Upon reflection, it occurred to me that my neighbor's new cat might be a Ragdoll, because it goes limp when picked up and just sort of drapes over you. I did a Google image search, and there she was!

Am I correct in recalling that Ragdolls have soft, thick fur, large frames, gentle dispositions, and "Siamese-type" coloring? I do remember that they are bred for that "going limp" characteristic.

Other cats may "go limp" when picked up too, like some Birmans do. Birmans have similar coloring as well, so that's another possibility. Does the cat have four white mittens?

No, her feet are dark, dark brown fading to splotches that look like "Cookies and Cream" ice cream, as is her face. I looked at Birmans but they all had longer hair. This cat's hair is super soft and fuzzy, very very thick, but not long. I mean, not sleek like a DSH but not long. And she has a big, rounded head and round very blue, very crossed eyes. I think when she fills out her normal weight might be in the 12-13 pound range when SLIM. She is a big-boned baby, and so laid back.

Oh god, no, the cruel *** who dumped the cat had her declawed. -( And, we live on a busy street.

Your adult ragdolls all look like this cat would if it had some TLC and filled out some. Their fur is unique, isn't it? Very thick and fuzzy but not very long? I think perhaps the neighbor's cat is a mix because of her spatter "cookies and cream" markings and her very round head and high forehead. Thank you.

If you decide it is a Ragdoll, you might want to mention to your neighbour that Ragdolls can be prone to heart disease. There's info about HCM generally and a link about its relevance to Ragdolls specifically here:

But tell her not to panic, my cat (Persian) has had HCM for over four years and is fine
