Request Angoradoll Kitten InformationCombining the Turkish Angora (European Style large and heavy boned) with the Ragdoll creates a friendly, more active Ragdoll type. Angoras are fearless, under foot, on your lap, very friendly cats, that are super dog-like pets. Angoras are especially healthy, heat tolerant and low maintenance. They are the foundation of the original Ragdoll. Rare and hard to get Angora adds friendliness and white color often with fabulous blue, green, or odd eye colors.

As a hybrid cross of two strong, established cat breeds, the Angoradoll will manifest a diversified combination of the physical characteristics of the both Ragdoll and the Turkish Angora, its parent breeds.
Characteristics of the Ragdoll
With striking eyes that range in shades from baby blue to sapphire, the Ragdoll is a large cat with "chubby" cheeks, a short nose, and a muscular body that is both long and broad in the chest. Large paws, a stocky build, and heavy legs give these cats the appearance of sturdiness that is nonetheless well-balanced. In adulthood, male Ragdolls weigh between 15 and 20 pounds, with females somewhat smaller. In spite of its large size, the Ragdoll does not have an ungainly appearance. Instead, these cats are beautiful, completely in proportion and with no extremes or oddities in appearance.
Ragdolls are "pointed," and have three distinct patterns. These are lynx, tortoiseshell, and a combination of the two, referred to as “torbie.” Colors are lilac, chocolate, blue, seal, and red-and-cream, the latter of which is not accepted in all registries.
Color-pointed Ragdolls have Siamese markings, with beige or ivory body coats, and darker points on the legs, tail, back, face and ears. Color-pointed kitties do not have any white on their bodies. “Mitted Ragdolls" are color-pointed with white mittens on the front paws. These are also acceptable for show, as long as the mittens are matched in shape and size and don't go higher than the "ankle break." The hind legs also have white boots on this particular type of cat, and should go up to the hock level.
Characteristics of the Turkish Angora
Possibly the original and oldest long-haired domestic cat breed, the Turkish Angora is defined by a long, slender build. Although the Turkish Angora is most often associated with being a white cat, it comes in all colors except for those that indicate it may have been interbred with another breed. Generally, the coat colors are cream, red, black, blue, blue-cream, tortoiseshell, silver and smoke, as well as red, and tabby – or any of these colors with white trimming.
Almond-shaped eyes and a long, brush-like tail comprised of long hairs that are all the same length enhance the appearance of the Angora which is an elegant and regal cat.
As the product of these two breeds, the Angoradoll's fur is as fluffy and soft as a rabbit's, without the matting problems that can be common in other breeds. The eyes, too, are not necessarily blue as with the Ragdoll but can be green, blue, or just about any color.
Breeders of the Angoradoll aspire to produce a cat that has the personality of the highly personable Ragdoll with the more active athleticism and fearless energy of the Angora. Ever-agreeable and pleasing, the Ragdoll is often called a "puppy," because this lovely kitty will follow you from room to room and simply want to be your "love bug." Not one to perch on its high horse isolated from you, this Kitty wants to sit with you at all times. Kitten-like and playful, the Ragdoll keeps this personality into adulthood and beyond. The Angoradoll promises to possess this type of personality, as well.
The very smart Turkish Angora, in contrast to the Ragdoll, can be quick-tempered and fast-moving. Drawing from these genetic traits, the Angoradoll purportedly offers the serene, snuggly, exceedingly sweet personality of the Ragdoll with the fast-moving intelligence of the Angora.
Given that the “lazy” Ragdoll prefers your companionship at all times, it is no wonder it has no desire to roam outdoors. A bit more surprisingly, even the athletic Angora can be perfectly happy indoors with a litter box, food, water and toys. It follows that the Angoradoll should be content to accept life indoors as long as you give it plenty of love, attention – and a clean litter box along with access to plenty of water. Because the Ragdoll can be prone to weight gain, the diet of the Angoradoll should be closely monitored to avoid the same fate.
Because the Angoradoll is a hybrid, it will likely be sturdier and healthier than its "parent" breeds, as all hybrids are. Both the Turkish Angora and the Ragdoll are generally healthy, but both can also develop a condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is the most common heart disease in cats. Echocardiograms can confirm whether or not the condition exists in a particular cat. Both the Ragdoll and the Angora are resilient cats, with average life spans of 12 to 18 years for the Angora and 12 to 17 years for the Ragdoll – a very good sign that the Angoradoll will also have a long life. Ragdolls are slow to mature and won't reach full maturity until they are three years old, and this may be true as well of the Angoradoll.
With medium long to long, silky coats, the Ragdoll and Angora are easy to groom with a stainless steel comb. These breeds should be groomed once or twice a week to prevent mats and tangles, although the Angoradoll's coat is said to be resistant to mats and tangles, thus making it a potentially even easier breed to groom than either of its parent breeds. In addition, regular nail trimming and ear cleaning, as well as tooth brushing, should be done. Since the Ragdoll is very calm and relaxed, the Angoradoll will probably inherit this particular personality trait which will facilitate easy grooming, including tooth brushing (which can be difficult with some breeds) with your Angoradoll.
