Highland Fold


Cats of Highland Fold breed are long-wool breed variety of Scottish Fold.

Currently, the vast majority of catteries are working with the Scottish shorthair variations. Longhair Scottish fold option are only beginning to go on the stage of breeding and the show rings.

Highlands are extraordinarily charming and original. Rather, they can be attributed to the group of semi-longhair cats. They have a hair texture very distinctive - volume, silky, does not fall down, and requires minimal maintenance.

The History of the Highland Fold starts from the very first Fold cat Susie. Judging by the pedigree of her descendants, she was a carrier of long hair and mating with normal household cats, her long-haired kittens were born.

Of course, in the mass  they recessive of longhair gene wes passed by Scots exotic cats, which were tied up to the fold, mainly to the introduction of new colors in the breed. Thus, many of the Scottish lines have in recessive the longhair gene and when breeding two shorthair animals, the kittens are born with long hair.

Until now, all the breeders of the debate concerning the development of Scots Highland been unfairly relegated to the side of the planned work. Now very few nurseries boast quality manufacturers of Highlands. However, the situation is changing rapidly.

Earlier woolly folds and straights appeared occasionally in litters of short-Scots. Many long-haired offspring, even short-quality manufacturers have features showing cast-Persian blood. Typically, it is expressed in smoothed profile, "lowered" muzzle, as well as changes in the texture of wool, more reminiscent of Persian. Now that the critical moments of the breed scottish fold is complete, the number of quality animals has increased significantly, exactly like the professional kennels and breeders, breed enthusiasts and hone its nuances, the views of professionals turned, finally, to the Highlands.

Given the momentum of development, one can expect in a year and a half to see the quality Highland at shows, even back in much smaller proportions than the short-Scots.

Highland is certainly worthy of attention and purposeful breeding!
