The ragdoll is a breed of cats native to the United States created in 1963 by Ann Baker, breeder of Persians. The name of this breed comes from an astonishing peculiarity: when taken, it becomes as soft as a ragdoll. With its silky fur and exceptionally soft character, it is a real living cuddly toy. Due to his legendary calm, his adoration towards his master and his great sociability, it is the ultimate domestic cat. The ragdoll also shows great discretion even in its mewing which is very mild. It is home and it adapts very easily. He enjoys the company of children and dogs. It is a little fearful cat who submits easily and who does not realize the danger. This is why it is not advisable to let it outdoors.
