What pattern am I?

 

 

Ragdolls come in three main patterns: point, mitted and bicolour.  Of course there are mismarkings and variations within the patterns but for the sake of simplicity, let's stick to these.  Below is a description of each one and if you click the slideshow pictures, you can see examples of them to help you become acquainted with them.

 

Point - In this pattern, all the points (ears, tail, face mask and feet) are the same colour.  This is the classic and original pattern.

 

Mitted -  As with the point pattern, ears, tail and face mask are the same colour.. however.. the feet are white.  Front feet have little white mittens, whilst the back feet have long white socks.  The mitted patterned cats can also have a white blaze of varying sizes and shapes.

 

Bicolour - Sometimes bicolours and mitteds could look similar, however, the classic bicolour has an inverted V of white which stretches up the centre of their face and down their chest.  The white mitts are now long socks and come to the shoulder on all four legs.  The V on the face can be of varying widths but always the nose is pink.
