Highland Fold cats Breed Profile
Coat Type, Color & Grooming:
Highland Folds have coats of variable length, from medium to long; hair is longest on the ruff, leg britches (the long hair along the rear part of the back legs), and plumed tail. Both Folds come in many colors and patterns.
The Highland Fold is a longhaired version of the Scottish Fold. Folds are medium-size cats with a robust, rounded appearance. They have rounded heads, short necks, and large, round, widely spaced eyes. Kittens are born with "normal" ears, but at about two to four weeks of age, some begin to develop a noticeable bending forward of the ears; by three months of age, the fold, which varies in degree from cat to cat, is permanent, giving the cat an owlish look.
Quiet and sweet-natured.
