Colors and Patterns
Colors can be seal point,blue point, chocalate point, lilac point in bi or parti-color. The eyes are blue.
This soft bodied cat is heavy , super docile , non-agressive, with a sweet temperment.It gives the impression of a bundle of rags when lifted.
Bathing is not really necessary if regular grooming is done. It may be beneficial to give your ragdoll a bath a couple times of times each 3 months, to clean the coat if really dirty or if they have gotten into something that cannot be brushed out.Make sure that you use a shampoo and conditioner that is formulated especially for cats, as regular human products may be harmful to your ragdoll.
Declawing a cat is a controversial subject, and one that brings many differentopimions. I generally don't recommend declawing a ragdoll unless it will help with safety within a husehold, specifically with children. Clipping the claws can be done on a regular basis to avoid damage to your furniture or other items in the house, so if that is your only reason for declawing the cat, your decision should be weighed carefully because it is not reversable. Keep in mind that if a ragdoll cat is declawed, it should be limited in it's exposure to the outside world. Without front claws, a ragdoll doesn't have much of a defense against other animals or threats that it might encounter.
The litterbox should be kept in a fairly secluded area to allow for privacy, but not so out of the way that it is difficult to acess for cleaning. Usually a laundry room or other spare room serves as a good location. I recommend scooping out the inside of the box at least once a day, and actually replacing the litter weekly. If you have more than one cat, then it may be necessary to clean the box twice a day, morning and night for example.Ther are many different brands and types of litter out there, it is just a matter of preference. The main thing is to find something that your cat will use, is easy to keep clean and affordable for your budget.
you should take your ragdoll to a vet on a regular basis according to what they recommend. You will want to get vaccination shots and any other treatments that will keep your cat healthyand safe.
Fresh food and water is an absolute necessity for your ragdoll. It i svery important that you get the best cat food that agree's with your cat.
