Ragdoll (and Ragamuffin) health Health Information
No specific medical problems have been noted with the Ragdoll. Their long fur can be combed regularly to give it fluff and beauty. These striking cats are generally not prone to matting so they do not need the often rigorous grooming of other long haired breeds like the Persian, instead grooming once or twice a week should do the job. The average lifespan of the Ragdoll is the same as ordinary cats, 12-15 years is average but some are known to live as long as 20 years.
