Mitted Seal point Ragdoll

Seal Mitted Ragdoll Cat is a variation of the Ragdoll with seal-colored points on the face, ears, legs, and tail. They also have white furs in the front and back paws, as well as, on the chin and chest.

What does “Seal Mitted” mean? 

“Seal” refers to the brownish-black color of the points, while “mitted” is a particular pattern of the points. Ragdolls come in three (3) different coat patterns, namely the colorpoint, bicolor, and mitted. 

What is “Mitted”?

Mitted Ragdolls have the characteristic white paws that give the impression that they are wearing mitts or boots. The white fur in the front paws only goes up to the ankle, while it can reach up to mid-thigh level in the back paws.

Seal Mitted Ragdolls genetics

There are several genes responsible for the Seal Point Ragdoll Mitted to look the way they do.

First is the gene that controls melanin production in their coat. This gene is temperature-sensitive, meaning there is more color in areas where it is cooler. This is why Ragdolls have darker points in their extremities.

The other gene is for color: “B” for seal/dark brown and “b” for chocolate. A pair of alleles with just one dominant “B” will produce a seal color.

Another gene controls the color density, namely, “D” for dense and “d” for dilute. One dominant “D” in the pairing will produce either a seal or chocolate, while two “d”s will dilute the color, which in the case of a seal will dilute into blue color.

Therefore, a Seal Ragdoll must have one of the following combinations:

  • BBDD.
  • BBDd.
  • BbDD.
  • BbDd.

The mitted pattern, on the other hand, is caused by a specific “white spotting” gene called the “S2” for a mitted pattern. This gene does not affect coat color but only the pattern.

Are Seal Mitted Ragdolls rare?

No, Seal Mitted Ragdolls are not rare. The Seal color is the most prevalent color among Ragdolls, and the mitted pattern is very common.
