What is a Bicolor Ragdoll Cat?
A Bicolor Ragdoll has an inverted and symmetrical V mask marking on its face. The color on a Bicolor Ragdoll is restricted to its ears, tail, mask and ‘saddle’ area. Its legs and feet are all white, along with its chin, chest and underside area. The Bicolor Ragdoll will usually have pink paw pads and nose leather.
A Bicolor Ragdoll can present in one of four varieties: The ‘True Bicolor’, the High Mitted, the Mid High White and the High White – which is also referred to as Van.
A True Bicolor has a solid colored saddle whereas the saddle of the Mid High White is broken up by the white coloring on the Ragdoll’s back.
The High Mitted Bicolor has a larger colored mask area on their face with a smaller inverted V than the True Bicolor. They also have coloring on their front legs although their paws will remain white.
Both High Mitted and Mid High White Bicolor Ragdolls do not fit with the breed standard and therefore are not accepted into shows.
The High White, or Van, Bicolor has color restricted to its points – the ears, tail and mask. Its body, legs and feet are all pure white. The Van Bicolor Ragdoll is accepted by the Cat Fanciers Association as breed standard.
