TICA and CFA Certifications
You may have seen some breeders saying they are TICA and CFA certified. This is an extra stamp of approval that they registered their cats and are maintaining a high standard.
Here’s what these organizations mean:
The International Cat Association (TICA) is the world’s first and largest all-breed cat registry.
In 1967, a small group of dedicated cat lovers met to form a small organization. They shared their love of cats, and it wasn’t long before they were planning for their first show in 1968 in the city of Chicago, Illinois.
The Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) is a non-profit organization of cat fanciers who are dedicated to the study, preservation, and promotion of felines.
This organization has a membership of over 165,000 people worldwide who own purebred cats or subscribe to their periodicals.
What Is the Average Price of a Ragdoll?
The average price of a Ragdoll cat depends on where you buy it, how old it is, and if it’s pedigree. For example, if you buy one from a breeder in California, then the cost for just the kitten will be around $1,000.
I looked into a couple of breeders in Nevada and saw they were charging around $800-$1,200 for a kitten. While pedigree Ragdolls can cost several thousand dollars more.
Are Ragdoll Cats High Maintenance?
The answer is no, not really. Unless you want a show standard cat, of course.
Most owners consider ragdolls to be a low maintenance cat. Although, I do have to say that there is more grooming involved than with a regular shorthaired cat.
Generally speaking; Ragdolls have very silky coats and have long hair that will require combing/brushing 2-3 times a week.
They also require 12 hours of daylight – this is so they can stimulate their daytime “feed me!” hunting instincts by chasing things in the house or outside.
Let’s not forget that they are cats though. A little brushing, plenty of food, some playtime, and you’ll have a happy cat on your hands.
Colors and Coat Patterns of Ragdolls
The long and luxurious coat of the Ragdoll is a deep, soft, thick fur that comes in all colors. The breed standard for Ragdolls states that “Their coats are dense with a medium length undercoat, giving them a plush feel”.
The main recognized colors are:
The coat patterns of Ragdolls are unique and can be determined by the color combination. They are typically grouped by four patterns as follows:
Bicolor Ragdolls – White fur on the head, legs, chest, tail, and feet with any other color anywhere else on the body.
Colorprints – These are bicolors with patterns consisting of both black and white stripes.
Mitted Ragdolls – These have patches of white all over their body with four “mittens” or big paws that are completely covered with a solid color to create contrast.
Bicolor Ragdolls – These have only small amounts of white on some parts of their body, such as paws or head. This pattern is found in about 75% to 80% percent of all Ragdolls.
Do Ragdolls Make Good Pets?
Absolutely, Ragdolls are awesome pets!
One thing – you will be amazed at their size and weight. Ragdolls are a large breed, with males weighing between 15-20 pounds and females being between 12-18 pounds.
They are known to be laid back and gentle giants. These cats are great for families with older children because of the large size, and hardiness.
Many people do enjoy the friendly affectionate nature that these cats possess as well as the large size that keeps them warm.
As kittens, they are a lot of fun and really enjoy playtime. As they age, you’ll see their character coming out and appreciate how affectionate they are.
