With her uniquely folded ears, round face and wide eyes, the Scottish Fold is described as looking like a pixie, an owl or a teddy bear. A mellow, loving breed, this cat adapts easily to new environments and enjoys adults, children and other pets. The Scottish Fold usually bonds to one person, following you from room to room like a loyal puppy. This playful, intelligent breed has two coat varieties, longhair and shorthair.

Scottish Folds are normally affectionate, calm and well-behaved. They are highly personable and tend to bond well with their entire human and companion pet family. They are hardy animals, owing this in part to their barn cat ancestors. Scottish Folds typically are content in almost any type of household – rural or urban, busy or quiet. They do well in noisy homes with children and/or other cats and dogs, although they also seem to be just as pleased to be an only pet in a one-person household. While Scottish Folds appreciate attention, affection and play time, they can be quite content to spend their days alone at home napping, while their owners are at work. The Scottish Fold has a very slight, soft meow and is not a particularly vocal breed.

Children & Other Pets
The friendly, laidback Scottish Fold is a perfect choice for families with children and cat-friendly dogs. He loves the attention he receives from children who treat him politely and with respect, and he likes to play and is capable of learning tricks. He is happy to live with cat-friendly dogs, too, thanks to his amiable disposition. Introduce pets slowly and in controlled circumstances to ensure that they learn to get along together.
