RagaMuffins are a large docile breed of cat. Their coat colors come in all colors and patterns and are irresistible to touch. Their dense coat is often compared to plush rabbit fur and is incredibly soft. One of the great characteristics of their coats is they seldom mat! With a once a week light combing, RagaMuffins shed surprisingly little. RagaMuffins are known for their calm demeanor, intelligence and kitten-like charm that seems to remain into their adult age. With their face having a rounded appearance and large almond shaped eyes, they present a charm almost cupid-like. Another endearing trait is their plumed tail. The cats at Benchmark often have their tails held high as they move about.
There is no specific color distinction for RagaMuffins. Colors vary from solid colors to pointed cats, similar to Ragdolls and Himalayans. They also come in tabbies, sables, minks (several colors) as well as tuxedos, tortoise shell and calicos. These colors and patterns are allowed (per breed standard) with or without white. RagaMuffin eye color can vary from blue, aqua, green, gold and odd-eyed (two eyes of different colors).
RagaMuffins love people! They are a definite family cat. RagaMuffins bond strongly to their family members. Due to their kind, laid-back personalities they are good candidates for families with children. The typical RagaMuffin does not have a defensive attitude: they possess a gentle nature whose temperament requires they strictly be kept only as indoor cats. The cats here at Benchmark love to follow their ‘keeper’ purring all the way! In fact, often is the case when they know you are stooping over to pick them up their purring voices turn on before they are off the floor!
RagaMuffins love affection. They love it so much that if you absolutely have to type on a computer without a cat stepping on the keyboard – you will need to retreat to a room with a door! If you are seeking a cat or kitten to add to your household and do not like being ‘bothered’ by a cat seeking affection or wanting to sit on your lap while watching t.v. or reading the paper or having a self-invited guest to your daily nap, then having the RagaMuffin is not for you!
*Warning! RagaMuffins are addicted to affection!
