Solid, Mink and Cinnamon Ragdoll Cats
Solid, Mink, Sepia and Cinnamon Ragdolls at our cattery are SBT – TICA registered. They have the same characteristics and personality that the Traditional Ragdolls do in every way. These true Ragdolls are not a new breed, they have been around since the beginning of the Ragdoll breed. Josephine the mother of the breed gave birth to Solid black and Pointed kittens. Only the pointed were chosen to represent and promote the Ragdoll breed standard, however one mother cannot give birth to two separate breeds in the same litter. Thus the Solids were just as much Ragdoll as their Pointed siblings.
Unlike Traditional Ragdolls which are born white, Minks are born with full color and pattern. Minks still come in all the traditional colors and patterns. The coat of a Mink is much smoother and even softer than the Traditionals and they have an even darker and richer all over colored coat. The body of a Mink is just a shade lighter than their points. ink Ragdolls have Aqua blue to Aqua green colored eyes and some have the rare blue eyes. To produce a Mink , one parent must be a mink, sepia or solid.
These kittens are substantially darker than their Mink littermates and have a plush coat. Their eye color is usually green/gold and sometimes even bluish or odd eyed. Sepia’s are also born with full color and pattern. Both parents must be Minks to produce a Sepia or one parent is a Mink and one is a Sepia or both are Solid colored.
(Sorry we do not breed Sepia’s)
Solid Ragdoll are the darkest and highest contrast of all the Ragdolls. Solids are non pointed and often referred to as “self – colored”. The body color and point color are all the same, a single color throughout. Solid Ragdolls eyes can come in all colors with preference being given to green and they can carry the same overlaying coat patterns. A Solid can only be produced if one of the parents is a Solid. However Solids can carry the traditional pointed or mink gene but not both. Solids that do not carry one of those genes will only produce solid kittens.
