What is a Cream Point Ragdoll? What does “Cream Point” mean in Ragdolls?

Cream Lynx Ragdoll
Cream Ragdoll cat

A Cream Point Ragdoll is a dilute of the Flame or Red Ragdoll cat. From a genetic perspective, that means two copies of a dilute allele will reproduce the required phenotype. Simply put, breeders will need two Cream Point Ragdoll parents for a pure Cream Point Ragdoll litter. 

The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) is the largest registry of pedigreed felines in the world. According to the CFA, the six recognized Ragdoll point colors are blue, seal, lilac, chocolate, cream, and red. And the association also describe Cream Point Ragdolls as having clear white bodies. If there is any shading, it has to match the color of the points.

Their points (ears, snouts, face, paws, and tail) can range in hues from light buff to pale pink cream. The CFA prefers Cream Point Ragdoll felines with no barring or stripes. They also have blue eyes and flesh or pink-colored nose and paw pads. 

Cream Points are available in colorpoint, bicolor, or mitted patterns. With the colorpoint variation, you can expect the cat’s mask, ears, paws, and tail to be a well-defined color. The nose and paw pads will correspond with the color of the points. 

Bicolor felines display point coloration on the ears, tails, and mask areas. You can observe an inverted ‘V’ shape around the outer edges of the eyes and white spotting on the upper body. Their chins, chests, and undersides are also white. 

Mitted Cream Points have a white blaze in the shape of a diamond, hourglass, or star placed between their foreheads and noses. The white fur starts at their chins and extends to their bellies. You’ll also notice white paws that look like mittens on their front legs and white fur on their hind legs (up to mid-thighs).

Like most Ragdolls, Cream Ragdoll are born white. Their color points don’t begin to show until they are at least ten (10) weeks old. Some felines can take longer to completely develop their coloration. For instance, some Cream Ragdoll cats may take up to two (2) to four (4) years of age to develop their Cream Point coloration. 

Are Cream Ragdolls rare?

Yes, Cream Ragdolls are rare. Breeders and cat enthusiasts estimate that cream is the rarest of all Ragdoll colors. In fact, only 3 percent of cat owners in the US have Cream Ragdolls.

Chocolate, Flame Point, and Lilac Ragdoll are also pretty unique, as only 4 percent of cat owners boast that they have one of these rare colored Ragdolls.  

Cream Ragdoll genetics

Understanding how Ragdoll Cream genetics work is important. That’s because you can look at the parents and predict the outcome of the litter’s physical appearance. As stated earlier, Cream Point Ragdolls are dilutes of the Red Ragdolls. 

When it comes to genetics, the dilute gene is responsible for altering coat color from red to cream or black to grey. Dilution occurs due to a ‘single base deletion’ or a mutation in the MLPH or melanophilin gene. 

DON’T MISS: Grey Ragdoll Cat (Complete Guide)

This gene is responsible for providing instructions for making melanophilin (a protein found in pigment-producing melanocytes). It’s also essential for transporting and distributing pigment granules or melanin. 

Cats with dilution have normal melanin synthesis, but the melanin itself is deposited unevenly in the coat. This results in clusters of melanin in different sizes and areas lacking pigment, which gives the impression of light coat color.

The dilution gene is also recessive, meaning cats must have two copies of the gene from both parents for the necessary coloration. 

The CFA states that male kittens inherit color genes from the mother, whereas females take one color gene from both parents. However, it’s highly recommended that both parents have the Cream Point genes to ensure the kittens have the dilution gene, as only a dilute cat (d/d) can pass on the gene to kittens.

These cats are medium to large in size and have wide-set ears that are moderately flared.

Their heads are proportionately large, with medium-length noses and strong chins. You can also expect the tails of Cream Point Ragdoll cat to be fluffy and long

Do all Cream Ragdolls have blue eyes?

Yes, all standard Ragdolls, including Creams, have blue eyes. Having blue eyes is necessary for a Ragdoll to be accepted as purebred, according to The International Cat Association (TICA). 

However, here’s what is tricky, though. All Ragdoll kittens are born with blue eyes, no matter what coat color they are. If the eye color of the kitten remains blue at the three-month mark, you can be sure of his pedigree. However, if the blue eye color changes, then it is likely a cross or mixed breed. 

Ragdolls with varying eye colors, such as Mink or Sepia Ragdolls, are not always recognized as purebreds, but this might not matter to many Ragdoll lovers. If you’re not planning on breeding purebred Ragdolls or showing your feline companions, then there’s really no need to worry about their eye color.  

Otherwise, Cream Ragdolls with blue eyes and Cream Ragdolls without blue eyes will have similar temperament and beauty.

Interestingly, depending on the demand, cats with varying eye colors might be more or less expensive than purebreds.

Yes, both The International Cat Association (TICA) and The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) recognize Cream as one of six recognized Ragdoll colors. The other five include chocolate, lilac, blue, seal, and red.

Additionally, both TICA and CFA recognize colorpoint, bicolor, and mitted patterns of the Cream Point Ragdoll type.

