Cat Breed Description

The Scottish Fold cat breed is best known for its distinctive ears, which are folded forward and down, and by its large rounded eyes, which give it a sweet, wide-eyed expression. Their small, folded ears are unusually expressive, more so than an average cat's "normal" ears. They have soft, chirpy voices they do not use often.

The Scottish Fold personality is mellow and affectionate, although the activity level can vary depending on whether it has an ancestry of mostly-British Shorthair or mostly-American Shorthair; a Fold with more British ancestry will be more laid-back than one who's more American.

Buyers of these wonderful cats should be aware that some Scottish Fold cats are prone to problems of hardening cartilige. Show Scottish Folds are taught to accept handling of their tails as judges check for one of the clearer signs of this hardening -- stiffening of the tail. As this problem does not generally show up in young Scottish Folds, be sure to discuss this issue with the breeder and what guarantees the breeder will make against this condition in the future.
