These cats might just be the most easygoing felines of all. Ragdoll cats get their name from the first litter's tendency to drop limp like a doll when they were picked up, a habit some of the breed still carry.
They are known for being puppy-like: playful, and docile, and attention-loving. Because they're so gentle, they're also great with children and thrive in a family environment.
If you like sweet-tempered cats who will happily soak up your love while perched on top of your knees, a Ragdoll might be just the breed for you!
