Ragdoll cats are pretty healthy cats but the Ragdoll cat is prone to some health problems that are genetic from other Ragdoll cats such as their mother or father.

Some health conditions that a Ragdoll Cat are prone to unlike some other cats are bladder stones and a heart condition known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Any cat or other animals can get those health problems as well and it's rare that a Ragdoll cat or other cat will get those health issues.

But it's possible so I would recommend taking your Ragdoll cat to the vet as often as possible for a vet checkup to keep the cat healthy and catch any potential health problems as soon as possible.

Usually though your Ragdoll cat will live a very long and healthy life.

My Grandma had a very cute Ragdoll cat that lived for 20 years and never had any health issues.
