    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.

    Looking good. :wub:

    P.S. A non-colourpoint Ragdoll is actually called a Ragamuffin. ;)

    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..

    No, avoid munchkins at all costs. There is a good reason the GCCF (the UK cat equivalent of the Kennel Club) won't sanction the breed here in the UK. They look cute (although not to me) but they are very prone to joint and spine problems due to the reduced limb length. A bit like sausage dogs really, but sausage dogs don't jump about like a cat...

    Pretty much any Cat can be brought up as a housecat, just don't let em out and have em neutered, mind you when Maz and I got together my big ginger lad (who had been a 'flat cat') couldn't believe what a 'cat-flap' was, he was in and out every 5 minutes.
