Our “Ask US Anything” is a series of posts on the site where I share the questions/concerns/ideas that readers have sent in and then the responses from our readers about those questions/concerns/ideas.

Mole or Beauty Mark in Ragdoll Cat’s Ear

Mandy wrote in, asking: “I had a question and wondering if you had ever seen this in a seal point Ragdoll….

Rocky developed a “beauty mark” for lack of a better word around late February in his left ear. It’s completely flat and appears to just be his skin itself with pigment. He will be 12 months old at the end of April and his colorpoint markings are definitely markedly darker most recently as his winter coat sheds off.

Have you ever seen this sort of thing? I scoured the internet but came up empty.”

I wasn’t sure, so suggested we ask on Facebook.


Ragdoll Walking with Claws Out

A reader wrote in to me via direct message on our Facebook page:

“My rag doll is about 8 years old. He has recently started doing this really weird thing when he walks. He walks with his claws out and you can hear him grabbing the carpet as he walks. He clawing mats and seems very healthy otherwise. eating, drinking, and sleeping normal. I am just wondering if anyone else has any experience with this. I have not gone to the vet with him to ask about this.

Thanks for any help.”

Ragdoll Cat Sneezing All the Time

Another reader wrote in to me via direct message on our Facebook page:

“Hi, I’m wondering if you could post this to your page for reader help maybe… But my sweet boy Phoenix who is 3 is consistently congested and Sneezy and I’m looking for advice. In the past we’ve been told he probably has feline herpes. We give him lysine gel daily which has helped so he never gets too bad but still you can always hear his breathing and he sneezes a lot every day, getting his beard fur crusty. Today one eye is super runny and irritated. We have taken him to the vet and get medications that help but nothing fixes it entirely. Any ideas?”

She asked me to post it on our Facebook page, so I did:
