Ragdoll cats are large well-balanced cats with no extreme features. The head forms a broad equilateral triangle, modified by a gentle rounded muzzle. Their bodies form a long rectangle, are broad and solid with “medium to heavy” bone structure. They have long legs and a long well plumed tail.
Loving, placid and easy going and as such they make wonderful house or apartment cats. They are intelligent and can easily be trained. They have a unique temperament, usually sweet and docile – and are not fighters by nature.
