A gorgeous, massive breed with large, expressive eyes, the RagaMuffin is sweet and loving, often described as being like a teddy bear. This feline thrives on attention and is a wonderful family pet that gets along well with other cats and cat friendly dogs. The RagaMuffin has an easygoing, calm temperament and can be trained to walk on a leash, play fetch and sit up to beg. This healthy breed reaches adulthood at 4 years old.
The RagaMuffin is similar, but not identical, to the conformation and temperament of the Ragdoll due to years of separation between the breeds. The RagaMuffin has a wider variety of colors and the body type is slightly different, though both breeds are descendants from the original Ragdoll bloodlines. The RagaMuffin is sometimes called not a new breed but an old one with a new name.
