History

The Ragdoll history dates back to 1964, in Riverside, Calif, when Ann Baker’s first kittens were born.

According to writer Wain Pearce, in 1963, Ann borrowed a Sacred Cat of Burma from her neighbors, and bred it with Josephine, her white Angora. The duo produced Daddy Warbucks. Ann also acquired Josephine’s daughter, Buckwheat, from her neighbors.

Daddy Warbucks and Josephine produced Fugianna, and these cats became the foundation in creating the Ragdoll breed. Josephine, Daddy Warbucks, Fugianna, and Buckwheat were the original “Fab Four.” Of these four, only Daddy Warbucks and Fugianna were registered as Ragdolls by the National Cat Fanciers Association (NCFA) in 1966.

Ragdoll Coloring

At the beginning of the breed, it was of utmost importance to keep inbreeding to a minimum to expand the gene pool. Ann established what she referred to as a “light side” and a “dark side.”

Ann believed that better litters were achieved when employing the light side/dark side theory. Fugianna was the light side. Buckwheat was the dark side. Ann mated Daddy Warbucks to Buckwheat, and they produced a litter of four kittens in the summer of 1965- two solid-colored kittens and two pointed ones. Ann named the two solids Gueber & Mitts. The two pointed kittens were a seal mitted male named Kyoto, and a seal colorpoint named Tiki.

Kyoto, Tiki, Daddy Warbucks and Fugianna were the first cats Ann registered as Ragdolls on December 30, 1966. The two solids were never registered as Ragdolls.
