Latest of the Ragdolls; Simba (white) and Luna. Slight scrape on Luna's nose, either charging round the house or from Leo....

They are gorgeous cats. Are they house cats? Just my daughter wants a cat, I've had 2 moggies before that died of old age. I'd have another, but the house I'm buying is close to a main road. I kind of wondered if pedigree cats are more suited to being a house cat than a moggie. I like the thought of a big cat, I thought of a Maine Coon also, maybe too big though. It was the Ragdoll that I'd been thinking of mainly though.

Maine Coons are pretty high maintenance (they can be a bit of a diva) - and, as you say, they are rather large. Not really recommended for a purely indoor home.

If you're looking for even-tempered cuddly bears of a cat who are quite happy living indoors, might I suggest looking at Selkirk Rex? Selkirks, especially the boys, are rather chunky but not mahoosive. They're basically of the BSH body type (sizeable but solid), but with a curly coat. They come in both long and shorthaired coats and in a veritable rainbow of colours.

You can also get variant Selkirks who have straight rather than curly coats - they do crop up in some litters, as the original cats were outcrossed to BSH and Persians - but they have the same wonderful temperament.

Thanks for that. I've never heard of them, but they look really nice after searching. Thanks I appreciate it. She also mentioned a Munchkin, but I'm not sure about that one..
