A ragdoll always has blue eyes! They may vary in brightness. The eyes are large and oval. Ragdolls have a muscular and long body, with a medium-sized broad head. The nose is straight, with a bend of the upper third. The ears are medium-sized and wide, but a slightly round top. There should be a good, flat distance between the ears. The hind legs are slightly longer than the forelegs and the paws are large and round with tufts between the toes. The tail is long and bushy. It must be able to reach the cat's shoulder blades when lying on its back. The coat is medium to long and silky without undercoat. It should feel cold. The coat is longest on the abdomen, chest, neck and hind legs, so it can form a collar.
The approved colors are: Brown, blue, chocolate, purple, red and tabby

The Ragdoll cat breed is a special breed, with a slightly different background history. Unlike many other cat breeds that have a long and detailed background history, the ragdoll cat has a relatively simple history.
The Ragdoll cat, unlike many other cats that can be dated to have existed for hundreds of years, can only be dated back to the 1960s. The first litter of ragdoll kittens was born in California in the early 60's to a woman named Ann Baker.
It was almost a coincidence that the ragdoll breed came into being when her white long-haired cat, Josephine, gave birth to kittens. One of Josephine's kittens was mated with the famous breed holy burma, and the result is the breed we know today as ragdoll.
Sources say she apparently tried to hide the real origin of the cat breed as it rose wildly in popularity, and came up with wild fictional stories about the origins of the ragdoll cat. She should also have invented her own registration system so that the cat breed should be subject to strict standards.
Ann Baker was incredibly strict as to who was allowed to buy her kittens. She even forbade her buyers to mate their new cat unless they had a special license that ordered them to follow her breeding plans. That way, she could control the spread and sincerity of the breed.
It was only after a lawsuit against Ann Baker, in which a man named Denny Dayton, broke out and began breeding ragdoll cats outside of Ann Baker's license that the breed was spread to the entire world. The first ragdoll cat was recognized and registered in 1965 under the name Raggedy Ann.
In Denmark, we saw the first Danish breeding of ragdoll cats in the late 1990s. Since then, the cat breed has become one of the most popular cat breeds we have.

Ragdoll is English and means in Danish, Cloth Doll. Ragdoll cats behave as the name indicates when picking them up. They completely relax all the muscles in the body, causing them to hang in the arms like a rag doll. The sloppy condition is simply a breed feature most of all ragdoll cats have in common. It is often referred to as one of the most loving cat breeds in existence. It's a wash real pet cat.
The ragdoll cat follows you from room to room, and wants to play and pick things up for you when you throw them. The Ragdoll cat breed is a cat breed that can sometimes be more reminiscent of a dog than a cat.
Ragdoll katten har mange egenskaber, som oftest kun tilskrives hunde. For eksempel vil ragdoll katten komme løbende ud til døren for at tage imod dig, når du kommer hjem. De vil følge dig over alt i huset og kræve din opmærksomhed som en lille, legesyg hvalp. Katteracen elsker at lege med legetøj. Det er en kat, som er alt andet end selvstændig. Ragdolls kræver meget opmærksomhed og kærlighed, så hvis du gerne vil have en kat fordi du ikke har tid til en hund, så er det ikke ragdoll racen du skal anskaffe dig.
The Ragdoll breed has a wonderful nickname, namely "the gentle giants".
Here again reference is made to their great size, but to that extent also their gentle minds. The Ragdoll breed is a cat breed that possesses a gentle and social temperament. Ragdoll is one of the cat breeds that is the exception, which confirms the rule when it comes to cats are often seen as being antisocial and independent. Because if there's anything ragdoll cats are NOT, then it's antisocial. The Ragdoll cat is an incredibly sociable cat breed and loves to be around its people. It is a breed that fully lives up to its reputation as real pet cats. Most ragdoll cats love to be held like one would hold a small baby. They can lie on your back in your arms and be rocked quietly back and forth as long as you allow it. Ragdoll is a cat breed that is not suitable as a free-running outdoor cat. The breed thrives best as an indoor cat, but with access to get outside once in a while.
Another reason why the ragdoll cat thrives best as an indoor cat is due to the very poorly developed fighting skills. Ragdoll cats have been bred as indoor cats and show cats all their lives, and therefore do not have a single "fighting gene" in their DNA. Despite their size and the fact that they are far larger than most cats, they simply would not be able to cope if a "street cat" decided to take up the fight against the white elegant and gentle giant. That said, getting a ragdoll into your home will be a great decision for your family. The gentle and calm personality of the cat breed makes them perfect as family cats and especially for families with children. Ragdolls can also easily live with other domestic animals.
