People are generally first attracted to Ragdolls because of their beautiful blue eyes and coloring and their
soft silky coat. Once they get to know a Ragdoll they are impressed by their amazing personality.
Ragdolls are extremely loving, laid back, floppy cats. They are often described as "dog-like" because of
how devoted they are to their people. They are not your typical aloof housecats. They will follow you from room to room. They
dislike being left alone and will meet you at the door when you come home.
Ragdolls get along excellently with other pets. I personally raise mine with my two dogs. They all play
together, sleep together, do every everything together. Ragdolls are also extremely friendly to strangers and very good with
kids. They absolutely get along with everything and everyone!
They get the name Ragdoll because when you hold them they just totally relax like a child's floppy rag-doll.
This is great for children who might not always hold a kitten or cat perfectly. Ragdolls will put up with much more without
scratching or biting than an ordinary cat will. Even people who aren't really "cat people" love Ragdolls because of their
sweet laid back nature. More than any other breed of cat, Ragdolls really make a connection with their family.
