HISTORY OF THE RAGDOLL CAT
The story of the Ragdoll began with a lady named ANN BAKER, who lived in California.
Ann Baker was a breeder of Persians, her neighbour Mrs Pennels owned a cat called
Blackie (Persian type) who Ann Baker used to mate with her Black Persians.
The mother of Blackie, also owned by Mrs Pennels, was a cat called Josephine
(a blue-eyed white Angora type) with a not very acceptable disposition.
In 1963 Josephine was hit by a car and according to Ann Baker was taken to the University,
instead of the Vets, to be treated, this still remains a mystery, as to why.
(Ann Baker claims that Josephine had been subjected to genetic engineering, altering
her genetic make-up and that of her kittens. She stated that this could not be proven as it
was part of a government programme, subject to secrecy).
It was because of this, that a lot of Ragdoll owners distanced themselves from her and her
Josephine returned home to Mrs Pennels and in her future litters it was recognised by
Ann Baker, that the kittens born after the accident had special qualities, they were
extremely friendly, and became very floppy when picked up, hence the name
It was from these litters that Ann Baker obtained a female kitten named Buckwheat
(Solid Black), Ann's neighbour also kept one of Josephine's kittens, a pointed male
with white mittens, she called him Daddy Warbucks.
Ann Baker also obtained a daughter from Daddy Warbucks and Josephine -
Fugianna (the first Bi-Colour Ragdoll).
It was from these Cats that Ann Baker established the Ragdoll breed.

Ragdoll owners will tell you that they are completely captivated by their Ragdolls'
sweet, loving, layback temperament.
That they will absolutely steal you heart away, and completely infatuate you.
They are perfect companions for the elderley as well as singles and families, they
get along, introduced correctly, with almost anyone and anything.
They are very well suited to small apartments, townhouses, etc as they are totally
INDOOR cats and are perfectly happy to lie around enjoying the luxury and safety
of your and their own home.
They are very much a people cat, wanting to be with you wherever you go, watching
everything you do. (a bit like a puppy dog).
I say to people, If you do not want a cat that absolutely adores you, follows you
everywhere, is under your feet all the time, sleeps on your bed, lies on your paper
work on the computer desk while you are trying to work, to get your attention, waits
outside the shower door for you to finish, wants to know everything that is going on,
THEN A RAGDOLL IS NOT FOR YOU!!!
Your Ragdoll will even want to take you to the bathroom!!! Mine do. LOL
Ragdolls are strictly INDOOR cats that love and depend upon their owners for their
safety, as they do not have a defensive nature, and are unable to protect themselves
against the outside world and all of its dangers.
In return for you supplying them with a warm, caring and safe home, they will give
YOU, their owners, an endless supply of love and affection.
Your life will be filled with a special warmth because of their presence
"DOLLY" a Seal Mitted with a Blaze Female at 6 months of age
The Ragdoll is one of the largest of all domestic cat breeds, with an Aura of Beauty
As adults they range from 6 - 8 kg for the males, sometimes heavier, and 4 - 6 kg for
the females, not reaching full maturity until they are 3 or 4 years of age.
They have a broad, medium sized head, large stunning blue eyes and a medium length
non-matting soft silky coat, which requires very little grooming, but they love nothing
more than lying on your lap and being stroked with the brush, this is very good for
their coats and also is a very good bonding time for both YOU and YOUR RAGDOLL.
Just look at his Captivating Deep Blue Eyes!!!
