Since this cat is a mixed breed, you can never be sure what kind of personality or characteristics the kitten will inherit. Both the Maine Coon and Ragdoll are similar breeds in terms of size and personality, so their kittens tend to inherit many of the same traits.

The appearance of a Maine Coon Ragdoll can mix can vary greatly, as although both cats are considered to be one of the largest breeds of domestic cats, their physical appearance is very different.

There are six Ragdoll cat colors – seal, blue, chocolate, lilac, flame and cream – and three patterns – bicolor, colorpoint and mitted, with variations of lynx and tortie. Maine Coons, on the other hand, come in a variety of patterns and colors. According to the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) there can be up to 75 color and pattern variations for the Maine Coon!

The Maine Coons eye color can range from green to gold and they can even have odd-color eyes, as opposed to traditional Ragdolls who can only have blue eyes.

The Ragdoll Cat has a shorter tail than the huge bushy tail of the Maine Coon, and their ears are smaller in comparison. The Maine Coon has very distinctive pointy ears that have tufts on the edges. Both cats are known for their long silky fur.

The Ragdoll Cat is a smaller and more delicate-looking cat than the Maine Coon. They typically have rounder heads with softer features, while the Maine Coon typically has a more rugged look.
