As well as being adorable fluff balls, Ragdolls are reknowned for their friendly, personable nature. More than any other breed, Ragdolls are known for being a cat version of a friendly puppy. They love being around people in general, and in particular their owners, who they will follow around like little fluffy puppy dogs. If you’re lounging around the living room watching Netflix, you can bet that your Ragdoll will be right next to you either asleep on your lap or purring on the sofa. As well as being friendly, Ragdolls tend to be laid-back, relaxed and well behaved. They also don’t mind being picked up, which is a rarity among cats (which I’m sure many of you have learnt to your sorrow!). So you can squish your face into your Ragdoll’s fur to your heart’s content! This author may or may not be guilty of repeat offences!
So we now know Ragdolls are really really cute, and really really friendly. So far they’re perfect, but as we all know nothing is actually perfect. Same with Ragdolls, but their flaw is far from unmanageable. Ragdolls tend to shed quite a lot of fur. Count on many things in your house ending up covered in white fluff, from your clothes to your bed, sofa, and whatever else your fluffy kitty sleeps on. Again this author may or may not have experienced this firsthand! This one flaw definitely pales in comparison to everything else Ragdolls can offer you as a pet.
If you’re looking for a feline friend to bring into your home, you can definitely do a lot worse than bringing in a Ragdoll. Look forward to lovely Sunday afternoons lounging around with a big ball of fluff purring on your lap!
