GENERAL: the overall impression of the RagaMuffin should be one of sweetness and robust health. They are a medium to large cat with substantial bone structures and full bodies. The large, expres- sive eyes strongly contribute to the overall sweet look. The only extremes in this cat are the large expressive eyes and docile nature. RagaMuffin females are generally considerably smaller than males, both being muscular, and heavy with a tendency toward a fatty pad on the lower abdomen. RagaMuffins attain full maturity at approximately four years of age. The cat should have an overall balance, with quality and conformation given preference oversize. A RagaMuffin is people loving and affectionate – a cuddly, feline teddy bear.


HEAD: the head is a broad modified wedge with a pleasingly rounded appearance, with no obvious flat planes. The forehead and tophead should be moderately rounded. Muzzle is short and rounded, tending to broadness. The chin is firmly rounded, reflect- ing a proper bite. There is puffiness to the whisker pad, which results in the characteristic “sweet look” of the RagaMuffin. Cheeks are full. In profile, there is an obvious nose dip, giving the impres- sion of a scoop rather than a break. Neck is short, heavy and strong, particularly in older males. An allowance is made for jowli- ness in mature adult males.


EARS: medium in size, set as much on the side of the head as on the top of the head with slight flaring, tilted slightly forward. Ears are rounded with moderate furnishings, in pleasing proportion to the head.


EYES: large, walnut shaped and expressive, moderately wide set, the eyes contribute to the characteristic sweet look. A slight oriental slant to the eye is acceptable. The more intense the eye color, the better. All eye colors are allowed, including odd-eyed. Exception: mink colors must be aqua and sepia colors must be yellow/gold to green.

BODY: rectangular, broad chest and broad shoulders, and moder- ately heavy muscling in the hindquarters with the hindquarters being equally as broad as the shoulders. There should be a fatty pad in the lower abdomen. These cats are fully fleshed and upon palpation should feel well covered with flesh. The cat should have an overall balance in body size, shape and distribution of weight, with quality and conformation given preference over size.


TAIL: long, in proportion to the body. It is fully furred, similar in look to a plume or soft bottlebrush, medium at the base with a slight taper.


LEGS AND PAWS: legs should be heavily boned, medium in length with the back legs slightly longer than the front legs, yet in propor- tion to the body. The paws should be large and round, able to support the weight of the cat without splaying, and with tufts beneath and between the paws. Allowance is made for finer boning in female

 

COAT: the fur is to be medium to medium-long. Texture is to be soft, dense and silky. Texture will vary slightly with color. Fur length is to be slightly longer around neck and outer edges of face, result- ing in the appearance of a ruff, and increasing in length from top of head down through shoulder blades and back, with the coat on the sides and stomach being medium to medium-long. The fur on the front legs is thick and short to medium in length. The fur on the hind legs is medium to medium-long and thick with the appearance of a wispy frill on the hindquarters.


COLOR: every color and pattern is allowable with or without white, except pointed colors. Any amount of white is allowed, e.g. white spots on paws, back, chest or belly; a blaze, a locket, etc. The degree of symmetry whether in the pattern or the white spotting is of no importance. Nose leather and paw pads are accepted in all col- ors and in any color combination, not necessarily related to coat color, listed colors are preferred, not required. Cats with white on feet may have pink paw    pads or they may be bi-colored or multi-col- ored.


ALLOWANCES: shorter fur on the legs for cats with medium length coat. Seasonal changes in coat length and texture. Smaller size in females and cats under four years of age. Short ruff on whole cats.


PREFERENCES: affectionate nature, and deep, bright eye color.


PENALIZE: extreme cranial doming, nose break, Roman nose, small ears, pointed ears. Cobby body, short tail, cottony undercoat.


DISQUALIFY: poor health or condition, crossed eyes, tail fault, poly- dactyl or pointed colors. Short hair on the body and/or tail, giving the impression of a short-haired cat.
