BREED PROFILE:
Scottish Fold

Scottish Fold
The Scottish Fold cat occurred as a spontaneous mutation in farm cats in Scotland. The breed has been established by crosses to British Shorthair and domestic cats in Scotland and England. In America, the outcross is the American and British Shorthair. All bona fide Scottish Fold cats trace their pedigree to Susie, the first fold-ear cat discovered by the founders of the breed, William and Mary Ross.

Scottish Folds come in two types: folded ear and straight (normal) ear. Scottish Fold kittens are born with straight ears. At about three to four weeks of age, their ears fold...or they don't! They also come in two coat lengths: longhair and shorthair.

More about the Scottish Fold ...

COAT LENGTH: Longhair and Shorthair (shown)
CHARACTERISTICS: Ears folded forward and down; large round eyes; also available with straight ears; many colors and patterns are bred
PERSONALITY: Affectionate and laid back; sweet expressions

Scottish Folds are hardy cats, much like their barnyard ancestors. Their disposition matches their sweet expression. They have tiny voices and are not extremely vocal. They adore human companionship and display this in their own quiet way. Scottish Folds adapt to almost any home situation and are as comfortable in a room full of noisy children and dogs as they are in a single person's dwelling. They don't usually panic at shows or in strange hotel rooms, and they adjust to other animals extremely well.
