I used to think that meowing a lot was not a Ragdoll cat behavior, but I am beginning to wonder if that’s the case. My Charlie is a meowing maniac. Trigg, not so much. Rags rarely meowed and it wasn’t until he was an crotchety old man that he started meowing – and by then I wanted him to meow so badly that I loved everything I could get!
Charlie is definitely the most vocal of the 8 Ragdoll cats in my family – as far as I have witnessed. Murphy, my mom’s 7-year old Ragdoll cat, is very vocal, but usually when spoken to or when he’s hauling around a toy of his. He doesn’t meow at you when you are on the phone, like Charlie likes to do.
Here’s a video of Charlie as a Ragdoll kitten meowing:
And here he is as an adult meowing:
Here’s a video of Caymus wailing at Petco:
And when we’re getting ready to leave, he’s still meowing:
Rags as an old man meowing (it’s a long video, forward to :32 to hear his meow – I think he meowed because his teeth hurt, but I am not sure):
