Scottish Fold cats are prone to deafness and skeletal deformities. These health issues are increased with breeding practices. It's important to get a cat's breeding history before purchasing one.
Kittens are born with straight ears, and there's no guarantee that the ears will fold. Owners of Scottish Fold cats may notice excessive wax build-up.
The breed's disposition is good, and they adapt well. They are intelligent and playful, keeping their youthful attitude into adulthood. They will single out one person to become attached to in a family. Despite possible health issues, this cat's loving personality make it a good candidate for a family to purchase as a family pet.
