Ragdolls are a breed of cat that originated in England. They were developed by crossing domestic cats with jungle cats. These hybrids were then brought back to England and they were eventually accepted by the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) in the year 1989. The name ragdoll comes from the fact that these cats are born with a white coat, which makes them look like a fluffy dolls.  The cat’s body is shaped like a ragdoll.  It has soft fur, short legs, and a long tail.

What Makes A Pure White Ragdoll Cat?

The white color of the cat comes from an autosomal dominant gene.  When the parents are both carriers of this gene, their kittens will be pure white. If one of the parents is a carrier for this gene but does not have it, then the kittens will be all black or all white. This gene is not found in any other breeds of cats. The color of the cat also comes from an autosomal recessive gene.

It can also be found in a few other breeds of cats, but it is not as common.  In this case, when both parents are carriers for this gene, the kittens will be a mixture of the two colors.  The parents of these cats are usually called ‘carrier’ and they are carriers for both genes.  Carrier cats are not affected by either of these diseases.
