The Cinnamon Ragdoll cat is a non-traditional Ragdoll, sitting alongside Mink, Sepia and Solid Ragdoll Cats.

What does a Cinnamon Ragdoll Cat look like?

A cinnamon Ragdoll Cat is a reddish-brown color. They can have a light cream body with light brown points if they are a colorpoint or can be completely cinnamon in color if they are a solid type. Their eye color may be blue, aqua, green or gold.  A Fawn Ragdoll Cat is a dilute of cinnamon. Cinnamon Ragdolls can present in the traditional patterns of bicolor, mitted and colorpoint plus the non-traditional mink, sepia and solid types.

What is the History of the Cinnamon Ragdoll Cat?

Dr. Maxine Stiles, a veterinarian and geneticist, of Dollnouveau Ragdolls,  and Sharon Steadman of Lattedolls, introduced the cinnamon gene into the Ragdoll breed in the early 2000s by outcrossing an Abyssinian cat.

Is a Cinnamon Ragdoll a purebred Ragdoll Cat?

Many cat associations do not accept the Cinnamon Ragdoll as a purebred Ragdoll Cat.

The breed standard across many cat associations, including the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA), state that a traditional Ragdoll can only present in the colors blue, seal, lilac, chocolate, flame and cream and the patterns of mitted, colorpoint and bicolor with tortie or lynx variations.  It is also stated that a Ragdoll must have blue eyes to be classed as a purebred Ragdoll Cat.

Minks, sepias, and solids (along with cinnamon and black) are not registered as a purebred Ragdoll Cat with all cat associations and they are not currently accepted as championship breeds in North America. Many Ragdoll clubs do not allow breeders of this variation to join or advertise their non-blue eyed kittens.

The International Cat Association (TICA) is one cat association that will issue official papers to these exotic Ragdoll types stating that it is purebred, without any clauses or distinctions. However, these cats would be disqualified from a championship competition for not conforming to breed standard.

I'm Jennie, the creator of Ragdoll Cats World. I have been owned and loved by Ragdoll Cats for almost twenty years after getting my first Ragdoll kittens, Huey and Choo-Choo back in 2003. They lived to the grand old age of 18 and 17 and they even made the move from London to Australia with me! We now have two Ragdoll cats, Violet and Ocean, and a Maine Coon cat named Eddie, and we love sharing our knowledge of all things related to Ragdoll Cats with you at Ragdoll Cats World!
