Scottish Longhair

The Scottish Longhair is the straight-eared, longhair version of the Scottish Fold and they occur naturally in Scottish Fold litters.

The folded ear gene stems from a Scottish farm cat which produced two folded-ear kittens in 1963. From one of these all Folds (and all Scottish Longhairs) are descended.

With a relatively short, well-rounded body, the Fold has a short nose and prominent cheeks.

Breeding of Scottish Folds is generally to the British Shorthair, so temperament is similar - being home loving and fond of their owners. The Scottish Longhair is intelligent, gentle and even-tempered.
