Romeo is a Ragdoll. Many people have never heard of that breed, and yet, it isn’t all that new. It’s been around since the latter part of the 1980s, I believe.
How did the Ragdolls get their breed name? Well, the story goes like this: It seems that a woman came across a cat that was very handsome, like Romeo, and when she picked it up, it hung limp – like a child’s ragdoll would. A very simple story. Since then, there’s been some cross-breeding (most popular with Siamese and Birmans) to define the breed.
