Seal Point Ragdolls


Seal point Ragdoll cats have a splash of chocolate-colored fur on their faces, ears, paws, and tails.


Ragdoll beauty is well-known, but there’s one especially iconic look. Seal point Ragdolls, with their pale bodies and dark “points,” are the most popular Raggies. The “points” refer to brown patches on the cats’ ears, paws, and tails. They also have brown patches on their faces — that’s where the ‘seal’ part of their name comes from. 

Seal point Ragdolls look like Siamese cats, but their behavior is very different. Seal points are sweet, shaggy balls of docile energy. They tend to show love quietly, while Siamese cats are usually very vocal and mischievous. 

Let’s look at some names inspired by Seal Point Ragdolls:

  1. Brownie 
  2. Chocolate 
  3. Genteel
  4. Gallant
  5. Seal 
  6. Worthy
  7. Royal
  8. Brown
  9. Cocoa
  10. Frontier
  11. Fancy
  12. Prince 
  13. Princess 
  14. Mixie 
  15. Classy
  16. Cocoa 
  17. Brown Ears 
  18. Coco Drop 
  19. Marble
  20. Tan 

Cream Ragdolls

Ragdolls also come in luxurious, creamy colors. A cream-colored Ragdoll will still have “points,” but they’ll be a darker shade of cream rather than brown. These cats may even look like they’re all one color.

If you love your cats’ pale fur, you might like these names:
