CFA Pedigreed Breed: RagaMuffin

When you first see a RagaMuffin from a distance, you will find yourself in awe. There lies a gorgeous, massive cat with large, expressive eyes that are just begging for you to come closer. You will not believe its sumptuous color, its soft coat, or the substantial size of its body.

RagaMuffins come in all coat colors and patterns, with the pointed and pointed-with-white colors being registered with but not shown by the Cat Fanciers' Association. These are striking cats whether the color is blue, brown tabby with white, tortoiseshell, or mink. The coat is medium-long, yet the RagaMuffin is a low-maintenance cat. Although the coat is thick and plush, it does not readily mat or clump and is easy to care for.

A RagaMuffin's personality is one of extreme sweetness, with traits of those similar to an endearing lap dog. Each one of these cats thrives on attention and it is not unusual for any one of them to greet you at the door, follow you from room to room, and become your faithful companion. They make wonderful family pets, with so much affection to give everyone in the family, including your other pets.

RagaMuffins are wonderful with children. Their calm and patient temperament lends itself to the boisterous, robust play of youngsters and they can easily be found attending tea parties or taking rides in baby strollers. Their easygoing personality makes them adaptive to almost any environment or situation, as long as they have their humans' attention and interest.

    I have a ragamuffin kitty, I've grown up with him and he is perfect and my soul mate. These cats are perfect for families with big hearts and playful spirits.

    RagaMuffins are awesome. They are new to CFA. CFA doesn't allow all colors/patterns, yet. ACFA and TICA have long recognized RagaMuffins in all their beauty. Mine are Champions in ACFA. They are active, playful, fetch and retrieve, vocal and I believe talk. Mine says, MAMA when he wants something. They also trill, and 'brrrppp' and purr, purr, purr. They get lonely, not the sort of cat to be alone all day, unless you have two. They thrive on attention. RagaMuffins are family members!!
