The first Scottish Fold was found in 1961 by a Scottish Farmer. This little white spotted kitten had folded ears. This cat when it was mated produced folded ear kittens. The gene that produced the folded ears was dominant. Eventually the British Blue Shorthair was bred into this foundation breed and developed what is now known and the Scottish Fold. The Scottish Fold is popular in the United States and is relatively unknown in the United Kingdom. The only allowable outcross breeding for the Scottish Fold Cats are with the British Shorthair and the American Shorthair.
The Scottish Fold Cats coat is relatively simple with regular brushing is recommended. These Cats ears will also need to be checked often.
