Ragdoll Princess is often asked to help identify Ragdoll colors and patterns, so we're creating this small guide to show what those colors and patterns look like. At Ragdoll Princess, we are able to produce a wide variety of colors, patterns, and overlays which makes our litters fun and full of surprises while meeting the many tastes of our beloved customers.

Blue Colorpoint Ragdoll


Blue Colorpoint Ragdolls are blue (gray) pointed cats without any white. Blue Point Ragdolls are the second most common color and pattern combination. The most common is Seal Point (also without white). We do not have any photos of Seal Colorpoints as we've never produced just a Seal Point to-date but may in the future.
