My Ragdoll x Russian Blue

Post by Helen » Wed Aug 06, 2014 2:20 pm

I couldn't figure out how to add a further picture to my last thread to here is Sky .... now erm 13 weeks old. Fabulous mix of character - she does the floppy rag doll thing so well but is also a real little madam with a personality way too big for her size and age at the moment :)

Hello Helen and welcome to CC.

You have three lovely kitties there. As I write this I notice Bob is lying on the back of our sofa in the same position as Sky. He has the same big ears and long tail (for his size). I wonder if that means they are going to be BIG cats?

Ragdoll and Russian Blue - what a stunning combination! :D

Yes I am interested to see what size she makes - I know rags can be quite big but I'm not sure on the Russian blue?

Her mum was the rag doll and apparently just a regular size. I do love her colour and she has the lovely blue nose and paws. She seems very bright and is learning so quickly that after just one week I can't remember being without her!

Russians are tall cats, with long legs and slim long bodies - mine is a bag of bones but still weighs 4.7k

so add in the fur and solidity of a Ragdoll and I reckon you are going to need a heck of a strong carrier quite soon

LOL - she could be a real crumper then ... that's ok I like a big cat ! When you look at her now proportionally she seems to have a really long body compared to my other 2 - and those ears she really needs to grow into !

I saw the collapsing carrier thread so will keep an eye out - maybe something on wheels would be appropriate ....

Hmmmmm..... more experimental back street breeding I assume!!!

Cross two apparent pedigrees and you get a mog just like any other mob!!!!!!!

Absolutely sick of people crossing breeding to sell with no regard for the consequences.

I guess she is a mog - mine are all mogs and I love them.

Hopefully you read my other thread and understand its not my breeding or my purchase but an unwanted kitten who needed a home....

she certainly looks like a long-haired Russian in that photo

I hope for your sake she has the laid-back attitude of one too - I have had my Trigger 13 years and he has never bitten or scratched me, even when a kitten, and is a total - well, pussycat! - at the vets

Its strange Kay somehow in photos she looks more 'pointy' than in real life - particularly her face and ears ...... she's the only one of my 3 who rolls over for a tummy tickle and it isn't a trap !!!

I'll be interested to see how long haired she gets - I think she'll be fluffy/semi long haired but time will tell !

Just catching up with this enjoyable thread which has been spoiled by sour Hunnybunny which is a shame. One of my cats is a Ragdoll x Norwegian forest cat and a gorgeous big healthy cat. On the insurance application form it asks if the cat is a pedigree, cross breed or moggie so for petplan there is a difference..I ticked moggie though.

CatFan5. Darn right I'm sour about this trend to buy a un papered pedigree and see what pops out when you mix it with another un papered pedigree for the sake of making money!!!

I don't suppose you are at the sharp end of dealing with these idiots that just add to the already huge pressures of rescues by their unscrupulous behaviour let alone think on to how mixing these already skewed genetic lines will effect the long term health and behaviour of these cats who when things do go wrong end up on the streets or in need of rescue help!!!!!!!!

I have no issue with these cats being adopted by cat lovers through rescues but if you go out and buy one then to put it plainly you are just an idiot with a lack of brain cells or any sense of moral integrity..........!!!!!

A cross breed is a moggie in most peoples eyes.....

Indie, pure mog, no Ragdoll or Norwegian Forest cat, found in a bin with mum and sibs.

About as beautiful a mog as you can get I'd say......

hunnybunny I just have to say this is not a competition about what is cutest - pedigrees or mogs whether bought or rescued - they are ALL beautiful. Absolutely no need to behave in such a way on someone elses thread.

Sorry to OP.

I am not sure that I have read anywhere in this thread that anyone has paid money for their cross breads so I am not sure why some posters have taken offence at it?

As Kittywitty has said, all if the cats are beautiful
