The Scottish Fold is a very special breed of cat. They are good temperament cats, generally sweet, bright and quiet with an easy-going nature. Over the last two decades the Scottish Fold has developed a look all its own…even though allowed outcrosses include American Shorthairs and British Shorthairs. The unique thing about this cat was that her ears folded forward and downward on her head. The Fold does not necessarily resemble the American Shorthair’s hard, powerful “working cat” body and squared-off muzzle. Nor does it look like the British Shorthair’s massive, compact body, short legs, and flat planed top-head. The Fold, instead, is a medium cat with a rounded, well-padded body and a short, dense, and resilient coat. It has large, round, broadly spaced eyes full of sweetness; well-rounded whisker pads and a short nose with a gentle curve in profile. Scottish Folds come in all colors and patterns as well as long hair and short hair varieties. All eye colors can be found, but copper eyes are the most common color.
Scottish Folds are smart, curious and are loyal. They tend not to hide in the house or be shy, but they will always be around, follow you from room to room. Most like to drink running water and some eats and drinks with their paws. This breed gets along with children and, once properly introduced, other family pets too.Scottish Folds come in two types: folded ear and straight (normal) ear. The folded ear is produced by an incomplete dominant gene and is the result of a spontaneous mutation. Scottish Fold are not born with folded ears. The ears folding usually about the 21st day.The Scottish Fold is an undemanding cat. A clean environment, proper nutrition, and generous doses of love are its only requirements.
