TYPES OF RAGDOLLS

WHAT IS A TRADITIONAL RAGDOLL?

Traditional ragdolls are purebreds they are different because they are born white and slowly get their color in. This has to do with a thermoregulation within their hair shafts. They are the sub group that has the darkest of the blue eyes. Currently TICA only allows the pointed ragdolls within their show rings. However, in the future it is my hope that they will open it up to the minks and sepias too. These are certainly a favorite and popular color they can come in seal points, blue points, chocolate points, flame points, or tortie points, and recently cinnamon point and fawn point. They can also come in bicolor or mitted vs non mitted (AKA colorpoint).

Are they still ragdolls? yes very much so they are also registered with TICA just like all other ragdolls these are just pointed.

***What color are their eyes? their eyes will be a dark shade of blue.

The are three sub groups of this breed the first is the traditional, second is the mink and third and softest is the sepia. Contrary to some rude comments and rumors, mink ragdolls are indeed purebreds and the breed is officially acknowledged by The International Cat Association (TICA)

***Can minks be pointed? yes they can be however they are born with their color and their eyes are not blue they are aqua.

WHAT IS A SEPIA RAGDOLL?

All Sepia Ragdolls are born with color and this color deepens over time to an incredibly dark and richly colored coat.  Sepia's coats can be pointed so they may have variations to the shades of their coloring throughout their bodies. They have the softest of the fur and it is said to feel much like cashmere or rabbit fur. They can come in color variations such as lynx, bicolor, pointed, mitted or solids. 

***Are they still ragdolls? yes very much so they are also registered with TICA just like all other ragdolls.

***What color are their eyes? their eyes will often be green, orange (amber), golden, and even aqua (more rare).
