First of all, you must decide how much you want to get a kitten. You must remember that the cat will live with you for a long time and it can not be thrown out into the street if your desires change. A kitten is not a flower pot, but an active living being, an animal with its quirks and instincts. Appearing in a new home, the kitten Ragdoll will want to explore everything. During this period, maximum attention should be paid to him. At first, the kitten is frightened and runs away from everything moving, including the owner and all members of his family, but this quickly passes, and the moment comes when both sides begin to enjoy each other’s company. As the kitten grows, the owner’s responsibility for the life and health of the pet grows, so you need a lot of time and effort. Ragdolls adapt very easily to conditions and are suitable for cramped apartments, and for large spacious houses with open spaces. But Ragdoll should never be left alone on the street, only under the supervision of the owner and on a leash. Due to the massiveness of the body and because of the relaxation caused by weak muscle tone, Ragdolls are prone to injury. Like any cats, Ragdolls love high places, but any fall from a height can lead to a fracture of the limbs. Sometimes they do not have time to group and injure internal organs.

Ragdoll is sometimes regarded as a breed that needs some care. But the Ragdolls need as much attention as any other cat. It may seem that long silky hair requires a lot of work. But thanks to its wool structure, caring for it is simple. A small undercoat prevents wool from falling off, and molting is minimized. It is enough to comb the cat once a week to remove dead hairs and tangles (which are rare). Not all owners bathe their cats, although grooming is required before the shows. Most cats tolerate bathing patiently but can express their dissatisfaction while drying and combing. If you start grooming earlier, then the kitten will get used to this procedure faster, and the easier it will be for you, and the cat herself will perceive it with great pleasure.
The health of the Ragdolls is generally not a concern. The kitten should receive the necessary vaccinations from childhood. A conscientious breeder sends his kittens to new homes already vaccinated against a complex of infections. Regarding hereditary and other diseases, Ragdolls are prone to kidney disease. For example, polycystic (has a hereditary character), hydronephrosis (due to any congenital reasons or as a result of polycystic). Therefore, it is important to purchase a kitten from a breeder who can provide certain health guarantees.
