A relatively new breed, the RagaMuffin has been widely confused and compared with the Ragdoll. Although the history of the RagaMuffin has not been completely documented, an interview with Curt Gehm, the founder of the RagaMuffin breed, confirmed that the two breeds were founded with entirely different genepools.

The RagaMuffin is a large breed with a muscular body and broad chest. Their semi-long to long coat is soft, dense and luxurious and comes in various colours and patterns. Their eyes are oval shaped and expressive, and their ears are set on the sides of their medium sized head. They have a beautiful tail that is long and fluffy.
12 - 14 years
The RagaMuffin is an intelligent, loving and affectionate breed that loves being around people. They make an ideal pet for families with children and are suitable for small house and apartment lifestyle. Although not athletic or energetic like other breeds, the RagaMuffin do enjoy playing and climbing scratching posts. They tend to retain their kitten-like playfulness for a number of years, delaying their maturity.
Being a gentle natured cat, the RagaMuffin should be kept indoors only.
As a long haired cat, the RagaMuffin will require daily grooming to avoid matts from forming.
