Our Minks

 

 

The Mink Ragdoll is not a new breed or a new pattern of Ragdoll cat; it’s a bloodline that can be traced back to the first Ragdoll cats bred by Ann Baker.  They’re called “Minks” because their coat is even smoother than the coat of the traditional Ragdolls — the mink’s fur actually feels like a lady’s mink stole.  While many breeders are choosing to work with only the traditional Ragdoll lines, more and more Ragdoll breeders are falling in love with the lush, dark coats and exotic colored eyes of the mink, and choosing to continue the old mink lines.

While Minks and Traditionals are both pure Ragdolls, there are a few differences between them.  Mink Ragdoll kittens are born with color.  Traditional Ragdoll kittens are born white.  The point color of the mink is much richer and darker than the point color of the traditional Ragdoll. But Minks still come in all the standard colors of seal, blue, chocolate, lilac, flame, cream, tortie and blue/cream.  Minks also come in all the standard patterns: Colorpoint, Mitted,  Bi-color and Lynx (Tabby)

The eye color of the traditional Ragdoll and the Mink Ragdoll is also a distinguishing feature. In the traditional Ragdoll the eye color is always blue, whereas the Mink Ragdoll typically has gorgeous aqua (blue-green) eyes.  We have been working on our same mink lines for 13 years – trying to improve with each generation – as a result, we are able to produce minks with blue eyes

Most importantly, Minks have the same characteristics as traditional Ragdolls.  They are large, lovey, docile, floppy, puppy cats.
Other than having different markings, an SBT purebred TICA registered Mink Ragdoll is exactly that — a true Ragdoll.
