Ragdoll temperament

Laid-back in nature, the Ragdoll is known for its placid, affectionate personality. They enjoy following people around, playing and being carried. The ragdoll lacks agression towards other pets, so they mix well with dogs, as well as children. They are not a vocal cat. Ragdolls do best as an indoor cat.
