Susan, I am so in love with little philbert. His personality and mine fit perfectly together and we can't leave each others side already he tried to sleep on my face last night though, so I don't think he's going to be in bed with us at night! He is such a happy boy and even after being neutered and having a long flight, he was very playful during the day and cuddly at night and in the morning. He's sweet to Eric as well, although we can both tell he is a ladies man. I took videos of him on my phone and then he would watch them and nuzzle my phone. His current favorite spot is a chair next to a mirror where he can see himself. I think he knows how cute he is. Thank you so much for giving us this sweetheart! We couldn't be any happier and I've never had a cat but so far you have definitely converted me from a dog lover into a cat lover. Have a good day!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.
