweet temperament. The Ragdoll is a relaxed, happy cat.
Ragdolls can grow to be 20 pounds (male) and 15 pounds females. They have a long body with a heavy bone structure. Their silky coat (it feels like a rabbit fur) is quite easy to groom. You should brush it once a week. Their coat is pointed and comes in three patterns: bicolor, colorpoint and mitted. All Ragdolls have blue eyes and will bring you companionship and peace.
