Ragdolls are very loyal and like to be with their owners and share in whatever you are doing.
Ragdolls are very smart and some can be taught to fetch, shake hands, roll over, and sit up and beg.
Ragdolls, once they are comfortable with you, can relax completely and go limp in your arms if they wish.
Ragdoll voices are very quiet with soft meows.
Ragdolls must be kept indoors, because they do not inherently have fighting instincts.
