Have you ever seen the site, catsinsinks.com?  It is really cute – it is only cats in sinks and if you keep clicking “Show me another cat in a sink!” – you will keep seeing photos of cats in sinks! 

It was the inspiration for this post – and well, Caymus has been submitted to their site and when I saw Charlie doing it – I figured it was time for this post!

Caymus’ coat is the breed description for a Ragdoll cat – it is plush, doesn’t mat, and feels divinely luxurious.

The Ragdoll cat is a large, color-pointed cat breed known for going floppy when picked up, hence why they got the name “ragdoll.”

Distinctions between the purity of certain colors or patterns only matter if you want a Ragdoll for the show ring. Otherwise, these cats all have the same mild, loving personality regardless of coloring.

Do you have a Ragdoll cat?  Do you have a dog?  How do they get along? 

One of the questions I am asked quite frequently is whether or not Ragdoll cats get along with dogs. After all, we all know the stereotypes about cats and dogs hating each other. But is that true, or is it just what cartoons teach us, and can Ragdoll cats and dogs co-exist in a home?

Cat allergies are commonly associated with cat fur, but contrary to popular belief, this is not the main cause of the allergy. In most cases, the fur is merely the carrier. The main triggers are specific proteins found in the cat’s saliva and urine, and cat dander (dead skin).
