Ragdolls are sweet, funny, silly, very active and playful, they need safe outdoor time if possible (that's their Siamese genetics), they are not lap cats in general. I have 8 and not one is a lap cat but I don't care. They are wonderful, loving, gentle cats, very intelligent and need very little brushing. I never bathe them.They are very sensitive so if your house is loud, noisy, boisterous, angry don't get a Ragdoll. If you are planning to declaw or tedonectomy you do not want a cat. Those surgeries cause serious health and behavior problems from the permanent pain and insecurity they cause the cat.
Ragdolls like to climb up high on the cat trees and hang out there, mine love to sit on shelves. They love to run and thunder around in a group, it's like having very tiny horses and they are so funny when they're doing that. I cannot stress how sweet and loving they are, because they are so sensitive it is easy for them to end up shy and scared if they are exposed to too much stress. I have 6 of my 8 because they were very scared because they had too much stress, 4 were breeders and cattery life freaked them out, 2 were in high-stress homes because the owners expected them to not be cats but to be perfect and flawless and obey ridiculous rules. It made them neurotic until they came here where all I expected them to be were cats. Now they are friendly and loving again. One of my 8 gets blood in his urine from even the slightest stress, he is an extremely sensitive boy who was a show cat and the stress of that gave him chronic health troubles. Daily brushing makes him SO happy and it is part of his security and reassurance.
I believe that the job of Ragdolls on this earth is to teach love. I am not a dreamy, fantasy-headed person, I am very grounded and still I firmly believe this about Ragdolls. If you get Ragdolls do NOT expect them to just sit there and look pretty because it's not going to happen. If you give them nothing to do you will have frustrated, unhappy stressed out cats. Be prepared for real cats. Be ready with a Da Bird, or other interactive toy, to play with them alot. Be ready for extremely gentle souls who have a great sense of humor and need to play and climb in order to be happy and who need, instead of strict rules and regulations, to just be loved and to be allowed to be the cats that they are.

Does anyone know anything about ragdollcats.net? good?/bad?
Ahh I have never heard of this site/breeder before actually.. I tried googling for some reviews or ANY mention of them whatsoever but no luck. Are you near the area? I'd say your best bet is to visit them first if you're considering a kitten
