Ragdoll vs Birman

By Lucas James

The main difference between a Ragdoll cat and a Birman Cat is size, personality, and coat features. Ragdolls are larger, with a muscular, semi-longhaired coat, blue eyes, and an affectionate, dog-like personality. Birmans have medium size, soft, silky fur without a thick undercoat, and almost round blue eyes, and they're generally friendly but less likely to follow owners around. Also, unlike Ragdolls, Birmans have white "gloves" on their paws.
