Ragdoll Cats or the Floppy Cat: Are All Ragdoll Cats Floppy?
Many people love Ragdoll cats or the floppy cat. Ragdoll cats sometimes are not the first cat a person has. In fact, many times people have an assortment of cats over the years. Yet, when someone gets a Ragdoll cat for the first time, many find that Ragdolls are friendlier towards humans than other cats are. Others claim that Ragdolls can be very therapeutic for them. Ragdolls are chosen for their size, their sociability, their gentleness and the in tune ability towards the person they are with. Well, and of course, as per this website’s name, www.floppycats.com page, Ragdoll cats are known as floppy cats, they did, after all, get their name of “Ragdoll” from being very floppy.
Are all Ragdoll cats floppy? No. Of the many Ragdoll cats I have known and loved, I have only known of one as truly floppy when you pick him up and the others are more floppy when they are sleeping.
Because of their laid back attitude, Ragdoll cats are usually very good cats for children, as they tend to tolerate the energy and craziness of a child more than other cat breeds. With that said, however, a child’s interaction with a cat should always be monitored in order to ensure the safety of the child as well as the cat. Also, many have found that people with Asperger Syndrome or Down syndrome that Ragdolls love them.
