In terms of ease of ownership, people of differing preferences may find the right balance in the ragdoll breed. The cats’ sociable nature puts a lid on mind games. They could be pretty ornery and loyal, following their humans around instead of wandering off-base and jumping on walls, which is great for those with an active lifestyle. Those who enjoy grooming their pets will find Ragdolls willing participants. These typical furballs and their silky hairs provide comfort and Instagram-ready poses.

According to expert Ragdoll cat breeder Jennifer Creed, who is also a veterinarian, the breed was the product of a Californian’s efforts at interbreeding the best three known breeds of cats—Persians, Bermans, and Burmese. Ann Baker in the 1960s is credited for birthing this breed whose most distinct feature, the ability to go limp like a ragdoll when held in one’s arms, has been a unique selling point.

Ms. Creed is one of the best breeders of Ragdolls, her T.C.A Supreme Cattery of Excellence receiving an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. This accreditation is mostly due to the thoroughness of attention her cattery gives to its kittens. The cats are checked regularly for physical health and parasites. The cattery also follows the recommendations of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Association of Feline Practitioners to produce the healthiest kittens.
The responsibilities of keeping Ragdoll cats are no more thorough than those for keeping regular pets. Visit Ms. Creed’s Facebook page for inquiries about procuring kittens and caring for them.
