Ragdolls can be traced back to California in the 1960s, when Ann Baker developed this laid-back breed of cats. Ragdolls are famed for their affectionate and relaxed behavior. In short, these playful pets make the ideal feline companion for all members of your family, both young and old. The name “Ragdoll” derives from their calm demeanor. They have a natural tendency to lay in your lap, and they can be picked up without resistance. Besides their delightful nature, these beautiful big cats stand out from other breeds due to their silky coats and piercing blue eyes. The Ragdolls come in four colors: seal, chocolate, blue and lilac, as well as three divisions: solid/colorpoint, mitted and bicolor.
