History of the Scottish Fold ?
The first Scottish Fold was a white barn cat that was called Susie, who was found in 1961 at a farm near Coupar Angus, Perthshire, Scotland. With her folded ear she resembled an owl. Two of her kittens were born with the same folded ear so a neighbouring farmer by the name of William Ross acquired one of the kittens and registered the breed with the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) in 1966. With the help of geneticist Pat Turner, Ross started to breed the Scottish Fold. Within the first three years, 76 kittens were produced from the breeding program and all of those and any other Scottish Fold cat is related to Susie.
