We got Jackie, the best edition to the family we could have asked for, from Sue’s Quietime Cattery. Sue handled everything for us, start to finish, to get Jackie from Montana to our home in Massachusetts. Our experience with Sue and her Quietime Cattery was the most professional encounter we have ever had. Little Jackie is just a loving cuddle bug. She sleeps with my mother every night… those two are inseparable! When we first got " Jackie Q ", we expected that our three male cats would give their new little sister a hard time. However, this was not the case at all. Tiny little Jackie let them know that she was in charge immediately. She has the best personality, and she does things to make us all laugh daily. To Jackie, any miscellaneous item around the house is either a toy or her own personal chair. She’s beautiful inside and out and she knows it! But as much of a princess as she is, she’s always there to snuggle up and watch TV with the family. We love her endlessly, and she has become a big part of our family.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.
