Ragdollcatsworld.com reported that "the Ragdoll flop" is a common trait of the breed wherein they become very floppy upon being picked up, or when they simply flop on the floor, exposing their bellies.

One user commented: "My Dad had a cat that used to wait for him at the end of the street. Then he'd have to open the door to his van for her to ride home with him," while another commented: "when my ragdoll hears her dad come home she runs to the front door, gets in her "act natural" position and does the same roll fancy meeting u here".

In 2021, the Ragdoll was named most popular breed by the Cat Fanciers' Association for the fourth year in a row.

Ragdolls cost anywhere from $800 to $2,000, depending on the state in which they're purchased, and many owners keep their pets inside.

Described as "docile and sweet" and "popular with families" by Purina, the breed was effectively man-made, being created in the early 1960s by California-based breeder Anne Baker. She used an Angora-type male with white gloves and boots in a Siamese color, and a solid black female to produce her first Ragdoll cats. According to Purina, the aim was to create a laidback and "glamorous" cat breed, less aloof than the standard cat and good for families.

Describing their personalities, Purina said: "The Ragdoll cat personality will give the impression that they're nothing but a very cuddly dog. In fact, you might even notice them waiting patiently for their owners to come back home or carrying around in their teeth their favorite toys. Not to mention, they absolutely adore fetch time."

Users were delighted by the breed's adorable behavior.

User Montellarags commented: "There's the typical 'Ragdoll flop and roll ' right there. Love it!".

User Bee Witch said: "Runing to greet daddy when he gets home. Too frikken cute!".

User HalfBloodPug wrote: "'you have lots to learn little one, make the human come to you'."
