Hi Grandma Sue, Just wanted to send you a new photo with both Wallace and Willie for your testimonials page. They have brought us so much joy and both have unique personalities. Willie is the lover boy. He love to snuggle with both me and Pete. He is so smart. He know how to express his needs (whether it's carrying his favorite toy to you, or pushing his cat treats off the table) and knows when we are telling him something (like off the dining room table). Wallace is the mischievous one and is always up for a game of fetch. He's not above ambushing his brother if he's under the sheets or in the fresh laundry basket. Both like to horse around and wrestle with each other and when they are not wrestling they are giving us barrel rolls at our feet or just simply hanging out in the same room. They must always be where we are and rarely want to be apart from us (with exception of chasing bugs on the back deck). Thank you again for such great cats!Read More Testimonials
In 1961, a shepherd, William Ross, spied a white cat playing in a farm yard near the Scottish town of Coupar Angus. William Ross noticed that this cat's ears were permanently folded forward and downward. The people who owned this cat were unable to provide any details of its origin.
Her name was Susie and all Scottish folds are descendents of this white barnyard cat. The people who owned Susie promised that if she ever had folded eared kittens, they would give one to the Rosses. About a year later Susie had two kittens a male (who was later neutered) and a female. The Rosses received the female and named her Snooks.
Three months later Susie was killed by a car. Wishing to perpetuate the folded-eared cats, the Rosses acquired a white British Shorthair to breed with the son of Snooks, a grandson of Susie. They registered their Cattery with the Governing Council of Cat Fancy (GCCF) in Great Britain. Scottish Folds emigrated to the United States in the early 1970's and began their march to acceptance to the Cat registry associations.
Over the past 30 years, the Scottish Fold has developed a look of its own, as you can see reflected in the pictures of our kittens and cats.
