Ragdoll (and Ragamuffin) behavior behavior
Intelligent and so good-natured, they fit into diverse households. But be careful of aggressive children or other pets. The Ragdoll is non-aggressive to the point of not even defending themselves when attacked. This makes them definite indoor animals. They can, however, be easily leash trained; taking a jaunt down the street is a way they can enjoy the outside world. They are very sociable, playful, soft-voiced and people oriented. Puppy-like in their adoration of their owners, they make wonderful companions. Because the Ragdoll is so tolerant and good-natured it has been rumored that they are either not able to feel pain or have a decreased ability to do so. This claim has not been substantiated.
