In 1961 a shepherd by the name of William Ross spotted the first known Scottish Fold cat at a farm near Coupar Angus in the Tayside Region of Scotland, Northwest of Dundee. The unique thing about this cat was that her ears folded forward and downward on her head. Scottish Folds come in two types: folded ear and straight (normal) ear. The folded ear is produced by an incomplete dominant gene and is the result of a spontaneous mutation. For many years, the Scottish Fold has been named the country's most popular breed according to the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF), and with its affectionate nature and teddy-bear good looks, it's not hard to see why. As far as personality goes, the Scottish Fold is an amazing cat.

CHOOSING A CAT

Choosing between a male and a female is not an easy task, as both make wonderful companions. Differences in personality are mostly attributable to the fact that everyone has something unique about them, rather than to male vs. female differences.
