Old Dominion Rags

Ragdoll History

  • Breed was developed by Ann Baker nearly 50 years ago, with the first kittens named as Ragdolls born in 1965. ​
  • Ann's first cats she began the breed with were: Josephine, Daddy Warbucks, Fugianna, and Buckwheat – the four cats that our beautiful Ragdolls are descended from. Of these four, only Daddy Warbucks and Fugianna were registered as Ragdolls in the National Cat Fanciers Association (NCFA) in 1966.
  • Ann borrowed from her neighbors, the Pennels, a cat with an appearance of the Sacred Cat of Burma. She bred this cat to Josephine,  a white angora cat- this breeding  produced Daddy Warbucks. Ann also acquired Josephine’s daugher, Buckwheat, from her neighbors, the Pennels. Ann mated Daddy Warbucks to Josephine- a mating producing  Fugianna. These became the foundation cats in creating the Ragdoll breed. It is from these four cats: Josephine, Daddy Warbucks, Fugianna, and Buckwheat – that Ragdolls are descended. 
  • Denny and Laura Dayton are credited with bringing the Ragdoll breed to worldwide recognition by various cat registration organizations. They purchased a breeding pair of kittens from Ann in 1969, which was the first known record of Ann selling her Ragdolls. The Dayton's named their two cats Buddy and Rosie.  
  • The Ragdoll breed was selectively bred over many years for desirable traits, such as large size, gentle demeanor, and a tendency to go limp when picked up.
  • To read about the early days of the Ragdoll Breed, the Ragdoll Historical Society details Ann's beginning with the breed and sequential information about the early years of our beautiful Ragdoll Breed.

What Is A Traditional Ragdoll?

  • Original Ragdolls- fully traced to Ann Baker's four Original Cats:  Raggedy Ann Daddy Warbucks, Josephine, Blackie, and Beauty.
