Thanks, Jean! Yes, the avatar is darker. She looked just like the photo with that white furry ruff. I used to bury my face in her neck and snuzzle her. I took some of the fur to my knitting group and one of the women took a bit of it and spun it in her fingers. It worked beautifully. Now if I'd only saved all that fur over those 19 yrs.....

They don't seem to know exactly which cats were bred to create Ragdolls. There's a lot of speculation and the original creator of them seems to be a little wacky. I think it's probably safe to say it was some combination of Birman and or Himalayan and another cat. Most of the Ragdolls I've seen look more like a Birman.
