History: The first Ragdoll kittens were born in California in the 1960’s. They are probably the result of a mating between a white Persian queen (female) and a Birman or Birman-type tom. When picked up the cat becomes very relaxed and is as floppy as the ragdoll from which it takes its name. There are some that say that this was brought about by an accident the queen had whilst carrying the kittens but it is genetically impossible for the effects of the injury to be inherited by the kittens. The more realistic believe that many cats act in this way when they trust their owners and that the Ragdoll is a particularly trusting breed.
