NY Divine Dolls - (631) 848-4526


TICA has been eagerly accepting money for the registration of non-pointed Ragdolls as Ragdolls since 1982. TICA was founded on June 22, 1979.  After all these years, based upon this fact, and that of genetic and Ragdoll historical facts, TICA should not be putting this up for members to vote in regard to acceptance of the Solids, Minks, and Sepias, but should actually automatically grant them recognition and permit eligibility for Championship! This would double, and perhaps, even triple the number of Ragdolls at each club's show. This would ESPECIALLY be the case if current Ragdoll exhibitors, of the pointed variety, make the effort to demonstrate good sportmanship and strive to welcome, educate, and encourage new exhibitors to produce show quality Ragdolls that adhere to the standard, instead of maliciously turning them out of the show hall to create an epidemic of Ragdoll pets and labeling them "backyard breeders"! True Ragdolls do NOT just have blue eyes!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The only difference between the Ragdoll and the Solid, Mink, and Sepia Ragdolls  is caused by the C-locus (which is responsible for the self-color, pointed, and Sepia gene) . All of the other characteristics are the same.
