History and Origins

Country of Origin: California, United States

Closely related to the Ragdoll, the RagaMuffin was founded when breeders wanted to bring in new colours and patterns. Others wanted to widen the breeds gene pool, and because the Ragdoll breed’s founder controlled that breed rather strictly, a new breed was created.

Outcrossing to Himalayans, Persians and other domestic longhairs, breeders managed to create a large, semi long-haired cat with a wide range of colours, but the same super relaxed nature – in fact the only extreme thing about the RagaMuffin is their laid back, ‘anything goes’ attitude to life.
