Are Ragdoll Cats Calm? — 3 Comments

  1. PS. I understand that the original Ragdolls shown for their calm and relaxed behaviour were actually under the influence of drugs,

  2. One of the worst and bloodiest examples of cat on judge violence was witnessed by me in Istanbul and the cat was a Ragdoll. Close behind for violent behaviour at the same show was a an American Curl. I have shown second generation from feral cats who behaved in a very sweet affectionate way at shows. Pedigreed or long domestication does not seem to guarantee good behavior. I currently have 2 recently rescued Turkish Angora kittens from feral parents who are perfectly well behaved. What can you think of a feral kitten that climbs up your leg and perches on your head whilst purring happily? They also sometimes get out of their boudoir and wander among the other cats without any friction or nervousness.

  3. As a former vet assistant with a lot of dealings with all breeds, I’ve had a few Ragdolls try to tear me apart. Most of the Ragdolls have been so laid back and easy to handle. But one can’t take that for granted.
