Ragdoll cats come in colors and patterns.  So the “blue” (gray) is the color, whereas the pattern can be lynx, mitted, tortie, bicolor and more.  

You’ll notice that even though they are all blue, their pattern makes them look quite different. For example, a blue lynx mitted looks quite different than a blue colorpoint or a blue bicolor.  The blue lynx mitted has white eyeliner, as well as a white mustache and a pink nose.  Whereas, a blue colorpoint has no eyeliner, no mustache and a dark nose.

Here is what each pattern of Blue Ragdoll looks like, according to the data provided by the Cat Fancier’s Association (CFA):

Blue Point Ragdolls

The body is bluish white, of a cold tone, which shades gradually to white toward the cat’s stomach and its chest. Its points are deep blue and its dominant eye color is also blue. As for the nose leather and the paw pads, these are slate colored.

Blue Ragdoll Cats – The FAQ Section

Do you still have questions about blue Ragdoll cats? Then take a look at our list of FAQs. We hope you find the answers you need.

Here are the most commonly asked questions about this particular coloration of Ragdoll cat:

Are blue Ragdoll cats actually blue?

No, they are not. The term “blue” used for this specific coloration is actually a technical term used by cat breeding experts.

This is used to define a specific shade of grayish white, with very light inflexions, which are blue in shade. However, this does not mean that the cat is born or will ever develop blue-colored fur. The term blue is purely technical and it has nothing to do with the color blue.

Are blue Ragdoll cats born with blue-white fur?

Like all other Ragdoll cats, blue Raggies are born entirely white. This is the case for absolutely all color variations in the breed. Then, as the kitten develops further, their fur pigmentation also kicks in and they develop colored fur.

For blue cats, the color of their fur is a bluish white in a cold tone, so the change is minimal. But for other color variations, such as seal point Ragdolls, the change is much more visible. If you want to find out more about how Ragdoll cats get their fur color, then you can read our article on color progression in Ragdolls.

If not, how can you recognize a blue Ragdoll?

When the kitten is very young, there is actually no way to know what color its fur will develop into. You can analyze the colors of its parents, as well as its grandparents, if this information is available, but this can only point in a certain direction.

The only way to know for sure is to wait for the kitten to develop long enough for its definitive coat color to be noticeable. The blue-white shade is specific for this coloration pattern.

Will blue Ragdoll cats change color over the course of their lives?

Yes, they will, just like any other cats. When the blue Ragdolls reaches seniority, it will develop more white fur on its face and extremities.

Even though the difference in color is not as easy to notice as in other colorations, it is present and a keen eye will spot the differences. Pictures can be a very useful resource to spot out changes in color.

How does a blue Ragdoll change color when its temperature is high?

In blue Ragdolls, this is much more difficult to notice. Ragdoll cats have the ability to change the color of their fur when their body temperature is modified.

When their temp is high, the fur on their bodies becomes lighter in color. However, the difference from their typical blue-white color might be very subtle.

How does a blue Ragdoll change color when its temperature is low?

When their body temperature drops, a Ragdoll’s fur becomes darker in tone. In blue Ragdolls, this will be quite easy to spot, as it will be big change from the typical blue-white color of their fur. If you notice something like this, then you should probably check the cat’s body temperature.

Do blue Ragdoll cats also have blue eyes?

Yes, they do. The vast majority of blue Ragdoll cats have blue eyes. The ones that do not have blue eyes are actually the exception.

Do blue Ragdoll cats grow up to be blue?

No, they do not. While some people expect blue Ragdolls to eventually turn blue, this does not happen. In spite of their name, blue Ragdolls never actually reach a color that compares to typical blue.

What do old blue Ragdoll cats look like?

Old Ragdoll cats get white inflexions in their fur. They also get white fur on their faces, more than other parts of their bodies.

This change is far more dramatic in Ragdoll cats of darker colors, but in blue Raggies, the differences are far less noticeable. The blue-white fur on their faces eventually switches to a full-on white shade.

As you can see, blue Ragdolls may not be blue in color, but they are exceptionally gorgeous nonetheless. Is your cat a blue Ragdoll? What do you think about the beautiful blue Ragdoll cats in our gallery? Do you have a favorite? Tell us all about it in the comment section below.

  1. The blue coloring for Ragdolls is amongst my all time favorite coloring for Ragdolls. Along with the blue mitted pattern or blue lynx pattern such as Trigg’s markings, but I actually ended up preferring the blue lynx mitted pattern due to the other Ragdoll mentioned on floppycats, Skyy, I thought she was really pretty when I watched the YouTube clips of her! From what I remember, she was the one who refused to play with the toy banana ^^

  2. I have a question I have a seal point mitted ragdoll..what do you breed that type of pattern with…is there a certin color and pattern that you should?

  3. Ahhhh, The Beautiful Blues! Our Miss Pink Sugarbelle is a beautifully gorgeous Blue Lynx Bi-Color. 🙂

    The pictures are AWESOME! Lurved every single one of them!

    Thanks for sharing this info, Jenny!

    Big hugs!

    Patti & Pink Sugar 🙂 <3

    1. Why thank you so much, Miss Sweet T!!! I totally agree with you! And…may I say that your Miss Illaria Rose and Miss Gracie are Simply Goregous, too? Well, they are! So I guess I did say it! lol (Doink)

      Big hugs!

      Patti & Pink Sugar 🙂 <3

    1. Your Miss Olivia Grace (or Miss Gracie as I like to call her) is Soooo Gorgeous (I spelled it correctly this time!)!!! Her “blue” fur is so lush and that little white chin gets me Every Single Time. 🙂 <3

      Big hugs!

      Patti & Pink Sugar 🙂 <3

    Big hugs!

  5. So…we are getting our second ragdoll in a few weeks. We have first pick. I am torn between a blue bicolor or a chocolate bicolor. Both have gorgeous markings and both are equal in personality at this point… they are 8 weeks old. I have a 7 month old seal point mitted now. I literally lie awake at night trying to pick one!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh

    1. if the breeder is a good breeder, then i would ask her to choose which one based on your current cat’s personality. it is best to compliment the current personality. also, hopefully she has provided instructions on how to introduce them so that there is long term harmony in the house.

      1. The breeder has provided info on introductions and you have guided me in the right direction with that as well. The reason why it is down to these two is both complement our kitty’s personality. They are equal as far as personality and markings. I don’t care so much about markings as I do personality. We thought we were getting a girl kitten, but she is too dominant for our current kitten

  6. I always enjoy the Color Pattern reposts soooo very much, Jenny!!! Such beautiful pics available for each one!!! ALL the colors and patterns of Ragdolls are SIMPLY GORGEOUS!! But, the blues hold a special place in my heart thanks to our lurvely Miss Pink Sugarbelle (Blue Lynx Bi-Color Beauty!)! 🙂 <3

    Big hugs & lots of love!

    Patti & Miss Pink Sugarbelle 🙂 <3
