The History of Scottish Folds
In 1961 a shepherd by the name of William Ross spotted the first known Scottish Fold cat at a farm near Coupar Angus in the Tayside Region of Scotland, Northwest of Dundee. The breed developed from a kitten named Susie found near a barn with folded ears giving the impression of a pixie or teddy bear.
By 1978 the Scottish Fold had captured the hearts of American cat lovers and was granted Championship status by The Cat Fanciers’ Association.
There are 2 types of Scottish Folds, the Folded ear and the Straight ear. The Folded ear comes from an incomplete dominate gene that resulted in a spontaneous mutation causing the folded ears.
All Scottish Folds are born with straight ears. After 3 or 4 weeks their ears will start to fold or stay straight. 2 folded ears cannot be breed together as it will cause all kinds of deformities and can even cause death. Scottish Folds must be bred with a Straight ear. It’s also impossible to predict which kittens have the folded ears.
