  Question for Ragdoll owners/breeders - Is my cat happy?
We recently bought a 7mnth old Ragdoll cat, she seems content/happy with us almost all of the time - she purrs regularly when we stroke her, she happily cuddles up with us on sofa/in bed. Her health is fine, she was recently spayed (about 2-3 weeks ago) - her coat is lovely and eats/drinks well.

The problem is that whenever she meows it sounds like she is sad - it is a quiet, almost 'whiney' meow.

We are out at work usually 5 days per week - we leave her toys and a radio on and she has a perfect view of birds in the garden, etc. I know leaving a Ragdoll home alone isn't ideal, we got her because "breeder" was awful and we'd rather spend the money if only to save her and rehome her IF nessessary.

The funny thing though is that she makes the same meow even when we are home with her all weekend. She gets constant attention WHENEVER we're in the house.

We love her to bits and just want her happy - we are both new to owning Ragdolls and do not know if this meow is normal/common.
Also worth noting is that she isn't exceptionally active - she not really interested in many toys - she much happier to curl up with us. I believe though that this is part of the Ragdoll temperment

We bought her about 4 weeks ago.

some cats are active, some are not, some have loud voices, some dont. i know a cat that is wild as hell and he has the most depressing meow ive ever heard, i also know a cat that just sits around all the time and never plays, but when she's hungry, boy, you know it! haha, i think your cat is perhaps fine, many cats are just not active, or playful, but it doesnt mean anything is wrong, although, i would have to see her to really know. if she is skittish, or flattens her ears around you or strangers, she is perhaps scared, watch her tail too, when cats are content and happy, they blink their eyes very slowly, sometimes close them and their tail flicks occasionally, when they are upset, their tail will thump the ground with more force and they will possibly wiggle a lot. just watch her body language and try to see if she is unhappy or not, but it sounds like she is just a quiet cat, dont worry too much ^-^

If your worried about her being lonely or not happy, get her a friend, ie another Ragdoll.
