Ragdoll history

The Ragdoll was developed during the 1960s by Ann Baker in Riverside, California. The matriarch of the breed is a non-pedigreed, domestic long-haired female, named Josephine. 

Baker then crossed this female with several cats she owned eventually producing offspring over several generations with a colorpoint coat and a docile temperament. She named it Ragdoll because the cat tended to go limp when carried.

Blue point Lynx Ragdoll Cat exercise requirement

I engage my Blue Point Lynx Ragdoll Cat in a 10 to 15-minute exercise 2 to 3 times daily. She prefers short bursts of physical activity and is more content lounging around our house most of the day. 

I recommended exercises that include interactive games like chasing a laser pointer or a fishing pole toy. They can also be taken for short walks while on a leash or harness to mentally stimulate their senses and let them explore new things and situations.

Ragdoll Blue Lynx point grooming and cleaning 

I began grooming my Ragdoll Blue Lynx as soon as I brought her home. I invested in some tools to manage her long and luscious coat. Let me share with you grooming and cleaning tips for a Ragdoll Blue Lynx point cat:


  • First, I get a wide-tooth comb to untangle the mats. On some days, I also use a flea comb to take care of stubborn mats.
  • Second, I brush her coat with a de-shedding brush to get rid of loose and dead hair. I also find this tool great to minimize shedding. 
  • Lastly, I rely on a soft-bristled brush to distribute the natural oil to make her coat softer and shinier. 


Cats are by nature clean animals. Their tongues are made up of millions of rough particles called papillae that work like a body scrub. 

This is why I only bathe my cat when she gets in contact with sticky particles or when she starts to emit a bad smell. I use a feline-friendly shampoo that is devoid of strong detergents. 

Teeth Brushing

I don’t take for granted cleaning her teeth and gums because if I do, it will lead to periodontal diseases. 

I use a small toothbrush for cats so I can reach the corners of her mouth. It’s best to use an enzymatic toothpaste because it does not contain peroxide and is available in different flavors that my kitty loves.  

Nail Trimming

I always trim the nails of our Blue Lynx Ragdoll. This is to avoid her from accidentally scratching the skin of my kids while playing. And, since she is an indoor kitty, her ‘manicured nails’ prevent her from damaging carpet and upholstered sofas. 

I cut just the tip of her nails to prevent me from cutting the pink portion or the quick. Admittedly though, I sometimes got too close to the quick, so bleeding happened. Having styptic powder in hand is very helpful in stopping the bleeding. 

Ear/Eye Cleaning

I don’t neglect cleaning the eyes and ears of our cat. A simple moistened cotton ball is all it takes to get rid of ear wax and eye boogers. This simple routine prevents infections that can worsen over time. 

Grooming NeedsGrooming Frequency
Hair Brushing3 – 4x weekly
Nail Trimming2x/month
Teeth Brushing2 -3x weekly 
BathingOnce a month or fewer
Eye CareCheck weekly
Ear CareCheck weekly

Do Blue Lynx Ragdoll shed a lot? 

Shedding is a natural process that keeps her coat healthy. So, yes, our Blue Lynx Ragdoll sheds her coat year-round but it gets worse during spring and fall.  

But, my family and I are not bothered because I use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter. The strong suction power of the vacuum cleaner picks up even the tiniest particles, such as cat litter, cat fur and dander, thereby, keeping our house clean.

Are Blue Lynx Ragdolls hypoallergenic?

No, a Blue Lynx Ragdoll can cause allergic reactions in sensitive people. This is due to the Fel d1 protein that is present in the saliva and sebaceous glands. 

Thankfully, I found an effective way to keep our indoor air clean and allergen-free.

I use an air purifier with a HEPA filter which I found effective in capturing allergens and in eliminating pet odor around our home.
