What is a Scottish Fold?
The Scottish Fold is a special breed of cat. They have a unique folded ear that makes them easy to spot. The Scottish fold is a blend of other breeds: The British and American shorthairs.
The first Scottish Fold was found on a farm in Scotland in 1961. Her name was Susie. She had white fur. A man named William Ross adopted one of her kittens, and named it Snooks. The kitten also shared the folded ear trait.
Snooks had kittens, and the trait proved dominant. Her kittens were born with folded ears. These kittens were called lop-eared cats, but later named Scottish Folds for the country they came from, Scotland.
