A Mink Ragdoll Cat is one of two types of ragdoll cats you can get
Ragdolls come in traditional or mink coats. Traditional ragdolls have blue eyes and darker points on the face, tail and legs. Mink ragdolls come from the original breeder Ann Baker, and have a thicker, darker and more luxurious coat. Their coat color is much darker than traditional ragdolls.
There are some traditional breeders that disagree that mink ragdolls are ‘true’ ragdolls. This isn’t the case however, the TICA (The International Cat Association) lists both mink and traditional ragdolls as being pure ragdoll cats.
Meet our Blue Bicolor Mink Ragdoll cat
Her coat often photographs more beige than the blue. In fact, when she was a kitten and I was choosing her from the breeder I almost didn’t’ believe that she was a blue bicolor.

Now that she is 13 weeks old, you can see the grey in her blue bicolor mink coat
Mink ragdolls don’t always have blue eyes the same way that traditional ragdolls do. Our mink has green eyes, although a combination of blue, green or aqua is common.
Because we own a blue traditional ragdoll and a blue mink ragdoll, I’m really looking forward to seeing the color transition over time. Our kittens are only 13 weeks old right now, I will update with more photos as time goes on!
