The Russian Blue x Ragdoll conversation came up recently in our house. Our family have a Russian Blue but it came up recently whether we should get a Ragdoll to keep our Sphinx company so she is not by herself.
Ragdoll cats are known to be quiet. Ragdoll cats need a moderate level of attention, perfect for owners who desire non-active cats.
A fully-grown female weighs from 8 to 15 pounds (3.6 to 6.8 kg). Males are substantially larger, ranging from 12 to 20 pounds (5.4 to 9.1 kg) or more.
Although Ragdoll cats regularly lick their coats to clean themselves. Regular grooming once a week is good in that it removes hair, prevents matting, and stimulates circulation.
Constant shedding occurs for the Ragdoll cat breed. Brush and comb its coat regularly to reduce the risk of developing hairballs.
Similarly, the Russian Blue is a gentle, quiet cat, somewhat shy. Brush their teeth to prevent periodontal disease.
Daily dental hygiene is best, but weekly brushing is better than nothing.
