Breed Information, Traits & Many Photos

This is a question a lot of people interested in adopting a Ragdoll cat ask. Many people say that male Ragdolls tend to be sweeter, but many owners of female Ragdoll cats would say the opposite.

A good rule of thumb is that it’s not about the sex of the cat, but the personality in general, so the best question is whether the Ragdoll cat breeder has any insight into the kitten’s personality.

Sometimes, female kittens take a little longer to transition.

Visit with kittens of both genders and have some playtime with them, then choose a kitten you connect with.

Female kittens can be slightly more aggressive in play but have a strong bond with their owners.

Since females can become protective mothers, they might be slightly more careful and aloof.

Often, breeders want to sell male cats first because males can breed as young as five months, so this is why it often seems like the females are the last to sell.

Males are usually bigger, which many pet owners look for in a Ragdoll cat.

Females might have fewer issues with UTIs and blockage than males – but any cat fed a proper Ragdoll cat diet will not have this problem. Do remember that a proper diet will eliminate the UTI problem. Please read for more info.

While some believe that male cats have better temperaments than females, many owners find that there isn’t much difference once they are altered.

Try to get a pair of kittens. Ragdolls are very social and need company, so a sibling or another kitty might prevent behavior issues caused by loneliness.

Overall, the Ragdoll cat temperament tends to be friendly and affectionate in both genders. However, it depends on the individual cat’s personality and the love and trust they develop with their owner. Try to focus on getting to know a kitten’s personality when thinking about Ragdoll kittens for adoption rather than relying on gender as an indicator of what they will be like.
