The Ragamuffin is an intelligent, loving and affectionate breed that loves being around people. They make an ideal pet for families with children and are suitable for small house and apartment lifestyle. Although not athletic or energetic like other breeds, the Ragamuffin do enjoy playing and climbing scratching posts. They tend to retain their kitten-like playfulness for a number of years, delaying their maturity.
Being a gentle natured cat, the Ragamuffin should be kept indoors only. They don’t possess the defence instincts of most other cats.