Cream Point vs Flame Point Ragdoll

The main difference between Cream Point and Flame Point Ragdoll is that Cream Point is a much lighter shade between red and light brown while Flame Point Ragdoll is a brighter orange shade. Cat owners should also note that a Cream Point Ragdoll is a dilute of the Flame or Red Ragdoll

What that means is that Cream colored Ragdoll cat carry a dilute gene (a type of mutation) that affects pigment distribution. This is what makes the cat’s fur look lighter than its flame point Ragdoll counterparts.

If one of the parents is missing the dilution gene, then it is possible that some (or all) of the kittens in the litter will not have the same coloration that Cream Points should have. 

Various Cream Point Ragdoll cat colors and patterns

Thus far, we’ve focused on what Cream Ragdolls look like and how they get their distinct coloration. Now, it’s time to discuss what other patterns and shades the Cream Point Ragdoll comes in.

A Cream bicolor Ragdoll cat is an appealing blend of the Cream Point colors and a bicolor pattern. These felines’ color points are confined to their masks, ears, saddle areas (lower backs), and tails. The point coloration can range from light brownish yellow to pale cream pink. 

The mask of a Ragdoll Cream bicolor features a white inverted V within the outer edges of the eyes. You can also expect a Cream Point bicolor Ragdoll to have a white chest, chin, and underside. Other distinguishing marks include pink or flesh-colored paw pads and nose leather.

According to the judging standards of the CFA, if a Cream bi color Ragdoll is missing the distinctive inverted V-shaped mark on his forehead, then he is disqualified. Another disqualifying characteristic of the Cream bicolour Ragdoll is extensive dark coloration on the legs. 

However, if you’re planning on adopting a Ragdoll bicolor Cream simply for the pleasure of his company, you don’t have to worry about his disqualifying features.

Another aspect that makes Cream Ragdolls the ideal family pet is that they get along spectacularly well with children of all ages and other pets in the house. They’re not aggressive, so you don’t have to stress about Ragdolls scratching anyone.

Cream Ragdoll cat training

If you’ve been asking whether Ragdolls are easy to train, the answer is yes. Although, you should note that every feline has his or her own unique personality, which may impact how quickly he or she learns new tricks. 

By and large, cat experts state that Cream Ragdolls and Ragdolls in general, are pretty easy to train when it comes to housetraining and walking on a leash.

Tricks like fetch can take a little longer and require cat parents to practice patience and perseverance. 

It is best to start training your feline with the easiest and most important tricks first. For instance, using the litter. Once your fluffy companions learn that, you can focus on walking with a leash.

Before you start training your Ragdoll, acclimate him to how a leash feels around his neck. Then you can introduce clickers and treats to get the desired results. 

Cream Ragdolls exercise requirement

Felines don’t require much effort in terms of fitness. Most experts suggest 15 minutes of exercise (play time) daily for cats. What’s more, you can divide those 15 minutes into multiple segments throughout the day. 

This will help keep your kittens interested in exercise. It is also an excellent way to bond with your Ragdoll.

You can use cat-friendly toys for this purpose, such as soft toys or interactive ones. Ragdoll cats aren’t big on climbing, so you might want to avoid ‘cat trees’ and instead opt for feather toys, tower tracks, and crinkle balls.

Cream Ragdoll grooming and cleaning 

Cream Ragdolls have silky coats and plushy tails. They are long haired cats, so grooming is a must if you want to avoid shedding or hairballs.

Besides brushing, grooming your Ragdoll also includes bathing and eye and ear care. Ideally, you’ll want to brush your kitty cat’s teeth daily or at least 3 to 4 times a week.

However, we know this can be quite impossible especially if you have a busy schedule. Therefore, you can use dental chews to keep your feline friend’s gums healthy. 

It is also a good idea to pay attention to their nails and trim them before they grow too long. If you don’t there could be scratches on your skin or your Ragdoll may start scratching your furniture. Therefore, it’s best to trim their nails at least every 2 weeks.

Here is a complete rundown of the Cream Ragdoll’s grooming needs:

Grooming TechniqueFrequency
Hair Brushing 2x a week for 15 minutes.
BathingOnce every 4-6 weeks.
Nail TrimmingEvery 2 weeks.
Teeth Health Brush 3-4x a week or give your feline good-quality dental chews once a day.
Eye CareGently wipe once a day to remove crust.
Ear CareWipe outer ears weekly.

Cream Point Ragdoll food and diet

Felines are obligate carnivores, meaning they do best on a meat-based diet. Their bodies need large amounts of animal-based proteins and other essential vitamins and minerals to stay healthy.

If you want to keep your Cream Ragdoll in optimal health, we highly recommend that you consult with your veterinarian regarding the best food to give your little fur babies. 

Generally, vets recommend dry foods for cats to avoid digestive and oral issues. However, since the dietary needs of Cream Ragdolls can vary according to age and health status, your vet might recommend a special diet.

