I have 2 persian and 2 ragdolls, I love both breeds. :heart:

Persians take a lot more work to look after, daily grooming, baths, eye washing, mine are always having poop accidents...I totally love them though and their characters are amazing. :heart:

Ragdolls are very beautiful, intelligent, independent kittes and my two are amazing. Cherie, there is actually such a thing as the ragdoll flop and both mine do it, it is so cute. There coats are beautiful and fuzzy but don't matt, they only need brushed once a month and no baths.

If it was my 10 year old I would be getting a ragdoll, they take a lot less looking after and are just as beautiful. :heart:

We have both a persian and A ragdoll.
Oscar is a Ragdoll crossed with a Himalayan. I love him. He did not get the docile-ness from either breeds he's a big monster. Ragdolls require slightly different care, I should have waited to neuter Oscar but I didn't so he's smaller then he could have been (I had him done as soon as he hit like 5 pounds as a kitten). I still get mats in Oscar's fur and still have to brush him. He goes limp. He also weighs 12.5 pounds. I also still have to bath him. I love him but he's definitely not as snuggly or docile as I would have liked.

Then Miss. BB.
Who I love but choose my sister as her person (she really is a one person cat)
Her coat requires daily care and a certain type of brush. She gets special biscuits because of her severe underbite. She is very VERY docile, vocal and sweet but very one person and very calm.

I love both breeds. I don't think I could choose.

Jess, Mr super handsome Oscar probably get matts because he is a persian/ raggie mix?

My Vampire Floyd is a blue bi colour raggie, he has bunny soft fur and actually has the longest butt fur of all my cats, he keeps himself immaculate, He never matts.

Muki is my seal point raggie and she actually has quite a big wooly coat for a raggie. She maybe gets a tiny Matt every three months or so which is easy to remove.

Ragdolls do not have an undercoat like a persian. I don't have to brush my raggies very often.

The reason I say to choose a raggie is that they take a lot less care. You need to feed them / love them and change the litter. A ten year old kid might get sick of all the care a persian needs, especially if you get one with a big coat, it can take a lot of work to keep it in shape. It takes me the best part of a day to bath mine weekly.

I LOVE my persians, they are amazing wee creatures and are my babies. I am just thinking of me at ten years old, I probably would have left my mum to do all the hard tasks :lol:

Good luck with your decision, they are both amazing breeds.

Tis is my ragdoll Muki.

He tends to get matts in his under arms, and his coat isn't much longer then Muki's!
And he does the Raggie flop. BIG TIME. HE IS A BIG BOY. Raggie's GET HUGE!
When you pick him he's just like a big dead weight, I think it's kind of funny when others try and pick him up and near about drop him because he's just so limpy.
