Type: Scottish Fold Cat
Rarity: Limited Edition
All Scottish Folds in existence can trace their lineage to Susie, a white barn cat born with the characteristic ears, and the ancestor of all Fold cats. Interestingly, they are NOT accepted as a true breed in their native Scotland. Fold kittens are born with normal ears, and the characteristic folding develops like a Siamese's points as the kitten matures. There are various degrees of folding, and only certain ones are recognised as show quality. They are also known for their wide eyes, soft, chirpy voices, and mellow dispositions, as well as a number of charming poses that appear to be unique to these adorable cats. The longhaired variety, developed later, is often known as a Highland Fold. In Australia, Scottish Folds with "normal" ears are known as Scottish Shorthairs.
Scottish Folds are heir to a genetic tendency to hardening of the cartilage, first and most noticable in their tails, which will stiffen with age. Reputable breeders never cross Fold to Fold, as this aggravates the tendency. Because of this, cat fancier organizations recognise both the British and American Shorthairs as acceptable crosses in a Fold's pedigree.
