She’s pretty, I could tell she was floofy, I just didn’t expect it to look like that lady was picking up a basket of laundry.🤣

She’s so beautiful! And my neighbors had a Ragdoll-they are huge and floofy…I love them!

What a well behaved adorable kitty. Good meow too.

u/rangebob Dec 01 '22

my God that cat is the twin to mine. also super calm

we have to get him shaved one time at a vet and when we went to pick him up they didn't even charge us because he just sat there and let them do it

omg 😭

u/Snow_Wonder Dec 02 '22

You said ragdoll, right? I’ve heard they are named that because they are such sweet gentle baby dolls!

Sounds about right!

We have cats from a stray mother. They are massive, fluffy, and very docile as well. Sometimes wonder if they might be part ragdoll!

3

u/[deleted] Dec 02 '22

Exactly 😊 you can pick them up and they’re just like a rag doll, they’ll just go limp and won’t fight much, unless you’re messing up his coat too much..

Gorgeous but not little. That's a large cat.

u/[deleted] Dec 01 '22

This is true

u/rangebob Dec 01 '22

Raggies are a larger breed. Not the biggest but up there

when we went to the breeders to get ours their main breeding male (Bashir) was sitting on the coach arm. He was sitting and he was the full length of the armrest

37

u/Eastofdark Dec 01 '22

Gorgeous. My cats are very much of the cost $100 at the SPCA to get the whole

There is absolutely nothing wrong with Standard Issue Cats. r/standardissuecats

u/AwesomeJB Dec 01 '22

Standard Issue Cats?! I love it!! I have 2!

22

u/rangebob Dec 01 '22

our current 2 were the only time we have ever used a breeder as I generally disagree with them. We used a breeder because we lived in a unit at the time and wanted a breed that I knew was good inside

the breeder was legit though. That woman lived for her cats and was very clean and gave us full access to see her operation. if she hadn't we would not have gone with her

My plan was to go back to rspca cats next time but she breeds Norwegian forest cats now and the level of cuteness is going to make it very very hard

13

u/Eastofdark Dec 01 '22

I understand the temptation. My limited budget means that rescue or SPCA cats are a pretty easy choice.

14

u/baskaat Dec 01 '22

Best choice regardless of your financial means.

7

u/Eastofdark Dec 01 '22

I agree but let's face it, it is less tempting to get a Maine Coone, for example, if you can't afford one.

5

u/litivy Dec 01 '22

The main problem with shelters here in the UK is that they either never respond or decide you are not worthy of a cat so people just land up getting one from a breeder. I called a shelter first, but wasn't holding my breath as a friend had jut been through the painful process of adopting a cat through a shelter and just never heard from them.

3

u/Eastofdark Dec 01 '22

I got my young cat from an SPCA in New Zealand. It was very easy but it was the day before the first lock down and they were trying to empty it out.

9

u/Stringgeek Dec 01 '22

Go to the shelter first. Then, if there are no kitties there, think about Norwegians while you drive to the next shelter.

u/be_neon_regent Dec 01 '22

I'm always shocked when I see a cat tolerating a bath. Every cat I've ever had turned into a cross between General Grievous and a woodchipper if you carried them within 6 ft of water. And this includes the one who was in every other respect the sweetest cat I've ever met :p

Your Marshmallow seems like a very lovely feline companion :-)

u/vrwriter78 Dec 01 '22

My cat would never be so calm, especially if you’re running the faucet with her in the tub. She will yowl and claw to get out. The few times we’ve had to give her a bath, she HATED it with the fire of 1,000 suns.

Luckily, she’s very good at self-grooming, so we only bathe her if absolutely necessary.

Oh a sweet baby! This is my ragdoll, but she doesn’t bathe well since she was gifted to me from a backyard breeder and needed a lot of TLC to get like this. So many poop disasters have resulted in many booty baths over the last 2.5 years 😅

https://preview.redd.it/srgfpl1qfg3a1.jpeg?width=750&format=pjpg&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=fe2ba3c7abbf87f78f3384a7979a6421545a947d

u/readallaboutitnow Dec 01 '22

How much does he weigh? And how long did it take for him to get to his size? We have an almost 6 month old and she’s not huge for her age but right on track. I want a giant fluff ball as well 😍

5

u/[deleted] Dec 01 '22

6.8 kilos at the minute, he’s just over a year and a half now, from what I’ve read they’re fully grown at around 4 years though so he could get a little bigger.. he’s been on a diet too and the vet says he’s around a healthy weight now. It probably took about a year until he was a big fluff ball.

7

u/readallaboutitnow Dec 01 '22

Our last appointment ours was about 2.5kg at 5 months. I can’t wait to see what she’s at when we take her in in January. She’s airway pretty fluffy

u/SuperMario1820 Dec 01 '22

Wow what a beautiful cat! It's so special for me seeing a cat tolerating a bath or even water🙀 Is there a good reason why you should bath your cat?

8

u/[deleted] Dec 01 '22

For ragdolls it’s recommended to bath them every 4-6 weeks to keep their coat clean, so that’s how often he gets bathed 😊

2

u/OneMorePenguin Dec 01 '22

That's a pretty posh bathhouse! Marshmallow looks like he had a great time!

I think he was loving the attention!

u/moonlighting2552 Dec 01 '22

He is surprisingly gentle in the bath. I had to give my orange brain cell a flea bath a couple years ago. He fought so much that one person had to hold him and the other person had to bathe him. He ended up snagging his claws in my shirt and ripped the sleeve. Thankfully it was a pretty neutral shirt.

Fluffy cats are the best 🥰 You have an adorable fluffball!!!! And your Marshmallow is so calm too. Ragdolls are so cute!!! ☺️☺️☺️

And yes this was my first cat, Fluffy (2000-2020) and she was the most relaxed cat in the world. Just had to share 😊 I believe she was a Norwegian Forest Cat though.

u/littlestray Dec 01 '22

Long haired cats need actual grooming. Only shorthaired (natural coat length) cats are truly self-cleaning.

1

u/TruthfulMayonaise Dec 01 '22

Is brushing a long haired cat regularly not sufficient? I mean, long haired cats still lick themselves.

3

u/littlestray Dec 01 '22

By actual grooming I mean human aid with grooming, which can be done by a professional or just by the cat's guardian at home, and yes, brushing counts. Long haired cats DO lick themselves, but it's like trying to brush your hair with a really poor comb for the job. Like, trying to brush an entire head of ass-length hair with a toothbrush. Their tongues are "designed" to comb out short hair, not long hair, which is a genetic mutation we bred into them. So it's on us to maintain it.

Longhair cats are a bit like overweight or arthritic cats in that they may try to groom by themselves, but they need human intervention to get the job done. They can't reach everywhere they need to and they can't get follicle to tip in one swipe of the tongue.
