Dear Susan-- Thank you so much for our little bundle of joy. We named her "Fiona Forever After" because she is just like a princess fairytale and keeps growing more beautiful everyday. My 9-year-old son, Kiegan, is just thrilled with her. He loves to play chase with her using feathers and laser light---what enjoyment she has brought to our lives. Gryffindor, our 2 yr old cat has a "baby sister" now and couldn't be happier to share his abode with her. She also incredibly patient with my two year old human child...It is like she knows he is a baby, and needs patience. I haven't worked with many Scottish Folds in my practice as a veterinarian, but she is all that I hoped she would be. I'm not disappointed in my choice of this breed and would recommend one to anyone, any day of the week. Everyone at work has fallen in love with her beauty and good nature as well. Best regards, Amber, Kiegan, Quinlan, and GryffindorRead 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.
