It’s hard not to fall madly in love with this recognizable breed the moment you lay eyes on them, but did you know that their folded ears are the result of a dominant gene that affects the cartilage of their ears? What’s more, all Scottish Folds are born with straight ears, which begin to fold at around three weeks, giving their heads that well-known chubby appearance.

PERSONALITY

One of the smartest cat breeds out there, the kind-hearted Scottish Fold has a charming temper and gets along well with everyone in the household. They do, however, prefer the company of one person and they get extremely attached to their chosen human. Scottish Folds love being the center of attention, but don’t like being pushed into doing things they don’t want. Like all cats, they need their own space and would rather be near you than in your lap. You can teach them to fetch and they really enjoy playing games, especially if they are praised and rewarded afterward. Their only drawback is that they tend to experience health problems, but that hasn’t stopped them from becoming one of the most popular cat breeds in the world.
