FIFe classification and history

Country of origin: Scotland - Great Britain.

Scottish Straight are defined as cats that have straight ears and are born to a British parent and a Scottish parent (Fold or Straight); they are completely identical to the British. If they had their ears bent forward, they would instead be called Scottish Fold. In the Scottish selection program, Exotics or American Shorthair may also sometimes be present. Despite having a Scottish parent, Straight's puppies will lose the carrier gene of folded ears. However, if a Straight is paired with a Scottish Fold it will breed puppies with both straight and folded ears. This is in fact the type of selection recommended for obtaining both Straight and Fold puppies. More information

General aspect

Scottish Straight is a medium-sized cat, with the characteristic stocky and massive body inherited from the Scottish Fold. Its hair is short and soft to the touch, so much so that it almost looks like the stuffed animal. It owes its name to the erect position of its ears (Straight in English means straight).
