Ragdolls continue to grow and the coloring of their fur continues to develop until they are about three or four years old. Female Ragdolls typically weigh about 10 to 15 pounds, and males can weigh over 20 pounds – they are among the largest domestic cats!

According to the Cat Fan Association standard, Ragdolls eligible for the show must have a large, modified wedge-shaped head with a slightly rounded muzzle. Their eyes are oval and bright blue, and their medium-sized ears should be tilted forward and rounded at the tip. Its body is massive and heavy, and its hind legs are longer than the front ones. Its legs are round with tufts of hair and its tail should be completely covered with hair.

The personality of the Ragdoll Cats
As mentioned above, Ragdolls are known to relax in the arms of someone holding them, even when they are held on their back like a baby. They have a love for their owners that is normally associated with dogs, and they like to greet them at the door, follow them around the house, and hug them when they sit down.

Although Ragdolls are known for their docility, that doesn’t mean they don’t like to play. Ragdolls enjoy participating in family activities and playing with a variety of puzzles and toys. Some owners have even managed to train them to “look for” toys. They learn quickly and respond well to praise and treats, so they can learn a lot of tricks or be trained to exhibit good behavior and discourage unwanted behavior.

Ragdolls are good pets for families with children because they are very social, yet relaxed. They rarely extend their claws when playing and will tolerate activities such as dressing up or playing “house” with a child! Ragdolls generally get along well with dogs, although introductions to children and other pets should be considered and controlled. Teach children how to properly hold a Ragdoll (one arm under the front legs and the other holding the back legs), and give the animals time to get used to each other before showing them around the house together.
