I adopted a rescue what I thought was a Ragdoll 2 years ago. Though she looks like a Ragdoll and has the blue eyes and wonderful fur coat, she is only a little under 8 lbs.at 3 yrs. old. Recently, saw pictures of the Birman and the facial pictures looked just like her. She is a blue point, however does not have white paws but the blue points on her face, legs and tail. Could she still be a Birman without the white paws?
She is a lovey doll and don't really care her pedigree, but am just curious due to the pictures I have seen of the Birman.
Would appreciate any insights. Thanks.

All Birmans have white paws. Without seeing her, I can not say she is a Ragdoll.

Can someone tell me what is the difference between Birmans and Ragdolls?

Birman do a Birman Huff. They are smaller than Ragdolls. Some say Ragdolls go limp.
