The "Ragdoll" is a large, docile cat, that gets its unusual name from its willingness to relax and go limp like a rag doll when picked up. Ragdolls have a medium to long non-matting coat that has a soft texture like rabbit fur. They are known for their laid back termperament that makes them very easy going, affectionate, playful and sociable. They are very people oriented and comfortable around groups of people. Ragdolls are known for their broad chests and large hindquarters, they do not reach full maturity until between 3 to 4 years. Females are smaller than males, weighing about 10-15 pounds on average. Males weigh an average of 12-20 pounds as adults.

A Ragdoll makes an excellant companion if you are looking for a non-agressive cat that loves to be around people, and is very placid. If you are one of those people who love the look of a long haired cat, but don't want the constant grooming associated with some breeds, then a Ragdoll would make a good choice.

The perfect cat tree for a Ragdoll would be any of the medium or large trees shown on our website ( that have a minimum leaf size of 10 inches by 16 inches. These leaves are contoured to "snuggle" your cat, have an extra layer of padding, and are lined with our thermal layer to retain the cat's body heat. With these "special comfort zones" there will never be a question as to where your cat is. Check out the full line of quality cat furniture on our website.
