While most cats are independent, Ragdolls love humans and are attention seekers. If neglected, they will be upset and may become destructive out of frustration. Make sure to spend time playing with your Ragdoll, grooming him, petting and loving him.
Although, Ragdolls are great at keeping their long, beautiful fur clean, you need to groom them at least once a week. This helps with shedding and keeping fur balls to a minimum. Grooming also plays a big part in connecting with your cat.
They are cats that love to play with toys and have fun. Toys they can chase, bat at, and bat around are their favorites, and remember to prepare fun, safe toys that can entertain your cat.
5. Vet checks
To ensure your cat is growing healthy, regular vet checks are required. Early detection is important as Ragdolls are prone to breed specific diseases. Kidney and bladder issues are common issue among the breed and they can be checked with blood test.
6. Keeping them safe outdoors
Ragdolls shouldn’t be allowed out of doors as they are indoor cats and are not good at defending themselves. They are too trusting, which can put them at risk of danger or injury. It is best to keep them indoors, but if you do let them out, they should be monitored at all times.
7. Monitor around kids
Kids can get a rough at times, and adults must teach them how to handle pets. Due to the extremely gentle and passive nature of the Ragdoll, they are prone to be injured by children. They might not protest against rough handling, which can make it a dangerous for your Ragdoll and they should be monitored when around young kids.
