SCOTTISH FOLDS AND BRITISH SHORTHAIRS

Scottish Folds can trace their ancestry to Susie, the first cat discovered in 1961 at Coupar Angus, a Scottish farm.
Susie's distinctive characteristics were its ears, which were folded forward and down, giving it a teddy-bear look.
After difficult beginnings it its country of origin, Scottish Folds were introduced to North America in the early 1970's where they were very much appreciated.

Peter Gethers, the writer even dedicated a novel to the breed called "The Cat Who Dined at Maximes".

The Scottish Fold has the characteristics of British Shorthair cats, with a medium frame and rounded body. Its tail should never be rigid. A round head and rounded eyes which give it a sweet, wide-eyed expression. Short nose with slight curve visible in its profile. Its fur is short and tick. All colours are accepted.

Reproducing the breeding is quite a gamble, as the folding of its ears will only appear in the third week. Kittens with straight ears are called British or Scottish Straights according to certain cat clubs.

The cat has a mellow and affectionate disposition and loves tranquillity and peace, thus making it timid with strangers. It is very sensitive and therefore much appreciated by painting artists. The cat develops a very special bond with humans; however when it decides it no longer wants to play or be stroked, it will quietly disappear.

It is up to us to respect its moments of intimacy.
