To the left is a mink ragdoll kitten born and rasied in my home. His coat is one of the most plush in a kitten that I have seen. He is a sweet boy with very expressive eyes. He should be available to be adopted in the next 2 weeks to his forever home.
Are minks better than traditional?
I love the traditional colors and patterns. Flames and torties are not on my list of favorites though. Seal and blues in bicolor, mitted, and colorpoint. I do adore lynx and my Maxwell is a blue mitted lynx. It is rare for me to produce a colorpoint so they are high on my list of favorites.
I think of each kitten as an individual as they do have their own personality. Socialization and environment plays into it as well. The goal at Megailee ragdolls is to strive for health and well adjusted happy kittens. When they leave here they are happy and how they acclimate in their new home with new parents and pets is up to the new parent. I have had kittens get used to a resident cat within a day but I have heard stories of others that can take weeks. As usual the kitten/cat calls the shots.
Mink ragdolls really are a color/pattern option for those who want this. The point contrast is less than in the traditional and the eye color is more of a blue/green color. The coat is thick and plush (at least from what I have produced). Within the breed there is a variance as to texture and length.
The blue bicolor mink kitten is cute and expressive and fun to watch. His sister looks almost identical to him but is shy. Next week they move to the main part of the house so that they get used to all household sounds and hopefully snuggle up with me to watch tv at night.
I love them all and am very fortunate to have them in my life.
