Colors and Patterns

Seal Point

The seal color is a rich dark brown. The shading is similar in color to the animal that you might see glimmering in the sun and floating on a buoy off the coast of California!

A kitten with a Point pattern will have coloring other than white on his paws, ears, nose and tail. The colored parts will continue to darken until a Ragdoll is between 2 and 4 years old. The white markings will remain white.

Seal Lynx Mitted

A kitten who is considered “Lynx” will have a striped characteristic in addition to the regular colors and patterns. The stripes can vary greatly just like fingerprints or the stripes on a zebra or tiger. Other terms for “Lynx” are “tabby” or “agouti”. This feature will also show a white line around the eyes as if they are wearing eyeliner. There is also an “M” pattern on their forehead.

The Lynx trait can be found in any color and pattern.

Blue Point

The color is blue…so why is it called blue? Perhaps for the same reason that “seal” is called “seal” and not “dark brown” – it has a classier ring to it! It could also be due to the color having bluish underlying tones.

A kitten with a Point pattern will have coloring other than white on his paws, ears, nose and tail. The colored parts will continue to darken until a Ragdoll is between 2 and 4 years old. The white markings will remain white.

Flame or Red Point

Both “Flame” and “Red” are orange in color. TICA recognizes this color as “Red” while CFA has labeled it “Flame”. Our opinion is that “Flame” is a better description which is why you’ll see our kittens classified as “Flame”.

Cream Point

The Cream color is a diluted Flame or Red. Similar to creamsicle ice cream, a light orange color or peach color will be present. Because the cream and flame colors can be so similar while ragdoll kittens are young, oftentimes the only way to know the color for certain is by DNA testing.
