The Ragdoll Cat is calm and trusty and these characteristics make them ideal for homes that have children and elderly people. These are cats with fur that is semi long, and their name is due to their muscle laxity that manifest when you take them in your arms. The males can weigh up to 5 and 9 kg, while the females can weigh about 3 to 5 kg. They grow slowly and reach they full size, when they are three years old. The color of their coat becomes darker by age 2 or 3.
It is important to point out that this race grows in stages, first the cat becomes long and then wider. Also they have a little belly in the lower abdomen which is very characteristic of this race. This does not implies that the cats need to be on a diet.
This cat is strictly an indoor cat. This means that he/she would be very happy in your home (apartment, house?) The fact that they are inside the home makes them very happy because the closer to people the better they are. This does not mean that the cat will not be happy with an occasional outing to enjoy the fresh air. This outing needs to be under supervision to assure that the cat will not get lost, or be harm.
