Do Ragdolls come in solid colours? Yes they do, when the breed started the parents were solid but kittens were both solid & pointed.  There are less than a handful GENUINE solid breeders in the UK, if you see a solid ragdoll forsale with no papers then it is a scam/moggie, as the breeders who breed them are registered breeders who have imported cats from abroad. They still have to have ragdoll type & personality but in different colours, they aren't for everyone who loves the standard blue eye ragdoll look! But some are lovely, please take a look at the links here for more information, and remember no papers = moggie!

British Shorthairs have dense, plush coats that are often described as crisp or cracking, referring to the way the coat breaks over the contours of the cat's body. Eyes are large, round and widely set and can be a variety of colours, though the copper or gold eyes of the British blue are the best known. Their heads are round with full, chubby cheeks. Their bodies are large, sturdy, and muscular and are described as having a "cobby" build.

The British shorthair solid blue colour is the most popular and known by everyone, however alot of people dont know that they come in a Beautiful rainbow of colours, as pictured below, these are ALL Pedigree British shorthair Cats!
