Help me Identify the Breed!

Hi guys, loving this forum.

I have had my cats for a while, and the vet and anyone else who seems them always comments that they are too cute for words, great natured, and suprisingly non-alergenic. (allergic? no idea of the word..)

Anyway doing some googling, I think they are a Raggamuffin. What do you think?

This is Pussington:


This is Bandit:\



Both:


There fur is very soft, like softer than human hair, and they have a little fat droopy belly. Bandit is significantly bigger than Pussington even though they are from the same litter.

What do you think?

Yes, Ragdolls do have blue eyes. These kitties have a beautiful mane and what looks like nice thick legs. Those would be characteristics of a Ragdoll as well as Himalayans and a few other breeds. These cats are not purebreds, but may have some characteristics of some. My first thought when I looked at them is that they had Ragdoll in them too.

Ragdolls are known for their "unaggressive" personality or as cats who don't possess any aggression genes. My Jasper will NOT fight any other cat, and he is the only cat I know that can walk into my foster kitten room with the momma present and not have the momma attack him. It's remarkable.


Himalayans are also not so aggressive, however, they do like to be loners. They also have a very thick undercoat, which Ragdolls don't have.

I think they're beautiful cats.

When your groom your cats you could save the fur .
I found this wed site that tell things you use cat fur for.

They are the most docile cats I have ever seen. Not one bit of aggression in them!!

The one think that makes me think there is rag doll in them is that when you pick them up, they go lip and just lay there! You can wear them as hats, put them on your shoulder etc etc.

They also LOVE attention and affection, they are honestly amazing!
