Ragdoll Cat Colors and Personality

by Rob on November 27, 2010

Ragdoll cats are available in three patterns: colorpoint, bicolor, and mitted varieties. The colorpoint variety has a different color on the points than the rest of their body. Body color is typically light gray, milky white, or fawn. Point colors include blue, chocolate, lilac, and seal. Ragdoll cats are “pointed” because they have these colors on their faces, ears, feet, and tails.

Bicolor Ragdolls come in the blue, chocolate, lilac and seal varieties. These are colorpoint cats with an inverted “V” pattern on their faces. Bicolors have a white ruff, white feet and legs and have patches of white fur elsewhere on their bodies. The mitted varieties get the name from the white mittens on their front paws. Mitted Ragdolls have white fur on their hind legs up to their mid-thigh and a white underside.

Ragdoll Personality

Ragdolls are very sweet natured animals. They exhibit many dog-like behaviors; your Ragdoll cat will run to the door to greet you upon returning home and will follow you from room to room in your home. Ragdoll cats are very docile by nature. Some of the misconceptions started by Ann Baker stem from this laid back nature. Ragdoll cats are non-aggressive to a fault. The will not defend themselves when provoked by another animals or children. This does not mean they will not run away; however, their lack of aggression requires that Ragdoll owners keep their cats indoors at all times.

Ragdoll cats are very much into their humans and do not exhibit the typical independent attitude cats are generally known for. Ragdoll cats have great personalities and make wonderful pets.

I have the mitted ragdoll ..How do I break her from climing the furniture. She only does it if I’m in the room. I if I leave she will follow. She is very playful and antagonizes my 9 year old persian. What can I do to help the situation.

I, too, have mitted ragdoll who climbs doorframes and antagonizes my other older cats. He follows me everywhere, doesn’t like to snuggle up much is causing some havoc. I’d like to keep him from being aggressive toward the older cats.

my mitted Ragdoll is a dedicated floor cat. She jumps onto chairs to get onto the table, and if the doggie stairs are by the dog couch for my old folks, she uses them to go and cuddle with the dogs. Ditto for the bed; she jumps onto the bench at the end of the bed before getting on the bed, and the reverse for getting off.

I don’t have mice, but my monster goes downstairs and collects spiders… she brings them upstairs to play with …. she’s never killed one and I guess she can be considered a catch and release hunter. LOL
