The caption reads: “How my cat tells us he wants food now!! He has more manners than me!!!”
What is a Ragdoll Cat?
Described as “docile and gentle” by pet nutrition brand Purina, Ragdoll cats have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years.
The Ragdoll is an artificial breed created by Californian cat breeder Anne Baker in the 1960s. She crossed an Angora-type cat, with Siamese-colored body white gloves and boots, with a solid black cat to create his first Ragdolls. “The aim in creating the Ragdoll was to produce a glamorous act with a very laid back and relaxed nature, ideal as a family companion. It’s safe to say the aim was achieved, the Ragdoll is renowned for its super cool attitude face life!” Purina said.
Pet advice website Fetch reports that although Ragdolls do need a little maintenance, they are relatively easy to care for. “Despite their longer fur, Ragdoll cats are relatively low maintenance. The Ragdoll cat’s coat benefits from regular brushing with a steel comb to prevent tangles from forming and to minimize shedding. Ragdoll cats shed , but they do not shed as much as breeds with thicker, [woolly] underlays. In fact, Ragdoll shedding mostly occurs when the seasons change to spring and fall, and the light, fluffy fur is easy to pick up and throw away.
“Keeping your Ragdoll’s nails trimmed will help prevent your furniture from accidentally snagging. Brushing your Ragdoll’s teeth regularly (ideally daily) can help reduce plaque buildup and reduce the risk of dental disease. , which is thought to affect up to 90% of cats over the age of 4.”
Pamela Schlachter commented: “‘THIS is supposed to be your job.’ *pours food into a bowl*.”
Lulu said, “Couldn’t be any clearer, what a smart kitty.”
Vanessa Nguyen wrote: “I was waiting for him to open this bag and pour it into the bowl.”
