Scottish Fold

A Scottish fold cat is like any other cat but as well as it can also be VERY different to other cats. Scottish fold cats are different from other cats for their ears are folded. As Scottish fold kittens ears are not actually folded at birth and they are born with normal ears at first and then at their first 6-7 weeks of life their ears begin to fold out. If you are lucky, your Scottish fold will be born with folded ears but as it is a high rarity.

First Sights

The first reported Scottish fold was sighted on a farm in Scotland by a farmer named William Ross. As for this he became interested and asked then the owner of the cat if he could have one of they younger Folds. The kitten he took,Susie is her name,was introduced to the farm and Ross was very fascinated.
