Ragamuffin Cat Breed information:

Probably, you too, thinking about the names of purebred cats, did not know that the Ragamuffin breed existed. This is because it is a relatively recent hybrid. Its history, in fact, is quite particular and is closely linked to another feline breed, much better known, the Ragdoll. This last breed of cat was born in the 1960s.

The breeder who first discovered it and created this name, however, imposed very strict rules for its selection and breeding. For this reason, in 1994 a group of breeders separated from the International Ragdoll Cat Association and gave birth to the Ragamuffin breed, a cross between the Ragdoll (descendant of Burmese and Burmese cats), long-haired domestic cat, and Persian cat.

Ragamuffin Cat Breed personality:

The Ragamuffin is a placid cat but does not relax completely when held. He has a uniform temperament and gets along well with all members of the family. Changes in routine usually do not bother him. It is the ideal companion for those who live in apartments.
