Madeleine the Ragamuffin

Posted Jun 24, 2014

My experience with the Ragamuffin breed has been very positive. I acquired Madeleine from a shelter, and she did come home with a few unattractive habits. When in a kennel for travel, or locked in a room she became very vocal and would yell until her voice went hoarse. She had been in the shelter her entire life, and developed bad habits from closed doors. Despite this, she is a very good cat. I have owned her for three years, and she is very affectionate and loving. True to her breed, she goes limp as a rag when picked up, and while she does appear to be mixed with a Domestic short hair, she also possesses the typical double coat of the ragamuffin that requires little grooming.

She is friendly around strangers, and gets along well with both other cats and dogs. While she is not extremely active, she does play sometimes but she prefers to lay on the bed or couch with me. She is also easy to train, and as I live in an apartment, she has been trained to walk outside on a lead and harness. She only needed a week to become used to the harness and lead. Now, as soon as the harness comes out, she runs to the front door to get ready for a walk.
