These lovely cats are balanced with no features standing out as extreme. Ragdoll cats can be patterned in six basic colors, which are cream, red, lilac, chocolate, blue, and seal. Their patterning often includes darkened points, similar to a Siamese, but they often have white under bodies, chest, and face markings. The coloring called “mitted” has white feet. The ragdoll cat coloring called “van” is solid creamy white with just the tip of the points darkened.
In addition to being beautiful, ragdoll cats are also sweet natured, and get along with the elderly and with children. They love people and will follow them and sleep with them. Ragdoll cats groom their own silky coats, but occasionally need some gentle help from a human with a steel comb. Ragdoll cats don't shed much and are lovely pets to have around.
