Scottish Fold

As the breed name suggests, the Scottish Fold is distinguished from other cat breeds by its small, folded ears, which give it the appearance of a very cute animal. Scottish Folds are often compared to owls – the small ears and large round eyes do indeed give the appearance of an owl. The cats in this breed are quite calm, affectionate and friendly. Although appearances are sometimes deceptive, this is not the case with this breed of cat – they seem to be the epitome of kindness &ndash, and indeed they are. Of course, there is a cat prank in their everyday life, but when you look at their cute little snout, you soon forget about it.

History of the Scottish Fold

This is a relatively new breed of cat, which has only recently become popular. It was started in 1961 by a shepherd from the Scottish region who was fascinated by the kittens Susie brought in, which had ears that had fallen off. Interestingly, when breeding Scottish Eared cats, one of the parents must be a Scottish Eared cat – only in this case can you expect to breed kittens with Eared ears. All kittens have erect ears as soon as they are born and only in the third or fourth week of life do the ears droop or remain erect. Cat breeders cannot predict how many kittens in a litter will have erect ears and how many will have drooping ears. Scottish drooping ears are highly prized because not every litter has such cats. Whether the kittens will be able to participate in shows can be judged approximately 12 weeks after the litter is born.

Scottish Fold: appearance

The head of the Scottish Loppet is round and broad, the chin is short. The nose of these cats is straight, short and broad, with a slight curve to the high forehead. The ears are small, curved and inclined forwards, with the tips rounded and directed towards the centre of the forehead. The eyes may be green or bluish-green, and are large and round, giving the Scottish Elkhound an owlish look.The eyes are spaced far apart, and it is important that their colour matches the colour of the coat. Scottish Pointers are medium-length cats with soft and fluffy coats and a wide range of coat colours: white, blue, red, cream, black. The nose and underparts of this breed should be the same colour as the main coat colour.

Scottish Fold: character

Although Scottish Pointing Dogs are quite agile, they only play when they catch their breath. This breed is perfect for calm people, as a Scottie will never be pushy and will not encourage you to play with it if the owner is not in the mood for it. Scottish Loppers do speak a little, but in a half-voice – there is no need to worry about the cat making a lot of noise. Scottish Loppers show no aggression at all – in fact, these cats have no idea that claws and teeth can be used in defence. Well, maybe in the event of a serious threat their predatory nature would be revealed, but there should be no fights in the home. Scottish Pointers will get on well with all members of the family, but the privacy of the cat should be respected and it should not be taken by force. If the cat does not like people’s behaviour, it will not be tempted to argue about who is superior, but will simply turn around and walk away. Scottish Foxes adapt quickly to changes in living conditions, so moving to a new place or going to a farmhouse will not seem like the end of the world to them. Interestingly, Scottish Foxes are not afraid of water at all, so if necessary, the cat can be fed and bathed.
