Thinking of Adding a RagaMuffin Kitten to your Family?


author Amy Gryga/Miller    Sweetlilpaws RagaMuffins

Your RagaMuffin kitten will grow to be one of the largest cats with a coat that has a soft rabbit-like texture.  They enjoy having their tummies rubbed and will often lie on their backs in invitation. These huggable, lovable felines have the ability to go limp in your arms. They are considered to be a medium to large cat.  Maturity is reached between 4 to 5 years of age, and the RagaMuffin remains playful throughout their adult life.

The RagaMuffin will crave attention from their family members. Most of them will develop traits usually associated with puppies, such as: following their family around the house, and waiting for you to come home at the door. Ragamuffins are very intelligent, they are easily taught to walk on a leash and may be taught to do tricks such as fetching, rolling over, sitting up to beg, etc. They get along well with children, dogs and other cats.

Having been bred for an extremely docile nature, the RagaMuffin thinks everyone should be their friend. Not knowing the dangers of the outside world, they are strictly ”indoor members of the family”.

Since the Ragamuffin does not possess normal instincts with which to defend itself, at least not in the same way other cats do, most breeders do not allow declawing of our kittens but instead clip their nails. They tend to be “soft pawed” which means they use their claws less frequently when playing.
