Scottish Fold de-registered in the UK half a century ago but popular in America and Japan — 1 Comment

  1. My first cat had folded ears. She had a so called ‘single fold’, so her ears weren’t particularly weird looking, just smaller and thicker, with the tips still not completely opened, and a crimp at the base.
    She wasn’t a Scottish Fold, she was a Moggy.
    I suspect the father might have been a Scottish Fold, since she also had double coat and a semi cobby body type.

    She died last year, aged 19. Now I have three moggies, but i plan to get scottish folds in future, most likely with a single or a double fold. They remember me my first cat, with her small ears and her round face and body.
    I’m doing researches about folds disease and if it is really serious, my cat was quite healthy. She sure suffered from artritis, showing symptoms from the age of 11 years old, however I’ve read that by the age of 12, 90% of cats (not Scottish fold, cats of all breeds) get diagnosed by arthritis.
    I asked to several owner of Scottish fold, but the only witrh sick cats got them brom backyard breeders or from shps, and those are easily monozygotic.
