Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Am I a Raggamuffin or Ragdoll?

:-h Hi kitties! Sorry if I didn\'t post this in the right place. But my momma knows more about dogs than kitties. I am a \"mix\" kitty; obviously with some Siamese in me. A lady who works with my mom, who IS a kitty person, asked mom if I was a Ragdoll or Raggamuffin? Mom said, well, that I am a Siamese mix and then the lady said, well, yes, that is what a Raggamuffin is. (Can\'t remember if she actually refured to me as a Raggamuffin or Ragdoll.) SO - could any of you wonderful kitty people explain to my momma what a Raggamuffin/Ragdoll is and whether or not I fall in that catagory? (I have 2 of my brothers that live with me, Friskey and Smokey. And Friskey is colored like an orange Tabby and Smokey looks like a Blue Tip Siamese.) Thank you all for helping my momma out with this!!!!!!;)

    Ragdolls and Ragamuffins are both products of selective breeding, so the answer is neither! You are a DSH/Siamese mix. ;c;

    Hi! I am brand new on here, lol, so hope this comes out right. :-h Ragdolls and Ragamuffins are both long haired breeds. I gave you a link to both breeds, so you can read about each one. Hope this helps, and hope this comes out right, looking forward to talking to people who love their cats as much as I do. :^:

    Since you have short hair, you actually look more like a Snowshoe, which is like a Siamese with white markings. I am one, but most of us have some white on our faces too. I only have the white feet and bib, and white markings on my tummy.
