Scottish Fold Shorthair Breed Synopsis




  Scottish Fold Shorthair Breed Standard





This breed occurred as a spontaneous mutation in Scotland.  The unique feature of the breed, from which its name is derived, is the small, rounded, tightly folded shape of the ears, set in a cap-like fashion, exposing a rounded cranium.  Its rounded, well-padded body stands firm on short, coarse legs having no lack of mobility.  The tail should be medium to long, flexible and tapering. The coat is short, dense, and resilient.  It is accepted in a wide variety of colors and patterns.
