Maine Coon Ragdoll Mix: Complete Guide

Large domesticated cats have always fascinated me because they are like cute, mini lions without that fierce attitude. And, incidentally, I happen to come across one when I visited a friend one day and saw this gorgeous, beautiful creature sitting atop her sofa.

She told me that it is a half Ragdoll and half Maine Coon cat that she recently adopted after her previous cat passed away. This Ragcoon Mix, as she calls it, is eye-catching in many ways with its plush, thick coat and piercing blue eyes. 

So, in this article, I have collected some useful information about the Maine Coon Ragdoll Mix which is just as strikingly good looking as the Bengal Siamese Mix, which is another interesting cat hybrid that combines the best of both worlds.

Ragdoll history

The Ragdoll was developed by Ann Baker in Riverside, California during the 1960s. She crossed a white Angora-type cat with several Birman and Burmese-like cats that produced a cat with a Siamese-like point coloration.

The offspring also has a distinctive placid and docile temperament that goes limp when carried, which gave Baker the idea to call it the Ragdoll.

Due to its popularity, many Ragdoll Mix cats have sprouted over the years like the Ragdoll Siamese Mix and the Ragdoll British Shorthair Mix

Maine Coon history

As their name suggests, the Maine Coon originated from the state of Maine where they have been popular since the 19th century. Some believed they are related to the Norwegian forest cats that were brought by the early American settlers. 

The breed almost became extinct in the 1950s and efforts to revive it took some time before the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) granted it championship status in 1976 when its numbers were sufficient enough to be recognized. 

Today, there are several mixes of the breed that are becoming popular, such as the Maine Coon Bengal Mix and the Maine Coon American Shorthair Mix.

The Ragcoon is an intelligent mixed breed and can be trained to follow commands and even perform practical tricks.

Ragcoon kittens can be trained as soon as you bring them home and using positive reinforcements, like cat treats and praises, will go a long way to motivate them to follow you. 

They can be taught to walk on a leash but should be introduced slowly to give them time to adjust. You can also teach them to “sit,” “stay,” and “come” just like you would a dog.

Keeping the training sessions short is recommended to prevent them from getting bored.

Ragdoll and Maine Coon Mix grooming and cleaning

Ragdoll and Maine Coon Mix are long-haired cats that require regular grooming. The grooming process can be tedious so it’s advisable for owners to begin training their Ragdoll Maine Coon Mix kittens to get used to being brushed and cleaned up as early as possible. 


To maintain knot-free and glossy fur, brushing should be done as often as possible. Also, brushing removes dirt, debris, and other particles from your cat’s fur.

Use a de-shedding tool like FURminator to lessen the amount of shedding to as much as 90%. 

Other brushes that are perfect for Ragdoll and Maine Coon cat mix are a de-matting comb and grooming gloves which are also proven to remove dead hair and stimulate blood circulation.

This, in turn, encourages oil distribution to improve skin and fur conditions. 


Cats have built-in tools for grooming and these are their tongue and teeth. They are good at keeping themselves clean so you don’t have to bathe your Ragdoll and Maine Coon cat mix all the time.

But if she gets dirty and smelly, give her a quick bath using a cat shampoo that only contains mild ingredients.

Teeth Brushing

Whoever says cats do need any help in the oral health department is wrong. Cats with dental problems like gingivitis will have a hard time eating.

So, it’s recommended to brush your cat’s teeth at least thrice a week using enzymatic cat toothpaste. You can also give dental chews for her to gnaw on because these are also helpful in controlling tartar formation. 

Nail Clipping

Long and sharp nails can hurt you and damage your furniture. So, make it part of your usual routine to check if it’s time for some manicure/pedicure pampering.

Use a clipper designed for cats and trim just the tip to prevent you from accidentally cutting the quick, a part that is very sensitive and may cause bleeding.

Don’t panic if bleeding occurs, apply styptic powder to stop bleeding. 

Ear/Eye Cleaning

Wipe crusty gunk from your cat’s eyes using moistened cotton balls to prevent eye infections. The same is true with the ears, excessive ear wax that is not cleared may lead to fungal or bacterial ear infections. 

Grooming Needs Grooming Frequency 
Brushing 3x per week
Bathing 1x per month or fewer
Teeth Brushing 3x per week
Nail Clipping 2x per month 
Ear/Eye Cleaning Check weekly 

Are Maine Coon Ragdoll Mix hypoallergenic?

No, a Maine Coon Ragdoll cat is not hypoallergenic. Regardless of breed, cats produce a specific protein called Fel d1 protein.

Cats are obsessed with keeping their fur clean, so each time they lick their fur, the saliva containing the Fel d1 protein dries up and becomes an allergen. 

If you or anyone in your family has feline allergy, it’s a good idea to invest in an air purifier with a HEPA filter.

Air purifiers with HEPA filters works by treating almost 99% of air impurities including the ones your feline friends produce.

As a result, you will breathe fresher and cleaner oxygen while you’re at home. You can say good-bye to runny nose and eye redness!

Do Ragdoll Maine Coon Mix shed?

Yes, Ragdoll Maine Coon Mix do shed and there are two (2) seasons when the shedding becomes worse. These seasons are spring and autumn, so brushing the fur should be more frequent. 

To keep your home looking its best during these high-shedding periods, consider using a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter in your cleaning routine.

These HEPA filters are designed to capture even the tiniest particles, such as pet dander and hair, down to 0.3 microns.

Using a HEPA-filtered vacuum allows you to effectively manage shed fur and dander, ensuring that your home and the air you breathe are clean.

You can now focus on enjoying the loving companionship of your Ragdoll Maine Coon Mix without the hassle of incessant cleaning or allergy flare-ups.

Ragdoll Mixed with Maine Coon food and diet

As obligate carnivores, cats do not need vegetables as much as they need meat. The two important components present in a cat’s food should be protein and taurine, both of which are present in animal meat like chicken and fish. 

Ideally, Maine Coon and Ragdoll Mix kittens should eat wet/canned food due to its high moisture content.

But, a mixture of wet/canned and dry cat food is also a great option.

Maine Coon and Ragdoll Mix kittens have different dietary needs from adult and senior cats. The great news though is the available cat food for all life stages in the market today.

Be sure to choose the one with the AAFCO stamp on the package. This ensures that the cat food contains all the necessary ingredients for growth and maintenance.
