Ragdolls need a lot of attention, which means that, if possible, Ragdolls should not be left alone for long.
If you have a Ragdoll but you are not at home for long periods of time, the best option is to have 2 Ragdoll cats. This way, they can play with each other and keep each other company.
Ragdolls are very affectionate and social. They always want to be in your company, following you all over the house as you go about your activities. Ragdoll cats also love to cuddle, and will curl up on your lap whenever they get the opportunity.
A lot of people wrongly assume Ragdolls are dumb because of their relaxed and easy going nature.
So, are Ragdolls smart?
These felines are highly intelligent, which also makes Ragdolls easy to train. You can easily train your Ragdoll to use their litter box, do tricks, play fetch, come when you call them, walk on a leash, and so on.
Good Family Pets
Ragdolls are great family pets. They get along well with everyone in the family. In addition, they are very great with kids, and will tolerate many of the games that kids want to play.
They are also comfortable in homes with other pets. Ragdolls will even get on well with dogs.
Unlike the common misconception, Ragdolls are unlikely to run away from home. The only reason why Ragdoll owners insist on keeping their Raggies indoors is because their docile nature makes them poorly equipped to defend themselves from predators.
