Alpacas & Ragdoll Cats

Ragdoll Colors & Patterns

The Ragdoll cat comes in very specific patterns and in various pointed colors. Ragdolls are blue-eyed pointed cats. The definition of a pointed cat is one with darker pigment on the extremities. The color is actually temperature-sensitive, so it gets darker on the cooler parts of the cat, which is its extremities. With Ragdolls, white may overlay some of the points in certain patterns. Other blue-eyed, pointed breeds are the Siamese and Himalayan.
