Ragdoll Cats

  Many stories surround the origin of the Ragdoll cat's name and habit of adorably going limp in your arms. Most of these stories are actually impossible, such as the story that says it was because of the mother being hit be a car during pregnancy that all the kittens were born to go limp and floppy when handled.

Ragdolls were first developed in California in the 1960s by breeder Ann Baker. She selectively bred cats to include their most appealing characteristics such as docility and gentility. The first Ragdoll was called Josephine.

Ragdolls are semi long haired cats with thick, silky fur and points like those on a Siamese cat. These cats are quite slow maturing- male cats can take about four years to fully develop and their points aren't fully apparent until they are about two.
