If you are looking for ragdoll kittens for sale, check with Cat Breeder clubs. This breed was created in the 1960′s so it’s a very young breed. It is a cross between Persian, Birman and Burmese and they are gorgeous. They are pointed cats like a Siamese. The kittens are born white and develop their color based on the breeding pattern. There are three pattern types and four colors for a true Ragdoll.

‘Colorpoint’, ‘mitted’ and ‘bi-color’ are the three acceptable patterns. The points include the ears, tail, face and feet. Dark brown points and a light tan body would be the ‘colorpoint’. Dark brown points and a lighter body with white paws, feet, stomach, chin and ruff are the ‘mitted’. The ‘bi-colors’ have an inverted v-shape on their face making them look like they have on a Zorro mask. Only their ears and tail have the darker color, the rest of the body is white except for a colored pattern resembling a saddle on their back.

There are four color categories: seal, chocolate, blue and lilac. The seals have the dark brown points with a light tan body, similar to the Siamese. The chocolates have milk chocolate points and ivory bodies. The blues have dark gray points and a pale gray colored body. The lilacs have pinkish gray points and a wintry white body.

Ragdolls are bred to produce large animals. Neutered males will end up weighing in at 15 or 20 pounds and the females usually are 5 pounds less than them. All of them have captivating blue eyes.

They are affectionate and laid back. They tend to need interaction with humans. They have been known to greet their owners at the door and can be taken for walks outside in a harness. They do not have the instinct to defend themselves so they cannot be an outside cat. They learn quickly and adjust well to other animals.

Their fur resembles that of a rabbit. It is thick and plush but needs little maintenance. Ragdolls got their name because they tend to go limp when you pick them up. They are not aggressive so pick them up and start brushing them they will only love you more for it.

The Ragdoll Fanciers’ Club International was created to represent the breed. They set guidelines for breeders and one of the guidelines is that if you wish to show them, never cross breed them. They have become very well recognized and have won ‘Best of Breed’ quite a few times. Ragdoll kittens for sale is an invitation to breed a great cat and have a beautiful, attentive companion in your life.
