In most associations, Ragdolls are accepted in 3 patterns and 4 colors.
The three patterns are "colorpoint,"
"mitted," and "bicolor".
- A "colorpoint" has dark points (ears, tail, face, and feet) with a body of a lighter shade. The nose leather and pawpads match the point color. Colorpoints do not have white markings (although the pale body color may appear white on some cats).
- A "mitted" has dark points and lighter body like a colorpoint, but also has white "mitts" on the front paws, white "boots" on the back legs and feet, a white chin, a white strip on the stomach, and a white ruff.
- A "bi-color" has the dark points (ears and tail), but the mask is interrupted by an inverted "V" running between the eyes and expanding into the muzzle. The body color forms a "saddle" on the cat's back and the remainder of the cat is white. Bi-colors have pink nose leather and paw pads.
The four colors are "seal," "chocolate," "blue," and
"lilac" (also known as "frost")
SEAL has dark seal brown points with a light tan body
CHOCOLATE has milk chocolate points with an ivory
BLUE has dark gray points with a pale gray body color.
LILAC has pinkish gray points with a frosty white body
