Traditional vs Mink

Minks and traditional are both pure ragdolls, both are registrable with TICA.  In the picture on this page, all three kittens are seal, 2 are seal traditional and 1 is a seal mink.  The fur of a mink kitten is softer and smoother than that of a traditional.  Traditional ragdolls are born solid white and their pointed color starts to appear on their ears when they are 2-3 days old.  Mink ragdolls are born a warmer color and also start to receive their pointed color when they are 2-3 days old.  Both traditional and mink kittens are born with blue eyes.  The eyes on the mink kitten will change to a beautiful aqua color as they age, while the eyes of a traditional ragdoll will remain a stunning blue. When we breed our traditional queens to our mink king, we get both traditional and mink kittens.  Sometimes we get one in a litter and sometimes we get more than half mink. We never know until they are born. Our minks come in seal or blue. Minks also come in all the standard patterns: color point (no white), mitted (white mitts on front paws, boots on back legs, white chin and bib), bi-color (inverted "V" on face white on all legs, chin and bib) and lynx (tabby like marking). Most minks have a all over color appearance to them. As far as temperament there is no difference they are all ragdoll.
