Body: chin, chest, and underside are white. Upper body may show white spotting. Legs and feet: all white preferred. May have minor dark spots. Paw pads: pink preferred, but mixture of colors on paw pads and fur acceptable because of two colors in pattern. (When determining color, point color of ears is the deciding factor.)

Ragdoll Cat Colors

Points: (except for white overlay) mask, ears, legs, feet, tail dense and clearly defined. All of the same shade. Mask covers entire face including whisker pads, and is connected to ears by tracings. Mask should not extend over the top of the head. No ticking in points. Stomach pad may have darker shading.
