Still a young looking Seal Mitted Ragdoll boy of 11 months, needing more time to develop Ragdoll type.  The heat had obviously affected his coat!  A smallish broad head with flat plane, ears tilting forward; round cheeks to muzzle, a good chin. His bite is misaligned which was confirmed by the Duty Vet.  His obliquely set eyes are blue, he has a long light body, standing tall on his legs with firm tufted paws.  His balanced tail is quite sparse, his coat was obviously moulting, especially short around his neck and difficult to see his knickerbockers.  His body colour was beige, his points of a light seal brown were quite brindled, his chin, bib and chest are white, with evenly white mittens on his front legs,back legs are white to the hock.  This lad needs to find his coat again.  My reason for withholding the CC was due to his bite.  A gentle lad who was finding the heat a bit much!

AV SLH BREEDERS ADULT

MALE

1  GLEDSTONE’S ADTELO JOSEPH (66) M 13.08.2008  Medium sized forward tilted ears separated by a flat plane, excellent blue eyes, gentle dip in the profile, level bite and rounded muzzle. Well grown body with good muscle tone carried on medium length legs and balance by a well feathered tail. Excellent coat texture and length just a touch of temperature banding spoiling the body colour – but this should go as the coat changes. Clear tummy and dense seal points.

He also went on to get two 1st’s and a 3rd in his side classes. We are so thrilled with his progress and at such a young age. Fingers crossed for his 3rd CC now.

AC COLOURPOINTED OR MITTED RAGDOLL (inc Red & Tabby) KITTEN MALE1st & BOB Gledstone’s ADATELO JOSEPH 13.8.2008
Seal Colourpointed. He was a little bit nervous, but had the best contrasts that I have ever seen in a Ragdoll, particularly a kitten. Broad head with flat plane between medium ears, little tilt forward, good feathers. Medium length snub nose, gentle dip. Full bite, cheeks and muzzle developing well, firm chin. Large round eyes in slight oblique set, very good deep blue. Excellent body for length and substantial bone, he is definitely plump, and long bushy tail, tapering to tip just a little paler than the points colour. Dense silky coat, fairly short as yet, but very pale beige shading to lighter altogether down the sides and under belly. Warm deep seal points and matching diamond shape mask. Good grooming. He was just a little nervous, but a very promising little man.

Seal Colourpointed, lovely little chap still to get all the minor baby problems resolved, not intended as criticism as this developmental. Good breadth to his head, promising muzzle strength, still slightly rounded on the brow, gentle dip to the nose with its slight retrousse tip, good chin & bite. Ears medium size, set well & have a hint of forward tilt. Eyes possessing gentle oblique setting but still a little baby small, however the colour was super having not only depth but brightness to. Body still rather on the small side in relation to his age, whilst the proportions are all in keeping, with good legs & paws, balanced length tail still to achieve a bushier appearance. Still with the soft fluffy baby coat, with all its wispy fringes at the edges, very soft. Clear body colour with as a result good contrast to the points but these still to deepen & densen more, showing incomplete mask & brindled base to the ears, legs still slightly pale but with a reasonable degree of warmth. His condition was excellent & he was such an amicable little fella, but emphasis on little as yet.
