   A Breed Apart

 

From the beginning, RagaMuffin breeders have faced the challenge of gaining acceptance for their cats as a distinct breed, despite their common origins with Ragdolls. The patterns that form so important a part of the Ragdoll standard receive little emphasis from RagaMuffin breeders. They accept every color and pattern, with or without white. But the differences go deeper than that. The RagaMuffin has a distinct head shape. Rather than having a flat plane between the ears, the skull has a slight dome. The RagaMuffin has a shorter nose than the Ragdoll, and walnut-shaped eyes rather than oval. While the Ragdoll profile exhibits a gentle curve with the final segment straight, the RagaMuffin standard requires an obvious nose dip or scoop. RagaMuffin breeders aim to produce a rounded, more heavily boned cat.

 

 

 
     
 

Appearance - RagaMuffins are large, muscular, heavy cats that do not reach full maturity until approximately 4 years old. Females can be substantially smaller than males. The look of the body is rectangular, with broad chest and powerful shoulders supporting a short neck. This muscular and fit cat often has a fatty pad in the lower abdomen. The head is a very broad with a rounded forehead and obvious nose scoop. Large, walnut shaped eyes give a sweet appearance. These semi- longhaired cats have a dense and silky coat, like that of a heavily furred rabbit, and the hair grows longer around the neck and face (a ruff), increases in length toward the stomach and has knickerbockers on the hind legs. Every possible colour and pattern is allowable, with little emphasis placed on perfection of markings.

 

                                                                                    

   
   
 

Personality - The only extreme allowed in this breed is its very docile nature. These cats love people and are affectionate and cuddly, with an ability to relax totally when held.  

  • The RagaMuffin has a soft plush coat which comes in a rainbow of colours and patterns that include:

  • Colours: Seals, Chocolate, Blue, Lilac, Mink, Sable, Black, Red, Silver, Shaded, Smoke, Cameo, and Cream.

  •  Patterns: Colour point, Tabby Point, Bi-colour, Mitted, Solid, Tabby, Tortie, and Calico, all with or without white.

  • They look at the world through eyes that come in an array of beautiful colours such as: blue, green, gold, amber, and aqua.

  • The colourpointeds will all have blue eyes.

  • They have tufts of fur in their ears and between their toes.

  • The plush, low-maintenance coat resists matting and is easily cared for with a few minutes of brushing or combing twice a week.

 
                                            
 

Lifestyle -  RagaMuffins remain underfoot and want involvement in what their people do. They get along well with children and other pets. Although they can adapt to a wide range of lifestyles, they are never aloof and thrive on companionship.

 
 

Grooming-The plush, low-maintenance coat resists matting and is easily cared for with a few minutes of brushing or combing twice a week.
