Ragdoll cats whose innocence and sheer beauty will have you shower all your love automatically… At Aden Ragdolls Ontario, Ragdoll cats are just an extension of our loving family. We hate referring to them as pets; we’d rather call them by name just as you call your children. We believe in raising healthy, beautiful, affectionate and social Ragdoll kittens. Ragdoll cats descended from Ann Baker’s cattery in 1960’s are large, muscular, semi longhaired, blue-eyed cats for traditional Ragdolls, and copper eyes color for Solid and Black Ragdoll cats. The docile and floppy nature of the Ragdoll cat is a characteristic thought to be passed down from the Persian and Birman breed. It is also believed that Ragdoll cats were created by ALIENS?

Breed standards describe Ragdoll cat as affectionate, intelligent, relaxed-in temperament, gentle and easy to handle lap loving cats. In general cats have an attitude “when I am ready, I’ll come”, but the Ragdolls we breed have an attitude “where are you going? What are we doing now?” Just as an infant sticks to her mommy. Aaawww!! They are so innocent and heart melting creatures that you can never keep your eyes off them. Their name Ragdoll is coined by their tendency to relax down when picked up. Our Ragdoll Cats will let you know her needs by a quiet musical purr.

A Ragdoll cat is one of the largest domesticated cat breeds with a sturdy body, large frame, and proportionate legs. A fully-grown female weighs from 10 to 15 pounds. Males are comparatively larger, weighing between 15 to 20 pounds or more. Ragdoll Cats are born all white, start maturing in color at about 8-10 weeks and in size at about 3-4 years. They love being caressed all the time, cuddle and play with you anywhere and everywhere. Having their softest and mushiest coat, you just can’t resist touching them.

Ragdoll cats are beauties with brains. They can be easily trained to walk on a lead and good at keeping their claws off people, hence good to play with kids too!!! These beauties have rabbit-like silky soft fur, which sheds lesser as compared to other breeds of cats and needs brushing once a week. They love spending quality time with you inside the four walls of your cozy abode. Being docile and non-aggressive, it is advisable not to let them out with other pets. Their turquoise blue peepers will take you by breath.

Anyone who brings a Ragdoll kitten into a home is bringing an inquisitive, friendly, and very affectionate animal into his or her environment. We highly recommend ragdoll cats for anyone who wants to have the joy of a four-legged pal in the house.

Ragdoll cats come in vivid patters such as Color point, Mitted, BiColor Ragdolls. The recent categories are Lynx, Tortie and Torbie. Color point Ragdolls have darker points as compared to body color, which is lighter. Mitted ones have white chin and ruff, white marks on back legs and feet, white strip on stomach and white mitts on front paws.

The Bicolor Ragdolls also has dark points but also has an inverted V on the mask. A lynx ragdoll shows dark strips in body color and the inside of the nose is brick-colored. A Tortie ragdoll is oddly enough, sex specific, as it appears on females only. Crossbreeding of red and pointed Ragdolls gives Ragdoll cats with Tortie patterns.

Ragdolls come in various exciting colors too. Seal, Chocolate, Blue and Lilac or frost are some originally known colors. Nonetheless, the palette keeps growing with some newer additions of Red, Cream and Rare Solid colors like Black Ragdolls.
