Ragdolls have the bluest eyes. Simply a most heavenly shade of blue you have ever seen.
Ragdoll, Seal mitted
The Ragdoll is an American cat breed with a medium-length to long, silky, rabbit-like coat. It is best known for its docile and placid temperament and affectionate nature. Ragdolls have a sturdy body with a large frame, proportionate legs, and a soft coat with Siamese-style points.
Ragdolls come in 6 different colors – seal, chocolate, flame, and “dilutes” blue, lilac and cream. There are three different patterns: Pointed (nose, ears, tail and paws in the specific colors & no white), Mitted – white paws, chin and tummy, with or without a blaze (a white line on the face), and Bicolor—white legs, white inverted ‘V’ on the face, white tummy and often white patches on the back. Variations include a three-color “tortie-point” (mottled seal or blue with red present) and lynx (striped pattern on tail, face and points) which can be found in all 3 patterns.
Ragdolls are slow maturing cats; reaching full coat color at two years of age and full size and weight at four years.
