The Ragdoll cat is known for its beautiful, long fur and distinctive markings. But did you know that some Ragdolls are born with blazes?

What does the term blaze mean in a Ragdoll?

A Blaze is a white patch located on the face of a cat. They can come in all shapes and sizes and appear as a spot, strip, hourglass, star or diamond shape that extends from the cat’s forehead to its nose.

The size and placement of the blaze may vary from cat to cat, but it is always a distinguishing characteristic of the breed. Some blazes are so large that they cover almost the entire forehead, while others are just a small patch of white.

Can all Ragdoll Cats have blaze markings?

Blazes are found on mitted Ragdolls that have the white spotting gene. The blaze is considered a breed standard in mitted Ragdolls but not in colorpoint or bicolor Ragdolls. If either of these two types has a white spot on their face, this would be considered to be a mismarking.

While mismarks are not desirable, they are not considered to be a defect and do not affect the cat’s health in any way. In fact, many people find mismarks to be quite adorable and consider them to be a unique part of the Ragdoll breed.

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!
