Scottish Shorthair

The Scottish Shorthair is the straight-eared version of the Scottish Fold and they occur naturally in Scottish Fold litters.

The folded ear gene stems from a Scottish farm cat which produced two folded-ear kittens in 1963. From one of these all Folds (and all Scottish Shorthairs) are descended.

With a relatively short, well-rounded body with a short coat, the Fold has a short nose and prominent cheeks.

Breeding of Scottish Folds is generally to the British Shorthair, so temperament is similar - being home loving and fond of their owners. The Scottish Shorthair is intelligent, gentle and even-tempered.
