Today's Scottish Folds trace their ancestry to Susie, a white barn cat born in Scotland in 1961 with uniquely folded ears. Susie had a litter of kittens that included a female with folded ears, which in turn produced a fold-eared male. A London breeder determined that a dominant mutant gene was responsible for the folded ears. These quiet, sweet-natured, easygoing cats are most content when they are around people and dislike being alone. Although Folds prefer the company of humans, another cat will satisfy their need for companionship if nobody is at home for much of the day.
Folds are medium-size cats with a robust, rounded appearance. They have rounded heads, short necks, and large, round, widely spaced eyes. Kittens are born with "normal" ears, but at about two to four weeks of age, some begin to develop a noticeable bending forward of the ears; by three months of age, the fold, which varies in degree from cat to cat, is permanent, giving the cat an owlish look. Scottish Folds have dense coats that stand out from their bodies. They come in many colors and patterns.
Weight: 10 to 12 lbs.
