Scottish Fold

The notoriously affectionate cat with folded ears

This unique cat owes his heritage to a barn cat named Susie, who was born in the early 1960s with ears that folded downward, caused by a genetic mutation that affects cartilage. These cats are often referred to as owl-like as the result of this unique feature. Unique looking and notoriously affectionate, Scottish Folds come in both long- and shorthaired varieties and any coat colour or combination of colours.
