    Sue, as someone that has had a Ragdoll I can confirm they TRULY are as amazing as everyone says they are. My Hudson was sooo amazing. He followed me EVERYWHERE, came out on the farm with me every day and was never far behind me. Used to sit on the front on the quad bike when we went around the farm to feed the horses and even sit in the tractor cab with my dad when he harrowed the paddocks! He was a giant at 9.5kgs!

    Here are a few photos of him.


    Love this one, it was the middle of winter and he was rocking his winter coat! Looking scruffy because he had just been out "helping" on the tractor with this girl (not me). I also love that "piss off" face he has! He always looked so grumpy but he was sooooo cuddly and purred so loud the moment you even said his name.

    That is one huge cat! Reminds me of a Maine Coon cat. Are they similar?

    They were developed completely differently but I guess they are similar. Ragdolls are always white with coloured markings or points and have super soft fur which is described as being like rabbit fur. Maine Coons can come in every colour and pattern under the sun and have much thicker fur. I think they have an undercoat too whereas Rags don't. Maine Coons are usually bigger, but my boy was especially huge! Ragdolls are known as the third largest breed of domestic cat after maine coons and Norwegan forest cats. Also ragdolls ALWAYS have blue eyes.

    That's very interesting.

    And now for some kitty trivia, since we've begun discussing different cat traits:

    Why do breeders (who know what they're doing) try to breed pure white cats with orange eyes instead of blue eyes?

    Why should one never sterilize a male Calico?

    Re: the male calico issue - male cats are almost always no more than two colors. It is unusual to have a male tricolor or calico.

    Hudson is one large cat - just what I want.

    Why? Because they are rare? That's not a reason not to neuter your pet - especially if you have no interest in breeding from it. Even if it's sterile an un-neutered male cat can be a real PITA.

    I've no idea. Most white cats are deaf aren't they?
