Character

The name “ragdoll” translates as “rag doll”: the cat was so named because of the extraordinary humility observed by the first breeders of this charming breed. This is an excellent pet, as it is a sociable and very tolerant cat. Ragdolls usually do not meow, but make weak and gentle sounds.

These cats are quiet, discreet and intelligent. These are ideal qualities for those who are looking for a cat to devote to her a hug and affection. Because of their overly relaxed behavior, there is a myth that ragdolls are resistant to pain, but this is not true.

Care features
Fluffy cat

Watch carefully for their behavior, food intake and physical health: these cats are very gentle.

It is important to regularly comb Ragdolls, so that their wool is not tangled. Ragdoll has a medium-sized silky coat with a soft texture that is easy to care for. Use a stainless steel comb to comb the cat once or twice a week to prevent wool from tangling. Brush your pet gently, and when the cat gets used, it will enjoy the process. Ragdoll wool sheds, but not excessively.

Requires regular haircut claws and ear cleaning. Trim the claws as needed, about twice a month. Cats are prone to periodontal disease, so it is important to brush your teeth at home with a pet-approved pet paste paste and plan trips to the vet as needed.

Health
Ragdolls have a lifespan of about 10 years. These are relatively healthy cats, although digestion problems such as trichobezoar (hair balls in the stomach) can occur due to the semi-long size of the coat.

The most common diseases affecting ragdolls are:

Urinary problems (which may be related to the kidney or ureter);
Polycystic kidney disease;
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Endogamy is the most serious problem of this breed of cats, as about half of the genes of all ragdolls come from the sole founder Daddy Warbax.