Commercial food brands can also vary in ingredients based on the individual needs of a breed. For instance, breeds like Persians and Ragdolls with plenty of fur will need Omega 3 and 6 nutrients for coat health. 

Cat owners should bear in mind that when changing food brands, it’s best to introduce the new food incrementally. Doing so will help keep your kitten’s digestive system cope with the diet change and dodge problems like diarrhea.

Cream Point Ragdoll health issues 

All living things are prone to certain illnesses, and Ragdolls aren’t much different. Nonetheless, knowing what health issues your Cream Ragdoll may be prone to can help owners become more aware early on.

This means visiting the vet sooner than later so that health problems can be diagnosed early or living a healthier lifestyle to prevent these health issues.

Here are a few health conditions that Ragdolls are most susceptible to: 

1. Inbreeding

We’ve highlighted how Ragdolls are bred carefully to specific colors and patterns. The problem with selective breeding, however, is that using the same gene pool over and over again can lead to genetic defects or weaker immunity. 

Felines with weak immune systems are at greater risk of catching diseases and will have a difficult time fighting off infections without the help of medical intervention.

That is one of the reasons why Ragdoll breeders often give out three months or year-long health guarantees. This is to assure buyers that the cats come from a strong gene pool and don’t have compromised immunity or other health defects.

2. Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)

Ragdolls are prone to developing Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) that can affect their ureters, urethras, bladders, or kidneys.

Symptoms of UTIs include pain while urinating, constant grooming, blood in urine, and incontinence to name a few. If you suspect your feline companion is suffering from urinary tract infection, we highly recommend that you bring him to the vet as soon as possible.

3. Obesity

Ragdolls are not high-energy cats. They have a laid-back temperament and are okay with spending their days lazing away. If you overlook their daily exercise needs, they may be at risk of developing obesity. 

While the best cure for overweight Ragdolls is exercise, the treatment for obese cats will depend on how bulky they are. At times, your vet may recommend portioning your little furball’s diet to help him speed up weight loss. 

The good news is that you do not need to figure out the right amount of portion for your four-legged friends all on your own. You can reach out to your vet or any veterinary professional. They will help you figure out the best portion for your Ragdoll so he can lose weight safely and in a healthy manner.

4. Hairballs

Cats are pretty efficient at grooming themselves. You’ll often notice your Ragdoll licking his fur to keep them clean. However, for moderate to long hair cats, licking the coat can also mean swallowing a fair amount of hair. 

If your feline is unable to throw up the hair that was collected in his digestive system, it can lead to problems like lethargy, vomiting, and general malaise.

That’s why it’s essential to keep up with your feline companion’s grooming schedule to ensure he doesn’t swallow more hair than he needs to. 

Cream Point Ragdoll lifespan

Cream Point Ragdolls have an average life expectancy of 10 to 15 years. The oldest Ragdoll on record lived up to 32 years! Regarding a cat’s lifespan, feline lovers should note that these numbers take a few things for granted. 

For instance, factors like the absence of disease, quality of life, or quality of care can affect how long your furry friends may live. If you provide your Ragdoll with a high-quality diet and keep up with his veterinary appointments, then there’s no reason why your fluffy friend won’t live a long and healthy life. 

Cream Point Ragdoll breeder

Experts recommend buying your Cream Point Ragdoll from reputable and ethical breeders instead of from pet stores because there’s a better chance of getting a healthier cat.

Responsible breeders will typically have vaccinated kittens that grow up around the breeder’s family and have space to play. In this way, they are properly socialized and housetrained. 

Breeders also adhere to breeding and housing standards for felines, which means the cats grow up in a healthy environment with little to no exposure to severe illnesses.

Finally, breeders also offer health guarantees with DNA reports that vouch for a feline’s overall health. 

Cream Point Ragdoll kitten

Many feline enthusiasts prefer bringing home their Cream Point Ragdoll as kittens to increase the chances of bonding and so it is easier to train them. If you have similar plans, adopting or buying a Cream Ragdoll kitten at 12 to 14 weeks of age is best. 

This will ensure the kitten has had plenty of time to spend with his mother and litter to pick up important developmental and life skills, such as grooming and socializing.

Separating a kitten from his mother before the three months can not only affect his social skills, training, and development but also can impact his health. 

For that reason, look for Cream Ragdoll kittens that are at least three-months old which will ensure that he is ready to leave his mother and be with his forever family.  

Cream Point Ragdoll price 

The price of Cream Point Ragdolls can range from $800 to $2,000, depending on their pedigree. Show-quality Cream Point Ragdolls can start from $2,500 to $4,000.

It’s also important to note that prices can vary between breeders and different states. 

The Cream bicolor Ragdoll price range can be pretty similar to Cream Point Ragdolls, seeing as how there is only a difference in patterns between the two.

Still, Cream bicolor Ragdoll cost might be slightly higher than Cream Point Ragdolls as they are somewhat rarer and require two purebred parents. Cream bicolor seems to more expensive in Australia and the United States due to popularity and high demand.
