Children and Ragdolls
cats were initially bred to be calm and docile in temperament.
They are a non aggressive breed of cat. Their lack of
aggressive tendencies make the ragdoll breed unsuitable to outdoor
life. Ragdolls generally lack the ability to defend
themselves in a fight.
Ragdolls are non-aggressive they make lovely pets for children to
be around. When ragdolls play they do so without using their
claws during a typical play session. Even when rough housing
with other cats ragdolls tend not to extend their claws.
word of caution with children and ragdoll cats:
are not suitable for hyperactive or aggressive children.
These cats have placid personalities and usually do not defend
themselves when provoked. This easily leads to the cat being
injured and he may even develop a fear of people. As with
all animals, small children should be well supervised when playing
with pets. Rough housing with any pet only encourages bad
play behavior and should be avoided.
