Scottish Fold

With her uniquely folded ears, round face and wide eyes, the Scottish Fold is described as looking like a pixie, an owl or a teddy bear. A mellow, loving breed, this cat adapts easily to new environments and enjoys adults, children and other pets. The Scottish Fold usually bonds to one person, following you from room to room like a loyal puppy. This playful, intelligent breed has two coat varieties, longhair and shorthair.
Living Considerations
  • Good in multi-pet households
  • Not hypoallergenic
Did you know?
All Scottish Folds can be traced back to a white female barn cat with unique folded ears, named “Susie,” who was born in 1961 on a farm near Coupar Angus in the Tayside Region of Scotland.
