    Hi everyone

    My brain in numb with all the research I have been doing, and i am still no closer to finding my answer lol.

    I have a 10 week old kitten which i am lead to believe is a blue Colourpoint persian, Someone on Monday mentioned about him looking like a Ragdoll.

    Could someone PLEASE explain to me the differences between the 2 (it does not matter to me which one he is as he is loved to pieces, but it would be nice to know one way or the other)

    Dani

    The two breed standards are very different. I presume as you kitten is only 10 weeks old that he didn't come with registraton papers, a 5 generation pedigree or from a 'proper' breeders.

    First pic is a blue colour point ragdoll

    Second pic blue (tabby) colourpoint persian

    As you can see there is a great difference in head shape. Pics of your boy may help too. Hope this helps.

    Although the eyes are very pale in colour and they look a bit oriental in the first picture the kitten certainly has a Ragdoll look about it. What were they advertised as and what did the breeder tell you ?
