More details about the Ragdoll

Ragdoll: Origins and history

Originating in America, Ragdolls were first created in 1963 by Ann Baker, who bred black Persians. She crossbred a male seal point cat with a Turkish Angora cat, with long white hair and intense blue eyes. Due to the docile temperament of these cats, Ann Baker decided to name them "Ragdoll". Other breeders, such as Denny and Laura Dayton, developed the breed further and worked towards getting it recognised. It was accepted as a breed by TICA in 1979 and by the International Feline Federation in 1992.
