The Patterns Of The Chocolate Point Ragdoll Cat
Chocolate Lynx Point Ragdoll Cat
The body color of the chocolate lynx point is ivory in color, and the shading will usually take the form of cream mottling.
They’re very recognizable because of their tabby markings. Their points are distinctive and look like warm milk chocolate, separated by the lighter background color.
Cats with this specific pattern have a cinnamon coloured nose and paw pads. However, a nose in a pinkish cinnamon color is more sought-after.
Chocolate Bicolor Ragdoll Cat
Chocolate bicolor ragdolls are recognizable for the inverted V marking on their face. From the chin and all across the belly, their fur is snowy white, while the top is cream in color. Around their big blue eyes, you will notice a dark brown color, and this is also found on the ears.
The paw pads and nose are usually pink in color.
Chocolate Colorpoint Ragdoll Cat
A chocolate colorpoint ragdoll cat has specific markings that are similar to those of a Siamese cat. The body is of an ivory cream color. Other parts, such as the nose, ears, paws, tail, and face are a warm, chocolate brown.
Finally, the nose and paw pads may be pink or cinnamon but it is usually preferable that they’re the same color as the dark points.
Chocolate Mitted Ragdoll Cat
A Chocolate Mitted Ragdoll Cat is almost the same as a chocolate colorpoint ragdoll. The difference is that chocolate mitted ragdolls have white mitts on their paws and chin. The mittens on the back paw can go right around their hocks, and their front paws may have mittens right up to the wrist.
From their chin, there is a white stripe across their belly. Interestingly, they sometimes have white marks on their face in pretty shapes such as a star, hourglass, or blaze.
The Chocolate Tortie Point Ragdoll Cat
The body of the chocolate tortie point is ivory in color. In older cats, the fur may seem mottled.
The points are a warm milk chocolate color, and warm tones may appear with traces of red or cream.
The paw pads and the nose leather are cinnamon in color, and a flesh tone or coral pink color are usually preferable.
Chocolate Tortie-Lynx Point
This color pattern is a body that is ivory in color, and light brown mottled markings that may have cream and red tones. The point of a chocolate tortie is chocolate brown which can be separated by the light color.
The nose of the chocolate tortie is usually cinnamon in color. However, the proper color for the nose is edged with cinnamon pink. Sometimes, coral pink may be present.

Are Chocolate Point Ragdolls Rare?
Yes, chocolate, mink, and lilac colors of the ragdoll breed are rare, unlike, for example, seal and blue ragdolls. As they are rare, it’s more likely that you’ll have difficulties finding a good breeder with his own cattery where you can get a chocolate ragdoll kitten.
In addition, remember that they’re more expensive than other cat breeds. So, if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a cat then this might not be the breed for you!
How Much Is A Chocolate Point Ragdoll?
A chocolate point ragdoll kitten may cost anywhere between $500 to $2500. The reason for the high price is that they’re rare and often very hard to find.
What Is The Difference Between A Chocolate Point And Seal Point Ragdoll?
The main difference between these two colors is their shade. A seal point has dark brown points which are much darker than the chocolate point ragdoll, which has much warmer and lighter shades of brown, in a milk-chocolate color.
A seal point is more similar to a Siamese cat due to its dark points.
Do All Chocolate Ragdolls Have Blue Eyes?
Yes, all purebred ragdolls have blue eyes. This is one of their main characteristics. Mixed breed ragdolls may have dark blue or even green eyes.
Are Chocolate Ragdoll Kittens Born Brown?
The answer is NO. Every Ragdoll kitten, not just the chocolate variety, is born completely white. They start to develop their color after the first couple of weeks.
Can Chocolate Ragdolls Change Color?
Yes, they can change color because their pigment production is influenced by their body temperature.
If their body temperature is low, pigment production decreases, but if their body temperature is high, then pigment production increases.
Do Chocolate Ragdolls Get Darker Coats When They’re Older?
Yes, their coats do get darker with their age. However, this also has to do with the cat’s temperature. How is this possible?
Younger cats have a faster metabolism and a higher temperature. This decreases pigment production and that’s why younger cats have lighter coats.
On the other hand, older cats have a slower metabolism and a lower body temperature which causes pigment production to increase, so their coats get darker, especially in the places where body temperature is lowest.
Do Overweight Chocolate Ragdolls Have Darker Coats?
Yes, they do. It may sound funny, but it’s true – body weight can influence the color of the coat.
Overweight cats have large quantities of a particular type of tissue under the skin. This causes a lower temperature in this area.
This fatty tissue blocks body heat from reaching the skin and with a lower temperature, the fur becomes darker.
This is not permanent. When a cat loses weight, the fatty tissue disappears and temperature increases again, making the cat’s fur lighter again.
Ragdoll cats are one of the best pets because of their gentle temperament, and this wonderful variety of different colors makes them one of the most beautiful cat breeds.
There are many different colors for the ragdoll breed, and there are also various patterns. So, each different color of ragdoll cat can also have different patterns, for example, chocolate lynx, blue mitted, seal bicolor, etc.
