    I heard people talking about their cats being ragdolls and moggies. What's the difference? Does it depend on the breed?

    Thanks!

    Ragdolls are a pedigree breed whereas moggies are not pedigree.

    Ragdolls are one of my favourites along with Ragamuffins, and Bengals. But unfortunately I have never been able to afford one so have moggies.

    moggies are cats that have no heritage - i.e no one really knows who the father is most of the time and certainly lines can't be traced back generations. Pedigrees (of which Ragdoll is one of the breeds) can trace back the ancestry of a single cat for lots and lots of generations, the cats are breed to conform to a 'breed standard' which some are then shown for and compete to see who can be the best of that breed.

    Lol good answer!!

    Basically Ragdoll's look how a Ragdoll is supposed to look same as a Bengal will look how a Bengal is supposed to look.

    Moggies are more of a pic a mix and you can have millions of different patterns and colours.

    AS explained in other replies Ragdolls are pedigree cats where moggies can be a mix of anything , this doesnt make thenm any less of a cat though, One thing i would like to add regarding Raggamuffins, a lot of people think a raggamuffin is a cross between a ragdoll and a moggie, this is not so, a raggamuffin is a breed in its own right, although not fully recognised yet by the GCCF but this breed will be at some shows this year on exhibition by those who currently own cats of this breed..i hope this helps .................CHRIS.
