can ragdoll cat go outside
Ragdoll cats can go outside after 7 day of being in the new home. It is recommended that installing a cat flap would be ideal in order for the cat to go in and out of your home. I would not recommend letting a ragdoll outside if you live by motorway as a chance of being run over. Secondly, the noisy road would scare ragdolls as they are sensitive to noise and not active in running for their life. Thirdly, motorway homeowners should be careful of thief and cat missing issues as it is typical in this kind of area. With the quick act and the busy background, the ragdoll cat could be taken away without giving a sound. Ragdoll is very trustworthy and easygoing therefore it will not be a problem for meeting new people or strangers. In fact, ragdoll is very friendly and loves to be touched and taken care of by whoever that person is. Therefore, take a great deal of attention to your ragdoll cat until you guys become close. By doing that, you prevent a chance of your ragdoll being taken away by strangers. It is because ragdoll is very smart to recognise and identify closeness by its all senses. Thus, when a ragdoll develops a relationship with you- its new owner/ friend, it will be more concerned when strangers approach it with bad purposes. All in all, letting a ragdoll cat go outside is a choice not only on beautiful days but also on rainy days depending on the mood of that day. Therefore, keeping your ragdoll cat prepared for a- z steps to spending time outside with the sun would be ideal before actually letting it go on its own. It is advised that going with your ragdoll in your hand going to the garden/ outside for a few times till you feel it is the right point to let your ragdoll cat go alone.

In those rare cases, I would advise you to be patient, and a little talk and sharing your understanding with your ragdoll cat would be a step to prevent this from ever happening again. If this unusual situation has not been changed or it keeps repeating itself for some reasons, buying a scratch post would be a wise temporary solution for you to stop the cat from destroying the furniture until the ragdoll cat is still again.
