​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Ragdoll has a bunny soft, semi-longhair coat which does not require extensive grooming. Ragdoll kittens are born white, acquiring their coloring and coat pattern as they age. Full color development may not be evident until 2-3 years of age.  


The coat patterns of the Ragdolls are: colorpoint, mitted, bicolor & lynx (tabby markings in one of the three previous patterns).​​​​​​​


Colorpoint Ragdolls have coloring on their mask (face), ears, legs, paws, and tail. No white is allowed anywhere on their coat. Colorpoints have lighter bodies where there are no points. 


Mitted Ragdolls have coloring on their mask (face) with a white chin, colored ears, a colored tail, and colored front legs up until their evenly matched white mittens or "mitts" as some people and breeders call them, Mitted Ragdolls have a white stomach stripe from their white chin up until their crotch, and white legs)


Ears, mask and tail are colored in one of the point-color varieties. The mask shows an inverted white "V". Belly and all legs are completely white. The body is a shade lighter than the point-color and shows white and colored patches. Nose and paw pads are pink.


Lynx' shows dark stripes in bodycolor in addition to one of the patterns and colors mentioned above. The inside of the ears is always white and the nose is brick-colored. A specialty of the Lynx is that they can unite two patterns.
