The Ragdoll is known for it's affectionate nature. They were created in the 1960's by a Persian Cat breeder in California. They are a large size cat breed and can weigh anywhere from 10 to 20 lbs depending on if it's a male or female.
They are very relaxed and layed back; they are almost puppy-like cats. Ragdoll Cats don't shed much and require a light grooming routine.
