Scottish Fold Cats
Well-Known for Its Unusual Ears
Sweet natured and demure, many Scottish fold cats have a feature unlike any other cat: folded ears that give the breed an owl-like appearance.
However, not all Scottish fold cats are guaranteed to have the trademark folded ear. At birth, all Scottish fold cats have straight ears; only those with the fold gene will begin to display a change in appearance within one month of age.
What began years ago as a barn cat's random ear mutation has become one of today's most sought-after distinctions in the Scottish fold cat.
