How to knit Scottish Folds

Scottish Folds possess a charming "children's" look, the beautiful case, silky wool, sweet and sociable temper. And, of course, the touching put ears are a main attraction of skotish-fold. Future manufacturers wishing to receive good kittens need to make everything to receive posterity with these distinctive pedigree signs and to avoid emergence of possible defects.


1. For knitting of skotish-fold skotish-strighta – cats of the same breed, but not with hung, and with direct ears are necessary. For the rest they completely correspond to pedigree signs – possess slightly stretched body, silky wool, the little roundish head on a powerful neck. Strighta meet also among Highland-foldov – the Scottish lop-eared long wool.

Modern standards of breed of it do not allow – kittens turn out larger and massive, they change a shape of the head and tail and structure of wool at the British other. Such kitten will hardly be able to become the champion of an exhibition and to acquire the right for cultivation. Never knit two cats with the hung ears – congenital defects in the form of problems with a backbone and extremities and also the general weakness of an organism are guaranteed to their posterity.

Consider that lop-eared kittens usually are born less. If all kittens are strighta, the owner of a lop-eared cat can receive the monetary compensation equal to kitten cost.

5. Choosing the partner for a cat, consider appearance of the partner – data of kittens depend on it. Estimate a color, quality of wool, correctness of a constitution. Surely make sure that future partner of your animal has a flexible tail. Congenital problems with a backbone – the payment for the put ears of fold, this mutation is shown not so seldom and transferred to posterity. For a show cat the corresponding cat is desirable, he can improve breed of a cat of a brid-class. Owners of animals of a pet-class can be more free in selection of couple for the favourites.

6. Pay attention to degree of coordination of ears. Ideal ears the small, widely placed, directed forward and not supporting contours heads. Above ears with a double fold, skintight to a skull are appreciated. The animals having three folds meet extremely seldom and are highly appreciated very much.

7. Before knitting make sure that the cat is imparted and healthy. At him allocations from eyes and a nose, dandruff on wool should not be observed, he should not be too exhausted. If there are strong indications of an indisposition, it is better to postpone knitting.
