Cat Breed of the Day: Scottish Fold

Scottish_Fold_1

From the CFA: Scottish Fold kittens are born with straight ears. At about three to four weeks of age, their ears fold…or they don’t! It is usually around eleven to twelve weeks of age that the breeder can determine the quality. Due to the rarity of the Fold, AND due to the fact that not every kitten born has folded ears, it is very hard for the supply to keep up with the demand. 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.

If any of you out there own a Scottish Fold then we’d love for you to share some pictures and stories with us.   As usual we decided to put together a photo gallery for all of you that captures some of the best shots of Scottish Folds we could find.  Be sure to click “next” under each picture to view them all!
