More About the Breed

The Ragdoll cat is one of the largest domestic cat breeds. They are a muscular, easy-going and generally undemanding breed originally bred in California from a white longhaired or Persian cat named Josephine.

Josephine had been permanently injured in a car accident. The name for the breed comes from the reported characteristic tendency to go limp when picked up, like a rag doll. Supposedly, Josephine's kittens acted this way, and Ann Baker, the original breeder, attributed this to the injuries to their mother.

Ann Baker told some pretty unbelievable tales about her cats, but the Ragdoll lovers of today only tell great stories about their passion for these furry companions.
