Ragdoll cats are recognized not only for their beauty but also for their amazing personality. They are wonderful indoor cats that are peaceful, playful, laid-back, and incredibly affectionate. Ragdoll kittens get along well with kids and other pets since they are placid, and they are one of the best cat breeds for people with allergies.

Ragdoll Kittens: About the Breed
Over 50 years ago, the Ragdoll Cat was created by merging the best qualities of numerous breeds such as the Burmese and Persian. The kittens with the perfect personality and fur coats were then bred to create the first Ragdoll lines.
We produced a cat that loves humans and has a silky-smooth non-matting coat through meticulous selective breeding.
Signs of Healthy Ragdoll Kittens
Your kitten should not only come from healthy lines but also be nurtured in an atmosphere in which they are socialized with people, children, dogs, other cats, and plenty of movement. At Midwest Ragdolls, our kittens are properly socialized, and we follow and recommend key best practices for bringing home your Ragdoll kitten to ensure a healthy transition to your home.
Our mating cats are TICA registered, have had their DNA tested for heart problems, and/or had an ultrasound done by a cardiologist. They have also had their kidneys checked and are FeLV, FIV, and FIP negative. We also monitor their BUN/Creatinine and BNP levels yearly. These are all common health problems in cats of all breeds; however, their occurrence is lower in ragdolls.
Ragdoll Kitten Varieties
Let us take a look at the varieties of ragdoll kittens you can find.
- Traditional ragdoll kitten colors: Traditional ragdolls are white cats with a color on their points, which is the face, ears, tail, and feet. Usually, the color is seal or blue, but these colors can be diluted or concentrated to a shade of lilac or chocolate. They can also have varying degrees of striping. Finally, they can have a gene called the white spotting factor, which places patches of white on specific locations on the cat’s body – usually the feet (mitted) and the face (bicolor).
- Non-traditional colors: Non-traditional ragdolls are traceable back to the original ragdoll cats. However, they are quite rare, which means these ragdoll kittens are available at a higher price point. They include the minks and the solids. Non-traditional colors include seal and blue.
Seal vs. Blue Ragdoll Kittens
Seal point ragdoll kittens are white with shades of brown on their points (face, ears, tail, and feet). The shade of brown and the pattern depend on the type of Seal ragdoll.
Blue point ragdoll kittens are white with shades of grey on their points. As with Seal ragdolls, the shade and pattern of the grey color depend on the type of blue ragdoll.
You can find the following varieties and patterns in both seal and blue ragdoll cats:
- Point: Also known as colorpoint, these cats have a deep, rich brown or grey shade that is concentrated on their extremities.
- Mitted: Similar to color points, these are a rich shade of brown or grey on their points and have literal white mitts and chin.
- Bicolor: These ragdoll cats are brown or grey with white legs, a white inverted “V” on their face, and a white abdomen.
- Lynx: ‘Lynx’ refers to a striped pattern. Lynx ragdolls will have stripes of brown or grey, usually a lighter shade, across their bodies.
- Mink: Mink ragdoll kittens have a dark brown or grey color on their body and even darker points. They also have a more plush coat.
