About the RagaMuffin Breed
The RagaMuffin cats have some very unique qualities and behaviors. These cats are very playful and love their people like no other. RagaMuffins love to be in your lap at your feet or following you every where you go. Some are great at playing fetch like a dog, others are excellent authors and will type on your computer with you. What ever you are doing they will be beside you looking for attention.
RagaMuffin cats are indoor cats only.Cats can live much happier and healthier lives when kept inside. This is even more important with RagaMuffin cats because they have been bred for their gentle personalities.They do not have the survival instincts to survive in the outdoors.
RagaMuffin cats are large, muscular, heavy cats that do not reach full maturity until approximately 4 years old. Females can be substantially smaller than males. The look of the body is rectangular, with a broad chest and powerful shoulders supporting a short neck. The RagaMuffin cat often has a fatty pad in the lower abdomen. The head is a broad modified wedge with a rounded forehead and obvious nose dip. There is a puffiness to the whisker pad and the cheeks are full. Large, walnut shaped eyes give a sweet appearance. The RagaMuffin cat is one of the longhaired cats, with a dense and silky coat, like that of a heavily furred rabbit, and the hair grows longer around the face and neck (a ruff), increases in length toward the stomach, with a wispy frill on the hind legs. Every possible color and pattern is allowable. The plush, low maintenance coat resists matting and is easily cared for with a few minutes of combing one to two times a week. The nails should be trimmed periodically. We discourage declawing as this is a maiming procedure.
