About this group
Effortlessly handsome and endlessly huggable, Ragamuffins are happiest sitting in your lap and saying hello – because when it comes to friendliness, few felines can rival these lovable furballs. And if a nice warm lap isn’t readily available, Ragamuffins will settle for playing fetch or learning a new trick: qualities which have lead some people to call them ‘puppy like’.
Ragamuffins are closely related to, and descended from, Ragdolls cats. Many Ragamuffins were (and are) bred by crossing a Ragdoll with another breed such as a Persian or Himalayan. The original aim was to increase the genetic health of the breed; another result, which often now distinguishes Ragamuffins from their cousins, is the much wider variety of colours – both in their fur and eyes.
Ragamuffins are generally healthy, but hereditary health issues that can be a concern include hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (a form of heart disease) and polycystic kidney disease. Your vet will be able to offer further information on both of these.
