Tortie Ragdoll Cat

The word Tortie is an abbreviation of Tortoiseshell as the coat resembles the mottled shell of a tortoise. The coat of the Tortie Ragdoll cat combines two colors other than white, either closely mixed or appearing in larger patches.  Tortie Ragdoll cats are always female. Tortie Ragdoll Cats may also present with Lynx markings.

Tortie cats are not to be confused with Calico cats. There are a few key differences between a tortie and a calico. For starters, a tortie is a cat with two colors in its coat, while a calico has three. Secondly, torties tend to have more of an even mix of color in their fur, while calicos tend to have large patches of color. A Ragdoll cat can only be tortie and not calico.
