GCCF REGISTRATION POLICY FOR RAGDOLL CATS
Agreed/effective February 2009
PERMITTED OUTCROSS BREEDS
Note: No outcrossing acceptable after 23 October 2004.
N.B. It is recommended that any Persian to be used as an outcross should be certified free of PKD under the
FAB/PKD Screening Scheme.
1. FULL REGISTER
Ragdolls with Championship or Provisional status which have only Ragdolls who have been registered on the Full or Supplementary Register in their pedigrees within the preceding five generations shall be placed on the Full Register.
2. SUPPLEMENTARY REGISTER
Ragdolls with Championship or Provisional status which have only Ragdolls in their pedigrees within the preceding five generations shall be placed on the Supplementary Register.
3. EXPERIMENTAL REGISTER
Ragdolls with Preliminary status which have only Ragdolls in their pedigrees within the preceding five generations, shall be placed on the Experimental Register.
4. REFERENCE REGISTER
Imported Ragdolls with a certified pedigree showing five generations of Ragdoll breeding shall be registered as
the first generation on the Supplementary or Experimental Register.
Any cats of Ragdoll appearance bred from any mating other than Ragdoll x Ragdoll, or Ragdoll x one of the
permitted outcross breeds as defined in 4a, 4b or 4c above, must be overstamped, ‘must not be used for Ragdoll
breeding’. No progeny will be recognised as Ragdolls.
Should any further colours of Ragdoll be developed as a breed, the appropriate cats may be registered as
Ragdolls on the Experimental or Reference Register as appropriate, at the request of the Ragdoll Breed Advisory
Committee. Those cats already registered on the Reference Register, but which qualify to be registered on the
Experimental Register, shall then be treated as if they were registered on the Experimental Register.
