Your popcorn cat is still quite the jumper, but his all time favorite game is fetch. He'll bring a ball over and stare and mew at you if you don't notice, and he'll bring it right back once thrown for a good 30-40 minutes at a time! It's adorable. He's very much a cuddles and a lap cat, and sleeps curled up flush on my right side every single night. Besides fetch, his favorite thing in the entire world is belly rubs. I swear he spends more time on his bag spread eagle than anything else! He's the happiest, sweetest boy in the world!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.
